September 2 2014.

R&G has now been appointed a UK distributor for the recently released ‘WD-40 Specialist Motorbike’ range of maintenance and care products.

The British company is the leader in producing and distributing motorcycle damage protection products along with an increasing range of general motorcycling accessories to over 1250 UK dealers as well as every continent globally.

Alton-based R&G will carry high levels of stock for all eight products from the motorbike-specific line, including its world famous multi-use product (MUP), with dealer margins of 50% for the ‘Specialist Motorbike’ range and 40% for MUP.

The distinctive products are broken down into three categories; Clean, Lube and Protect. Chain Cleaner, Brake Cleaner and Total Wash (available in one or five litre) make up the cleaning range, Chain Lube and Chain Wax are the choice of lubes, with Silicone Shine and Wax & Polish rounding off the protection and finishing for a bike.

Although split cases of products are available without any reduction to margins, dealers who commit to stocking the full complement of the brand will be well rewarded with greater opportunities for profit along with an eyecatching, powder coated premium display stand that can be installed by a dedicated merchandiser from WD-40. In addition, R&G has an exclusive introductory purchase offer for stock commitment. Further details of this are available on request.

Simon Hughes, R&G Managing Director, said: “This isn’t R&G’s first encounter with the blue and yellow brand, as we have sponsored and protected the bikes of the championship-winning Team WD-40 competing within the British Superbike championship for the past two seasons".

“It is this partnership that has led to the opportunity to work with WD-40 and I’m delighted that they have chosen and trusted R&G with their world renowned brand. Much like we are, the WD-40 Specialist Motorbike range is dedicated to riders and fits in with our ‘protection all round’ ethos.”
