Sacramento Vectrix (Roseville) no more...
Roseville Cycle Center was the Vectrix dealership/service for the Sacramento area, but I just called them to see what they knew about the 'New Vectrix' Gold Peak Batteries situation. I talked to 'Derick' in the Service department - he said that they severed all ties with Vectrix when they filed for bankruptcy and they have no plans to renew any agreement with (New) Vectrix.
Too bad... I was hoping I could go there for my Li-ion upgrade!
Does anybody know who is the new US Vectrix dealer? Is vectrix planning to keep on selling vectrix in the US?
Some of the motorcycle dealers that were selling them before will continue to sell the 'New Vectrix' - I talked to someone named 'Don' (via emial) at the dealership in S.F. (Scuderia) and he said the he has a meeting with the "new owners" on Monday.
This is a good sign! Brace for more good news :-)
I bought my Vectrix at Roseville Cycle Center and live about 15 miles north from there. They served me well a few times on minor matters, but I didn't know they had 'defected'. Too bad...
BTW, please let me know if you live in the Greater Sacto Area.
I live in Stockton - I bought my Vectrix at the BMW dealer in San Rafael (before Roseville Cycle Center were selling the Vectrix). I haven't called them to see what their plans are - I had a terrible experience with them and wouldn't bring them any more business anyway.
How far south have you ridden? I rode to Elk Grove a couple weekends ago, just for the hell of it (topped off the batteries in Galt). There used to be a charging station at the auto mall in Elk Grove, according to http://www.evchargermaps.com/ and another one at Lowes, have you been there?
The San Francisco Vectrix dealer (Suderia) talked with the new owners of Vectrix last Monday, this is the email I received:
The meeting went well but not a lot to share just yet. They should be deciding the U.S. structuring in the next few weeks. More news then.
I will share more info as I receive it :-)
Thanks for keeping us posted... Hope the V's USA dealer strikes again!
look on the bright side if there is any little niggels that go wrong in the icy conditions or its just poring with rain its garaged...
