Western Power Sports Secures Distribution Partnership with S&S Cycle
The open-ended partnership with S&S Cycle, a well-known and respected name in the v-twin space, demonstrates their confidence in WPS as a leader in the offroad aftermarket.
“At a previous company, I sold S&S for 15 years, I know their high-quality products and long history in v-twin, and I’m thrilled to bring the brand to WPS,” said Ronnie Wehr, senior vice president of sales, WPS. “It’s an exciting opportunity to take a well-known company and help grow its presence in a new market. Our sales team is known for growing brands into powerhouses, and we hope to do that for S&S Cycle in the offroad division.”
The initial product offerings include an XTO Exhaust and Tuning Inserts that customize the sound and power of the exhaust, and a Clutch and Billet Fuel Rail Kit for Kawasaki. WPS will also distribute the Kawasaki KRX Turbo Kit. It’s one of the most durable and well-sorted 1000cc SxS in the space, offering the KRX a 50% bump in horsepower.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with the team at WPS offering our expanding lineup of offroad performance products,” said Eric Bondy, vice president of S&S Cycle. “S&S and WPS are a great fit, and we’re looking forward to getting these awesome performance products into dealerships and the consumers’ hands!”
This partnership supports WPS’ strategy to offer dealers the best, most comprehensive, high-performance products nationwide. S&S Cycle’s offroad exhaust systems and performance parts are no exception.
“The UTV and ATV industry is growing, and our customer demand for customized, personalized parts is too. We can’t wait to get started with S&S Cycle,” said Wehr.
The new exhaust accessories and kits for UTVs are available now for order from WPS Online or through your WPS sales representative.

About S&S Cycle
The performance aftermarket, both 2 and 4 wheel, was born on race tracks around the world. Enthusiasts in their single-car garages grinding aluminum and welding steel late into the night, all in the hopes of a quicker ET or a higher top speed. For many, it stayed on the local tracks, a select few translated their passion for performance into global enterprises. In 1958 George Smith chose the latter, and across the next sixty-plus years, S&S Cycle would mature from a grassroots racing effort to a world-class manufacturer and OEM partner. All the while, racing has remained a core competency. From speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats to multi-year championships in American Flat Track, S&S is the go-to for high performance on and off the race track.
