DAVIDA: New from the specialist ISO 9001 accredited British helmet manufacturer, the updated road-legal Speedster v3 open-face helmet features dual North American and European approvals (ECER22-05 and DOT FMVSS # 2018), an advanced low-profile GRP composite shell shape in three sizes, polystyrene shock absorption liner, and removable and replaceable full leather interior. The Speedster has its origins in highly evocative classic 1970s styling with a 26-year heritage as one of the most popular open-face helmets on the international custom and Cafe Racer style market;

VEE RUBBER: Big in the custom scene in Europe as well as the United States, with “new gen” design technology, Vee Rubber remains the “go-to” for white walls and fat rear tires;


DP BRAKES: The originator of sintered brake pad technology, the UK manufacturer has top-end performance applications for most Evo and late-model Harleys and a range of stainless steel rotors and durable, high performance friction plates that are designed for the severe duty that Big Twin and XL drivetrains apply to their clutches;


RIZOMA: The Italian parts, accessory and make-over kit specialist is best known for their ‘metric’ product line, but recently stepped-up their Harley offer with new Sportster and Night Rod parts designs to add to their universal fit cruiser mirror, forward control, grips, pegs and lever options;


K&N ENGINEERING: Recent new products from the Riverside, California based cotton gauze performance air filter specialist include simple bolt-on cast aluminum Aircharger intake system kits for all 2008-2016 Touring models and 2001-2015 Dynas and Softails. Said to add up to 6hp, both kits include a cast aluminum intake tube and come in a textured black finish with a raised, brushed aluminum K&N logo. They feature an oversized, oiled cotton, clamp-on air filter that feeds air directly into a wide air tube with an integrated velocity stack. An integrated breather system ensures these kits are a direct replacement for the stock intake. Dyno tests have shown an estimated 6 hp and 6.5 lb-ft of torque gain on a 2016 H-D Street Glide, and an estimated 5 horsepower and 8 lb-ft of torque on a 2016 Harley Switchback;


WUNDERKIND: Launched two years ago, the Wunderkind program is a new line of custom parts designed and manufactured in Germany by noted sportsbike parts maker ABM. Products include performance custom air cleaners with washable K&N air filters; forward controls, brake discs, callipers and levers; fork stabilizers and triple clamps; pegs and grips, covers and adjustable ‘Multi-Clip’ clip-on handlebars, all in a choice of finishes with ABE certification where required – the highest level of design and materials quality approval available in the tough regulatory environment of the German market;
