There’s been a steady consolidation among motorcycle aftermarket companies and it continues with this acquisition of Jardine by SuperTrapp. SuperTrapp previously took on Kerker and now, with Jardine, have a very comprehensive line of exhaust products as well as many other products for both motorcycles and ATVs. It looks like SuperTrapp will be one of the survivors as the industry adjusts. This addition should make for a stronger company and assure the continuation of the Jardine line.
