A New Motorcycle Resource For New Zealand

A New Motorcycle Resource For New Zealand

SYDNEY, March. 15 /Medianet International-AsiaNet/ --

Red Book, the people who provide identification and pricing information for motor vehicles in New Zealand, have extended their operations to now include a most comprehensive database on motorcycles.

The database is accessed over the internet and has been developed after very extensive research. It contains detailed information on new and used motorcycles in New Zealand with models covered as far back as 1986.

The information includes new prices, used prices (both wholesale and retail) and identification details. In other countries, this data is heavily relied on by the insurance and finance industries as well as the motorcycle dealers and Government departments.

This service has not been available in New Zealand previously and no one has ever collected such extensive or detailed information before.

Speaking at the launch of the motorcycle product today, Richard Reid, Red Book’s general manager for New Zealand, said: “We know this database service will be of great value. It’s a service that acts as a check on fair trading as many companies will rely on it as a benchmark to effectively run their businesses.

"Universally, these companies have told us that the new service is long overdue. We have spent much time and resources and have been very pedantic and know that what we have produced is of a very high standard."

With the release of its motorcycles database, Red Book also confirmed today that it will be covering a full range of bikes – covering the high speed road versions, sport and recreational bikes, the farm quad bikes and commuter scooters.

Reid also made the point: "some information – but not the used values - is provided to consumers free on our website – The used values information is only available to our commercial clients who pay a fee."
