Maricopa County in Arizona only recently dropped the requirement for motorcycles to be inspected. There was, I think, a 5 year old cutoff for motorcycles. Now it's not required. Here in Las Vegas I haven't heard anything about a requirement but I haven't gone to switch my registration over yet. Will repost if I have to get it done.

Maryland requires newly purchased bikes to be inspected unless you're getting "Historic Tags" in which case no inspection is required. No inspections at all after that nor emissions for that matter.

There is no inspection here in Illinois but if you live in the Chicago, you are required to purchase an additional city tag. $65 dollars and I do it every year otherwise it's a ticketable offense either by the cops or the meter maids since they just merged the DMV database with the City of Chicago's tag and sticker database.

I think they call it city street use tax. It's bogus but if I don't do it I know I'll be knicked for it.

Emissions are county by county.

Why should a motorcycle be exempt. You're sharing public roads. If your bike malfunctions it can cause harm to others. A lot of negligent owners of things and this especially applies to many bikes on the road.

true, but on our side looking at NY, why do people have to pay so much more cumulatively for inspections emissions taxes, etc.?

That's probably only applicable to bikes. If it makes you feel better, registration is 42 every year at April. Everything else I'm sure we get killed on.
