Great news: we've received our California Air Resource Board (CARB) approval. Our motorcycles are now available for registration in California!
The CARB testing process happened concurrently with our EPA testing, but it was a wholly different test. CARB certification is largely interested in limiting evaporative emissions, so any possible outlet for un-combusted gasoline (fuel cap, carburetor, exhaust, etc.) was "sniffed" to ensure compliance. Our California-bound motorcycles will come fitted with a carbon canister that captures any off-gassing from the motorcycle.
We're very excited for the growth opportunities this affords Janus Motorcycles. From the Redwoods to the Sierras to Highway 1, we can't wait to get some Janus 250's cruising through the Golden State!
