Heartland Honda spent last weekend in Indianapolis checking out what all of your favorite powersports parts companies have been up to and are ready to bring to you this year. Ready to check out all the cool new stuff? Here are some highlights...
In the rider safety market there is a new product available to help combat everyday riding on the roads or in the city. Viber Ride created an alert tactile device that reminds a rider his/her turn signal is on. Turn signal vibration technology is embedded into a rider’s handlebar that emits vibrations to notify the rider when the turn signal is left on. Options include silver, black and chrome end caps to match a bikes décor.
For dirtbikes, Matrix has several new products for the coming year. They introduced a wedge design for their bike stands so that new Honda motorcycles will sit level. There is also an oil drain pan, redesigned tie downs, and a gas tank holder.
In the sportbike category there was plenty to see, including the new Cortech Dryver tankbag line comes with a new innovative quick release gas cap ring mounting system. The new system provides an easy way to attach and remove the Cortech bags with ease and guards the finish of the bike. Cortech’s new Dryver tankbags are built with waterproof construction, come in a variety of sizes and options including various GPS mounts giving the sport rider choices based on their needs.
In the gear section we saw collaboration happening between lifestyle brands to create limited edition gear and apparel. MSR presented a new MSR DVS K-Dub 14 apparel line that celebrates Pro AMA motocross/supercross Honda rider Kevin Windham. The K-Dub line includes a DVS 14 T-shirt, hoodie, jersey shirt, Flexfit 210 fitted hat and an adjustable one size fits all hat. Two custom shoes are available from DVS, the Premier and Enduro models featuring the No. 14 on the rear of the shoe.
