Since its founding in October of 2008, Asphalt & Rubber has risen to the top of the motorcycle industry, and now counts itself as one of the most influential voices in the motorcycle industry. Covering not only motorcycle news, racing, and rumors, A&R counts itself as one of the only sites covering entrepreneurship and business issues inside motorcycling, and is considered widely in the industry as one of the premier perspectives on the budding electric motorcycle industry.
With sophisticated editorials and pointed opinion pieces, Asphalt & Rubber not only challenges the motorcycle industry to re-evaluate its entrenched viewpoints and practices, but also provokes frank and earnest debates on hot-button issues. These pieces have made a name for Asphalt & Rubber, and they have been used in VC investment pitches by startup companies (see the “Tradition is Not a Business Model” series), and by the FIM and IOMTT (see the Conflict of Interest op-ed’s) in deciding issues of policy and business, just to name a few examples.
With Asphalt & Rubber‘s diverse commitment to not only covering what happens within the motorcycle industry, but also taking an active role in shaping and being a part of the industry, it shouldn’t be surprising that it is not uncommon to see other industry thought-leaders post a comment on Asphalt & Rubber, and we count many industry CEO’s as our loyal readers.
