Davao riders will get their own standalone BMW Motorrad showroom as SMC Asia Car Distributors Corporation (SMCACDC) began groundbreaking recently. The new motorcycle-only 10-storey dealership will rise along Buhangin Avenue on a 1,200 square meter lot.
The facility was put up by Wilson Lu and Alexander Roleda of BMW Bacolod. Naturally, the showroom will also be equipped with a high-tech service area, capable of diagnostics and repairs of even the most complicated models. Once up and running, it will showcase and make available the entire model lineup beginning with the G310 series all the way up to the R1200 GS Adventure and R 1000 RR.
This is the first standalone Motorrad dealership in BMW’s 15-year history in the country. However, more will soon follow as a result of the rapid growth of the motorcycle industry.
Present at the event were outgoing SMCACDC president, Maricar Parco; incoming SMCACDC president, Spencer Yu; and BMW Motorrad director, Gil Balderas.
