Ducati opens dealership in Pune
Ducati has partnered with Bavaria Motors, one of Pune’s prominent automotive groups, to start a dealership in Pune at Bund Garden road as part of its network expansion in major metros for 2016. This is Ducati’s fifth dealership in the country. Ducati already has dealerships in Delhi, Mumbai, Gurgaon and Bangalore.
The full fledged dealership will sell the entire range of Ducati bikes sold in India. Situated over a 45,000 sq ft area, the dealership also has a service centre attached and that’s good news for the current Ducati owners in Pune who earlier had to send their bikes to Mumbai for service. This is a 3S facility which houses sales, service and spares under one roof.
Apart from bikes, the dealership will also sell merchandise, apparel and motorcycle accessories. On the occasion of the launch, Ravi Avalur, MD, Ducati India and Vishal Agarwal, MD, Bavaria Motors presented the first three customers of the Pune dealership, the keys to their new bikes – a Scrambler, Monster 821 and Diavel.
Speaking on the occasion, Ravi Avalur said: “Pune and its neighboring cities have some of the most passionate motorcyclists in the country and we are keen to bring to them a taste of the Authentic Italian Performance that Ducati offers. We believe our partnership with Bavaria Motors will help us deliver to the city a customer ownership experience that is consistent with our global standards.”
Also present at the launch, Vishal Agarwal said: “We are delighted to partner with Ducati and bring the iconic brand to a region so passionate about motorcycles. Even before we started operations we have been overwhelmed with inquiries. With our experience in successfully working with premium clients in the luxury automobile sector, we will provide an unparalleled level of customer experience and service to the growing community of Ducatisti in Pune.”
