Takeovers in motorcycle manufacturing happen all the time. If you're an old git like me you may remember back in 1969 Harley-Davidson themselves were at an all time low and were taken over by AMF, American Machine & Foundry. The bikes were rebadged as AMF Harley-Davidson but they still were regarded as rubbish, and remained so until a group of private investors bought Harley-Davidson back in 1981 built it up into the worldwide brand it is today.
