As a division of the wider Triumph Motorcycles New Zealand group – which itself hosts much-loved brands including Triumph Motorcycles, Aprilia, Piaggio and Moto Guzzi – Euromoto benefits from the company’s strong link to many of New Zealand’s favourite dealerships.
As such, the NZ penetration and presence of the brand can only strengthen with the confirmation of Euromoto as the country’s new Beta distributor.
The intended dealer network is currently planned to remain a small core dealer network of seven (7) dealers, with a supporting service agent network of up to 15 dealerships. These will be confirmed over the coming months.
Not only that, Beta will be promoted digitally as Beta Motorcycles NZ with a soon to launch e-commerce website (to be found at betamotorcyclesnz.co.nz) which is currently being tailor-made for the brand.
Euromoto wishes to acknowledge the previous importers who have assisted to build a profile for Beta within NZ over the past years. As such, Euromoto would like to announce both Precision Motorbikes in Christchurch and NZ Trials in Kapiti as the first dealers of the new Beta dealership network.
We are very excited to be involved in the new era with Beta and the eventual launch of the all-new models for 2020, with the arrival date of the new metal looking to be around October 2019.
More information on the new models, the dealer and service agent networks will be announced soon on our new web platform.
