Ban On Kids Motorcycles
The Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act of 2008 is a sweeping new
law that impacts a broad spectrum of our economy. The motorcycle
industry is also affected as major motorcycle manufacturers have been
forced to discontinue the sale of small motorcycles that are intended
for use by children twelve years of age and younger. This law affects
these motorcycles due to the potential for lead content in some
components that may exceed strict lead content limits.
The CPSIA defines a children’s product as one designed or intended primarily for twelve years of age or younger, and/or a product that is commonly viewed by consumers as being intended for use by a child twelve years of age or younger. Further, a childs product is defined by how it is represented in its packaging, display, promotion and/or advertising as it targeted to users twelve years of age or younger.
BBR Motorsports products are designed, manufactured and marketed to adult consumers as they are built to adapt recreational motorcycles to adult competition standards. Every BBR product is manufactured with the intent to strengthen and improve the durability and performance to accommodate the requirements of full-size adult riders.
We do not believe it is the CPSIA’s intent to ban youth motorcycle sales to children. We are all interested in having appropriately sized youth models available for parents to purchase for their children, and do not want to see young riders tempted to use adult size motorcycles and ATV’s. The commission is working with motorcycle industry executives to take the appropriate action. Until a resolution is reached, BBR intends to comply with CPSIA requirements and will continue to manufacture, market and sell products to adult consumers only. BBR will not sell any items for use by consumers twelve years of age and younger.
BBR will continue to be your source for adult 4-stroke playbike performance aftermarket components. We invite you to contact us anytime with any questions you may have.
