Suzuki has honored Bert’s Mega Mall, a family-owned dealership in Covina, Calif., for being the world’s top-selling GSX-R dealership since the line was introduced internationally in 1985.
Bert’s has sold more than 4,500 GSX-Rs since the models first hit U.S. showrooms in 1986. For this achievement, Bert’s Mega Mall owner Ron Seidner received an award from Suzuki senior national sales manager Rod Lopusnak at the Suzuki annual dealer meeting in Las Vegas in early November. The award announcement coincided with the unveiling of the 2013 GSX-R1000 1 Million Commemorative Edition, a limited-edition model commemorating the 1 millionth GSX-R produced since 1985.
“When Suzuki developed the amazing 2013 GSX-R1000 1 Million Commemorative Edition model, I was excited to dig in and see which dealer retailed the most GSX-R models in our history,” Lopusnak said. “When I actually saw that Bert's Mega Mall retailed over 4,500 GSX-Rs since 1986, I was simply amazed. Bert’s Mega Mall owner Ron Seidner and his staff are incredible and a huge asset to our customers, Suzuki and the entire powersports industry!”
“Bert’s Mega Mall has been selling the GSX-R line since 1986 and it has been a huge success for our company,” Seidner added. “We have been extremely excited to be a part of the growth this bike has brought to everybody over the years.”
