Maico on the Come-back in U.K.

Filed under: Uncategorized ? admin @ 5:16 am

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Maico, one of the most prestigious names in motocross history is back. The much revered Maico name which holds almost iconic status within the motocross world for the legendary 400, 440, and 490 open class bikes of the 70?s and early 80?s which set the benchmark by which all other brands were judged, is alive and kicking and preparing to do battle on U.K. soil once more.Maico was formed in the early 1930?s, but after the almost Dallas like family feud between brothers Wilhelm and Otto Maisch, which was ultimately responsible for its downfall, the original company was declared bankrupt on the 10th of May 1983.Now being hand made in its native Germany using high end products such as Reiger, H.G.S. and *********** the extensive range of two stroke Motocross Enduro and Supermoto bikes are now gracing our shores through Bournemouth based importers Maico U.K who have recently secured the sole import rights for the new bikes.
