Local Guzzi Dealer

Does anyone know if Zen-Moto is going out of business? It would seem strange to have 2 Guzzi Dealers in or around Marietta.

Someday, I'll get this post right.

I was told the other day that Zen Moto is no longer. This news came right on the heels of Moto Brittalia acquiring Guzzi. I was just wondering if it was true. Zen Moto always had a neat array of consignment bikes. Bimota, Ducati, Guzzi, MZ, the list literally went on.

Looks like gentrification has claimed Zen Moto. What once was a darkish, bike filled and somewhat chaotic looking store is now empty, the walls being painted white tonight, and a brand new Mini Cooper parked square across the front door, the paranoid owner wanting to keep an eye on his new jewel.

Don't know if Zen's out of business, but they are out of their old quarters.

Sounds from here that they're becoming a Mini dealership ...

i dont think that there are any independent bmw dealerships, all associated with a larger BMW one. there is a speed shop that specializes in tuning miatas, so they migh talso be branching outto th enew mini as well.

Nah, the place is too small to sell cars. It was just the guy's personal, new and beloved possession. If the car were big enough, he'd take two spaces in a parking lot. That kind of guy. New car love.
