Kenny Roberts announces KR Tuned


Kenny Roberts. Brilliant rider and racer. And a never-say-die businessman

Kenny Roberts (500cc motorcycle grand prix racing world champ in 1978, 1979 and 1980) has announced his new venture, KR Tuned, which will focus on high-end, high-performance exhaust systems and chassis components for sportsbikes.

Kenny says KR Tuned will apply learnings from MotoGP while creating exhaust systems and other performance accessories for street-going sportsbikes. Apart from his racing successes in the late-1970s with Yamaha, Kenny Roberts has been running his own MotoGP racing team for the last many years, albeit with limited success. In 2007, he will be running his KR212V MotoGP bike, which uses an 800cc engine supplied by Honda. Kenny Roberts Jr. (Kenny Roberts’ son, and 500cc motorcycle GP racing world champ in the year 2000) will be riding the KR212V.


Expect to see (and hear...) this in your neighbourhood soon

KR Tuned products will be marketed through an alliance with Hotbodies Racing, who also sponsored Kenny's MotoGP team in 2006. For more details, visit http://www.hotbodiesracing.com/ and http://www.krtuned.com/
