Why did you choose to work in the motorcycle industry?
Because I want to spend my time in what I am most passionate about

It needs to satisfy a new and different generation which look at and use motorcycles in a different way. This new generation will probably use the bike as a personal expression and every day transport at the same time. New riders want to own and ride something different to everyone else without paying a premium.
