Motovation Protection Gear Hits the Streets of Willow Springs Raceway for the 2012 Aprilia Masters Press Launch - www.apriliamasters.com/#play
Aprilia held a 2012 Press Launch at Willow Springs Raceway allowing a handful of lucky riders to get some seat time on the Aprilia RSV4R, Tuono V4, Shiver 750 and Dorsoduro 1200. The goal was to allow riders of various skill levels to hit the track on the new bikes and get some real world feedback. The rider testimonials prove that Aprilia has stepped up the level of competition and has brought plenty of power to the party. When we were approached by the event organizers to provide the best level of protection Motovation offers for ALL the bikes in the launch, we were both proud and thrilled to be a part of the event. Each bike was outfitted with Motovation Frame, Fork and Axle Sliders. Check out all the rider testimonial videos here

"Crash protectors, crash bobbins, fairing protectors or frame sliders - whatever you call them, they're designed to defend outrageously expensive bodywork and structural components if your bike goes horizontal. Motovation's frame sliders are made from UV-resistant nylon, and are specially designed for each application to provide the most effective protection - not just the cheapest manufacturing cost or easiest installation. They're available for the most popular sportbikes starting at $80." - Henning, Ari Motorcyclist Magazine February 2011. See full article scan here
Motovation Kawasaki Z1000 Frame Sliders - November 2010 Super Street Bike Magazine - www.superstreetbike.com
Motovation recognizes that the easiest mounting configuration is not always the best for protection. Research and testing has proved that Motovation's mounting points will offer the best protection in a crash, but quality materials also play a crucial role. Aesthetics and quality of workmanship should also be considered when choosing the right frame slider for your bike as well. Motovation sliders use only high quality materials and mounting points that are proven to be the best for each specific model, so spend a little now or a lot later. See full article here
