www.PowersportsBusiness.com Powersports Business • November 6, 2017 • 25 FOCUS PSB Bottom homepage navigation provides additional tools for users and shops alike, including links to Avon Motorcycle Tyres North America's builder profiles, tech bul- letins and warranty information. "The new website provides Avon customers with easy-to-use tools and resources when researching and exploring new tires," said Ken Warner, vice presi- dent of Marketing for Avon Motorcycle Tyres North America. "The dynamic tire finder, tech information library and dealer locator are valuable resources for custom- ers and dealers." NEW BIKE LIFTS FROM HANDY Iowa-based Handy Industries has released its new Standard 1200 and S.A.M. 1200 Air Lifts. They are enhanced versions of the company's original 1000 lifts. Maintenance- free air bellows replace the original air cylinder. An automatic ratcheting safety mecha- nism uses dual springs to create a posi- tive lock as the lift is raised. The safety mechanism then flips back to lower the lift, resetting the lift as it reaches the bot- tom, eliminating the need for operators to reset the safety bar. The new lifts also have boosted weight capacity from 1000 pounds to 1200 pounds. The Standard 1200 Air Lift features a tabletop work surface of 80 inches by 24 inches and a maximum height of 39 inches. The S.A.M. 1200 Air Lift features an 84-inch-by-24-inch work surface with a maximum height of 39 inches, as well as the same rear drop-out panel from the original S.A.M. 1000 lift. The same quality accessories from the original 1000 Lifts — side extensions, a CV-17 Cycle Vise, rear extension — can be used on the new 1200 Lifts. FOX RACING LAUNCHES LE RODKA FLEXAIR LINEUP Fox Racing has launched its Limited Edi- tion Rodka Flexair racewear and the Rodka V3 helmet. Flexair has become known as the industry standard in performance func- tion, rider comfort and style, while V3 boast Fox's exclusive (MVRS) Magnetic Visor Release System. PSB DIGEST State's dealers to get 1-day delivery of parts and accessories Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. has enhanced its parts distribution network by adding a For- ward Stocking Location (FSL) in Plant City, Florida, that will provide standard, one-day shipping of parts and accessories to the major- ity of Suzuki powersports and marine dealers located in Florida. Beginning in October, the FSL facility began serving Suzuki dealers in Florida as their pri- mary shipping location. The new facility and its goal of one-day delivery is in response to Suzuki's growth in the Sunshine State and will greatly benefit dealers and customers that reside there. "As customers experience faster delivery methods for their personal shopping, we are always looking at ways to bring that experi- ence to the world of Suzuki," said executive vice president Mark Eastman. "There are a lot of Suzuki customers out on the roads, the trails or the water of Florida and we can now provide them and their dealers a fast response to their parts needs." Suzuki's motorcycle/ATV and marine deal- ers were alerted recently to the new facility and provided information on how to address certain business needs with other Suzuki Parts Distribution Centers. PSB Suzuki boosts dealers with Forward Stocking Location in Florida Products like Suzuki's Ecstar oil lineup and clutch kits will be available to Florida dealers via one-day shipping thanks to Suzuki's new Forward Stock- ing Location in Plant City, Flor- ida.
