CARB Certifies the 2020 Harley-Davidson Softail Standard

Another Cruiser in the HD Lineup Harley-Davidson has played the cruiser game for a long time. Some (including myself) would say the company has gone after that market for too long instead of branching out with its lineup. Harley seems to be trying to branch out, but it’s not leaving cruiser motorcycles behind. Harley just had a new model certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), according to Motorcycle.com. This means the Softail Standard will be coming.  This isn’t the first time...

Indian Motorcycle Will Likely Release a Scout Bobber Sixty This Year

A Baby Scout Bobber Could be Delivered Soon The Indian Scout family could have a new baby model soon. The other smaller-displacement bike would be more of a little badass than the Scout Sixty. It’d be a Scout Bobber Sixty. According to some new California Air Resources Board (CARB) filings, the motorcycle company has a 2020 Indian Scout Bobber sixty for the 2020 model year.

White House and California Still Discussing Emission Rules, Incredibly

Greenhouse gas tax wasn’t supposed to be about raising revenue – or funding the bullet train

It seems impossible to reduce any tax in California once it’s baked into some government spending plan. A powerful example is the greenhouse gas tax we impose on some companies in California, under cover of doing something good for the global environment. To reduce GHG emissions, California requires large emitters to obtain a permit from the California Air Resources Board. CARB sets overall limits on GHG’s, declining 3 percent every year. To comply, a GHG emitter has to lower its emissions, or b...

California Considers Banning Internal Combustion Engines To Meet Emissions Goals

New submitter Rick Schumann writes about California considering a ban on internal combustion engines: The ban on internal-combustion engine automobiles would be at least 10 years away, and it's unclear at this early stage if it would ban only sales and use of new cars, or ban existing cars as well. There's also no mention of two (or three) wheeled vehicles at this stage. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is nevertheless considering this seriously, in order to meet its ambitious emissions...
