Success Story #7: S3 Performance

S3 Performance

S3 has been in the business of selling quality bike parts, accessories and different apparel for the Australian market. It has been slowly making its presence felt in the motorcycle industry by bringing affordable and dependable bike parts closer to consumers. Some of S3 performance motorcycle accessories are used for racing mods, general electronics such as tail lamps, speedometers and driving lights.

Though there are various mods to think about when looking to improve bike performance. Performance in different areas such as speed, steering, control, stability, balance and comfort are few areas to work on in bike modifications. Higher displacement bikes tend to have more tweaks and tests to keep the machine up and running in top condition or as specified by the rider. S3 specializes in mods for bigger bikes on or off road.

A motorcycle is a machine, little adjustments can go a long way. This goes especially to the handling of the bike that may change for the worse if done incorrectly by a novice mechanic. One good thing to keep in mind is that not all newer installations on bikes are good for the machine itself. Sure, that carb could improve engine response but how about the durability? Will it last more than the stock part and will it prove to have significant improvement in performance? These are few things to think about with these complicated bike parts.

Sure, there are good parts out there so you have to make good research about their performance, specifications, compatibility with your bike and so on. One good replacement that you can start with your bike is the exhaust. No, not necessarily the whole system but the pipe that you use on your bike. Keep your stock pipe just so you have one in spare. Having a good pipe on your bike means more power in the throttle and engine exhaust that lets it breathe more rather than being compressed inside the machine most of the time. This is one modification that you’ll really feel immediately as soon as you start your bike.
Some exhaust pipes out there just look good but suffers in performance, durability and design. The pipes from S3 do not only look good on bikes, they sound and work good too.The design does not have awkward bends and cuts as other pipes have. Exhaust tubes also undergo a special polishing and strengthening process to ensure durability and good aesthetics. The wide array of pipes and fittings are a welcome sight to street and off road bikes alike. A spark arrestor fitted in the pipe lets the rider choose between a trail friendly lower decibel exhaust and race-ready mode.

That they’ll assure you since they ride bikes fitted with the products we sell. It takes a rider to know what a fellow rider needs.


Success Story #6: iTeddy

Innovation and unique vision are two major things that could make an entrepreneur successful. Imran Hakim, an entrepreneur from Bolton, was able to combine these two perfectly with his educational gadget invention for kids which he called iTeddy.

Hakim introduced his invention in the hit British television series called Dragons’ Den. The show features various entrepreneurs and their unique products and gives them an opportunity to present their ideas to a panel of wealthy investors called the “dragons”. If the panels think their business pitch is outstanding, they will be investing on the said business project.

The idea of iTeddy was developed when Hakim’s brother, Zubair, challenged him to come up with a unique birthday gift for his niece, Aaminah. At first, he thought of giving her a personalized talking birthday card, but then he thought that he can do something more and better. He did his market research, developed the prototype and improved the product.

iTeddy has been very successful in the United Kingdom. In fact, it is one of the top gadgets that have been sold in 2011. The teddy is interactive—it can play bedtime stories and cartoons in its detachable personal media player. Other media content that will definitely entertain and educate the kids can be downloaded from iTeddy.com, a website that Hakim also created.

“iTeddy aims to develop a new brand that provides products and services designed to make a child’s first steps in today’s hi-tech world educational, less daunting and most importantly, fun,” Hakim shares. He also recognizes the ideas injected by Pete Jones and Theo Paphitis, two of the Dragons that have invested in his project.

With the affordable retail price of this educational and entertaining product for kids, it is not surprising that it has been a total hit for all the consumers. This is also a good indication that Hakim’s success will still continue in the future.


Success Story #5: Reggae Reggae Sauce

One of the most important things that a certain brand should achieve is that it should be easily recalled by consumers. Levi Roots, the creator of Reggae Reggae hot sauce, was able to accomplish this and eventually brought him success in his business.

Roots has been living a poor life when he was a kid growing up in Jamaica. However, his road to success also started from the hit British television series called Dragons’ Den. He pitched his idea to the panel of five wealthy investors by singing a catchy song that he wrote and ended up impressing two of the ‘dragons’, Peter Jones and Richard Farleigh. These two invested £50,000 in his Jamaican jerk spice called Reggae Reggae Sauce and that was the beginning of his great success.

Reggae Reggae Sauce was created from his grandma’s recipe, a secret family recipe that has been passed down from generations. Now, the said sauce is being sold over hundreds of supermarkets in United Kingdom. It has been a hit and according to Sainsbury’s, the sauce is  “outselling tomato ketchup in each of the 600 stores stocking it”.

Aside from his sauce’s success, Roots also opened a restaurant, been invited into various speaking engagements (where he is being paid £1,500 for a single event), released a song (and gave all the proceeds to charity) and has a Reggae Reggae sauce pizza that is currently being sold at one of the biggest pizza chains in the world, Dominos Pizza. He has also been working on his recipe book entitled “Levi Roots’ Reggae Reggae Cookbook”.

Roots successes have been very inspiring, since he was able to branch out to different fields by using his Dragons’ Den fame. He was able to deliver and prove to people that with hard work, determination, vision and passion, everything is possible.
