S&S Cycle

Paul Skarie Named S&S Cycle's New President & CEO

Following the departure of Paul Langley in March this year, Viola, Wisconsin based S&S Cycle has recruited former Harley man Paul Skarie as its new company President & CEO.
"Paul comes to S&S after a decade and a half stint at Harley-Davidson and brings with him an intimate understanding of the powersports space, both US and international," said Chairman of the Board Mark Platt.

"After an exhaustive and thorough search for a candidate that we felt could help write the next chapter of the S&S story, both the shareholders and board of directors agreed, Paul had the right stuff. His involvement in powersports, combined with a broad spectrum of experience, has forged a seasoned leader with the vision and demonstrated ability to drive S&S towards a prosperous future."
Skarie said: "I've long been a fan of S&S, admiring their ability to continually innovate in both the performance and racing markets, and I am both honored and excited to help lead this premier brand into the future."


In other news, S&S has confirmed its long expected entry into the UTV/SxS market with a "state of the art exhaust for popular SxS models to begin a new era of performance parts for the UTV space," said VP Sales Paul Devine - another H-D alumnus.
The new Power Tune XTO exhaust will be available in both a race as well as an industry first EPA legal version that will allow a dealer to bolt the exhaust onto a vehicle on the showroom floor," states Off-road Product Line Manager Brad Seavers.
"This more durable, lighter and tunable exhaust makes for a solid upgrade for the RZR, RZR XP Pro and Turbo as well as Honda Talon and, coming soon, Can-Am X3 and Kawasaki KRX models.

"Incorporating a highly engineered muffler body and dual outlet design, the systems house a spark arrestor in a 100% stainless steel muffler. Naturally we bring our own S&S style to the SxS market and incorporate adjustable inserts that let the user optimize their system for both sound and performance.
"The proven baffle inserts are easily removed or replaced by pulling the end cap, and we've also shared the availability of a complete tuning kit."
