Established in 1971, Hi-Torque Publications was built on the foundation of being an active marketing partner for Off-Road companies who are serious about reaching the dedicated end-users, the influencers, and the decision-makers. For over 40 years we continue to raise the bar by adhering to those same principles that have made our titles and our partners the Number #1 brands in the Industry. Never before has there been a more exciting time to choose Hi-Torque. Our industry-leading newsstand titles are available in over 30% more outlets than our nearest competitors. We continue to lead the way in digital magazine publishing, speeding the domestic and global delivery of our editorial message, while at the same time broadening the experience to our worldwide readership. In 2012 we reached double-digit circulation growth by partnering with Apple Newsstand to deliver the industry’s favorite titles to smart-phones and tablet readers worldwide. We have also just launched on Android-based tablets and additional mobile devices in fall 2012. Our editors don’t just “write” about these sports. They LIVE them. When it comes to testing products (from aftermarket parts, to apparel and gear, to motorcycles, ATVs and UTVs), we make our evaluations from the saddle, to give our readers “real world” information on the products they plan to purchase. We test more products more extensively than any other magazine in the field. Over our 40+ years, we have helped play a role in the development of products that our readers use every day. And when we write about the history of these sports, we write it from a first-person perspective, because we’ve been there, every step of the way. No other magazine in the industry can make this claim, and because of this fact, our readers trust us more than any other publication to help them make the right purchasing decisions. If you are searching for a media partner to brand your message through print, mobile apps, online, video, social or cooperative promotions, we have endless resources to take your brand to the next level. We truly look forward to working with all of our current clients in 2013, as well as forging new partnerships, building your brand and exceeding your expectations. Sincerely,

Robb A. Mesecher Advertising Director Hi-Torque Publications, Inc

Q: A:

Print is dying; what will you guys do?

Grow! We have been asked that question for years now, and never before has Hi-Torque had a better year of circulation growth than in 2012. While the outcome of print media will be debated on the Internet for decades to come, we are 100% positive—as long as there are trees, there will be magazines.

CONTENTS

The new media opportunities available today have delivered double-digit sales growth to our titles. Just as this letter was tapped out on an iPad, our Apple Newsstand digital subscription platform has grown our subscription base by over 30% in the first 9 months in 2012. Hi-Torque will surpass 1 MILLION app downloads in our first year with Apple Newsstand. There simply has never been a more exciting time to choose Hi-Torque as your media partner. Whether itʼs in print, online, video or social media, Hi-Torque is efficient in delivering your branding message. Just as your favorite couch or leather chair doesn’t really care how you get your information, honestly, neither do we. So as we grow these new digital platforms, what hasn’t changed is who we are: the most influential and trusted media partner in the Off-Road industry today.

Dirt Bike magazine is the premier publication for the dirt enthusiast. Because the magazine covers the gamut of the sport—from woods racing, motocross, closed-course off-road, and the blossoming dual-sport and adventure-bike world—our readers aren’t shoehorned into a track-only publication. For over 40 years, Dirt Bike magazine has offered high-end race tests, long-term evaluations, large sections of hop-ups and technical features, and stayed ahead of the trends to keep our readers informed. STILL the #1 newsstand-selling, off-road motorcycle magazine, and now with the power and immediate, single-click, worldwide reach of our NEW Mobile App version to market your company’s products to a fast-growing segment of off-road consumers, Dirt Bike offers you the best growth opportunities across all media platforms in the industry. If you have a product or service for motocross, off-road, enduro, desert, dual-sport, adventure or hare scrambles, Dirt Bike remains your number one and most cost-effective choice. www.hi-torque.com 7

WEBSITE ADVERTISING POSITIONS Now! The news and views of the sport have to be posted now. Right now. Better yet, they should’ve been posted five minutes ago.

Welcome to the Internet, where (at least for some people) no story can be posted quickly enough. By being completely immersed in the sports we cover, all four of Hi-Torque’s off-road magazines maintain a strong Internet presence with web-specific news updates and feature stories delivered to a global audience far beyond our already impressive print reach. Supplementing our “current content”, our website readers also get a veritable treasure trove of content that provides motorcycle, ATV, and UTV parts and accessory makers with additional reach to consumers. In addition to their respective websites, each magazine also maintains a strong social media presence, with frequent updates and contests designed to further engage our readers and build even deeper relationships with them. It’s all about staying connected, and from our magazines to all facets of the Internet, Hi-Torque editors provide the wide world of off-road enthusiasts with the content they want that bring them back, every day.
