HOLLAND REVOLUTION SPREADS TO AMERICA

Heerenveen, Holland.

Home of BATAVUS INTER- CYCLE, a member of the strong Laura Industrial Group.

Here, thousands of miles from America, 700 dedicated craftsmen assemble 70,000 BATAVUS MoPeds and 250,000 bicycles a year.

Erected in 1904, this impressive structure covers over 350,000 square feet and houses the largest, most modern MoPed / bicycle manufacturer in Holland. It's appropriate that this innnovative two-wheeler is a product of the Netherlands. Cycling been a popular tradition here.

The motorized bicycle from Holland has arrived on the American transportation, scene. Fuel is increasingly scarce, increasingly expensive.

So the 150 miles per gallon economy of the BATAVUS MoPed has found instant acceptance in America, as an economical machine that's also fun to ride. To serve this booming American market, BATAVUS USA is headquartered in Atlanta, with regional warehouses across the country creating a strong international reach for stateside customers.
