The holiday season has arrived and that means it’s time for the Twisted Throttle Holiday Gift Guide. Our staff has put together a list of great motorcycle gifts for any budget and riding style. Most of the items on the list are universal and the rest were chosen due to their massive range of vehicle applications available. If our Gift Guide doesn’t have something for you, shop the rest of the Twisted Throttle store!

We could ramble on all day about how great the D7 is, but you will likely enjoy watching a video about it instead: DENALI Light Comparison.
There is a reason that motorcycle manufacturers outfit their bikes with GIVI side cases because they work! The GIVI V37 series builds on the legacy of GIVI luggage by providing storage for a modular helmet or additional camping gear. Increase the storage capacity of your bike with lockable and sleek storage from GIVI!
The AltRider skid plate is the only design on the market that doesn’t rely on the engine as a mounting point. The inherent weakness of all other current designs is that they use the motor itself as an anchor point. By mounting to the outside edges of the skid plate AltRider created the maximum triangulation yielding a very stable skid plate to resist twisting into the bike when hitting rocks on the outside edges. Best of all, AltRider designed the skid plate so it doesn’t require removal to change the oil on the bike!
