Performance and Enthusiast Offerings From the 2019 SEMA Show
For many decades, motorcycles and ATVs dominated the powersports category. In recent years, however, UTVs have exploded onto the scene, becoming the category’s chief growth driver. Still, there is a lot of crossover in the powersports lifestyle, and enthusiasts frequently own more than one type of vehicle—not to mention a truck to haul their weekend toys.
Regardless of vehicle, performance parts are always in demand, along with anything that increases durability and looks. Lighting, audio, wheels, tires, suspension components, lifestyle items—the market seems limitless. The following pages present the latest powersports-related offerings from the 2019 SEMA Show New Products Showcase, along with some insights from category experts.
“You can get a Polaris, Kawasaki or a Can-Am UTV, and they all look different with the accessories you can get. That’s what is cool about this industry and why it’s booming so big—there is so much crossover.
You can build these vehicles to spec. Say you’re an outdoorsman: You can put a tent and different things on the cage and go out and use it as an expedition vehicle. Or you can put some bike racks off the side if you’re a mountain biker. Truly, the sky’s the limit. That’s what makes me excited to go to work every day.”—Tyler Greves, Media Manager, SuperATV
“Riders are going to ride. That’s the beauty of our business—we’re an enthusiast-driven purchase. Your car is transportation. The fact that you like it and you like the interior trim, the stereo, etc., just makes for a more comfortable ride while you’re going to work.
People who buy powersports, 90-plus percent, are buying their escape from life. It’s what they’re doing on their weekends, their nights off, when they get done working. They’re going out to get a release.”—Rob Greenwald, President, The PowerSport Solution
