TRW Motorcycle

TRW Aftermarket

TRW Quality Based on Tradition

TRW – Quality, performance and an appealing design thrill motorcyclists and motorcycle dealers throughout the world. The history of the TRW brand extends back over many decades. One of the first chapters started in 1874. That year, the English company Joseph Lucas & Son began supplying the fledgling auto industry with accessories. The company purchased Girling, a brake manufacturer, nearly 70 years later and successfully expanded into the brake and clutch technology business.

A number of motorcycle technology milestones can be attributed to Lucas Girling, including the development of the world’s first disk brake, asbestos-free brake linings for motorcycles as well as steel braided brake and clutch lines. TRW – a company rich in tradition that is simultaneously one of the most important original equipment manufacturers in the automotive industry as well as in aerospace – purchased Lucas Girling around the turn of the millennium.

TRW became part of the technology company ZF Friedrichshafen AG in 2015. Today, ZF Aftermarket offers a broad product portfolio of spare parts and accessories for motorcycles under the TRW product brand. Whether for touring bikes, superbikes, scooters, enduro bikes, trikes or quads, the portfolio includes brake components, clutches, handlebars, brake and clutch levers, rearsets, jack-up kits, lowering kits and superbly designed accessories.

The TRW product portfolio fulfills the high quality standards of the international automotive industry and guarantees a maximum of safety and performance. In addition to ISO 9001, TRW is also certified according to ISO/TS 16949, the latest and most stringent quality standard of the international automotive industry. TRW motorcycle spare parts and accessories are available everywhere through specialist retailers or online.
