How to reach a new level of F&I profits

1 02 2016

February 1, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Shortening a consumer’s time spent with an F&I manager could result in a revenue spike of hundreds per unit and thousands per month. In fact, this process has been credited with metric dealers averaging more than $500 (plus documentation) in F&I sales per unit sold and even more than three times that for V-twin dealers.

How can a dealership successfully adopt this process? That and other key F&I learning elements will be detailed in an upcoming powersports-specific program called the F&I Manager Training Academy. The academy has been created by Garage Composites, the industry’s leading training providers, and will be led by Steve Dodds, a powersports F&I expert and well-known industry speaker and columnist.

The academy is unique to the industry as it brings training to a new level, providing a series of trainings for F&I professionals instead of just one session or just one multi-day event. F&I professionals will meet three times with Dodds and other Garage Composite training experts over a nine-month period. At each meeting, program participants will learn about effective industry-specific processes and compliance issues, plus review their results with peers to identify strengths and challenge areas.

This latter part will be key to producing effective F&I managers, which is why Garage Composites will require interested F&I managers to pass an application process to qualify for the training.

“We are going to take a small number of F&I managers and raise them to the next level,” Dodds said.

Dealers are encouraged to contact Garage Composites quickly to secure a seat for their F&I manager in the program, which starts on March 14. All three of the academy’s training sessions will be held in Denver.

For more information on the F&I managers training academy, contact Garage Composites at info@garagecomposites.com.

Ducati North America Breaks Previous Sales Record with 12,132 Motorcycles Sold in 2015

1 02 2016

CUPERTINO, CA – February 1, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  In 2015, Ducati North America increased unit sales by +14.1%, based on 12,132 total motorcycles sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico. This is the sixth year the company has shown impressive overall sales growth in its largest worldwide sales region.

  • North American Market (United States, Canada and Mexico) sales exceed all records with 12,132 motorcycles sold in 2015, up +14.1%
  • Tremendous growth in Mexico with more than 1,000 units sold, up +85%
  • Increasing momentum for 2016 sales Ducati expands into new segments with XDiavel cruiser and Multistada Enduro dual-sport model.

All three countries reached historical sales levels, with the United States at 9,674 units sold (up +10%) and northern neighbor Canada at 1,458 bikes (up +12%).  Mexico, thanks to the addition of new exclusive Ducati dealers, experienced significant increases, with 1,003 motorcycles sold – a growth rate of more than 85%.

Ducati North America

In 2015, the top models sold by the Bologna-based manufacturer in North America have been the hugely popular new Scrambler line of urban naked bikes, the lightweight, 148 horsepower 899 Panigale sport bike and the Monster 821.  Notably, these three models have shown special appeal to the wave of new and younger riders entering the world of motorcycles.  In the U.S., Ducati’s largest single worldwide market, power reigns. The radical 1299 Panigale and sport-touring Multistrada 1200, while 2015 sales standouts, also received strong critical acclaim for technological advancements in motorcycle design and riding features.

“Our success in North America is the result of the hard work of the entire Ducati organization and our network of dedicated dealers,” Dominique Cheraki, outgoing CEO of Ducati North America. “I am proud of what we have collectively achieved during the past five years of my tenure and I’m enthusiastic of what the future holds for the brand.”

Future growth is strongly anticipated in 2016 since more than 45% of Ducati’s model line-up will be all-new offerings.  Two new motorcycles in particular, the XDiavel and the Multistrada Enduro, offer the potential to tap rider segments that were left untouched by any Ducati product in the past.

The XDiavel, the undisputed star of the EICMA show in Milan, blends design, technology and unparalleled performance to deliver a relaxed riding experience that merges the foot-forward riding position of a typical cruiser with the adrenalin rush of a true sport machine.  Riders will have the opportunity to find out for themselves during Ducati’s “XDiavel Experience Tour,” which will visit more than 15 cruiser hot spots, starting with Phoenix on February 20, through Daytona Bike Week and beyond.  Ducati dealers will have XDiavel models available for sale in their showrooms early this Spring.

The “Wild Side” of Ducati comes in the form of the highly anticipated Multistrada Enduro, arriving at Ducati dealers in April.  Building on years of experience elevating the technological superiority of the Multistrada, engineers in Bologna have crafted the Enduro model with 19-inch front wheel and 7.9 gallon gas tank for long distances.  The motorcycle is also available with various off-road accessories as well as knobby tires and other features designed for the avid dual-sport rider.

Jason Chinnock now leads as newly appointed Chief Executive Officer, coming from Automobili Lamborghini America where he was in charge of marketing operations. Chinnock is no stranger to Ducati, having worked for the company in sales, marketing and dealer operations roles since 2000.  With 10 years of experience in European motorcycle sales management on both the OEM and the dealership level, Kris O’Hare comes on board as national sales director. Laurence Kuykendall recently joined Ducati North America as the new marketing director, with a seasoned career in advertising and experience with a leading European motorcycle company.  Rounding out the changes is Jason Routhier, whose success in managing Ducati sales in the Northeast will be expanded to the new role as commercial manager, Eastern U.S.  He will take charge of sales and marketing responsibilities for the three regions on the east coast of the U.S.

“It’s a tremendous honor and responsibility to lead Ducati North America into the next chapter,” said Chinnock. “We have a clear objective to continue the growth of our brand in a manner that delivers a premium experience to our owners and profitable business for our dealer partners. I am confident that we have built a strong internal management team. This, coupled with an outstanding dealer network and a tremendous product offering, will give us the ability to fully capitalize on the opportunity in this market.”

Restless Travellers Launches Wheelrider – the World’s First Solar Powered Travel Carry-On Motorcycle Top-Case

4 11 2015

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – November 4, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Restless Travellers, creators of Wheelrider, today launched its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

Wheelrider is revolutionizing motorcycle top-cases with a contemporary design and multi-functional purpose. Wheelrider has merged two essential items into one for riders who are always on the move. A motorcycle top-case that becomes carry-on luggage on wheels.

With a built in solar panel, Wheelrider is also equipped with a direct USB port to attach a standard cable that lets users charge their phones, tablets, or a spare power bank. This is an important function for riders who need to stay connected on the road for safety and fun.

The creator of Wheelrider saw a need for a top-case that was modern, convenient, multi-functional and aesthetically pleasing.

“After years of traveling on my motorcycle and dealing with suitcase trolley problems on road trips, we set out to create something that every rider can use while they are on tour,” said Stefano Mangini, creator of Wheelrider and avid motorcycle rider. “I created a new ultra-tough luggage dock system that is versatile, looks great and can be used as a travel carry-on case with wheels.”

Wheelrider has a diverse mounting plate that attaches to the rack of the motorcycle, and can host additional accessories such as a pouch containing a helmet and seat covers, as well as a built in helmet lock.

The contemporary design has interchangeable tops that allows riders to choose the size of their case depending on their needs – including the proper size for overhead bins for use as an airplane carry-on.

Wheelrider comes in a variety of colors, including night blue, ice grey, and deep red – finally bringing color and beauty to the traditionally dull top-cases currently on the market.

“We have created a new generation of modular top-cases that will transform the function, style and versatility of motorcycle top-cases forever,” added Mangini.

Wheelrider is available on Kickstarter starting at discounted early bird price of $190. For more information, and to pre-order Wheelrider, visit: Kickstarter.

About Restless Travellers and Wheelrider

The idea behind Restless Travellers is about creating modular products for people in motion. It was inspired by a journey from Shanghai to Italy by motorcycle. This trip identified a need to solve problems for travelers and people that are on the move and that need modularity, by combining different functions into one convenient product. Restless Travellers has a goal to improve the way we move and see this world, and Wheelrider is a great product for this goal.

INTERIOR: The interior is designed for a professional traveler. The middle section features utility pockets and a computer compartment that has the option to be removed for additional storage space.

DIMENSIONS: Flight carry-on: 45cm/25cm/39cm. Fit your helmet: 45cm/30cm/39cm

THE LOCK: The lock that secures the top case to the base attached to the bike, has been developed based on the technology used for fuel tanks caps. The lock is made of metal and uses a new generation of keys for extra security.

DURABILITY: The base is made of ABS, by injection molding. ABS provides the correct balance between strength and elasticity, preventing cracks under continuous vibration.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Waterproof, built-in Solar Panel, available in pure carbon fiber.

The next generation of Triumph Bonneville motorcycles

28 10 2015

Triumph Bonneville. Reborn.
More beautiful, more powerful, more capable.

ATLANTA, GA – October 28, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –

  • Introducing the next generation of the iconic Bonneville – with five exciting new Bonneville motorcycles.

From the fun and accessible ridability of the new Street Twin, to the timeless style of the Bonneville T120 and T120 Black through to the Thruxton and Thruxton R, the Triumph racing legend reborn.

All with 100% authentic Bonneville character and truly modern capability and performance.

  • Powered by an all-new Bonneville engine family built specifically for the modern classic riding style, with more torque, more immediate and exciting power delivery, and a richer sound you can really feel and hear.
  • With a new ‘ground up’ chassis and suspension design unique to each Bonneville – delivering stunning handling, comfort and control.
  • Each model, a beautiful evolution of the iconic Bonneville styling – tighter and more crafted, with enhanced styling cues faithfully taken from classic Bonneville bikes of the past.
  • Named after the salt flats in Utah where Triumph set the motorcycle world land speed record in 1956, Bonneville was THE original British Superbike and a genuine motorcycle icon, recognised the world over.

2016 Triumph Bonneville Group

We are proud to announce the opening of a new chapter in the story of the most famous name and distinctive silhouette in motorcycling: the Triumph Bonneville.

This four year project, that started from the ground up, called on an unprecedented scale of design, engineering and manufacturing skills.

The result – the next generation of the iconic Bonneville. A family of five exciting new motorcycles with 100% authentic Bonneville character, style and presence – all featuring a class-defining level of performance, capability and quality, driven by an all-new Bonneville engine family.

With a dedicated chassis and suspension package for each new model and a carefully integrated package of rider-focused technology for enhanced confidence, control and performance, the new Bonneville family all ride and handle how
a class-leading, truly modern classic should.

The new Bonneville model line up
Five all new Bonneville models – all with 100% authentic character, beautifully enhanced styling and truly modern performance.

The Street Twin is our most contemporary, fun and accessible new Bonneville, powered by an all-new high torque 900cc engine. With its unique character, distinctive sound, stripped-back styling and dynamic riding experience, the new Street Twin is the perfect Bonneville for today’s rider and the perfect starting point for personalisation.

The timeless style and iconic character of the original 1959 model is reborn in the classy and authentic Bonneville T120 and effortless cool Bonneville T120 Black. Both crafted to the highest standard of detailing, quality and finish, and matched by the capability and performance of a truly modern classic. Powered by the all-new Bonneville 1200cc high torque engine, fed by beautiful, authentically styled, twin throttle bodies.

The new 1200cc Thruxton and Thruxton R are the real deal. With genuine poise, power and performance, they are the ultimate modern classic café racers. Both with beautifully imposing and authentic styling, they have the power, braking, performance and handling to live up to their legendary name.

New Bonneville Engine family
The Bonneville engine family is the new heart of the iconic British twin.

Built specifically for the modern classic riding style, each new engine delivers more torque, more immediate and exciting power delivery and a richer sound you can really feel and hear.

With three new engines:

The 900cc high torque engine of the new Street Twin.

Delivering a massive peak torque figure of 80Nm at a low 3200 rpm – which is an amazing 18% more than the previous generation, delivered low down and across the whole rev range.

The 1200cc high torque engine of the Bonneville T120 and T120 Black.

Built specifically for the modern classic riding style, it produces a massive peak torque figure of 105Nm at a low 3100 rpm – more than 54% higher than the previous generation T100.

The game-changing 1200cc high power ‘Thruxton spec’ engine. With immediate, exciting power delivery and a massive peak torque figure of 112Nm at 4950 rpm – an amazing 62% higher than the previous generation Thruxton.

All with truly modern capability, including the pinpoint accuracy and instant throttle response of Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection system, and  liquid cooling that improves fuel economy by an amazing 36% on the Street Twin alone. In addition, the 1200’s all feature rider modes for enhanced responsiveness and control.

The unmistakable sound of a British twin

Each model has a totally new exhaust system and a unique exhaust note that matches its character, tuned to a level that you can feel and hear.

More Beautiful
Designed from original Bonneville lines, more refined, sharper, tighter and crafted, applying styling cues faithfully taken from the classic Bonneville bikes – like the 1968 Bonneville and the 1959 original.

They feature high quality finishes and a striking level of detailing to enhance their iconic looks, such as the beautifully crafted new Monza-style filler cap on the Thruxton.

An innovative approach to sensitively incorporating modern functionality, including the exhaust system on the T120 and T120 Black, which has an authentic and clean straight through design, achieved by an ingenious twin skin design that covers the pipe run, through the cat box under the bike, and out again.

More capable
The inclusion of rider-focused technology has been implemented with care to deliver an engaged and safer ride, without compromising the style or character of the bikes – this includes ABS, traction control, slip assist clutch, ride-by-wire throttle and rider modes (T120, T120 Black, Thruxton R and Thruxton), distinctive LED rear lights on all models and LED DRL headlights on all the 1200s (where legislation allows), USB charging socket and an engine immobiliser.

A completely new, ground up chassis design unique to each motorcycle, incorporates all-new suspension and geometry, so all of the new models deliver stunning handling, stability and neutrality tailored to the style and character of each motorcycle, making them easier to ride for longer. This is particularly true when combined with the light action of the new slip assist clutch.

More ways to make your own Bonneville yours
With the launch of our new Bonneville custom accessories range, presenting over 470 new, stylish, high quality accessories, it’s never been easier to create your own special. This includes new exhausts from Vance & Hines and a garage full of custom inspired parts, from mudguard removal kits, to bench seats and beautiful compact bullet indicators to name only a few.

To make it easier, we’ve also created a set of exciting ‘inspiration’ kits to use as the starting point for riders to create their own Bonneville custom, or to have fitted by their Triumph dealer as a complete set – from Scramblers and Brat Trackers, to Track racers and Café racers. This includes, for the first time, a full factory Thruxton R Race Performance kit, specifically developed for closed circuit competition.

An unparalleled bloodline

Named after the Utah salt flats where a Triumph 650 Twin streamliner, piloted by Texan racer Johnny Allen, shattered the two-wheel world land speed record in 1956. First produced in 1959, the T120 Triumph Bonneville was the original British superbike and, thanks to its legendary handling, style, character and sheer individuality, it has become a genuine icon to riders the world over.

Our five new Bonneville models draw on the distinguished and unbroken Triumph heritage of performance and style, from the Speed Twin 5T, the original 1937 500cc parallel twin that set the template for British motorcycling, followed by the 1949 Thunderbird 650, famously ridden by Marlon Brando in ‘The Wild One’, to the rip-snorting Tiger T110, the bike that the original 59 Bonneville eclipsed with its new twin carbs and class-leading performance.

The Bonneville played a major part in the creation of modern motorcycle motorsport and was a race winner ‘straight out of the crate’ – from Isle of Man TT wins, to flat track racing, to the International Six Day Trial and the Thruxton 500 series, where the racing Bonneville gained its legendary name.

In its early years, it inspired a sub-culture of teenage rockers and café racers, drawing attention and turning heads at coffee bars and burn-ups all over the country – becoming the ride of choice for stars and celebrities like Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood and Bob Dylan, and again today, chosen by a new generation of customisers and riders looking to own a real icon.

The future of the Bonneville, not a futuristic Bonneville

The interest and appeal of modern classic motorcycles is growing and evolving quickly, with many manufacturers bringing new models onto the market.

From the rider’s perspective, they want beautiful motorcycles with real character and traditional values, combined with contemporary levels of
refinement and capability.

Our new Bonneville family takes the legendary story to the next chapter – with a major injection of performance, and real riding capability, without losing the original character of the iconic Bonneville, and without becoming a techno reinvention with just a styling nod to the past.

They are what our customers have asked for and what the next generation of Bonneville should be – more beautiful, more powerful and more capable.

With all of the character and style of the iconic original, and the power, performance and capabilities modern riding demands, the new Bonneville family takes the legend into the 21st century.

Bonneville. Reborn.

AIMExpo Introduces True Value President and CEO John Hartmann as Event Keynote Speaker

2 09 2015

Engagement Will Focus on How Dealers Evolve
to Stay Relevant to Today’s Buyers

IRVINE, CA – September 1, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  With its largest event to date approaching, the American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) today announced its 2015 keynote speaker – True Value Company President and CEO John Hartmann. Hartmann is an avid motocross rider, but in the business world he has nearly two decades of corporate experience at the senior executive level, including 11 years in the home improvement/hardware retail sector.

150902-True-Value-Company-President-and-CEO-John-Hartmann

Hartmann will share some of his experiences and progressive business models with AIMExpo attendees on Friday, October 16 from 9 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. inside the Chapin Theater at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center. Intended for all industry attendees – dealers, media and exhibitors ‒ Hartmann will kick off day two of AIMExpo’s trade days.

True Value is one of the world’s largest retailer-owned wholesale hardware cooperatives with gross billings of over $2.0 billion in 2014. The True Value cooperative includes approximately 4,400 independent retailer locations worldwide with 13 regional distribution centers, approximately 2,500 True Value Company Associates and over 35,000 store associates.

“The True Value business model operates similarly to that of retailers in the powersports marketplace,” said Hartmann. “While True Value co-op stores differ from dealerships that operate as franchises for manufacturers, dealers are still independent brick-and-mortar retailers much like those with True Value. As a result, the challenges of operating the business and maintaining its success in this new age of retail are virtually one and the same.”

Hartmann’s commitment to an aggressive plan of growth for True Value, ensuring the future success of its retailers and associates, is a significant reason why he’s become a respected figure in the business world in his short tenure with the company, which he joined in May 2013. With past experience at big box giant The Home Depot and industrial distributor powerhouse HD Supply, Hartmann possesses a diverse range of knowledge and a knack for improving businesses exponentially.

Perhaps even more intriguing is Hartmann’s 10 years as an agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). As someone who was assigned to a variety of the FBI’s investigative areas, Hartmann honed interpersonal skills – listening, understanding and empathizing – that have had a significant impact on his ability to grow businesses. Moreover, his affinity for two wheels makes him particularly invested in the health of the greater powersports industry, and it’s why he’s eager to share his experiences and strategies with the AIMExpo audience.

More than 500 exhibitors have already committed to AIMExpo in 2015. Exhibitor presence builds each day and companies looking to take advantage of the AIMExpo platform should contact an AIMExpo Account Manager toll-free at 855-MCShows (855-627-4697).
