Honda ATV First to Meet EPA 2006 Off-Highway emissions Standards

Jun. 15, 2004 By ORC STAFF

Torrance, CA - The 2005 Honda TRX400EX has just received the first Certificate of Conformity awarded by the Environmental Protection Agency, under the new low emissions regulations, adopted late last year, for recreation vehicles and engines, beginning in 2006.

Widely acknowledged as a leader in safety and environmental technology, Honda has a long list of "firsts" in applying new thinking and technologies to production vehicles.

"We're extremely pleased and excited to offer our customers environmentally-friendly machines that don't sacrifice anything in terms of performance and fun", said Ray Blank, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Motorcycle Division Vice President. "We take a great deal of pride in being the first manufacturer to receive the EPA's certification for the 2006 regulations that apply to off-highway motorcycles, and ATVs, well before the new federal standards take effect."

The TRX400EX will be available for sale after the Honda dealer convention in September 2004, where seven additional 2005 Honda ATV models that meet the 2006 EPA regulation will also be announced.
