That's too bad, I never saw one but they were supposedly half way decent bikes. Maybe Tata can take them over too, he seems to be the only one buying these days.....

Sad, indeed. Looks like another motorcycle manufacturer has gone the way of the Buell.

From a letter to the Editor of Rider magazine:

Maybe they're a subsidiary of Motoczysz..

The translation is a riot:

The judge decided the wind and trust the brand to the care of auctioneers


If no buyers party does appeal the decision by February 22, after fifteen years of a life too chaotic Voxan disappear!

I'm afraid we'll see more of this. I'm not sure that Suzuki will survive the economic downturn. Not importing any 2010's into America is a hugh gamble that may come back to haunt them.
