Current Bill Summary

SB 1010 - Currently, Missouri law regulates motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle franchise practices. This act instead applies all current franchise practice provisions applicable to motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles to "powersport vehicles", defined as any motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle, motorized bicycle, motortricycle, recreational off-highway vehicle, utility vehicle, or personal watercraft.

Currently, it is considered an unlawful practice under the Merchandising Practices Act to fail to pay reasonable compensation to a franchisee upon a franchise cancellation for any new, undamaged and unsold motorcycle or all-terrain vehicle purchased from the franchisor in the last 120 days that has less than 25 miles on the odometer. Under this act, it is an unlawful practice to fail to pay such compensation for any new, undamaged, unsold, untitled powersport vehicle in the current model year or in the previous 2 model years that has less than 75 miles on the odometer.

This act is identical to SB 367 (2017).
