New limited edition Hummer H2 includes mountain bike
Detroit, Michigan – For the 2004 model year, Hummer is offering a limited edition “Victory Red” H2 model which includes a foldable mountain bike. The 27-speed Hummer mountain bike includes suspension fork, lightweight aircraft grade aluminum construction and a patented military paratrooper folding frame which allows for easy storage in the back of the vehicle.
“Like our trucks, the Hummer mountain bike is intended for serious riding on rugged terrain. The original version was designed to be thrown in the back of a Humvee or strapped to a paratrooper,” said Michael C. DiGiovanni, Hummer general manager.
The limited edition includes all the standard features of the H2 Lux Series but with a special exterior paint and an up-level chrome package, which includes the fuel filler door, hood latches and hood grabs. Also included are chrome tubular assist steps, chrome tubular tail lamp protection and chrome wheels. The special edition package also features a sunroof and an upgrade to OnStar’s “Directions and Connections” plan.
Off-road enthusiasts will like the black wrap-around brush guard, first-aid and tool kits, and the air suspension package with self-leveling rear air-spring system and on-board compressor.
Fifteen hundred Victory Red models will be built this year and will appear in dealerships beginning in February.
