Champion: How has this new project affected your passion for riding?
Vincent: It is such a great pleasure to be able to pass on my experience and knowledge to other bikers. Of course, this business is new for me, and it sometimes gets exhausting or intense, but I also find it extremely interesting!
I channelled all my courage, motivation and commitment into this new project. The store now has 8 employees and we have made great progress in a very short period of time. In fact, we just became a Royale Enfield, Mash and Hyosung dealer. We have a lot of promising projects on the horizon!
Champion: What do you think about Champion’s support and being a Champion ambassador?
Vincent: As a racer, I am immediately drawn to excellence and dynamism, the promise of new and exciting challenges. This passion that I have fits perfectly with Champion and the things I value as a motorcyclist – it is an exciting brand!
In that sense, it actually feels natural and genuine to work with Champion and sell its products, because it means something on a personal level.
Champion: What are the current trends in the bike world and expectations from the riders?
Vincent: On the track, riders and motorcycles seem to go faster and faster. The level of performance is extremely high, and each millisecond is important. On the street, the performance of modern bikes is simply incredible. In these demanding conditions, you need products that you can trust, and Champion’s high-end range is great for such applications.
Alongside those with high-performance track and street machines, we also have touring and cruising riders, as well as riders who use a motorcycle as their main form of transportation. Regardless of how you enjoy or use your bike, Champion has products for all types of riders and motorcycles. As a shop owner, this is important because I want to cater to many different preferences and riding lifestyles.
