A quick look at the 2016 collection.

Alpinestars recently introduced its 2016 motorcycle collection with 50 new or significantly updated on- and off-road products. Company officials also discussed the business side of the sport and provided an update on the Tech Air Race and Tech Air Street airbag systems.

Communications Manager Jeremy Appleton opened the event with economic news. “Alpinestars’ performance has been particularly strong over the last financial year,” he said. “We achieved growth worldwide, both in established markets, like the US and Europe, and emerging markets. We’re seeing the release of new sportbikes and technology from the manufacturers and that’s positive for the industry as a whole.”

Product development and the technology that Alpinestars brings to the market remain the primary drivers for this success, Appleton said. “Development of new products has allowed us to build strength with our dealers and distribution partners, and increase market share. Our continuing success in MotoGP with riders such as Marc Marquez, Jorge Lorenzo, Dani Pedrosa, Andrea Dovizioso, Cal Crutchlow, and emerging star Maverick Vinales is especially relevant with road performance.

“It’s those technical partnerships that really enforce the relationships and provide our athletes with a critical performance advantage,” Appleton added. “I can’t overstate how important that is to our riders. We contribute directly to their performance, and that’s why many of our riders have long-term relationships with us, in many cases for their entire careers.

“There’s no better example of that than Cameron Beaubier, who is currently leading the MotoAmerica Superbike championship, and JD Beach, who just won the Supersport series. It’s important that you get a sense of this because it’s their testing—their involvement and feedback on our products—that help us bring better products to our customers. We strongly believe in that philosophy.”

Appleton also touched on the Tech Air Race and Tech Air Street airbag systems, which he called the “culmination of 13 years of dedicated research.” Use of the system in MotoGP began in 2009. “Tech Air Race has contributed directly to the street system but the two remain very much dedicated to their particular purpose,” he said. “Tech Air Race is track oriented and Tech Air Street is for our customers. We’ve launched the system into Europe, so our customers are buying airbag systems to use for everyday riding.”

Alpinestars intends to bring Tech Air Street to the US, possibly as early as next year. “We haven’t quite got to the date yet,” he said. “We very much want it to be here, and I don’t think it will be too much longer before we can announce news of that.”
