ACEWELL UK The finishing touch

ACEWELL UK

A

cewell International, along with its sister company Quadtech, is one of the world’s largest producers of speedometers for bicycle, motorcycle and E-bikes. Many well-known Japanese, American and UK branded speedometers are produced by the companies, but the Acewell brand was unknown in the UK until 2006.

Digi-dock motorcycle smartphone mounts

20

At Motorcycle Expo 2009 Acewell partnered with Quadtech (www. quadtech.co.uk) to supply the Acewell-branded product range to the UK. Over the past nine years the product offering has increased considerably, and there are now speedometer models in the range that fit any road motorcycle, dirt bike, quad or kit car. With retail prices from £80 to £260, there is a product for every price point. The new chromed and blackanodised, aluminium-cased round speedometers are the latest offering, and becoming very popular, especially for classic BMW boxers and cafe-racer conversions. Unique to Acewell is its array of speedo cable replacements – the cables look mechanical but are electronic. Well-known brands which use Acewell speedometers include CCM, Ural, Rewaco, TGB, Gas Gas, Yamaha, Jawa and MAC. Quadtech, established back in 2002 as an ATV dealership, put the first ever quad through the MSVA test in 2003 and was involved in the consultation process during the test design. More recently Quadtech worked with its dealer network to thwart the DoT’s plans to stop

WWW.ACEWELL.CO.UK

farmers having their ‘off-road’ quads modified for road use. The successful campaign has allowed the hundreds of quad dealers in the UK to continue their business. Plug-andplay road lighting kits are available for almost all current Sport Quads, ATVs and UTVs. Other products and brands are distributed in the UK. Included in the range is a twin-head, hardwired HD camera system which uses bullet cameras and automatically records whenever the bike is started. The Aloha Bluetooth headsets from Bikecomm pair with GPS, phone and up to four other headsets and have a range up to a mile.

In late 2017 the Digi-dock (www.digidock. co.uk) range of motorcycle smartphone mounts were introduced to the UK. Unique to Digi-dock is a waterproof pouch that fits on to the mount. Ace 2000 Series The pouch has a USB and firewire power supply built in. The 2018 range of accessories for the Honda Africa Twin (www.africatwin.co.uk) has been developed and is available to any dealer who has an account with AcewellQuadtech. The range includes plug-and-play LED driving lights with custom mount, USB sockets, DIN sockets, frame-guards and

an ever growing selection of carbon-fibre parts. Current in development is a plug-andplay electronic speedometer for the Royal Enfield 500, and a range of heated grips for motorcycles and ATVs. Always on the lookout for new dealers in both the motorcycle and ATV markets, Acewell-Quadtech has no minimum order requirements and is able to offer technical support over the phone and by email. n

Ultimate corrosion protection

„ Kills existing corrosion and prevents new „ Approved for use on electrics and engines

A

CF-50 and Corrosion Block were developed by Lear Chemical Research, a Canadian company that has been successfully developing and compounding anti-corrosion lubricants and greases since 1979.

There are other products claiming superiority over ACF-50, especially in “lab tests”, but independent comments confirm they don’t reflect this in realworld use. Almost every major motorcycle manufacturer unofficially recommends ACF-50 if a dealer encounters corrosion Issues and several manufacturers, importers and distributors have their entire press fleets protected with the product. Apart from aviation and motorcycle, ACF-50 is also active in other markets including industrial, automotive, marine and cycle. We offer pricing to suit all requirements – from a dealership wanting a single box to full line distributors. We are also the sole European importers for Clear View polish, which many of you will know as a sensibly priced alternative Plexus. Ask for a FREE sample can when you order some ACF-50. n

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT THE PRODUCTS:

y “A miracle in a can” y “At last – a product that exceeds expectations” y “If it’s good enough to protect planes on aircraft carriers – it’s good enough for me” y “Should probably come with every new bike” y “Definitely not your typical maintenance spray” y “After 35 years riding, something that works” WWW.ACF-50.EU

GIVI UK

W

ith 40 years’ experience in the industry, the GIVI name has become synonymous with high quality, value-for-money motorcycle luggage and accessories. The aim from the beginning was to blend Italian design with strong technical know-how and an in-depth knowledge of motorcyclists’ needs. The company still works by these values today, undergoing constant research to develop new materials and technologies that result in the best quality end product.

34

Luggage and accessories GIVI’s product range has grown to include hard and soft cases, bags and rucksacks, windscreens and small accessories – including a vast range of model-specific products. GIVI has pioneered and patented some of the most innovative luggage solutions available on the market today. Some of the luggage news for this season include the new GRAVEL-T GRT709 Canyon Bags: a range of bags featuring low volume loads, super lightweight materials, high resistance and 100% impermeability, designed for “off-road” travel on two-wheels. Also there are new new Trekker DOLOMITI top and side cases in a “Black Line” finish with new refined inner bags enabling the contents to be carried by hand. Adding to the new catalogue entries is the T516: a universal handlebar bag perfect for storing small objects, including the inseparable mobile phone.

WWW.GIVI.CO.UK

Helmets Full-face, modular, jet, demi-jet, even the Junior range for ‘young passengers’ has been updated. There are many models, each available in different colours and graphics. For 2018 we have more than 100 different options you can wear on your head. Jets and demi-jets dominate the scene, but the range is nicely completed by full-face and modular helmets. Among the new additions to the family we can find the new 20.9 Fiber-J jet helmet and 12.3 Stratos demi-jet, a ladies’ version of the 50.4 Sniper full-face and the 50.5 Tridion, and new colours for the X.21 Challenger flip-up.

M MOTODIRECT

otoDirect Digital is a new, exciting division within MotoDirect. Created to provide motorcycle industry focused digital services to target end user engagement – MotoDirect Digital.

How many times have you spoken to an advertising agency and realised they don’t speak our language? MotoDirect Digital understands the motorcycle industry, having manufactured and distributed products throughout the world for over 30 years. We hold a mass of motorcycle data and using GDPR-friendly (General Data Protection Regulation) systems we are able to offer this to the motorcycle industry. Have you been looking for an alternative advertising strategy not only to boost your online sales but to increase footfall into your store? Not only seeing how many people your adverts have interacted with but where they have and how. From small dealerships to large manufactures we can tailor-make an advertising campaign to suit your needs and budget and target your ideal customers. MotoDirect Digital is using a programmatic platform to reach the most relevant audiences by tapping into key markets as part of its clients’ UK and worldwide expansion plans. This unique technology enables

WWW.MOTO-DIRECT.COM

the manufacturer and distributor to apply geo-contextual targeting directly from the platform to drive results. The system can find new customers, retarget dealership and manufacturer websites or whitelist relevant websites for campaigns. Simply put, we can serve those relevant advertisements that you question “How did they know” across


e: digitalsales@moto-direct.com w: www.moto-direct.com

the internet that follow you around. Digital director Chris Day comments: “MotoDirect Digital has given us the ability to retake control of our own and our clients’ media budgets. Unlike before, we now have total access into where our programmatic-media spend actually goes. We offer 100% transparency to show how your campaign performs, looking at websites where the ads performed best, which creative sizes worked well and even which device type consumers were using when seeing your ads. As well as this we monitor and recommend so we can fully optimise your campaign to perform to its absolute best to give you the highest quality results possible. Debbie Wiggins, head of marketing at Ducati UK, remarks: “We have been using programmatic advertising for some time with various agencies. MotoDirect gave us a different perspective on how programmatic media buying should work by providing us with total transparency and offering a product that delivers value for money and great results.”

Programmatic is here to stay, making up 79% of all UK digital display ad spend which accounted for £3.39 billion last year according to eMarketer Gary Hartshorne, senior product manager for northern Europe at Bridgestone, has this to say: “In an ever-changing media world it’s sometimes difficult to judge what printed advertising does for you, or indeed how many people you reach, so we took a total change of direction for our sales campaigns and took the plunge into programmatic advertising. The analytics show you everything you need to know so you can measure your spend versus interaction. Our recent promotional offers campaign sold out in weeks, so for us it is a huge success.” MotoDirect continues to supply the traditional sales aids of POS material, consumer marketing, and product training. Its sponsorship programme based on its prestigious brands such as RST, Arai, AGV, Motul and Wolf to name but a few, centres on the real roads racing arena of the Isle Of Man TT, Classic TT and North West 200 among other events. n

system – this system allows for an incredible amount of adjustment and each part of the mount can be swapped and changed for other components, making the system completely customisable. Dealerships are very important to us; we value our relationships and the services we can offer to enthusiasts who truly understand the importance of RAM mounts within the motorcycle industry. This industry is unique. We work in other automotive sectors but mounts for motorcycles are different. They demand more diverse and innovative design and a higher degree of resilience to safeguard bikers’ precious mobile electronics. Ram Mounts always achieve these objectives.

For example our new Stem-Mount HD; a universal toolless mounting base that attaches inside the central fork stem for bikes that lack traditional handlebar space on which to mount devices. This product plus a vast number of other solutions for all kinds of bikes makes RAM a very potent force in mounting solutions. RAM products are distributed solely through TranAm in the UK but everything you need to know about our products can be found either online, or by contacting via phone or email. n

COTT Sports has 60 years of developing products from ski poles to bikes and in 1970 SCOTT entered the motocross goggle market with the first ever motocrossspecific goggle and later introduced motocross boots, grips and accessories. SCOTT goggles have always been a quality product on the market. Capitalising on more than 40 years of experience, SCOTT continues to develop its goggles, which excel in terms of field of vision, comfort and lens retention. Today SCOTT Sports has a full head-totoe range of products not just specific to motocross, but also products which have been designed for enduro as well as on-road and adventure. In 2018 the exciting decision was made for SCOTT Sports motocross, enduro, onroad and adventure products to be managed through the UK subsidiary which is based in Northumberland. SCOTT Sports UK is actively seeking sales partners to take the SCOTT Moto division to the next level which will complement the company’s other successful product groups – Scott Bike, Scott Winter and Scott Running. The open collaborative attitude that is a driving force behind SCOTT Sports internally is also constant in the way we work with our partners around the world. Over the years we have built a network of more than 30,000

retailers. We rely on good relationships with our partners to create strong bonds with consumers and perpetuate the innovation that SCOTT Sports embodies. SCOTT continues to push the limits of innovation, technology and design and consequently is also pushing the limits of safety. Especially in sports like motocross, safety has a very high priority. It is not only the human power but also the engine power beneath the rider that asks for this extra level of safety. We are proud that our wide protection expertise, gained from our different sport involvements, allows us to push safety beyond standards. When riders push themselves to the limit SCOTT will stand by you and help you surpass what even you believed was impossible. We are SCOTT Sports – it’s more than just the name on our products. It’s important for us to always remember that it stands for something bigger than a company or brand. From the guts, freedom and drive that define our people, to the mentality with which we approach designing products, to the attitude of the athletes who conquer the world of sport – SCOTT Sports is more than a brand name, it’s a source of personal pride. n

ast year LS2 produced three million helmets and aims to stay ahead in 2018 with a relentless programme of innovation, with fresh designs from its European HQ in Barcelona. New for 2018, the Vortex takes LS2’s range of flip-front helmets to the next level, combining an ultra-light carbon fibre shell with aggressive sport styling and Bluetooth compatibility. Produced using multiple layers of exclusive wide-weave carbon fibre – the material used in the aeronautical industry, Formula 1 and MotoGP – it weighs only 1300g, which is exceptionally light for a flip-front helmet. Available in XS-XXL, there are three external shell sizes, for a close, comfortable fit, and the Pinlock anti-fog insert and drop-down sun shield add to the quality specification and feel. However, the most impressive aspect of the Vortex is the price – just £299.99 SRP. And for riders who want to stay connected, the Vortex is available ready-fitted with with the LINKIN Riderpal 3 Bluetooth communication system for £399.99 SRP. Also LRP 3 Bluetooth ready, for wireless connectivity on the move, is LS2’s modular Valiant, with its 180-degree, swing-around chin bar. Doubly certified as both a full-face and an open-face helmet, so it’s legal to ride in open-face mode, the Valiant is now available in four eye-catching graphics, including retro-styled white/black/red, contemporary black/orange/chrome and matt black/H-V yellow. Pinlock ready, with

drop-down sun shield and Dynamic Flow-through ventilation, the new Valiant graphics retail at just £249.99. There are also new full-face and open-face models, like the openface Spitfire, as well as refreshed graphics throughout the range, including the popular Pioneer adventure-sport helmet. Helping to raise the profile of LS2 among British riders are John McPhee, competing in MOTO3, and Martin Jessopp, road racing specialist and BSB contender. Follow their progress on Facebook @ ls2helmetsukofficial. Dealers joining the LS2 family are supported by a national sales team, backed up by the customer service team at their UK distribution hub, with access to in-store displays to suit showrooms of all shapes and sizes. n
