RICHMOND, CA – October 15, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – LeoVince USA continues to evolve and grow, and the company is now an independent distributor under the continued guidance of President and CEO Tim Calhoun. Now known as LeoVince USA Specialized Products Distribution, the shift will allow LeoVince USA to continue building strategic distribution partnerships with other quality brands.

For Calhoun, who has been a part of LeoVince USA since its inception over 9 years ago, this is the next step toward bringing the best performance products to both dealers and their customers.

“As LeoVince in Europe undergoes a dramatic reorganization and modernization to offer a more market-specific approach to product development, LeoVince USA is diversifying to not only offer our current lines of performance products but a rapidly-growing collection of exceptional brands, as well,” Calhoun says. “This change will have a positive impact for riders and dealers who want exceptional products that are sold and serviced by a technically savvy staff, offering a rarely-seen ease of doing business. We’re selling items we use ourselves that we can stand behind. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

For the past two years, LeoVince USA has been adding distribution partners such as Airoh Helmets, GPR, Vortex Racing, BMC Filters, Dion Device, VARTA powersports batteries and Bridgestone Race Tires. Calhoun says that list will continue to grow, but LeoVince USA will choose only a small selection of the top performance products.

“We want to continue to identify great brands, ride them, test them and then offer them to our dealer network,” Calhoun says. “We want to correctly represent and service each brand, be able to speak about them knowledgably, and have an intimacy with those products so dealers and consumers can buy with confidence.”

LeoVince USA expanded in 2012, adding a second warehouse. Now, the company has warehouses on both coasts and is poised for the growth of their distribution partnerships. Like all of the LeoVince exhausts and carbon fiber products, the additional brands will feature dealer programs.

LeoVince USA will be on hand during the AIMExpo at booth 901, October 16-20, to showcase their full line of products and to discuss their expansion and reorganization. Among the products already available through LeoVince USA are:

Airoh Captin Helmet

Airoh Helmets: The top off-road brand in Europe is now available in the US, beginning with the top-of-the-line Aviator 2.1.

There are three graphic designs in various color choices as well as solid colors.

LeoVince USA Vortex Sprockets

Vortex Racing: Vortex Racing’s premium line of high-performance motorcycle components are a staple in club and pro racing, and now those components are partnered with LeoVince USA’s technical savvy and racing success.
