Beta Canada is taking over distribution and importation of Beta motorcycles.
This deal, which was in the works for a while, means Stephen Howland and company will take over from Mountain Motorcycle, the longtime go-to guys for Beta’s dual sports, trail bikes and trials machines. Mountain Motorcycle will still be a Beta dealer, though.
Read the official press release below, and see our review of the Beta 498 RR here.
On November 1, 2014, Mountain Motorcycle Ltd will no longer be the importer/distributor for Betamotor S.p.A in Canada.
The new importer/distributor will be Beta Canada Inc, with Stephen Howland as president of the new company. We are pleased to have found such an enthusiastic and driven person as Stephen to take over as importer/distributor for Beta in Canada.
Mountain Motorcycle Ltd will continue on as the Beta dealer for the Lower Mainland of BC, and will assist Beta Canada Inc by providing technical assistance and parts knowledge ongoing.
2014 marked the thirty-first model year since Mountain Motorcycle Ltd began importing Beta motorcycles. It has been our great pleasure to have been the importer/distributor all these years.
Please note that nothing will change for our retail customers, it is business as usual.
Bob Clark, President
