Windsor-based, family-owned Motorcycle Armor, producers of precision-cut paint-protection-film kits for motorcycles, has received a Nifty 50 Award from Powersports Business. The company’s “Hard Bagger Lid Kit” in matte film was named a 2012 award winner by the magazine’s editors.

“We’re proud and excited to have the work we do here locally recognized by industry experts,” said Christine Detwiler of Motorcycle Armor. “As matte or ‘denim’ paint has become popular, owners and dealers across the country and around the world have discovered that maintaining and repairing this finish can be a challenge. Our kits make it easy to protect and preserve any motorcycle’s finish, matte or glossy.”

Motorcycle Armor’s two-piece Hard Bagger Lid Kit provides owners with a copyrighted design that covers the entire top of hard side saddle bag lids, as well as all side edges. It is available in matte film, for bikes with denim paint, and optically clear film for bikes with glossy paint. The kit, like all Motorcycle Armor products, is designed to fit a variety of Harley-DavidsonTM motorcycles from 1993 through current models.

Both the clear/glossy and matte versions of Motorcycle Armor kits not only protect the paint finish they cover, they also help hide any existing minor scratches or scuffs. Installation takes 15 to 20 minutes, and kits include everything needed for application except a spray bottle. An online step-by-step video instruction is also available on the website to aid installation.

The complete product line of Motorcycle Armor kits available include kits for hardbagger saddle-bag lids, hard bagger backs and fronts, front fork sliders and upper slider covers, fuel tanks, side covers, front fenders, and trike rear wheel fenders. Additionally, a 13-piece kit is manufactured to provide complete protection for Street Glide© or Tri Glide© Trikes.

In its 13th year, the Powersports Business Nifty 50 Awards annually selects 50 new products or services it believes worthy of prominence. Winners are highlighted in the magazine and in the Powersports Business booth at the Indy Dealer Expo.
