Tampa dealer bowing out !!

HI MV Aficionados

I stopped by the Tampa dealer this week and they told me their dropping MV Agusta.

They stated quality problems and parts support was weak.

Dam, I hope somebody wakes up and fixes the problems !!

Thx

Sorry to hear that... same boat here in Houston, TX. If I have a warranty issue my option is to transport bike to Dallas-- although Dallas dealer said MV would actually pay for transport...

Never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly....

The UK also has a dwindling number of MV dealerships, which is certainly a concern.

Here is an excerpt from 1/2018 interview between PowerSports Business & Joseph Elasmar, then newly appointed MV Agusta distributor for the US which addresses plans for expanding MV US dealer network:

"Next year we will continue developing and expanding the dealer network to improve customer accessibility to our motorcycles and service centers, with the aim of reaching a network size of 55 dealers across the U.S. and 10 dealers in Canada. In addition, we are also working through plans to launch flagship stores in some key locations that we anticipate to announce in first half of 2018."

Closures in Houston and Tampa certainly do not correlate with this plan. This is reminiscent of the 90's which saw globally known brands such as Alfa Romeo, Fiat, etc. leave the US market.

When we were at Laguna Seca last year, we got the privilege of chatting with folks in the MV Agusta supply chain...from the top of that chain...and we asked them about supply problems, dealerships and clothing/accessories.

The response was that the company is assessing current dealerships for performance and coming up with a plan of replacement. In other words, they are going to change locations and performance of dealerships by closing some and opening new ones.

I am waiting to see some new dealerships in the US.

Well that sucks...

I really like Euro Cycles and tell everyone about them. I prefer them over the one in Miami due to the friendliness and at home feeling when at the dealership.

Being located in Oregon, if I have an issue I am looking at a bit of a drive (4hrs) to get the bike to an actual dealer (Bellevue, WA)... The sad part is, Portland, Oregon is typically one of, if not the #1 Ducati dealer in the nation every year. They used to carry MV & Aprilia, but both were dropped due to continual lack of factory support & parts supply, Sounds Familiar.

We do have the DucShop here in Marietta..... MV only sales, but major player in Ducati performance and repairs.

They have invested in training and tools for MV support and have been excellent for me with parts availability/pricing inquires, and getting me parts I order quickly.
They also stock MV service parts.

I think DucShop is the kind of dealer MV USA is looking for. Problem is finding these kind of people with the financial underpinnings to make it work.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
