SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), a motor vehicle that was not 
originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS shall be 
refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided that 
the motor vehicle is substantially similar to a motor vehicle 
originally manufactured for sale in the United States, certified under 
49 U.S.C. 30115, and of the same model year as the model of the motor 
vehicle to be compared, and is capable of being readily altered to 
conform to all applicable FMVSS.
    Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either 
manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 
49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords 
interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the 
close of the comment period, NHTSA decides, on the basis of the 
petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is 
eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in 
the Federal Register.
    J.K. Technologies, LLC, of Baltimore, Maryland (``J.K.'') 
(Registered Importer 90-006) has petitioned NHTSA to decide whether 
non-U.S. certified 2000-2001 Moto Guzzi California motorcycles are 
eligible for importation into the United States. The vehicles that J.K. 
believes are substantially similar are 2000-2001 Moto Guzzi California 
motorcycles that were manufactured for sale in the United States and 
certified by their manufacturer as conforming to all applicable FMVSS.
    The petitioner claims that it carefully compared non-U.S. certified 
2000-2001 Moto Guzzi California motorcycles to their U.S. certified 
counterparts, and found the vehicles to be substantially similar with 
respect to compliance with most FMVSS.
    J.K. submitted information with its petition intended to 
demonstrate that non-U.S. certified 2000-2001 Moto Guzzi California 
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 2000-
2001 Moto Guzzi California 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, 120 Tire Selection and Rims for Vehicles 
other than Passenger Cars, and 122 Motorcycle Brake Systems.
    The petitioner further contends that the vehicles are capable of 
being readily altered to meet the following standards, in the manner 
indicated below:
    Standard No. 108 Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated 
Equipment: Installation of the following U.S.-certified components on 
vehicles not already so equipped: (a) headlamps; (b) front and rear 
side-mounted reflex reflectors; and (c) rear-mounted reflex reflector.
    Standard No. 111 Rearview Mirrors: Inspection of all vehicles, and 
installation of U.S.-model rearview mirrors on vehicles that are not 
already so equipped.
    Standard No. 123 Motorcycle Controls and Displays: Installation of 
a U.S.-model instrument cluster to meet the requirements of this 
standard.
    Standard No. 205 Glazing Materials: Inspection of all vehicles, and 
removal of noncompliant glazing or replacement of the glazing with 
U.S.-certified components on vehicles that are not already so equipped.
    All comments received before the close of business on the closing 
date indicated above will be considered, and will be available for 
examination in the docket at the above address both before and after 
that date. To the extent possible, comments filed after the closing 
date will also be considered. Notice of final action on the petition
