HeliBars replacement handlebars now distributed by Western Power Sports
Heli Modified, Inc. announced that its TracStar and Tour Performance HeliBars handlebars and handlebar riser systems are now available through more than 8,000 Western Power Sports dealers nationwide.
Heli Modified president Harry Eddy is looking forward to having HeliBars products represented by the WPS team of 100 road reps visiting dealerships and a dozen inside sales professionals.
“Partnering with Western Power Sports is the culmination of work HeliBars has done over the past two years increasing our production capabilities and improving processes,” Eddy said. “With WPS creating opportunities for dealers to become more familiar with HeliBars, it will be easier for their customers to enjoy our American-made products.”
HeliBars’ improved ergonomics have enabled motorcyclists to enjoy greater comfort and ride longer distances since 1987. Handcrafted in the U.S., HeliBars raise handlebars up to 2.5 inches over stock and are up to 4.5 inches closer to riders, depending on the bike brand and model.
“WPS is proud to offer HeliBars to our dealers. It is a long-time, well-respected brand that has not been available through distributors before,” said Dan Lopez, WPS 2/4 Wheel Product Director. “The HeliBars product is such a great concept, allowing motorcyclists to make riding their bikes a more comfortable and enjoyable passion.”
HeliBars’ complete line covers more than 70 models of Japanese, European and American motorcycles: sportbikes, sport tourers, touring bikes and cruisers.
New Heli comfort systems are being introduced for seven bikes this year. They include the BMW K1600GTL, Honda CBR250R and Gold Wing, Kawasaki ZX-14 and ZX-10R, Yamaha FJR1300 and R6.
