Innovation and hard work has seen Taz Motorcycles collect the prestigious accolade of Best Performing European Dealer 2008 for Aprilia Motorcycles.

The award was presented to Neil Steen, Managing Director at the Aprilia Awards held in Sepang on 19th October.

Already established as an Elite Aprilia Dealership in the UK, Taz has continued to be innovative in its marketing campaigns and in-store activity, which has resulted in a substantial sales increase in Aprilia Sales in 2008.

Neil commented, "In a tough market place we have always tried to do something different and to go that extra step to ensure that our customers get the best possible deal. It is great that Aprilia has recognised this and we are extremely proud to receive this trophy. The whole team at Taz has worked extremely hard in the last few years and it is fantastic for them to receive this recognition.

"The range of bikes from Aprilia in 2008 has been fantastic and they have really appealed to our customers, which helps us tremendously. The 2009 range looks to be even stronger and the reaction on the all new RSV4 is very encouraging, so we are looking forward to the future.

"The award will not mean that we will rest on our laurels. We have exciting plans for 2009 to take Taz into its next phase of development."
