Some of you may have already read the article in MiniMoto Magazine Called “ Catching Up with Dan Maker”. In this Article Mr. Maker states that he is working with Thumpstar Inc directly and is no longer working with the North American Distributor for Thumpstar.
Let’s clear the air – This statement is a complete fabrication. Mr. Maker has not been a part of the Thumpstar Group in the US, since he was asked to leave in May of 2006 and he has no affiliation whatsoever to Thumpstar in China.
The Thumpstar Brand in the USA, Canada and Mexico is owned and distributed by Blata USA / Omicron Motors. Blata USA and Omicron Motors have been committed since the release of the first Thumpstar bike into the US to make sure that the quality of the product is constantly being improved. They are working directly with Thumpstar China for new products to be released in 2007 along with the introduction of the New TDX Pro soon to come with Marzochhi Forks in the first quarter of 2007. In addition to that Thumsptar USA has come out with its New Dayton Head Bike, ridden by the members of the Thumsptar Team. This bike will be shown at the Dealer Expo 2007, booth 5900. And will be ridden at the Orleans Area on May 3& 4, 2007. For those of you interested in test ridding one during the Orleans event, just let us know. We will have bikes on hand.
We at Blata USA and Omicron Motors just wanted to clear the air for 2007 and wish you all a prosperous New Year.
Regards, Thumpstar USA
