The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act (RPM Act, H.R. 350) was reintroduced in the House by U.S. Reps. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.). The bi-partisan RPM Act would ensure that converting motor vehicles into competition-only vehicles remains legal. Street motorcycles are considered motor vehicles under the Clean Air Act. A Senate version of the RPM Act will be introduced in the coming weeks.

The act states that it was the clear intent of Congress when passing and amending the Clean Air Act that motor vehicles, including motorcycles, used solely for competition would be exempt from the Clean Air Act’s prohibitions against modifying emission control devices.

The American Motorcyclist Association supports the bill and its protections for amateur and professional racing enthusiasts.

Now more than ever, it is crucial that you and your riding friends become members of the AMA to help protect our riding freedoms. More members mean more clout against the opponents of motorcycling. That support will help fight for your rights – on the road, trail and racetrack and in the halls of government. If you are a motorcycle rider, join the AMA at
