Miami, FL, – October 15, 2009 – (Motor Sports Newswire ) – MRP and CMSI are pleased to announce to the US dealer base a new parts and aftermarket sales agreement between the two companies. Starting Mid November MRP will be taking over all OEM parts and Aftermarket distribution of parts for CMSI. The agreement allows MRP to expand its dealer base while helping CMSI dealers have a wider range of products and accessories.
“Given the recent economic downturn we felt we could better integrate and expand in a down market while working with specialists in the area of scooters” commented Tom Lynott president of CMSI Inc. Joel Martin of MRP continued “we felt working with CMSI made sense because the company will focus on importing units while we focus on the parts distribution unlike other buyouts or mergers we will operate as separate entities, but with the dealer in mind for the future.” Regarding the TNG brand Mr. Martin commented “The TNG product line isn’t the same as every other Chinese scooter, the company actually has many components which are unique and will only work on their branded models so it makes sense for us to work with TNG parts to solidify our place in the US market.”
CMSI currently markets and distributes a broad range of product brands including TNG (Twist n’ Go) and PM Tuning Racing Products as well Innovative Soft Storage Solutions. As part of the agreement MRP will be absorbing the parts distribution, PM Tuning USA, and the Soft Storage merchandise while CMSI focuses on the unit sales. “Looking forward to 2010 we feel that TNG has a great program for its distributors and dealers which will allow us to expand into a whole new range of dealerships, we also admire the work and effort TNG has made the past 15 years meaning it’s a brand we want to represent” further commented Martin.
Martin Racing Performance “MRP” has been selling aftermarket and OEM products to Scooter and Go Kart dealers in North America for the past 5 years. It is sold and distributed by over 1,000 retail and repair shops nationwide. For more information visit www.mrp-speeed.com
CMSI, Inc with headquarters near Seattle, Washington USA has been a leader the last 15 years in designing, distributing, manufacturing, marketing and supporting affordable, high value motor scooters in the United States. During assembly, CMSI’s employees constantly check for proper assembly, fit and finish. Once the assembly is complete, each scooter under goes a final PDI (Pre-Delivery inspection) in China, before it’s carefully packaged and shipped to the dealer. TNG is the ONLY brand on the market that performs PDI and road or dyno tests on 100% of its scooters by CMSI employees before shipping to dealers. New 2010 models will be announced in the coming months with support and parts coming from MRP. For more information visit www. tngscooters.com
Twist N’ Go (TNG) – This well recognized line of scooters is selectively distributed through a nationwide network of high quality, full service dealers. Models range from 50cc to 250cc. Plans to expand the range of product are in place for 2010 with new models and aftermarket support by MRP.
PM Tuning Racing Products – In 2005 CMSI entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with PM Tuning, Ltd. of Manchester, U.K. to supply their extensive line of scooter tuning and racing products to North, Central and South American markets. Founded in 1979, PM Tuning has developed performance enhancing products and systems in the U.K. MRP will be taking over the PM Tuning product importation and sales in the US.
Innovative Soft Storage – A complete storage line that includes; saddlebags, tail bags, tank bags, back packs, messenger bags, and carry bags will now be available from MRP.
MRP Racing Products – MRP will be integrating the TNG OEM parts, PM Tuning parts, and ISS products into its assembly and website which already includes the largest US assortment of OEM parts including unique parts for Malaguti Scooters, CF MOTO, Linhai, CPI of Taiwan, Loncin, MH, and many more.
Both CMSI and MRP will continue to operate independently. MRP plans on having on display new accessories and upgrades for new 2010 TNG models at the Indiana Dealer Expo www.DealerExpo.com in Feb 2010. More on the agreement will be made available to the dealers and distributors before the annual Indy Show Meeting.
