AUBURN, Ala., Aug. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- (OTCQB: VPWI) Viper Motorcycle Company, wholly owned division of Viper Powersports, Inc. announced today that it has signed Absolute Investments as its initial 2012 Platinum Overseas Distributor for the Middle East and India.
Colbert Seagraves, Viper Motorcycle Company's Vice President of Marketing and Racing Operations stated, "With offices in Dubai, UAE; Riyadh, KSA; Kuwait City, Kuwait; Tel Aviv, Israel; Rome, Italy; Moscow, Russia; and India, Absolute Investments will be a key player for our marketing efforts abroad. As we continue to move forward expanding our dealer network, our commitment to excellence is represented by our choice of Platinum Overseas Distributors."
Don Hoffman, CEO of Absolute Investments had this to say about the Viper Diamondback™: "Before we represent any product, we purchase a unit and ride it like we stole it." In regards to the Diamondback™ ,"This bike demanded respect from the moment the container was opened, but riding it made you a believer. It's like meeting your mate for the first time; you know this is the real deal. Since I personally own two Dodge Vipers, an '08 convertible and a 2010 ACR Laguna Vista, after reading an article on the Viper Diamondback, I had to see for myself. I made the phone call and ordered a Diamondback. It is as fast or faster then my ACR, and belongs with my family of Vipers. I would say that a definition of all American Family, would also include a F16 Viper from the Viper Squadron, but for now it could not be better - two Dodge Vipers and one Viper Diamondback Motorcycle."
John Silseth, CEO of Viper Powersports stated, "The Viper Diamondback is in a league of its own and we are setting up a worldwide distribution network to match. We are currently transforming our distribution network and are targeting demographically key dealers and distributors making Viper a truly worldwide brand."
