Magnaflow teams up with Arlen Ness for V-twin entry
Magnaflow, a performance exhaust manufacturer with a longtime presence in the auto industry, announced a new partnership with Arlen Ness Motorcycles to manufacture and sell a complete line of co-branded exhaust products. Known as Arlen Ness by Magnaflow, the high-performance, high-quality, made in the USA exhaust systems will be designed by Arlen Ness for American V-twin motorcycles.
The new product line made its world debut on the National Geographic Channel’s “Let It Ride” series starring Zach Ness in October. Magnaflow has been a leader in exhaust performance, technology, design and manufacturing for more than 30 years. Arlen Ness is an icon in the custom motorcycle world with a 40-plus year history of building custom bikes and high end parts and accessories.
Motorcycle industry veteran Chris McGee joined Magnaflow earlier this year, and serves as the director of the company’s motorcycle division from its Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., headquarters.
Arlen Ness has been producing custom motorcycles and high end, trend setting parts and accessories for Harley-Davidson, Victory and Indian motorcycles for more than 40 years. Arlen Ness now turns his talents to designing a complete line of co-branded exhaust systems. Magnaflow, with its extensive experience and expertise, will manufacture, market and sell the new Arlen Ness by Magnaflow exhaust line worldwide.
“Magnaflow is thrilled to partner with the legendary Arlen Ness,” McGee said. “With Arlen’s trend-setting, timeless designs and Magnaflow’s R&D, engineering, manufacturing and customer service capabilities, we have combined for one of the most powerful product launches in recent memory. Arlen Ness and Magnaflow, two world class brands, partnered to deliver the highest possible quality and performance exhaust products for your motorcycle.”
“I am very excited about the new Arlen Ness by Magnaflow exhaust line,” Arlen Ness said. “Cory, Zach and I have been working together on some really exciting designs that look and sound amazing. I can say the industry has never seen anything like the new Arlen Ness by Magnaflow exhaust line. You are going to want to put these pipes on your bike.”
“On this season of ‘Let It Ride’ we built some killer bikes with great craftsmanship and some great parts,” said Zach Ness, host of the series.
