It's hard to believe that such a big brand will go out just like that.
I'm sure there is always room for negotiation between NKB and whoever wants the name.

Just a head's up to the OP, should this be a ruse or joke there can be some real world consequences for posting such a thread.

Defamation and libel immediately come to mind.

So my fine colonial cousins and their fellow doubting thomases, one of two scenarios is true:
1) I made it all up just to boost my pre season order book and wind up the result of religious fanatics and the Irish inbreeding on that far flung continent.
Or
2) It’s true and they’ve had to rush out a dealer circular in the last 24 hours to head off a self created disaster.

Only time will tell.

The last couple of years, all North kites were coming in 2 tones of the same color. It seems that they were getting prepared for duotone.

But here it seems that someone believed an April fools day echo and is spreading it further. Yiuhu!!!!

Toby - Do you ever decide to take down a thread that could damage a company’s sales? If so, now might be a good time.
