Arrow Special Parts was born in 1985 when Giorgio Giannelli (a very good motocross rider) makes his idea come true, to establish a Company committed to the production of high-performance exhaust systems. The first products are those designed for off-road bikes and very soon the success of these parts led to the start of the production of a growing number of exhaust systems and other “special parts” for various off-road bikes, accessories designed and developed also together with the very important address of Michele Rinaldi, then 125-Class MX World Champion. After a couple of seasons, the first World Title arrived, when the Belgian rider Jobè won the 500-Class MX World Championship. Very soon, alongside with the range of exhausts and accessories for 2-strokes bikes a new line of systems for 4-strokes bikes was designed and developed: tested in the demanding Paris-Dakar rally, these exhausts were on the race-winning Edi Orioli’s Honda, in 1988.
In the 90’s Arrow gets its final acknoledgment as one of the most important Companies and Brands in motorcycling. A vast series of successes in races is the background for the growth in export markets. These are the years of Puzar, Parker, Schmidt, Schwantz, Moore, Biaggi, Doohan, Criville, BArtolini, Chambon, all crowned World Champions and using Arrow exhausts: there’s no area in motorcycling without an Arrow exhaust at the top. This line-up of riders was a big boost in creating the Arrow brand and also was fundamental to reach the level of quality, performance and reliability of Arrow products. Arrow’s commitment to racing and motorsports gave enthusiastic results in the last years: more than 40 World Titles in many different classes, to which we can add all the victories Arrow got in local and National races. The quest for higher performance, better materials and unique style had an unquestionable effect on production. Arrow parters with Companies like Aprilia, Betamotor, Husqvarna, Moto Guzzi, MV Agusta, KMSB (Kawasaki Malaysia), Piaggio and Triumph. With the strength given by a 30-years-long background, experience and knowledge, Arrow is facing today markets’ challenges trying to take all the opportunities that these challenges offer. The Company looks beyond, a young Company marching to the future, with enthusiasm and energy. This makes Arrow a market leader and a benchmark.
