NOT SO QUICK BASH MASTER the epa cert. was not required for this first run of up to 75 units produced. after that, each model must go through the epa lab for certification. 2 things...that is not cheap, but more importantly is how tough passing that test can be. that is why the number of even a 50cc 2-stroke moped has dwindled to just a few available in the u.s. i know the janus guys are looking for a suitable air cooled / retro looking motor such as the one that sym puts into their wolf classic 150. btw, i know the wolf very well, and it is every inch of the quality of a honda....and yes, they build bikes and autos for honda.
