AUBURN, Ala., July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (OTCQB: VPWI) Viper Motorcycle Company, a wholly owned division of Viper Powersports, announced today that it is partnering with Gruene Harley Davidson and Javelina Harley-Davidson on four upcoming dealer and charity events.
Viper Motorcycle Company VP of Marketing and Racing Operations Colbert Seagraves stated, "The Gottsacker family has been extremely supportive of the Viper Motorcycle Company. When Hal and Rugger Gottsacker asked Viper to be a part of their upcoming events, we were only too happy to participate." Viper will have their motorcycles at the dealer's Customer Appreciation Day on August 11th. On August 28th, Viper will sponsor a hole and provide a Diamondback for a hole in one prize at the "For the Love of Kids and Harley's" charity golf tournament. Then on September 18th, Viper will again be present at the "18th Annual for the Love of Kids and Harley's Charity Gala." Additionally, a Viper only event will take place on the River-Walk in downtown San Antonio with details to be released in mid-August. Each of these events will showcase Viper's "Black Diamond Edition" Diamondback. This special edition motorcycle was designed and developed for the Mecum 25th Anniversary Auction in Indianapolis in May, where NHRA Top Fuel driver, Brandon Bernstein placed the winning bid of $55,000.00. Because of the overwhelming response from this event Viper is currently building a limited edition run of 25 numbered and badged "Black Diamonds". Ownership of a "Black Diamond" will entitle you to membership into a very exclusive club of motorcycle enthusiasts who prefer high performance, innovative styling, and a distinctive brand of motorcycle.
Rugger Gottsacker co-owner of Gruene Harley Davidson & Javelina Harley Davidson had this to say: "My father Hal attended the Indy Mecum auction and was blown away by the looks & styling of this bike. We wanted to be the first Viper dealers in the country to have one for sale and to promote this awesome motorcycle in conjunction with our upcoming dealership & charity events. We think the "Black Diamond Edition" is a winner and it is going to go fast."
John Silseth, CEO of Viper Powersports stated, "We love the support our Texas dealers are providing Viper as the beta sites in preparation for our National roll-out. Uncle Hal and Rugger are committed to promoting the Viper Diamondback as a production motorcycle that is second to none in styling, performance, power, & reliability."
