CHICAGO, Ill. — Lock manufacturer ABUS announced that it is now distributing its products to dealers through Tucker Rocky and Biker's Choice.
The brand had previously been distributed through Parts Unlimited, according to company spokesperson Rob Reedy. ABUS does not sell dealer-direct, he said.
“Aligning with Tucker Rocky strengthens ABUS’ growing market dominance in the motorcycle category,” said Fritz Bohl, ABUS U.S. director. “We are convinced that Tucker Rocky will be focused on our brand in order for it to continue to be successful in this market.”
Reedy said Tucker Rocky will distribute the full line of ABUS products, including the Granit Detecto X-Plus 8077 Disc Alarm Lock (see image), introduced in mid-2012 but which added availability in titanium and yellow colors this year.
