A Letter from Frank White on the Future of ATK

Edited by Rusty Johnson
February 15, 2011

To the ATK Community:

There have been discussions about ATK getting out of the off-road market; the answer to these discussions is NO! For the time being ATK is not active in this market because it is down some 80+%.

We will continue to support our Dirt Bike Customers with parts and service as we have for years. Lee Smith in our Service Dept bleeds off-road.

We have entered the Street Bike business and have a five year relationship with a great manufacturer in Korea (S&T) who will make many of the parts we will utilize on street motorcycles. We will be selling our motorcycles in select *Harley-Davidson Dealerships across the country. We have several top level H-D retired VP Types engaged in our business who have a proven themselves as winners.

Once the Off-Road Market improves we will be back with new products. The Street Bike business will pay for the addiction of dirt bikes like it does with most brands. We have been toying with the E-Bike market for future Police Motorcycles as well.

There is a good chance we will make some 620-700 Intimidators this next year if the dollar strengthens against the Euro. Don't be surprised if you see some new models within a year. We are never content....

After 14 grueling races throughout the country, ATK the only American made Ready to Race ATV piloted by Ryan Costello from Iowa , finished on top of the podium beating all 48 other racers riding various Asian Brands. The consistency and reliability of the ATK finishing every race entered was one of the major contributing factors to winning the Championship.

To Frank and the whole crew

I would just like to thank the whole crew and your friends for turning a purchase of a cycle into a whole and complete adventure. You have earned a level of user loyalty for not just your product, but the whole program. I got more out of a few days than I could have ever received just shaking her out on a few weekends by myself in Dallas. The tech help was top notch, the riding was top level and the start of friendships priceless. I can not wait to get her to Dallas. I look forward to another trip to SLC for rewarding fun!
