Motorcycle and specialist tyre distributor Bickers will launch a new Click & Collect website on 10 March. The company said it has developed the site to help its motorcycle tyre customers gain online sales. It will promote Click & Collect to consumers as a way to drive footfall to dealers’ shops. Bickers wants to develop its Click & Collect Partner network with the new site too. It says the new site will help participating partners to increase profits, promote growth opportunities, to network and upsell additional items. Backing its new site, Bickers adds that Office for National Statistics data shows retail online purchases have increased by 42 per cent in 2020 over 2019. This big jump is an effect of national and regional lockdowns to combat the pandemic, but also follows the long-term retail trend towards online purchases.
Maxxis’s MaxxEnduro motorcycle tyre has been chosen as the OE fitment for the 2022 range of Beta RR Enduro and RR Racing Enduro motorcycles. The MaxxEnduro tyre features a nimble 90/90-21 front tyre, which offers the precise steering and reliable handling any enduro rider needs. The rear tyre is a grippy 140/80-18 tyre with chunky tread blocks providing a big contact patch for sheer surfaces such as rocks and hard-pack terrain. The sharp block edges cut into looser surfaces for consistently reliable grip across an entire enduro course.
Bickers has appointed Joshua McMartin as its new purchasing manager. The son of current managing director Derek McMartin, Joshua has become the third generation of the McMartin family to achieve a management position for the aftermarket parts and accessories supplier. Bickers is the sole UK distributor of Maxxis and CST motorcycle and ATV tyres.

Lead-acid battery units have been the technology of choice for automotive SLI (Starting, Lighting and Ignition) applications for the past 150 years.

Whilst the Stag is an all-weather, all-conditions tyre that offers fantastic year-round performance, the Behemoth has been designed with dryer conditions in mind and is classed as an intermediate ATV tyre, designed to conquer any trail in woodlands or desert environments.
