Managing motorcycles: opportunities to reduce pollution and fuel use from two- and three-wheeled vehicles
This report by ICCT reviews current trends in motorcycle emissions and fuel efficiency technology. Summarizes policy approaches to improve motorcycle emission and energy performance, and discusses what is required to implement these policies.
The purpose of this report is to identify how nations can best manage their growing ranks of two- and three-wheelers. National and local decision makers will need focused and well-designed policy tools, including regulations and incentive strategies, to improve the environmental performance of these popular vehicles. The policy guidance provided in this report stems from the cumulative experience of regulators and other experts in the field. While the recommendations are primarily aimed at countries that are just beginning to regulate motorcycles, this report may also prove helpful to policymakers who are seeking to improve motorcycle policies that have already been adopted.
