Motor Trike Acquires Accessories Manufacturer Hoppe Industries

 

 As of January 2018, Hoppe Industries is now under the Motor Trike family of operations.

 

For years, Hoppe Industries has manufactured award-winning motorcycle accessories made in the U.S.A. The product catalog has included an array of motorcycle fairings, windshields, trim, audio accessories, and more. Hoppe products will continue to be sold under the Hoppe name but as a subsidiary of Motor Trike, Inc., with all production relocated from Kenosha, Wisconsin to Troup, Texas. Continuing the tradition of quality founded by John Hoppe, Hoppe products will now have the added value of both Motor Trike engineering and customer service.

 

“We plan to keep Motor Trike and our dealers on the leading edge of the industry,” says Motor Trike’s J.D. Vey. “Hoppe Industries fits perfectly with our goals as a company in the next few years, both operationally and product development-wise.”

 

Motor Trike has plans to revamp the Hoppe brand online through its website and social media. Additionally, the company plans to update the existing product line and add more Hoppe accessories in the future.

 

At this time, Hoppe products may be ordered through the Hoppe retail site below, Authorized Motor Trike Dealers, and through both Drag Specialties and Parts Unlimited:

Can't get that song out of your head, now set your eyes on this
Can't get that song out of your head, now set your eyes on this

 

“Despacito” singer no longer slow and gentle

 

Yeah, he wanted his lady to move slow, gentle and delicately. But when star singer sensation Luis Fonsi wants to go solo, he rides fast and furious on a Custom Roadster version of Polaris Slingshot.

 

When you think of Miami what comes to mind? Exotic cars, beaches, and a great nightlife. Luis Fonsi, singer/songwriter best known for his 2017 hit song “Despacito”, calls it home. He recently set out on a mission to find the perfect gas-powered “toy” to experience all that Miami has to offer.

 

Alex Vega, long-time friend of Fonsi and owner of The Auto Firm knew exactly what vehicle he needed -- a custom Polaris Slingshot. “Luis called me and said that he had been thinking about getting a toy, something that I can drive on the weekends and just relax,” said Vega. “Right away my first thought was get a Slingshot, you’re in Miami!”

 

Vega and Fonsi, two artists in their own medium, designed a custom Slingshot the streets of Miami have never seen before. “It’s such a sexy, fun hybrid,” said Fonsi. “It’s the perfect car for Miami!”

 

To showcase the build, Alex tapped into his production team to create an 18-in TV show-like build video. Understand 18 min is a long video to share, so there is also three 1-min “teaser” videos. You can view the “episode” on Slingshot’s website.

A few of the obvious modifications include a black and orange paint job and the custom lighting in front including Fonsi’s “LF” logo illuminated on the grille. The same “LF” logo is emblazoned on the headrests of the custom seats in the interior. Another logo that’s prominent on this Slingshot is Vega’s Auto Firm logo which is on the hood, the steering wheel, and on the custom wheels. The Slingshot also has the optional Slingshade roof and what appears to be a custom windshield.

 
 

 

You Can Now Buy a New Polaris Slingshot for Under $20,000

 

The 2018 Polaris Slingshot lineup offers something like a bargain price. The unique "open-air roadster" just got a little bigger and the cost of entry got a little lower. All Slingshots are powered by the same GM Ecotec 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine which makes 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque lashed to a five-speed manual transmission.

 

The base model is now called the Slingshot S and its starting price is $19,999, which is $2k lower than last year’s base model. It’s only available in black, it doesn’t come with a windshield, and the much promoted Ride Command system is optional.
