As the curve of COVID-19 cases flattens in recent days, KTM Philippines officially announced today’s reopening of 12 of its dealerships, not only in Luzon but in other parts of the country where this health menace has started to ease up.
Always moving forward, the company has come up with new protocols with the help of experts on dealership transactions and motorcycle maintenance and repair requirements. We will elaborate on these in our next article.
KTM Philippines announced on social media that it is also ready to answer inquiries and accept reservations for those interested in purchasing any of their motorcycle models, but these will have to be done online.
Also, KTM owners who will need preventive maintenance and repair for their motorbikes have to set an appointment first before showing up in the dealerships with their units. To avoid congestion, the first come, first served policy shall be observed.
As an additional incentive, KTM Philippines is offering a P10,000 discount for a brand-new KTM 390 Duke, for both first- and second-generation models. The promo is good only until June 30, 2020.
Here is the list of 12 dealerships which start to reopen today:
Luzon area – Naga City (service only), San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte (service only), and Vigan City
Visayas – Tacloban City
Mindanao – Butuan, Cagayan de Oro City (Blip Motors, Inc. and Norminring Development Corp.), Dipolog, Kidapawan, Surigao, Siargao (service only), and Valencia.
Another 28 KTM dealerships are set to open on May 16, nine of them—including the main showroom at Bonifacio Global City—are in Metro Manila.
This only shows that things are starting to move for the key players in the motorcycle industry under the so-called new normal. Which motorcycle companies are ready with their new set of protocols for dealership transactions? We will see in the coming days.
