Joe, can you post where you found this? I have searched Google and can not find this new information.

I have been waiting for this for years.

I am sure you are right. I have been waiting for this to become effective for a couple of years.

Here is a message from azatvriders.org

EMISSIONS TESTING ADEQ STATEMENT




Air Quality Division: Vehicle Emissions: Collectible Vehicles and Tucson Motorcycles and Phoenix Motorcycles

Collectible Vehicles and Tucson Motorcycles

A 2002 analysis showed that the testing and repair of collectible vehicles in the Phoenix area, and of collectible vehicles and motorcycles in the Tucson area, does not provide a significant air quality benefit. Subsequently, in 2005 the Arizona Legislature passed House Bill 2357 to authorize the exemption of these vehicles. The exemptions required the approval of the U.S. EPA and a request for approval of the exemptions was submitted to the U.S. EPA on Dec. 23, 2005 and supplemented on October 03, 2006. Copies of the submittal are available upon request by calling the State Implementation Plan Unit at (602) 771-2373. The U.S. EPA's approval became effective on April 30, 2007 (March 30, 2007; 72 FR 15046)

ADEQ and the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division Leaving ADEQ Web site have begun to implement this exemption. Owners of collectible vehicles must contact their insurance carriers to arrange for the required insurance. The carrier will notify MVD electronically, allowing the vehicle to be registered as a collectible vehicle.

Phoenix Motorcycles

In 2008, the Arizona Legislature passed House Bill 2280 authorizing the exemption of motorcycles from emissions testing requirements in the Phoenix area. The exemption required the approval of the U.S. EPA by July 2014 (as authorized by House Bill 2033 Leaving ADEQ Web site in April 2010 and extended by House Bill 2073 Leaving ADEQ Web site in 2012).) A request for approval of the exemption was submitted to the U.S. EPA on November 10, 2009. An addendum was submitted on January 12, 2011. Copies of the submittals are available upon request by calling the SIP Unit at (602) 771-2373. The U.S. EPA's approval becomes effective on June 21, 2013 (78 FR 30209; May 22, 2013). After June 21, 2013, motorcycles in the metro Phoenix area will no longer be required to be tested.

I hope this is true because it's a waste of time and energy to trailer over there and go through the idle test etc... If this is true I applaud the efforts made to get this changed.
