On Saturday 4 August 2018 we held a massive event, celebrating the grand opening of our Ducati showroom. A big day in the planning, we had loads of activities and special guests to kick off our long future with the Ducati brand.
A host of guests, including Italian factory VIP’s and Ducati Australia/NZ management, D-A-R-E Motorcycle Training, Ducati Owner’s Club of Queensland were present. Catering with the big smoker thanks to Pattemore’s Meats at Alexandra Hills kept everyone fed along with pizza’s and Tony’s Cafe which had the biggest trading day in years. A MotoGP arcade game available for free to play had great mates become enemies on the digital track, competing to get first on the leaderboard.
The biggest part of the day was the test rides. A host of Ducati motorcycles to sample were available, from the newest Panigale V4 S to Scrambler 1100, to Mutlistrada 1260 S and everything in between. Some great feedback for us and Ducati, and many great stories for riders to share on their next ride.
The day was extremely successful, with credit to everyone involved in making the momentous day progress from the early start in the morning to the extended closing time to let those with busy Saturday plans have a chance to swing by.
Now we’re open for Ducati officially, we have become the latest store in the Brisbane region to represent the Italian brand, with our showroom now fitted out to global Ducati standards. All materials including the walls are from Europe, even the Ducati lightbox, so a very controlled environment meaning for you, our customer, the best and a trust you can place with your Ducati that the factory are in control of the quality and training that you expect.
From new bikes, both current generation and runout models when available, to apparel, riderwear, bolt-on accessories, to genuine spares for new and older models, to factory-backed servicing and warranty repairs, to tyres, insurance, finance, Dyno tuning and of course, like every Ducati showroom should have, Tony’s Cafe for well-priced breakfast, lunch, treats and Merlo Coffee.
We hope to see you soon to experience what over a year’s of planning has resulted – Motorcycles R Us now being your Ducati dealer, still under the ownership of Tony Armstrong and his team.
