Hi, First, I gotta say sorry for anyone think this is non related thread and you are not interested in. I don't know where to post this to make it more "relevant". It's up to Moderator to decide to keep this thread or not. ------------------------------ As a BMW owner, I really want to see BMW Motorrad officially presents in Vietnam. Hopefully this thread may reach someone who can help to make it happens. Thru ADV and some other non-Vietnamese forums, I know that many people think that in Vietnam we only have scooters or very small cc motorcycle. Actually it is not true. We can own whatever motorcycle which we can buy or make. And there are many of big motorcycle in Vietnam, even in the past. Previously, there was biggest barrier which stopped many people from riding big motorcycle. It's license. A1 license for riding motorcycle below 175cc. A2 license for 175cc and above. It was very difficult to apply for A2, need lots of paperworks which not many people could effort. Last year, Vietnam Govt. revised the rule, now anyone can apply for A2, and so many people passed the exam and got the A2 easily. (You can follow this LINK for more detail, or my signature) I think some motorcycle brands they knew about that change and they started jumping in. First, it was Ducati. If I am not mistaken, they opened their Dealer in Vietnam around 2011-2012, and currently they have Dealers in Hanoi an Hochiminh City. Ducati owner community in Vietnam grows very fast. There are many Ducati clubs all around Vietnam, with all type of bike, from Monsters, Multistrada, Hypemotard/strada, 1098/1198/sp/1199 etc... Last year, KTM opened their Dealer chain here, while most of Vietnamese have no idea what is KTM. Now KTM have been opening many branches, from South to North of Vietnam, selling, servicing, etc... KTM comes into Vietnam and made it as really a big bang to Vietnam motorcycle market, with wide range of type and cc of motorcycles. Nov 2013, Harley opened its showroom in Hochiminh City, selling bike, stuff and services. They will open another one in Hanoi this year. I believe their revenue keeps increasing daily as I saw more and more Harley on the road very significantly. ... There is no BMW Motorrad dealer in Vietnam up to this moment. But actually there are several BMWs are on road, from some old school BMW, new F800GS/A, R1200GS/A, several R1200GS Water Cooled and even NineT ! They are all imported by "general" motorcycle importer/seller. And subsequently, there is NO proper motorcycle service from BMW. What we are doing now is using existing mechanic shops (which for all type of scooters and motorcycles), some we can do our own, or sometimes we had to cross the border, to go to nearest BMW which is in Thailand!!! Well, make it short, BMW please come to Vietnam, before we tired of improper servicing and switch to Ducati or KTM. Thank you.
