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.
