KC-International in San Antonio, TX, has been sold. Not sure when it will close. However it was sold and will purportedly relocate to another motorcycle business located near 410 and Fredericksburg.

Turns out they are going to a motorcycle business which sells used bikes. I was told by the previous owner that they will be an authorized Ducati & MV dealer. Hopefully, the new owner will send a mechanic to the Ducati school, as the previous KCI mechanic(s) is not going to the new dealer. PS - There's a Bimota DB7 still at KCI.

Correct?

Word is these are the guys that have acquired the Ducati/MV Agusta franchise from KC. We also know that a very capable mechanic will be joining their staff shortly.

Best wishes to the new owner.
You must be right. Their website lists brand new Ducatis for sale. I don't know how I missed that. I wonder when Ducati and MV will list them as official dealers on their websites.

I've confirmed it personally with the mechanic that will be moving to their new dealership. The new owners will move into a new building in a couple of months. Steve is the Ducati mech here at Ducati Austin and is already MV certified and is scheduled for more MV training before taking on his roll at new San Antonio dealership. He's a great Ducati tech, so he'll be great for MV.

Yeah, I spoke with John (the owner) and can confirm what Redduck1 has indicated. However, he did stress that they would not be ready for another couple of months and really want to get the store off on the right foot and to professionally take care of their customers. He is well aware of Kamal's (previous owner) reputation and what he is having to overcome with his well known, trashy reputation.

John seems very excited and is wanting to truly be an excellent MV Agusta and Ducati dealer and is working hard in putting everything meticulously together with both brands. He will have a full service shop with a certified tech and will also be including gear and accessories along with parts.

John will not open until they are completely ready. I can only hope that their customer service is as good as he is hoping it will now become. He has got the entire central and south texas as his area, as the Agusta dealer is Houston gave it up about 2 years ago.

However, this is all on the down low. And they will not take bikes in for service until they are 100% ready to deliver 100% customer satisfaction.

Their future looks good and I for one will be more than willing to give them a shot at earning my business.

Crooked River MC's in Akron Oh is no longer an MV dealer but can still work on them. New owners dropped MV in favor of Triumph as they feel Triumph will generate more sales.

Certified Mechanic?

Is there a current Level 2 mechanic at KCI?

On a similar, yet different topic, I'm trying to get a hold of Chris who used to work at KCI. Was told he moved to Dallas.

Chris, if you read this, please ping me.

Thanks
