Last week the motorcycle industry converged on the sprawling floor of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, for the 2014 AIMExpo. In just two years the show has become the premier motorcycle trade show in the United States, with nearly every manufacturer of on-and off-road parts having a presence at the four day event. We were in attendance on Thursday and Friday, which gave us just enough time to check out the latest goods before catching a flight to Las Vegas for the Monster Energy Cup. With cameras in hand, we hit a number of booths and had a look at the parts and products which will fill catalogs and dealership floors very soon.
One huge perk of the AIMExpo is that Saturday and Sunday are open to the public. If you need a reason to hit central Florida next fall, the 2015 AIMExpo is set to be held from October 15th-18th.
2014 AIMExpo | TORC 1 Racing
With a wide array of accessories, complete with pegs, levers and grips, the crew at TORC 1 Racing have carved a place in the industry in just a short time. Ryan Pursley gave us a quick glimpse at their products, including the new Voltage pegs and a shift lever, which are now available.
2014 AIMExpo | Nihilo Concepts
Nihilo Concepts entered the market with a wide variety of parts for the KTM line of bikes, and their Florida production facility has cranked out everything from aluminum accessories to full-on replacement parts. With the Austrian bikes covered, they are now set to branch out into the Japanese market with parts for Kawasaki and Honda.
2014 AIMExpo | Hammerhead Designs
Until Hammerhead Designs took a look a shifters and brake levers, there was little room for adjustment in this key area of control. With replaceable tips of varied length, a rider can now perfect the fit of a lever to their foot size. These are just two of the parts in the Hammerhead Designs catalog, which are CNC made and available for all six of the major OEMs.
