IRVINE, Calif. (October 14, 2013) – National Powersport Auctions (NPA), the industry leader in wholesale powersports vehicle remarketing, will debut its newest powersport auction segment NPA Black MarketTM during the trade days of the inaugural American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo). NPA Black MarketTM offers dealerships, retailers and service shops the opportunity to purchase non-current name brand powersport gear, accessories and parts in bulk through NPA’s online auction platform.
NPA Black MarketTM runs online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and offers thousands of products by top powersport brands. Available at www.npauctions.com, NPA Black MarketTM has already been a proven success for brands like Troy Lee Designs and Vance & Hines. NPA Black MarketTM offers over 250 lots of gear and accessories each month with new product being uploaded daily.
Accompanying the debut of NPA Black MarketTM, NPA will also host the NPA Auction lounge located in Room 305 A/B. Here dealers will be able to learn about the launch of NPA Black MarketTM along with being able to bid on NPA’s regularly scheduled live auctions in Cincinnati and Atlanta via NPA SimulcastTM. The lounge will be open to attendees during the first three days of the event, Wednesday to Friday, from 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. EDT. This exclusive area is a comfortable environment that ensures dealers won’t miss out on any NPA auctions while they are at the show. It is ideal for exploring what NPA has to offer and features free Wi-Fi, couches and chairs, and complimentary food and drink.
“AIMExpo offers NPA a tremendous opportunity to debut a business segment like NPA Black MarketTM among dealers as well as the attending trade media,” said Ryan Keefe, NPA Media Manager. “We look forward to welcoming dealers to our booth, and then to our Auction Lounge to experience one of our powersport auctions first hand while learning how NPA can enhance the profitability of their business.”
Larry Little, VP and GM of Marketplace Events Motorcycle Group added, “The education component for dealers is extremely important at AIMExpo, and we’re pleased that in addition to the learning opportunity at the lounge, dealers have a historic opportunity to engage with NPA and other industry leaders at the Industry Roundtable discussion in the Powering Profits track of the Powersports Business Institute@AIMExpo. We welcome Jim Woodruff of NPA, Sameer Gaur of GE Capital (wholesale financing), Brad Hagi of KTM, Matt Lekawa of Sheffield Financial (retail financing), and Mark Peterson of Southwest Superbikes.”
