Dealers sign on to carry wheelchair-accessible motorcycle

admin

Mobility Conquest has signed Ability Center locations in Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas and San Diego as non-stocking dealers of its wheelchair-accessible motorcycle.

The Conquest allows people who are physically disabled from the waist down to ride, using a chariot-like design. The design allows consumers in wheelchairs to enter the rear ramp of the motorcycle and go up the ramp, locking the chair in place behind the steering wheel. This bike was designed for consumers in wheelchairs with strong upper bodies but physically challenged from the waist down and is surprisingly powerful with a 1200 CC BMW engine and can go from 0 to 60 miles in 7.5 seconds.

The company started selling the product in the third quarter of 2010 and has been building its dealer network. Mobility Conquest is also working with a leading finance partner in the mobility industry to provide customers with a 60 month program to help pay for the bike, executives say.

“This product is another opportunity to a person with a disability the freedom to travel,” says corporate sales manager Chad Blake.

For those who live in the San Diego area, the Conquest will be on display Sept. 25 and 26 during the 13th annual Fleet Week Coronado Speed Festival, “The Race at the Base.”
