Drag Specialties & Parts Unlimited

Drag Specialties & Parts Unlimited Showcase 2017 Part 2

TecMate: CEO Martin Human, right, sells OptiMate and Drag Specialties dual branded OptiMate battery chargers, diagnostics and accessories through the Parts Unlimited/Drag Specialties sales teams. The first specialist to bring “Smart” technology to motorcycle battery maintenance products, the top selling OptiMate-4 got a V.3 upgrade for 2017. First introduced in 2008, the latest iteration combines all the features and advantages that have made the “4” a top-seller with more efficient power circuitry (California approved) that now delivers 1 Amp of charge current, controller software refinements to further speed charging and visual LED indicators on the charger helping to keep the user informed of charge progress. Two models of the Version 3 are available - the standard V3 OptiMate 4 and a dedicated BMW CAN bus edition;

Vance & Hines: With the dust well and truly settled following the merger between Tucker Rocky and owner MAG, Vance & Hines remain a major player in Drag Specialties exhaust portfolio.
