There have been numerous attempts to revive the famous Bultaco name. The latest seems to be gaining momentum with the debut of new electric concepts, both for motorcycle and bicycle. Now comes word that the new company has at last gained the rights to the US market. The use of the Bultaco name here in the US and the website, Bultaco.com, have long been the property of American Hugh Weaver. Will we see a new Bultaco on our home dirt somewhere in the future? Let’s hope so.
The new Bultaco continues in its process of returning to motorcycle market after years of lethargy. For this reason it has just be done with the ownership of the mark for the North American market, with what the company already has the property of the Bultaco brand at the global level and also retrieves domain bultaco.com. Ownership of the mark Bultaco in United States was to stop, in the mid-seventies, at the hands of an American industrial, Hugh D. Weaver. This was the historical distributor of the Spanish brand in those moments of maximum expansion of Bultaco to international level. Since then, the passionate of the brand of motorcycles has maintained their rights. With this operation, Bultaco completed its title at the global level, and therefore also be marketed in the United States all the range of their products, both the motorcycles that will occur in this new stage as the rest of the products that will be available in its catalog. The North American market has been key in the history of Bultaco, where it was allocating 50% of the total production of the mark. It had even been to produce specific products for this market, as the mythical Bultaco “Astro”, the Bultaco “The Bandit” and its later version “The Montadero”.
