Last year November 2018, Savic Motorcycles (Australia) has unveiled their electric cafe racer at the Melbourne Motorcycle Expo. Today, we publish their own story (in their own words) with their vision about the future. EMN wishes Dennis Savic all the luck he can get in this exciting electric world.
Source: website Savic Motorcycles | A new transportation revolution is here, and it’s in its early stages. Electric vehicles are entering automotive markets at an increasing rate with the large automotive companies planning to release new electric vehicles in the coming years. In addition to the existing manufacturers of motorcycles, new companies are also forming every year to compete in the emerging industry. But this is not the first time that such market growth has unveiled itself over time. It’s a historical event that has begun to repeat itself.
Dennis Savic: “Motorcycling isn’t about going from A to B, and it isn’t about being a cheap mode of transportation, although it is both these things. Motorcycling is about being seen, it’s about personal expression, who you are, and who you want to be. When people are asked, what type of motorcycle they would like to ride, most don’t reply with a model, they typically reply, “a Kawasaki, a Honda, a Ducati, a Harley”, etc. It’s what a brand represents and how a bike looks that truly resonates with a rider.”
Savic Motorcycles represents the new generation. It represents change, unwavering vision, and drive to be great. The Savic Motorcycles brand serves to inspire the coming generations that look forward, that believe they can achieve the unimaginable, and are willing to put in the hard work required to succeed and make an impact in the world. The reason why Savic Motorcycles has the ability to position itself with such a brand image, is that the founder IS one of these people.
The future is NOW. And it’s ELECTRIC.
By the age of 26, the founder had a career in Oil and Gas, completed an MBA, and built what was the beginning of Savic Motorcycles. He represents and IS the new generation of professionals, who work persistently for a vision and what they believe in, and to do it in style.
But a company is not just a product, and a brand. It needs a strong management team, and a common vision facilitated by multiple strategies. Our management team comprises of like-minded individuals, who all possess the personalities and resumes required to shape the strongest of organisational cultures. Supported by a diverse board of directors, who also share the values of the company.
With the team that we’ve built, we have absolutely no doubt that we’ll be able to deliver on everything we plan to, and more.
