Mustang Returns To Motor Bike Expo In Verona

Verona_PerewitzMustang Seats will be joining in the festivities as the custom motorcycle world congregates in Italy for the 2016 Verona Motor Bike Expo (MBE). Set for January 22-24 at the Veronafiere facility, this international trade fair encompasses 880,000 sq./ft. with more than 600 exhibitors. A strong American contingent, led by Mustang, Küryakyn, Crusher, Bahn, Performance Machine and Vance & Hines will be highlighting this year’s show.

“Verona is one of the must-attend European shows for Mustang,” says Director of Global Business Development Marilyn Simmons. “It gives us an opportunity to meet our riders as well as to personally educate, support and build even better relationships with Mustang’s dealers and international distributors.” Recognizing the importance of the Motor Bike Expo, Simmons is showing off several new seats for the European market, including a pair of Signature Series saddles from legendary builders Dave Perewitz and Fred Kodlin.

Mustang Hits The Road For 2013 Rally Season

27 Feb

Riding season is finally here and the entire crew at Mustang Motorcycle Products is more than ready! To celebrate our 2013 mission statement — “It’s All About The Ride” — we are hitting the road with a new look and a new big rig to help launch the season in style as part of the Bike Week festivities in Daytona Beach, Florida.

If you are planning to take Spring Break early and going to Daytona for Bike Week, be sure to stop by the Speedway to see Mustang’s new look and new products first hand. “After 30 years of making the world’s most comfortable motorcycle seats, our focus has shifted to the ride ahead,” says Product Manager Matt Kulman. “Mustang now has seats for Gold Wings, with Victory Cross Country and Triumph T100 models coming very soon.” Which means Mustang may just have a seat for you!

“We have several other exciting additions to our full range of seats for metric cruisers and Harleys to be announced very soon,” Matt adds. Some of this excitement stems from collaborations with our friends at Küryakyn and racer-turned-designer Roland Sands. “Working with talent like this has resulted in cutting edge designs that are combined with Mustang’s well-established reputation for comfort.”

We are proud of the fact our seats are still handcrafted in the historic facility in Three Rivers, Massachusetts, but we recognize that it was time expand into new markets. To help get the word out, we are taking our rig on the road, starting with Bike Week in Daytona. Be sure to stop by the Mustang display at the track to see what’s new. While you are there, check out the RSD café racer seats (available exclusively through Drag Specialties) and our full line of luggage… and don’t forget to get a copy of our 2013 catalogs for Gold Wings, Metric and H-D® applications.

Of course, even if you can’t ride to Daytona for Bike Week, you can still “Like” Mustang on Facebook@ www.facebook.com/MustangSeats.
