Powersports Business has shared aftermarket products released from BRP, Moose, Jack Wolfskin, KLIM, Yoshimura, and Pirelli.
BRP snowmobile handguard system
BRP has introduced a snowmobile handguard system that incorporates LED lighting that can be used to signal on-coming riders. Riding past on-coming traffic is safer with the handguard system. Rider’s hands remain on the handlebar as they use the LED light to inform others of what to expect behind them rather than using hand signals. This system is especially useful on tight windy trails, allowing riders to focus on navigating their snowmobile and maintain peace of mind that they are effectively informing fellow riders for everyone’s safety.
The system uses a four-mode dash-mounted switch to change colors on the left handguard where white is the default signature look, amber signals ‘caution – riders behind me,’ and green signals ‘last sled in the group’ or ‘single rider’. Riders can also engage dual flashing amber lights to signal ‘caution hazardous situation’ or ‘beware – I’m stopped’.
The system is an easy plug and play installation on Ski-Doo models featuring the REV Gen5 platform and REV Gen4 platforms with the addition of the 8602002740 retrofit harness. BRP strives to improve rider safety and by 2025, the company will introduce signaling systems for all Ski-Doo models. The LED handguard system is listed at $179.99

Pirelli SCORPION Trail III tire
Pirelli has released the SCORPION Trail III enduro street tire, developed for maxi enduros. The tire is completing its final and rigorous outdoor tests and will be on sale to the public starting in January 2024.
The Pirelli SCORPION Trail III presents an aggressive tread design and strong technological innovation. The new tire guarantees significantly improved road handling and sportier behavior thanks to excellent grip, as well as better performance in the wet. The SCORPION Trail III ensures stability even with a full load and can best interact with the machine’s electronic systems. Abrasion resistance has been significantly improved, which is an important parameter for those who love venturing on dirt roads.
The target machines of the SCORPION TRAIL III are those starting from medium displacements and above (over 400cc), which are fitted with 19- or 21-inch front tires; motorcycles capable of tackling long journeys and excursions with light off-road sections. During 2024, 17-inch front and rear equipment dedicated to crossovers will also complete the range.
