Arrow was founded in 1985 in Italy by Giorgio Giannelli to make high performance exhaust systems.
Since 2000 Arrow parts have been used on bikes that won 20 World Titles, in SBK, SS, MX and Supermoto.
The company also produces exhausts by the name of Mohican and Giannelli.
Arrow Special Parts was founded in 1985 when Giorgio Giannelli (a talented motocross rider) realized his dream of founding a company dedicated to the manufacture of high-performance exhaust systems. The first products are for off-road bikes, and the success of these parts quickly led to the production of an increasing number of exhaust systems and other "special parts" for various off-road bikes, accessories designed and developed in collaboration with Michele Rinaldi, the then 125-Class MX World Champion.
After a few seasons, Belgian racer Jobè won the 500-Class MX World Championship, which was his first World Title.
Soon after, a new line of exhausts and accessories for 4-stroke bikes was created and developed, complementing the range of exhausts and accessories for 2-stroke bikes: these exhausts were tested in the difficult Paris-Dakar rally, and were on the race-winning Honda of Edi Orioli in 1988.
Arrow is finally recognized as one of the most prominent companies and brands in motorcycles in the 1990s. The expansion of export markets is being fueled by a long string of victories in races. These are the years of Puzar, Parker, Schmidt, Schwantz, Moore, Biaggi, Doohan, Criville, BARTolini, and Chambon, all of whom won World Championships while riding Arrow exhausts.
In the 1990s, substantial expenditures in research and development were undertaken, with the R&D department and the Race-Lab being established to provide direct on-track support to the teams. Arrow cements its position as a major player in the motorcycle industry and market, introducing additional product lines such as scooter and street bike exhausts.
In these years, the first tests with carbon fiber and titanium are carried out. Arrow goods will achieve new heights of quality and elegance in the next years thanks to these innovative materials.
Arrow's dedication to racing and motorsports has yielded impressive achievements in recent years: more than 40 World Championships in a variety of classes, to which we can add all of Arrow's successes in local and national races.
The pursuit of higher performance, better materials, and a distinct style had an undeniable impact on manufacturing. Arrow can now design, develop, test, and manufacture exhaust systems for sportbikes, streetbikes, off-road motorcycles, tourer / cruisers, scooters, and maxi-scooters. A large portion of the items are offered in a street legal form that adheres to European standards and is developed in collaboration with Europe's leading certifying authorities.
