WRP handlebars – “racer confidence”

Italian distributor, parts engineer and brand owner Wind Trading says that its “WRP Taper-X handlebars and Pro-Bar oversized handlebars are designed to meet or even exceed the strength and quality of OEM bars.

“WRP’s fleet of sponsored riders prove this race after race, as they put their motorcycles and their handlebars through extreme situations on a regular basis. Ten of the 60 riders competing in the 2022 MX2/MXGP season have full confidence in WRP handlebars, making WRP one of the top two handlebar providers in the series”.
Confidence is something that can be difficult to measure, but WRP has done it by adding up the number of professional racers who trust the brand’s handlebars – a simple way of judging how reliable its handlebars are, but an effective way too.
This season, WRP Taper-X and Pro-Bar handlebars are being used by Factory Beta SDM Corse and JWR Honda in MXGP. SM Action GasGas and KMP Honda use WRP handlebars in both MXGP and MX2.
Among the standout riders on those teams are Beta’s Jeremy Van Horebeek and GasGas rider Alberto Forato in MXGP, as well as GasGas’ rising star Andrea Adamo in MX2.
