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. Founded in 1994, Titan Motorcycle Co. of America is a premier designer, manufacturer and distributor of high-end, American-made, V-twin engine motorcycles marketed under various Titan trademarks.
