Spanish manufacturer Rieju has signed a distribution agreement with EP Barrus. Barrus will become the sole UK and Republic of Ireland distributor for the Rieju range of motorcycles, mopeds and off-road mini-bikes with effect from October 1st 2004.

The model range includes bikes and mopeds from 50cc to 125cc, including the top-selling RS2 sports moped.

Rieju is due to launch a new 125cc, Yamaha-powered motorcycle based on the RS2 later this month at the INTERMOT show in Munich, Germany. The machine will also be on display at the International Motorcycle & Scooter Show at the NEC in Birmingham, in November.

Barrus will distribute Rieju products through the existing Rieju dealer network. Barrus also distributes and supports the Moto-roma, Malaguti and Motorhispania brands.
