Arrow Special Parts was born in 1985 when Giorgio Giannelli established a company committed to the production of high-performance exhaust systems. The first products were designed for off-road bikes and very soon the success of these parts led to the start of the production of a growing number of exhaust systems and other “special parts” for various off-road bikes, accessories designed and developed together with the then 125-Class MX World Champion, Michele Rinaldi. After a couple of seasons, Arrow’s first World title was won, with Belgian rider Georges Job?? winning the 1987 500-Class MX World Championship on a Honda. Very soon, along with the range of exhausts and accessories for 2-stroke bikes, a new line of systems for 4-stroke bikes was designed and developed, and then tested in the demanding 1988 Paris-Dakar Rally, on race-winner Edi Orioli’s Honda.
