In 1994, Bernard Li acquired the rights to the Vincent trademark, and in 1996 formed Vincent Motors, USA. Vincent Motors, USA, made 5 prototype motorcycles in 2002. The engine used in these motorcycles has since gone out of production and Mr. Li has since died. It is therefore not likely that series production will begin.
