Yoshimura Harley Exhausts now Available through HardDrive

Owned since the start of the year by Arrowhead Engineered Products (AEP), Boise, Idaho based Western Power Sports (WPS) has announced an exclusive agreement to become the sole distributor of Yoshimura products in the United States.
WPS will take over distribution of the product made in California by Yoshimura R&D of America, Inc. from Tucker Powersports and the deal is thought to be a strategic alignment with Bihr distribution in Europe. Bihr is a big player for Yoshimura in Europe and, having themselves been acquired by WPS parent AEP in the summer, the premium aftermarket exhaust system manufacturer has made a huge commit to the two 'sister' distributors.

Yoshimura 'Street Series' RS-12 ADV slip-on in titanium for the Harley Pan America weighs in 6 lbs lighter than the stock muffler with hp up by +1.4% and maximum torque increased by +2.5%.

Steve Lester, President of WPS, said: "The agreement expands on a collaboration that began in 2017 and underscores the companies' commitment to uncompromising quality and service standards. WPS dealers in the United States will gain exclusive, first-to-market access to Yoshimura's exceptional line of high-performance mufflers and exhaust systems and accessories for street and off-road motorcycles, as well as select ATVs and UTVs."
Yoshimura's genuinely race-bred 'Signature Series' exhaust systems cover the entire powersports spectrum, with additional 'Race Series' systems designed for closed course competition. Noted for their top-end design, materials, engineering, craftsmanship and performance, Yoshimura also offers exhausts for select H-D applications that will now be available through HardDrive.

Yoshimura R&D of America company president Yusaku Yoshimura said: "We are excited to announce that WPS is now the exclusive U.S. distributor for Yoshimura products. We trust in the WPS team's invaluable industry experience, extensive resources, and most importantly, their passion for powersports."
Founded in 1960 as a Polaris snowmobile distributor, WPS claims to currently be the fastest growing nationwide delivery system of powersports industry products and delivers through its regional warehouse network with locations in Idaho, California, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Texas.
