Northants-based Motogear has been appointed the exclusive UK and Eire distributor of leading European motorcycle clothing brand Ixon.

Underlining its major investment in MotoGP – including the sponsorship of current Moto 3 championship runaway leader Brad Binder – Ixon will position its all-new double-decker race truck in the Silverstone paddock this weekend.

It is understood that Motogear has been in discussions with Ixon for some time, and the company’s director Trevor Hall said he’s impressed with the manufacturer’s vast infrastructure and passion for its brand. “We trust that Ixon will further complement our ongoing business strategy of working with specialist manufacturers. It will provide us with a complete collection of apparel, ranging from urban, adventure, touring, lifestyle and not forgetting motorsport. Not only is Ixon renowned for creating stylish attire, but it also takes meticulous measures to ensure its products offer optimum protection for riders. This new venture will bring many exciting opportunities for all.”

Commenting on the new partnership, Ixon’s president Thierry Maniguet said; “Motogear has over 15 years of experience and is renowned for its professionalism. It is therefore the ideal choice of partner to re-establish Ixon in the UK."

In addition to Binder, Ixon currently supports Bradley Smith and reigning British Superbike champion Josh Brooks.
