NGK SPARK PLUG Europe’s fully revised and expanded 2-wheel catalogue 2018–2019 is now available to the market. The publication covers NGK’s and NTK’s complete product range across the 2-wheel market, with layouts and content re-designed for faster product finding.
Featuring more than 1,000 new applications, fresh design, updated range overviews and a new vehicle register mapping feature, the 2-wheel catalogue 2018–2019 includes spark plugs, caps, glow plugs and oxygen sensors for motorcycles, scooters, all-terrain vehicles (ATV), side-by-side vehicles (SSV) and snow mobiles. Scooters are shown as a separate vehicle group for the first time. The publication lists eight spark plugs which the company only recently launched to the European aftermarket, including some which are OE on many Suzuki, Kawasaki, Honda and Ducati motorcycles. In total, the catalogue covers 16,500 vehicle applications across 456 pages.
Customer convenience was the top consideration for the new catalogue, confirms David Loy, Marketing Director Aftermarket EMEA at NGK SPARK PLUG Europe: “We want to make it as simple and speedy as possible for distributors to identify the right parts for 2-wheel vehicles of all kinds,” he says. “We completely reviewed our layouts for clear, easy use, and added exciting new features such as register mapping for every vehicle and product group. There is also helpful new advice on aspects such as reading our product codes, and what to remember when changing old plugs for new ones.”
