2010 Multistrada 1200 Fever — Ducati Austin

March 25, 2010

These days you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting one story or another about the 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200 and we here at Dealernewsblog don’t want to be left out of the loop. After all, who doesn’t want to get hit by a dead cat?

Our pal Robert Pandya passed along some cool videos of Ducati North America’s Jeff Brooks giving a tech talk about the new bike to a group of committed Ducatisti at Ducati Austin. According to Pandya, close to 50 hardcore Multistradisti (is that a word?) lined up on a Sunday morning to get the low downistsi on the amazing tech and specs of this cool new ride-isti. (Remember 150hp!) Let’s just end the stupidity here and move onto the videos. Thank’s Robert!

Ducati’s Michael Lock Speaks …

March 4, 2009

to who else but our favorite industry cad and all-around good guy, Robert Pandya, during a quick tete-a-tete (except for the camera man and those guys in the background) at Dealer Expo.

Lock has interesting take on what dealers need to be doing right now as the economy continues to ooze and drip. Lock suggests “Don’t sell a product, sell an entrance to a club.” Make sure customers are happy and engaged and know that there’s much more to motorcycling than two-wheels and a motor. It’s all about the lifestyle baby (that last bit was mine.)

heeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeee’ssssssss Robert and Michael

Dealer Expo From the Inside Out

February 25, 2009

Because we can’t seem to get enough Robert Pandya around this place here is a video of him cruising Dealer Expo 2009, jawing with various industry movers and shakers about current economic issues. From Pandya:

What we found was an optimistic industry that is adjusting for some changing times. Looks like dealers and companies paying close attention to the marketplace are adapting to the conditions and positioning themselves for success in the future.

And heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeee’ssssssssssss Robert:
