X Rider First Electric Highway Motorcycle to Receive EPA Certification

The Xtreme Green Products electric motorcycle, the X Rider, has become the first electric highway motorcycle to receive a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Certificate of Conformity. This certification, which is mandated by the Clean Air Act of 1990, allows the X Rider to legally travel on U.S. highways.

Las Vegas, NV, July 09, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Xtreme Green Products, Inc. (XGP), an eco-vehicle company specializing in the development of electric land vehicles and personal watercraft, has announced today that the X Rider has become the first electric highway motorcycle to receive a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Certificate of Conformity.

The EPA Certificate of Conformity is a required certification for vehicles to operate on U.S. roads and highways. The certification was mandated by the Clean Air Act of 1990 to certify that vehicles conform to all EPA regulations and emission standards.

“Receiving the EPA Certificate of Conformity for the X Rider electric motorcycle represents an important milestone for Xtreme Green Products,” commented Claire Roth, Vice President of Government Affairs at Xtreme Green Products. “For the past six months, we have worked diligently with the EPA to develop procedures for certifying electric motorcycles such as the X Rider. Now that the X Rider is certified, it is now designated as operational on U.S. highways and officially qualifies for electric vehicle tax credits offered through the federal government’s stimulus package,” she added.

The X Rider is the ultimate electric, two-passenger, Green Urban Commuter. This powerful, yet efficient, electric vehicle can travel up to 65 miles per hour with a range over 100 miles per charge. Features of the X Rider include a proprietary power management system, allowing added safety and battery life, a built in battery charger that allows the X Rider to fully charged in less than 3 hours, and a 4500 watt, 72 volt proprietary hub motor developed to maximize top speed and range. With an operational cost as low as $0.003 per mile, the X Rider is the perfect eco-friendly alternative to traditional fuel-powered transportation.

Rough Country Offers Support for HD Tie Rod

Chevy Tie Rod Sleeve

Dyersburg, TN (Jun 16, 2009) – One area seriously lacking on the Chevy HD is the steering link.

That problem is only intensified when you beef up the truck’s appearance with an off-road tire and wheel package. Rough Country combats this issue with its new HD Tie Rod Sleeve. Taking the outside diameter from .5” to 1”, this steel sleeve strengthens the steering components on the HD with an install time of only an hour. Rough Country’s HD Tie Rod Sleeve simply takes the place of the stock jam nut giving you sturdy assurance that handling issues are not a concern for you anymore.
