Two powersports companies will launch a small-displacement motorcycle that will be endorsed by NASCAR teams.
Tank Sports, a company that develops, engineers and markets Chinese-built product, and Moto Cycle Corp. will launch the Moto 50 NASCAR Signature Series in the first quarter of the new year.
The 50cc motorcycle will have DOT, EPA and CARB certification, the companies said in a press release.
NASCAR teams that have already signed up to endorse the bike include 2006 Nextel Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson as well as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and Michael Waltrip.
The small-displacement bike is part of a newly established relationship between Moto and Tank. “We strongly believe this is just the beginning of a long-term relationship with Moto with many more models to be released in 2007," Mike Turber, Tank’s national sales manager and marketing director, said in a prepared statement.
