BMW and Husky ---????
« on: February 04, 2012, 05:48:36 pm »
Been speaking to the current importers as well as to BMW ---

Looks like the politics are still keeping us from seeing the new models --

At the moment the current importer has had no new stock on his floor for over a year --sad but true --Sorry Marco if you read this .

BMW on the otherhand want to bring the bikes in and they will be sold on the same floor as the BMW's

Only selected BMW dealers will have a franchise -now here is the catch 22 --BMW will -Not invest millions while their are still some shady Husqvarna agents out there -

Pity --some of the guys at Primrose have been verry helpfull and know the bikes like well.

My suggestion to them all is --go and work for BMW and get paid well for all your years of experience  ::)

Stop hurting the brand that is doing well world wide --KTM runs a neat an professional shop in SA and worldwide -


Learm from BMW and KTM --stop bitching and let us have what we want ---

BMW will not bring any 2011 models in they told me --Why ? because the 2012 models will be here in a few months --sooooo guy's i will hear this week what's happening and let us hope they sort out their differences and we can soon see Husqvarna back to its former glory ---

Hang onto your bike the value of them will turn as the start to get sought after again --
People DON'T Change --we just get to know them better

The Husky agent in CT is absolutely bloody useless. I would not even buy a can of chain lube from them.

Beta is not a bad bike at all --very good components as well -they were on the same floor as KTM when Pro-Action was still going --

Unfortunately they sit with the same dilemma as Husky not promoted very well  --Gas Gas is also a great bike --

You want to sell bikes --dealers like ktm and BMW know how --walk inside what you like  --pay and its yours

Not like --i will import you one --just pay up front ??? I want instant gratification ----not pay up front for something in have not even seen on the floor or test ridden.

Racing also sells bike Butch Hirsch used to sponsor a lot of riders --and winning races make the brand very visible --

Hijack on:

If BMW becomes the official importer / dealer for Husqvarna and the guys at Primrose don't want to work for BMW and you get a problem with one of the bikes bought from Primrose, I think BMW is going to gooi you a big toffie if you want to claim it as a factory defect. Sad but true!

Luckily we have enough huskie riders in SA who can fix there own bikes and do not need a Agent to fix the Older models --easy to repair and part -max 10 days from overseas if you need -- we have learnt to repair our own bikes out of lack of dealer support --
