Hamil­ton firm Har­ley’s Aus­tralasian Dealer of the Year

Motor Equipment News - - OEM -

Har­ley-David­son Aus­tralia and New Zea­land has an­nounced Road and Sport Mo­tor­cy­cles as Dealer of the Year 2017. The Hamil­ton-based deal­er­ship, owned and op­er­ated by Barry and Shel­ley Sproule, was awarded the pres­ti­gious award at the Har­ley-David­son na­tional dealer meet­ing held in Can­berra in De­cem­ber.

Road and Sport Mo­tor­cy­cles was es­tab­lished in 1978 in Hamil­ton and has been a Har­ley-David­son dealer for the last 28 years.

Waikato’s only, and New Zea­land’s old­est, Har­ley-David­son deal­er­ship has won a num­ber of awards over the years. This win was even sweeter for the deal­er­ship as the change in the awards since 2015 has all 52 Aus­tralian and New Zea­land deal­er­ships vy­ing for the one ti­tle.

Dealer prin­ci­pal Barry Sproule said: “This is a big win and we are very thank­ful for our loyal cus­tomers. As a fam­ily owned and op­er­ated Har­leyDavid­son deal­er­ship, the fo­cus is on yesteryears cus­tomer ser­vice val­ues, where cus­tomers to the deal­er­ship are made to feel ap­pre­ci­ated and re­spected.

“The Road and Sport team is ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing a great ex­pe­ri­ence to all our cus­tomers. We aim to go be­yond ex­pec­ta­tions that come with own­ing a Har­ley-David­son mo­tor­cy­cle and the life­style that it is known for.”

Along­side the dealer of the year, the run­ner ups were Gold Coast Har­leyDavid­son, Gee­long Har­ley-David­son and Hor­sham Har­ley-David­son.

The Dealer of the Year awards of­fi­cially ac­knowl­edges ex­cel­lence across all ar­eas of deal­er­ship oper­a­tions in the Road to Ex­cel­lence Pro­gramme. Deal­ers are as­sessed against a strict busi­ness cri­te­ria, in­clud­ing cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion and com­mit­ment to train­ing.
