Also, American Lifan will post a $300,000 to $500,000 bond to satisfy any potential future penalties involving importation of motorcycles, engines and RVs manufactured by China Lifan Industry (Group) Co. Ltd. in the 2014-2016 model years, the agency said.

American Lifan imported and sold nearly 28,000 vehicles and engines made by China Lifan that did not comply with federal emissions limits under the Clean Air Act, according to the EPA.
