I'm just starting to come up for air here.
It's been a busy couple of months and it doesn't seem to be letting up.
AND then I came into work to 100+ Russian spammers who decided to flood the forums - grrrrrrrrr.
So go ahead and ask away about the RoverAT or anything else. I'll do my best to monitor this discussion and answer your questions as well and as much as I can <wink>.
But suffice it to say this will be a very big summer of new products for us. The AT is just the start, and some will prolly be a little less 'ground breaking' as others but we do have some BIG things coming as well. I can't wait to share them.
Just a little FYI on the reason we've been quiet over the last year.
In the past we would announce new products when we were assured that the final prototype was correct and we had PO's placed. We'd announce it to the public (and dealers) with a price and in store date and start taking pre-orders.
Then there would be a delay in production or a small tweak in design that would result in a delay and/or price change. This not only frustrated us to no end, but also the consumers and our dealers. Although it was nothing we could have planned, I believe it eroded our trust and reputation.
Therefore we made a decision over a year ago that we would not announce nor release a new product until it was literally here or 'on the water'. You can imagine how difficult this is on our end to plan ahead for printing, marketing, dealer stocking, programs...etc. but we felt it was essential in restoring that trust and not leaving everyone hanging.
So while everyone has been contemplating the demise of TerraTrike over the last year because we haven't had a new product release, we've been finalizing several things so that when we announce it - boom - it's READY and IN STOCK with a well thought out and executed marketing plan.
Oh and BTW, last year was our 2nd best year ever and this years first quarter is THE BEST we've ever had. 2017 is shaping up to be a great year for us. So relax. We aren't going anywhere but up
So whatta ya all want to know?
