Iran Beleaguered Bike Industry on Course for Overhaul

Iranian motorbike makers have ten months to upgrade their facilities to meet Euro4 standards and the country's automotive inspection centers are on the fast track to get new equipment so as to become able to enforce the latest regulations.
The Department of Environment's deputy director, Masoud Tajrishi, cited a lack of testing equipment as the reason for granting motorcycle manufacturers a ten-month-long reprieve from the tightened environmental standards, ISNA reported.
Under a government directive issued in 2014, Iranian motorbike makers were required to renovate their factories by March 2018 so as to become able to produce bikes in compliance with Euro4 emission standards instead of the currently enforced Euro3.
The deadline arrived with the year beginning in March and production of motorcycles was suspended when it became clear that the manufacturers had not been adequately outfitted to make Euro4 two-wheelers.
