New Motorcycle Sale Law Ensures Level Playing Field For Indiana

State Senator Ed Charbonneau

This Sunday, fully-assembled motorcycles will be available for purchase to Hoosiers at Indiana dealerships thanks to a new law authored by State Senator Ed Charbonneau.

Currently, state law prohibits the sale of motorcycles on Sunday, making their purchase a class B misdemeanor. However, Senate Enrolled Act 192 repeals that ban, aiming to not only help local business owners increase profit, but Charbonneau says it will also add convenience for Indiana customers.

Charbonneau says the sale of motorcycles on Sunday will level the playing field and make Indiana’s law consistent with neighboring states.

The act was approved by both chambers and signed into law by Governor Mitch Daniels on March 16, and it will take effect July 1.
