eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in 
the Federal Register.
    US SPECS of Aberdeen, Maryland (Registered Importer 03-321) has 
petitioned NHTSA to decide whether non-U.S. certified 1999-2006 Suzuki 
GXS1300R motorcycles are eligible for importation into the United

demonstrate that non-U.S. certified 1999-2006 Suzuki GXS1300R 
motorcycles, as originally manufactured, conform to many FMVSS in the 
same manner as their U.S. certified counterparts, or are capable of 
being readily altered to conform to those standards.
    Specifically, the petitioner claims that non-U.S. certified 1999-
2006 Suzuki GXS1300R motorcycles are identical to their U.S. certified 
counterparts with respect to compliance with Standard Nos. 106 Brake 
Hoses, 116 Brake Fluid, 119 New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles other than 
Passenger Cars, and 122 Motorcycle Brake Systems.

being readily altered to meet the following standards, in the manner 
indicated below:

Equipment: inspection of all vehicles and replacement of the following 
with U.S.-model components on vehicles not already so equipped: (a)
