March 12 2004. Motohaus have been appointed UK distributors for SW-Motech products in the UK.

Based in Rauschenberg, Germany, SW-Motech manufacture a range of innovative engineering products and initially Motohaus will focus on their range of centre-stands.

Few modern motorcycles are supplied with a centre-stand, making parking and routine maintenance difficult. So SW-Motech have developed a range of European-licensed centre-stands aimed at adventure-sport and traditionally styled motorcycles, such as Yamaha's Fazer 600, Kawasaki's Z1 and BMW's F650. Each centre-stand is carefully designed not to limit ground clearance or cornering angles.

Stands are produced for over 40 models from BMW, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki, Triumph & Yamaha. Retail prices vary, but riders can expect to pay £97.50 for the Honda CB1300 stand and £112.50 for the Suzuki SV650.
