2013 AIMExpo Off To a Big Start

Wednesday, October 16, 2013
The inaugural AIMExpo in Orlando, Florida kicked off with big news from a host of OEMs and accessory manufacturers. Perhaps the most notable is EBR’s unveiling of the 2014 1190RX, a superbike that boasts 426 new parts, 185 horsepower, meticulous design features and an $18,995 MSRP.

After that, EBR partner Hero announced its entrance in the US market in 2014 with EBR the exclusive American distributor. Four Hero mounts were on display after the announcement already offered internationally: the HF Deluxe, Hunk, Karizma and Pleasure scooter. EBR and Hero reps couldn’t confirm whether it would be only these four models to appear stateside or if others would be included as well. The names may change for American markets, too.

New LeoVince CEO and President Tim Calhoun discussed the new Airoh helmets available to American consumers, Bob Starr of Yamaha Motors announced the winner of the Star Custom Build-Off competition and Suzuki outlined specifics of the new V-Strom 1000 and Bergman scooter.

There were lots of new offerings from accessory makers too, from Shorai’s new lithium powersport battery to Sena’s newest Bluetooth headset and video camera. This just touches the iceberg of items on display at the AIMExpo and as it continues we’ll go into more depth on some of the items slated to hit markets in 2014, but for now check out the photos below for a taste of what’s happening in Florida.
