Tucker Powersports is a leading distributor of powersports products for motorcycles, ATV/UTV’s, snowmobiles, personal watercraft as well as a range of electric bikes and scooters. They just announced also the acquisition Kuryakyn Holdings LLC. Tucker will incorporate the Kuryakyn product offering and product development into the Tucker organization this year. Kuryakyn’s employees and suppliers also found out about the acquisition earlier today.
The acquisition moves Kuryakyn into the Tucker Powersports organization, rather than Kuryakyn operating as a separate business unit. All Kuryakyn operations, assets, and R&D programs will move from Somerset WI to Tucker’s headquarters in Fort Worth.
“This is a tremendous move for Tucker, for the Kuryakyn brand and for the dealers we serve,” said Tucker President and CEO Marc McAllister. “Kuryakyn’s industry-leading products will continue to be available to dealers and customers. Meanwhile Tucker becomes an even stronger supplier to dealers in not only in custom, cruiser and touring, but new market segments as well.”
Kuryakyn is one of the nation’s leading developers and retailers of motorcycle accessories for the V-twin, cruiser and touring motorcycle rider. The brand’s newest products include a range of audio speakers, LED lighting, and motorcycle luggage. Founded nearly 30 years ago, the company quickly became known for a range of chrome and custom accessories for motorcycles.
Tucker leadership also expects the transition will be complete by the end of the calendar year. Some of Kuryakyn’s employees will have an opportunity to join the Tucker staff in Fort Worth TX. Many of those moves will take place in the next 30 days. Kuryakyn’s R&D department and equipment will move shortly thereafter. Find out more here.
