According to the company, the following OEMs have authorized it to provide online parts fiche for dealer websites: Arctic Cat, BRP, Cobra Motorcycle, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Polaris, Suzuki and Yamaha. vNext’s parts lookup tool lists diagrams and parts side by side, eliminating unnecessary scrolling and providing a better shopping experience.

vNext also offers OEM new-vehicle catalogs, as well as OEM and aftermarket accessory catalogs.
