Viper Motorcycles Moves to Hopkins, Minn.

Viper Motorcycle Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Viper Powersports Inc., announced that it has successfully bought out its Big Lake, MN facility lease and has moved into a new state-of-the-art facility located at 10895 Excelsior Blvd. Suite 203 Hopkins, MN 55343.

John Silseth II, CEO, stated, "After many years of developing our own proprietary motorcycles and motorcycle engines and outsourcing production, Viper is now solely focused on building bikes and its bottom line. Our EPA and CARB testing has been successfully completed and a Limited number of 2008 production bikes were released with positive feedback allowing us to ramp up to commercial volume shipments scheduled to occur out of our new facility in the first quarter of 2009."

Fred Proctor, Viper Motorcycle Company GM, stated, "By moving into the new facility, Viper brings its products closer to major markets of opportunity, provides easier access for potential dealers to tour the facilities while at the same time is dramatically lowering its costs. The new 9000 Sq. Ft assembly facility features a showroom and assembly area that is ideal for our next three years of planned growth."
