33,000 Bikes Would Be Sold Exclusively Through Harley Stores
Frank White has been working to put together a manufacturing partner with his ATK Motorcycles off-road company for the better part of a year, and it looks as though he’s finally done it. Last week, ATK announced it signed a $100 million manufacturing deal with S&T Motors Co., Ltd., to produce 33,000 motorcycles over the next four years.
The pact calls for S&T to produce the motorcycles at its Korean facilities next year and then begin assembling them at the ATK facility near Salt Lake City after that. S&T Motors is a Korean manufacturer that began developing and selling ATVs, scooters and motorcycles in 1978. Today, it sells powersports equipment under the Hyosung brand around the world, and it expects to generate annual sales in 2011 of $US 300 million, according to its website. It employs about 350 persons. Here is more information on S&T Motors. Make sure you go to the English language page.
Its U.S. distributor, Hyosung Motors, is based in Norcross, Georgia. More information on Hyosung Motors can be found here.
