Dave Marton, returns to work in his hometown of Geelong, this week as Service Manager for MOTO TECH KTM Husaberg and Kawasaki. Dealer Principal Maurice Fisher said that he was excited that a mechanic of Dave's experience would be able to take the MOTO TECH Workshop, to the next level. “For a number of years Moto Tech has been the region's leading off road bike repair shop, but it was time to step it up a notch and expand our services to a bigger array of road bikes than we currently service as well as jet ski’s. With Dave's significant technical achievements both here and for 15 years overseas, there would be no one more qualified to fill this role,” Maurice said. After having great success here in Australia with, Kawasaki Motors and the Super Bike Team, it was natural bigger things were waiting for Dave on the world stage of motor bikes, and he headed off overseas, achieving some outstanding results with race teams. These included a 1st place in the World Super Bike Championships with John Reynolds and Crescent Suzuki, in 2004, then followed with a 2nd for Yamaha and Noriyuka Haga in 2007, repeating the 2nd place for Australian Troy Corser 2008 in the World Super Bike Championships. More recently his focus was on the Great Britain Team, Front Row, finishing 13th in the 2009 Dakar Rally. During Dave’s 23 years in the industry, he has worked with a range of manufacturer's including Ducati, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and KTM Therefore, it won't matter if he is asked to do high performance engine and chassis tuning, track preparation, suspension tuning, motocross or enduro bikes, or a service on a jet ski, it would be pretty fair to say, he will be more than capable.
