$7,000 in Fines Paid by San Diego Indian Motorcycles

This page finalized March 20, 2008


The Mobile Source Enforcement Section in conjunction with the Air Resources Board Office of Legal Affairs, and the California Attorney General's Office have entered into two different Settlement Agreements - one with John McDonnell (former owner of 22 Vengeance Performance Products) and one with Richard Urban of BCS West, aka San Diego Indian. During a routine inspection at San Diego Indian Motorcycle Company, it was found that some of the models that were being offered for sale were missing emissions controls, and one (1) model had no emission control equipment at all. The missing emission controls were all part of the evaporative control system that is required for all on-road motorcycles certified and sold in California. As part of the corrective action, each motorcycle was returned to its certified configuration. Richard Urban also agreed to pay $7,000 into the Air Pollution Control Fund to settle this matter.
