SALT LAKE CITY, UT / ACCESSWIRE / July 15, 2022 / Motos America Inc. (OTC PINK:WECT-D) (the “Company”), a publicly-traded motorcycle dealership group, announced today the official award of an open point BMW motorcycle dealership to be located in Roswell, GA, a suburb of Atlanta. The selection of Motos America for this open point dealership was confirmed following a meeting last week in BMW’s home market of Germany between Motos America CEO Vance Harrison and President Kris Odwarka with top BMW executives.
The new dealership will be located at a prime location in Roswell, Georgia. Motos America’s BWM dealership in Roswell will offer a complete line of new and pre-owned BMW motorcycles, parts, accessories, apparel and service capabilities in a new wholly dedicated facility.
“As an authentic lifestyle company focused on luxury branded motorcycle dealership operations and riding experiences, we can’t think of a better opportunity than to create from the ground up a new open point BMW dealership in Roswell, Georgia, which has convenient access to the major metropolitan area of Atlanta and several surrounding suburbs,” said Vance Harrison, Chief Executive Officer of Motos America. “BMW is one of the most exciting motorcycle brands globally. Demand is growing rapidly with over 194,000 units sold worldwide in 2021, an increase of nearly 15% from the prior year. With gas prices nearly doubling year-over-year and strong secular trends for remote lifestyles, we expect heightened interest for motorcycles overall and for premium brands such as BMW. We are grateful to have been selected by BMW and for the trust they have placed in our operational capabilities through awarding us this dealership site and for their continued commitment to our success.”
An open point dealership refers to a new dealership that has been or will be opened where such rights for the specific location were granted to a dealer by a motorcycle manufacturer. Motos America’s new state-of-the-art facility in Roswell will be equipped with all of the latest service technology and staffed by experienced BMW master technicians, service and sales people. A lounge equipped with TV, WiFi, comfortable seating and reading material will offer a place for customers and riders to share their excitement for the open road.
The financial obligations of the award to the Company will be defined in the coming months; however, the Company will not pay blue sky or other fees to BMW or any others for this dealership award, but will be obligated to make certain new motorcycle and parts purchases prior to opening the dealership. The Company expects to lease a building to house the new dealership. Leasehold improvements and build-outs will be negotiated with the new landlord.
