King of Prussia, PA – October 5, 2006 – Devon Motorcycles, Inc., the registered Department of Transportation (DOT) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) agent for the Jincheng Corporation, China’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles, today announced that it has received EPA certification on its 150cc, 70cc, and 50cc dirt bikes. The company will celebrate the approval with the media and public at its inaugural “Jincheng Day” event on Saturday, October 7, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Cycle City on West Chester Pike in Broomall, Pennsylvania.
Legislation requires all automotive vehicles imported into the United States to be certified by the EPA before distribution. This was Devon Motorcycles’ first application.
“This is outstanding news for Devon Motorcycles and Jincheng, and an important step towards our expansion in the United States,” says Ruth Wu, vice president of operations for Devon Motorcycles. “China is the world’s second largest motorcycle exporter, and Jincheng is a major player in this industry. Their line of durable, safe, and affordable dirt bikes provides a competitive alternative to high-priced bike manufacturers. We are proud to offer Jincheng products to our dealers across the United States.”
“Devon Motorcycles and Jincheng form an excellent team,” says Bruce Helmke, manager of Cycle City, a Devon Motorcycle dealer. “I have tremendous confidence in their ability to make an immediate impact on the American motorcycle industry, and look forward to stocking future Jincheng models.”
Devon Motorcycles’ “Jincheng Day” is open to the public and will feature the certified dirt bikes. The company will also welcome Stella Wang, a factory representative from Jincheng, to the event. Attendees can enter a raffle to win bike helmets, a stainless steel grill, and other prizes. Food will be provided.
