Bultaco is back!

That's not really Bultaco, or rather, they have no plans of doing anything as far as producing another bike etc. It's just a merch site. It's been around for a couple years now.

Didn't they already come back...and then rename themselves Sherco?

Nope, Sherco bought rights to use the name for some time, got established.then dropped the Bultaco name and went totally Sherco.

I think Sherco might be a combination of Sherpa and Bultaco .:freaky

Probably so, after all, they did use the Bultaco name to get started. It is possible that Hughes made them stop using the name in the U.S. Hughes owns the trademark on the name Bultaco. Perhaps he filed a claim against them. Within a year or so after coming to the country Sherco dropped the Bultaco name.

Kawasaki got stopped from using the name Zephyr on their U.S. models by Ford Motor Company because they own the trademarked name Zephyr in the U.S. Riders can't buy the Zephyr tank emblem stickers from Kawasaki because of that.

Disney Corp. stopped BSA from using the name "Thumper" years ago. I guess some folks couldn't tell the difference between a cartoon rabbit and a motorcycle :D

It would be cool to see a true spanish built taco back on the market again. It would be cool to see any Spanish brand bike back on the market...I know Montesa still makes trials bikes but they are a Honda division and not a true Montesa.

Ossa would be cool too. They are all likely to just have KTM motors like most European bike builders that really are just frame builders I.E. Beta, VOR, Bergs.....

Wait a moment, Ossa is back and they have their own motor, there is Sherco and Gas-Gas as Spanish brands with own engines too???


For Bultaco there are so many Bultaco's left take one and rebuild it like new and then you have a new Bul:

Stand corrected! VOR made their own engines, pretty cool too, gear driven cams etc.
I know I have one, the latest model 2004 450ENE. They went belly up in 2005.

Bultacos are cool too. I recall the Prime Minister of Australia had a new one in 1975. He used to it outrun the press when they asked 'interesting' questions.

Just like Ford taking on Ferrari about the use of F150. One is a pick up, the other is an F1 car...Bad blood never goes away.
