At one end of the main hall was an Italian pavilion, sponsored in part by the Italian Trade Commission. Here, the tiny booths were filled with beautiful, jewel-like motorcycle components, tastefully displayed. I also ran into Maurizio Ballicu, CEO of Verlicchi North America. The North American distributor is new, part of the parent company’s global strategy to become active in each market. They make frames for Indian, Buell, Polaris, Honda ATV and Harley-Davidson. For the Indian (re)revival, they will be making frames, handlebars and even exhaust components.
