Tucker Powersports announced that it is acquiring Kuryakyn Holdings LLC. Tucker will incorporate the Kuryakyn product offering and product development into the Tucker organization this year. Kuryakyn’s employees and suppliers were informed of the acquisition.
“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 while Tucker becomes an even stronger supplier to dealers in not only in custom, cruiser and touring, but new market segments as well.”
The acquisition will move Kuryakyn into the Tucker 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, TX.
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 for on and off-road use, 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 expects the transition will be complete by the end of the calendar year. Some of Kuryakyn’s Somerset, WI 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.
