Autodata has launched a new CD based information resource, exclusively for Motorcycle workshops. The CD contains the vital technical information for virtually every model of motorcycle and ATVs, produced between 1989 and 2005.
All of the featured models are meticulously covered with over 100 lines of service and repair data for each bike. The information on the CD is researched from the Motorcycle Manufacturers information but is all authored by Autodata and presented in their unique concise style.
In addition to the technical data the CD provides the facility to estimate repair times with 400 inclusive warranty times per model. The estimator facility allows the workshop to estimate a job more accurately, saving time and money. The estimator allows the user to adjust times, enter their own labour rate, address and logo to present customers with a professional printed estimate for work, which can also be saved. 
Autodata Managing Director Tony Swiatek commented:
"After the success of our CDs for the four wheeled market we decided to develop this version specifically for the motorcycle workshop. The CD gives the user rapid access to up to date and accurate information that will save the workshop time and therefore money. Users of our other CD products are always telling us that the CD has become invaluable to their business and we are sure that motorcycle garages will find the same once they have experienced the benefits."
Autodata Technical Data and Repair Times Estimator for Motorcycles is an annual subscription based service at just £69.00 + VAT. It is available from Trade suppliers or direct from Autodata on 0845 607 7072.
