KYT Americas welcomes Herrin to the team as the newest MotoAmerica rider in an already stacked lineup

Daytona Beach, FL; March 8, 2024 – KYT Americas proudly announces the addition of seasoned racer Josh Herrin to its roster of sponsored athletes for the 2024 racing season.

Herrin will debut his KX-1 Race during the Daytona 200 as he looks to defend his 2023 title. Herrin is no stranger to winning, with multiple championships in several different classes—most recently the 2022 Supersport Championship on the Ducati Panigale V2 with his current team. 

Herrin, a veteran in the MotoAmerica paddock and one of the biggest names in American road racing, brings a wealth of experience and talent to the KYT Americas team. Racing his second season on the Ducati superbike Herrin looks to improve on his impressive second place finish in the 2023 MotoAmerica Superbike series. 

Consistently finishing on the podium throughout his career, Herrin is poised to make a significant impact wearing the KYT KX-1 Race.

As a sponsored racer for KYT Americas competing in the premier national series, Herrin will be equipped with the cutting-edge KX-1 Race helmet. The FIM homologated KX-1 Race, designed and developed in Italy and tested by Ducati Corse Factory riders, is the latest KYT helmet infused with world-class safety and aerodynamic technology. Boasting an enhanced vertical and peripheral field of vision (92 deg and 210 deg) and weighing approximately 1400 grams, the KX-1 Race is a game changer. 

Josh Herrin commented on the new partnership; “I am excited to be joining the KYT family for 2024-25. I have a great relationship with the team at KYT Americas and think that KYT will be one of the leading brands in America. They have great style, great fit and great protection that is priced for everyone to enjoy!”

“The KYT Americas team is looking forward to having Josh join the expanding KYT Americas family.  Josh connects with racing fans but also attracts attention from outside of the industry with his tenacity and creativity.  We can’t wait to see him running up front in MotoAmerica Superbike this year in his new KYT helmet!”
