MBUSI is a great place to work. The environment is very modern and with its open door policy it makes working there that much better. “The Best Or Nothing”

You will be surprised at how interesting this tour is. We were surprised at the robots involved in building these great cars. Book your tour early as space is limited and tours fill up very fast.

Cars and​ motorcycles from the beginning til present day are on the showroom. Amazing features are noted at each vehicle. Clean, refreshing atmosphere. Receptionist knew nothing and was not all that nice.
