Spidi has announced its forthcoming collaboration with Honda to develop the Honda X Spidi technical apparel collection. The first Honda X Spidi line, dedicated to the new CRF1000L Africa Twin, will be available at Honda dealers in several countries worldwide, starting Spring 2016.
The Honda X Spidi collection will feature the most technically advanced and emerging safety developments for the rider, including the Spidi Warrior technology, designed to increase safety while maximizing rider comfort. Spidi will take the lead in the Honda X Spidi product development and will manage the production and distribution, through its logistic facilities in Europe, USA and Asia.
Nicola Dalla Grana, President of Spidi Sport Srl stated “We’re proud to have been chosen by Honda as their partner in this new venture; our aim is to provide all Honda dealers with the vast experience and technical knowledge Spidi has gained in developing safety products since 1977. We’re sure our passion for quality and research will match Honda values.”
Ian Bland, Head of Marketing and Accessories Management – Motorcycle Division, Honda Motor Europe:“With the new CRF1000L Africa Twin Honda have created a bike for riders who want to go anywhere and fulfill their ‘true adventure’ dreams, so it was very important for us to also offer our customers the best riding gear to go with their bike. Spidi was an obvious choice of partner for us thanks to their reputation for making high quality, stylish performance riding gear. The new Honda X Spidi jackets, pants and gloves have been specifically selected and developed in terms of function and design and we are delighted to be able to offer these to our customers.”
