Viper Motorcycle Company to Introduce Donnie Smith Designed Chopper at the Donnie Smith Invitational Show

MINNEAPOLIS, March 17 -- Viper Motorcycle Company , a subsidiary of Viper Powersports Inc., will unveil its new Donnie Smith designed Viper Dragon Chopper at the Donnie Smith Invitational Bike Show at Excel Center in St. Paul, MN, March 19-20th.

The Viper Dragon shares many of the proprietary features of the Viper Diablo, including a rubber mounted proprietary Viper billet engine, oil-in- the-frame Viper chassis, patented Viper Hyper-Drive system, right-hand drive, adjustable Viper air ride suspension and styling from Hall of Fame master builder Donnie Smith.

"Donnie Smith's design and attention to detail is outstanding," said Terry Nesbitt, President of Viper Motorcycle. "The Dragon, like our Diablo, is an engineered product with a unique style and an OEM identity. This new Viper model has the style and appeal of a chopper combined with Viper's proprietary and distinctive features that include a fat rear tire, right-hand drive, rubber mount engine, 38 degree rake and the VHD patented drive system. Together, our customers will be able to ride an OEM Chopper with its own flavor and excellent handling characteristics. Overall interest in the Diablo has been incredible; we anticipate initial demand of the Dragon also will greatly exceed the supply."

"Viper's progress has been remarkable, and I've been truly impressed with the design innovations and features of Viper's bikes," Smith said. "I'm especially impressed with Viper's VHD drive system. I think the project turned out extremely well and I am proud to have my signature on the Viper's new Dragon choppers."
