PRODUCT: Systems’ Powerlift
motorcycle stand was designed to
lift up to 440 pounds via an electric
motor powered by an 18-volt lithium
battery. It features an aluminum frame
with a plastic protective shell that can
be personalized with custom graphics.
It includes a handle built into the top
for easy transportation. The battery
and charger are included.
POSITIVES: With the option for custom graphics, the available space to
promote sponsors is huge. Allowing a
rider to roll their bike into a lift position
without moving the stand at all is perfect, and then just pushing a button to
raise or lower a 200-plus-pound bike is
great. The battery power actually lasted way longer than expected. Having
someone or something put your bike
on the stand after a long moto might
seem like a small thing, but it’s nice
when it happens. Transporting the
stand is made easy with a built-in handle incorporated into the lifting pad.
NEGATIVES: In a world that a
motorcycle stand can be purchased
for around 45 bucks, shelling out more
than $350 can be tough to swallow.
The Powerlift is water-resistant, not
waterproof, so using it during washing
is not recommended.
BOTTOM LINE: This stand is not
for everybody, but if everyone tried it,
they would probably want one. It’s a
great concept, and the overall design
works extremely well. We especially
like the key-lockout safety feature
that prevents little ones from pushing
buttons and having a bike fall down
on top of them. We would expect that
come Christmas or birthday time the
Powerlift will be on lots of people’s
wish list—if they don’t go out and buy
