New Indian Motorcycle Dealership Set to Open in San Diego Under New Ownership
San Diego, CA, May 2018 – The iconic Indian Motorcycle brand is back in San Diego under new ownership and location, with a dedication to bringing a new and unique consumer-first focus and experience to the power sports industry. The more than 7,000 square foot dealership is slated to open in late May or early June of this year and the “Experience Center” is located at 9240 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, San Diego 92123.
Business owner Tim Broadhead, spent months focused on creating a customer-centric business plan that was aimed at creating a first-class and customer-first model that would provide customers with an amazing experience and create a lifetime memory for them, coupled with creating an emotional connection with the brand and dealership.
“As a consumer in the power sports industry, I always felt like a transaction to the dealerships I visited or transacted with. There was little effort to get to know me, my riding style, experience level, or anything that would be important to ensure that the product I was purchasing was the right one for me. It was always a push to get me on the most expensive bike, load me up with a lot of parts and apparel, and then I would never hear from them again outside of the canned flyers in the mail that everyone receives. From this experience, the idea to help change the industry to a consumer-first mindset was set into motion.
“From the moment you enter our consumer-led showroom, you will realize that the experience is a unique one, one that is 100% dedicated to serving our customers and creating a long-term relationship, while working to exceed their expectations at every aspect. Whether they are a seasoned rider, a first-timer, or maybe not sure what level they are, customers can come in and sit down with our team and together we will craft a goal that will bring the amazing experience of owning an Indian Motorcycle to life for them” says owner Tim Broadhead.
In addition to Indian Motorcycle sales, the dealership will offer a wide variety of products and services such as pre-owned motorcycles; service for all makes and models; parts, apparel, and accessories. “One of our top goals is that we want the experience to become a special one for the consumer, but also become a destination that is more than just a shopping experience for them, but more like a second home to them. Whether it is our community and friendly feel; the family-friendly atmosphere; or the fun and constant entertainment and events; our customer experience in-store will always be a special one and we hope our customers will be regular visitors that will enjoy each other’s, and our staff’s time together” says owner Tim Broadhead.
With the many years of experience, reputation, and high-performance execution by the local design and construction firms of RBN Design and Burger Construction, the vision and dreams of Tim came to life and the dealership will open in the second quarter of 2018.
