R&G Racing, crash protection product maker, names U.S. distributor


R&G Racing, a U.K.-based designer and manufacturer of crash protection for motorcycles, has appointed distributor Twisted Throttle to increase its product supply in the U.S.

Twisted Throttle is an importer/distributor of motorcycle parts and accessories and operates out of a 25,000 sq. ft. facility in Peace Dale, R.I.

“We are proud to be associated with Twisted Throttle, and it’s a great addition to our distribution network in the United States,” Simon Hughes, R&G Racing’s sales director, says in a press release. “This agreement represents a significant step in building even greater availability of R&G Racing products in the U.S.”

Twisted Throttle will have R&G Racing products in stock in mid-January and is now selling to its dealer network.

The full range of products can be seen at Dealer Expo in Indianapolis Feb. 18-20 at the R&G booth (3735) and Twisted Throttle’s booths (5437, 5443 and 5451).

The product range also will be on display to the public on board Twisted Throttle's BMW S1000RR demo bike during Daytona Bike Week March 4-13 at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla.
