COST EVALUATION FOR NINE FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE STANDARDS. VOLUME III: FMVSS 122 (MOTORCYCLE BRAKE SYSTEMS)
A program was conducted to determine if implementation consumer cost and weight variance resulted from the establishment of the standard in January 1974. Five models of motorcycle brake systems were examined. The same components existed for both the implementation year and the year prior to implementation. A further check indicated that the standard was being met for several years prior to the implementation date. The Honda Model 350 changed to a Model 360. The change in components were believed by the Contractor to be due to design requirements rather than the standard. It was concluded that the cost of implementation of the standard in January 1974 was zero. A summary of cost data was presented for each model studied.
