Here’s Nifty Fifty, Part 1

Fifty nifty new products
To help you better plan your time at the Dealer Expo, the Editors of Powersports Business magazine have picked 50 products that we think might be worth looking at. The products selected for our Nifty Fifty award range from performance products to apparel.
We haven’t tested all of these products, but based upon advance information provided by manufacturers, we’ve selected what we believe could be 50 of the most interesting and potentially profitable items for dealers.
Here, then, are the first 25 products. The second 25 products will be presented in the Feb. 10 issue of Powersports Business. We’ll also have a list of the Nifty Fifty at our Booth #535, our home at the Expo. Stop by and see us.
