Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome joined Mityon Managing Director Burin Chantharakkankha and A.P. Honda Managing Director Jiaki Katoto to open the new retail center on Sukhumvit Road in South Pattaya March 3.
Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome, Mityon Managing Director Burin Chantharakkankha and A.P. Honda Managing Director Jiaki Katoto, along with managers and a model give their thumbs up to the new sales center.
Burin said Mityon’s third branch is the first on the Eastern Seaboard to accommodate big bike lovers from Thailand and foreign countries.
“Pattaya is a city with potential of continuous growth in big bike sales and the opening of Honda Big Wing Pattaya has received a better response than initially fathomed, with 10 bikes sold on opening day,” he said. “The big bike market will continue to increase and grow from the first year. The target is to sell 500 bikes this year since this is the first standard Honda big bike service center in the eastern region.”
Imported motorcycles have faced sales obstacles in Thailand due to the kingdom’s 30 percent excise tax on imported big bikes.
