Moto One Closing Down?

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' started by LadyYamaha, Oct 15, 2008.

  1. Heard this on the grapevine, apparently within a week! Anyone heard anything further?

  2. Been reading about this for some time on advrider.com - it seems that the downfall has been BMW and then Ducati setting up their own factory dealerships. My Dad bought a bike from them about 8 years ago and they were certainly enthusiasts.
  3. Ducati opened their store well after Moto One lost their franchise. BMW have had a city dealership for some time too.

    Aside from the loss of employment for the individuals and the sadness and impact on them, I now have the choice of A1 Ringwood, or A1 Brighton for service. Wonderful.
  4. Heard on another grapevine that there may soon be a dealer for BMW a lot closer to you than Oakleigh.

    And they had an aprilia in their workshop yesterday.
    Think foothills.
  5. It's a pity that moto one is going.
    Southbank BMW have lost their way.
    I went in to buy a H7 headlight lamp for my S and they wanted $24
    I told him I could get it for half that at any auto outlet and servo
    He just shrugged and took it away again as if I was invisible.
    What a coCKhead.
    Way to LOSE business.
  6. Yes it is true.
  7. Well that sucks, but they were in a spot that was hard to get to for a lot of people.
  8. Its a bit sad to read this. I liked the people at Moto One and spent a fair bit of my budget there.
  9. premises of Moto One is closed and vacant.

    Pity - only bike shop anywhere near Oakleigh.
  10. Not so! True Local lists 2 others!
