FRISCO, Texas - Küryakyn was at the Tucker Rocky/Biker's Choice Brand Expo this weekend talking to dealers and distributor reps about the previously announced expansion of the company's product line, rally participation schedule and marketing initiatives.

The company announced on July 25 that Pete Amenda (pictured), most recently vice president of marketing at S&S Cycle, was signing on at Kuryakyn, a MAG company, as vice president of product development. MAG in June finalized its merger with Tucker Rocky/LDI.

“For a product-driven company like Küryakyn, bringing Pete in with his skillset, background and personality, we will see a significant impact in the growth and culture of our company on multiple levels,” said president Holger Mohr. 

Amenda’s career has included roles in retail, distribution and manufacturing at the OEM and aftermarket levels, including at Harley-Davidson, Screamin' Eagle and Custom Chrome.

“Küryakyn believes motorcycles aren’t simply a means of transportation, but rather a representation of a person’s very identity,” says Amenda. “I certainly agree with this philosophy and really look forward to working with the creative minds on this team to help accelerate Küryakyn’s continued growth for the next 25 years.”
