Titan Phoenix Named Best of 1999 by Hot Bikes Magazine

7 November 1999

    PHOENIX -- Titan Motorcycle Co. of America announced on Friday that Hot Bike 
magazine has named Titan's new Phoenix(TM) model as one of the top five 
motorcycles for 1999.

    Hot Bike's December 1999 issue is quoted as saying, "The Phoenix has great
looks, strong performance and quality," adding, "The most surprising thing
about the Titan Phoenix is how much motorcycle you get for your money."

    Hot Bike based its selection on an approximate 30-day test, during which
the staff at the magazine evaluated performance, in traffic, on the freeway,
and through canyons and mountain roads.  Each named bike won its fair share of
stop-light races and performed notably in technical and expert  maneuvers.

    "We're pleased that our new Phoenix is receiving such rave reviews from
both the motorcycle press and the riding public at large," said Patrick Keery,
president.  "It's no small feat to stand out in a crowd among a group of
reviewers who have come to appreciate what makes a good bike an extraordinary
bike."  Keery indicated that the company plans to continue its ramp-up of
production capacity to meet anticipated Y2000 demand.
