rewards for motocross and off-road racers in the US and Canada. We're excited
to get this program started on January 1, 2015, and looking forward to building
a strong community of Husky racers in North America."

new structure and model lineup we feel confident that we will quickly become a
prominent competitor in these racing segments. We have the most premium bikes
available today and are excited to get back into high-level racing. We are
committed to our engagement in factory racing with AMA Supercross and an
expanded off-road effort."
