Turkish Superstar Halil Ergun Launches Evader's New Line of 200 Series Electric Motorcycles at the Istanbul International Motorcycle Show

ISTANBUL, Turkey--March 25, 2004--Bellevue-Washington based Evader, Inc. (, the maker of electric high-performance vehicles powered by their leading-edge proprietary technology continues its tour of the world's leading motorcycle shows with its biggest display ever at the 2004 International Motorcycle Show in Istanbul, Turkey.

With the help of Turkish superstar, Halil Ergun, Evader is launching its new line of 200 series electric motorcycles. The EV200S along with seven other Evader models are on exhibit at Evader's biggest show to date. The show opened at noon Thursday at the Istanbul Exhibition and Convention Center and continues through Sunday March 28. The other seven motorcycles on display include the 100, 100S, the 100S camouflage military bike, the all-new Classic and the all-new 200 series.

"We started selling the new EV200S within two minutes of the show opening its doors," said Erdinc Kabranlar, the CEO of Megacar AG. "We have been overwhelmed in our booth. Istanbul is a city of over 15 million people and is plagued with congestion and pollution. The Evader product line will give people a opportunity to participate in reducing our pollution."

"The Turkish market is going to be big," said Rob Stoneham, Evader's Director International Distribution. "With a population of more than 70 million and gasoline priced at almost US$7.00 per gallon the Turkish people are looking for an affordable, quiet and environmentally friendly solution for their transportation needs. Evader is the only answer."

The show also marks the debut Evader's 200 series of Police styled electric motorcycles. Capable of speeds of up to 55 MPH, the first all electric Evader EV200S Police Cruiser, fully equipped with sirens and lights and built for the Istanbul "Trafik Polis" is appearing as Evader's first production police motorcycle, ready for active duty.

Evader has partnered with Megacar AG to distribute its products throughout Turkey, Eastern Europe and Northern Africa. Megacar and Evader have eight languages represented at the show in Istanbul.
