Quad bikes will not be available after 20/10/21 due to a new ACCC legislation imposed

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

Due to the new legislation, ( F2019L01321 on the Federal Register of Legislation ) meaning new Quad bikes will have to be sold with Rollover Protection, all major Quad Bike Distributors have withdrawn from the Australian market. Australia is only 2.8% of the Global market, so the other 97.2% of the global market does not have a problem with Quad bikes as they are sold from the factory.

Incorrect statistics were used in coming to the decision to sign off on the legislation and professional global advice was not listened or adhered to, add to this the fact the people who were instrumental in the change of legislation had no idea what they were talking about.

Farmers were never asked before this legislation was passed, so this means higher operating expenses for all Farming Businesses, along with decreased productivity and efficiency on all Farming Businesses that use Quad bikes. Farmers do not want a bar of it.

Honda alone have stated that 40 to 60 Rural Honda Motorcycle Dealers may have to close the doors as Quad bikes are in many cases at least 40% if not more of there turnover, and this is only the Honda Brand.. Add to this the mass unemployment within the 6 major brands plus several more reputable Asian brands.

It is ironic that this whole debate started from a backyard Quadbar Operation that only had his best interests at heart.

Please help us save more financial stress on farmers as well as more rural agriculture businesses closing the doors.
