PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announced that existing member benefit partner Bikebandit.com has increased the retailer's discount for AMA members to 10 percent, a significant increase over the 6 percent discount that the online retailer previously offered AMA members.
Initially, the increased discount was provided for the months of December and January. Following the successful completion of that special offer for AMA members, Bikebandit.com decided to extend the larger discount indefinitely.
The discount is effective immediately and offers AMA members some serious savings on OEM (original equipment manufacture) and aftermarket parts, particularly when combined with the current sales and closeouts found at www.bikebandit.com/specials. To take advantage of the discount, AMA members simply need to enter their AMA number in the box provided at checkout.
"A recent survey indicated that over the last 12 months, nearly 40 percent of the AMA's 300,000 members spent more than $500 on motorcycle accessories and more than 40 percent spent more than $500 on maintenance and supplies," said AMA Director of Business Development Jim Moore. "Just as significant, 64 percent of our members report that they sometimes, occasionally or always make those purchases online. As such, this relationship with Bikebandit.com stands to save our members a lot of money."
Bikebandit.com Marketing Manager Kailin Terrill added, "AMA members are some of the most dedicated riders on the planet, and we're happy to support them as they maintain their motorcycles and personalize their rides with aftermarket parts and accessories."
Bikebandit.com has become a go-to online destination for genuine OEM parts, in addition to its full slate of popular aftermarket brands. The website includes easy-to-navigate blowapart diagrams of motorcycles from Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, KTM, Triumph, Husaberg, BMW, Harley-Davidson, and others.
