About Maxcom Ltd.
Maxcom Ltd. is one of the largest bicycle manufacturers in Eastern Europe and is part of MAXEUROPE in Bulgaria. In 2001, their bikes were officially introduced in the EU and since then over 95% of our OEM products are sold to European customers.

About the PIERER Mobility Group
The PIERER Mobility Group is Europe's leading manufacturer of "powered two-wheelers" (PTW). With its motorcycle brands KTM, HUSQVARNA Motorcycles and GASGAS, it is one of the European technology and market leaders, especially for premium motorcycles. In addition to powered two-wheelers equipped with combustion engines or innovative electric drives, the product portfolio also includes e-bicycles. As a pioneer in electromobility for two-wheelers in the low-voltage range (48 volts) the group and its strategic partner Bajaj have the prerequisites to assume a leading global role. The acquisition of PEXCO's e-bicycle business was another important step in intensifying activities in the field of two-wheeled electromobility. E-bicycle activities will be promoted under the brands HUSQVARNA E-Bicycles, R Raymon and GASGAS E-Bicycles in order to participate in the attractive market growth of the e-bicycle segment and to become a major international player. Thanks to our innovative strength, we see ourselves as the technology leader in the two-wheeler sector in Europe.
