AAC grabs Vee Two

CAR parts manufacturer Australian Automotive Components has bought motorcycle maker Vee Two.

The deal brings together the company that makes the Sprintex supercharger with a company that is selling Ducati parts to the Italians.

AAC managing director Tony Hamilton said the purchase doubled his company’s size.

Vee Two founder Brook Henry will remain with the business.

Besides the Vee Two purchase, AAC has been in the process of preparing its supercharged Mitsubishi Magna all-wheel drive for the Melbourne Motor Show in March.

Mr Hamilton said along with the Magna, which the company was hoping would lead to a deal with Mitsubishi, the company would debut a supercharged Harley Davidson motorcycle at the motorshow.

“It will be a Vee Two Sprintex Harley Davidson. I don’t believe there is another supercharged V Rod [Harley Davidson] anywhere else,” he said.

Vee Two manufactures parts for all Ducati models. It also makes its own line of motor-cycles. Ducati only makes parts for its bikes that are up to 10 years old.
