Innovate apparel manufacturer REV’IT will return to Austin, Texas, this weekend to support the art of handcrafted motorcycles during the second-annual Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.
REV’IT! Sport USA is a returning sponsor of the show presented by Revival Cycles, and will display its 2015 urban Tailored Technology collection, alongside a dedicated exhibit of custom motorcycle gloves honoring the spirit of the show.
Held the same week as MotoGP at Circuit of the Americas just outside of Austin, the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show brings together custom work by over 100 of the country’s top builders and craftsmen, set against the backdrop of art, food, and the legendary Wall of Death.
“After a hugely successful first year for Revival Cycles’ Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, we’re back this year with the help of partners like REV’IT! who understand and cater to moto-obsessed creatives and their audiences, ripe to soak up the passion we all put into our projects. We couldn’t be more excited,” show creator Alan Stulberg says.
The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show will be open free to the public Friday, April 10 (6 p.m. – 1 a.m.); Saturday, April 11 (12 p.m. – 1 a.m.) and Sunday, April 12 (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.). For additional information, visit Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.
In addition to the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, REV’IT! will co-host a Moto GP opening party with AF1 Racing and Aprilia on Friday, April 10, from 7 to 10 p.m. at 304 East Cesar Chavez Street in downtown Austin. REV’IT! sponsored rider Alvaro Bautista will make an appearance for the unveiling of the Aprilia 2016 RSV4 RF.
Yamaha will also debut its “Yamaha by REV’IT!” collection, a new line of co-branded street jackets and gloves, at the Circuit of the Americas in Yamaha village, kicking off a season-long consumer sweepstakes to win new gear.
