It has been in and around our showroom since 1988, last seen languishing on our mezzanine, a 1966 Triumph Tiger 100, just 2 owners from new. When we got it down at Christmas we fitted a battery, a litre of petrol in the tank - first kick it fired - second it ran.  We have had to do quite a bit of work new tyres and tubes sort out a few oil weeps a couple of carburettor parts etc. I commuted on it this morning - and its lovely.

Yes we are taking orders now.....lThe 2017 Aprilia V4's should be arriving ready for a " 17 " Plate on Wednesday March 1st. Priced at £19,999 for the RSV4 RF and £15,999 for the Tuono Factory. The 2016 bikes were mind blowing, the 2017 bikes with lots of engine tweaks, a host of new electronics including a brand new colour TFT instruments, pit lane limiter ( ideal for sticking to 30mph speed limits) cruise control, downshift blipper, new suspension - the list goes on and on. I really am looking forward to getting out on these bikes. We will have demo bikes so call us on 01243 782544 and book your test ride, you will be truly impressed.

Quite a lot has changed during the last 70 years, but our love of motorcycles is as strong today as it has ever been. To celebrate this amazing milestone we will have some exciting offers over the coming months, starting in March. We are hoping you will help us celebrate - so watch out for news of our special offers.finishedone

The new March 1st 17 Plate is coming up fast and we still have some amzing offers so give us a call on 01243 782544 and pick up a bargain while we still have stock !!!

GSX R1000 1


The incredible 2017 GSXR1000 is priced at just £13,386 on the road, compare this to the 2017 Honda Fireblade and Yamaha R1 -both these bikes will be over £15K. Dont delay the first shipment due in March is selling fast and the price will most likely go up in April or May - you have been warned.

Interest in the 2017 Aprilia RSV4 RF and Tuono Factory is also beginning to take off, we are hoping first deliveries will be in Early March. Both models look similar to the 2016 bikes but are very very different. New electronics and massive engine and suspension upgrades will make these bikes a force to be reckoned with.

We are taking deposits now for the whole crop of 2017 bikes, Royal Enfield Himilayan's, Moto Guzzi V7Mk3, Aprilia Tuono and RSV4 RF, Suzuki Vstroms and GSX-S750 ( due in march ) and of coures the Brand NEW FOR 2017 all conquering GSXR1000. So give Chris a call on 01243 782544 for more information.


The incredible 2017 Suzuki GSXR1000 priced at only £13,386.00 Available March. Price might go up in April / May Call us on 01243 782544 and reserve your new Suzuki Now...

I keep saying it and the truth is,  right now is a very good time to buy your new bike for 2017. Suzuki have hinted on further price rises in both March and May. If you look at their price list there are a lot of prices to be announced and those that have been listed could very likely change in the wrong direction after initial deliveries. Aprilia and Moto Guzzi have announced 2017 prices and again these are still subject to change. Remember as new prices go up so the used bikes follow suit, yes it helps if you want to part exchange, but the gap will only get bigger. We have a few pre registered new Suzuki's at low prices but they are going fast. 2016 Royal Enfields that are only a little cheaper and don't have the added complexity of the 2017 models. We have good stocks of Moto Guzzi V7 and V9 with pretty stonking offers on them. Call in and have a chat you might be pleasantly surprised.  I can assure you buying now will be a very prudent thing to do. Yes 2017 models will be better, are they worth the extra cost- I leave that with you.

The new GSX-S750 Suzuki £7,736 on the road if you order now - How much in June ???

Yes we know it tried to snow last Thursday and its still mighty cold outside. The good news is we are only 6 weeks away from March and the new 17 registration plate. The year is flashing past already, and you dont have to be a rocket scientist to notice their are quite a few bargains floating around at the moment. As always prices start to rise as the weather gets better, suddenly it will be the middle of March and all the bargains will be gone. Even new models like the amazing new GSXR1000 are getting short and soon you will be looking June delivery, all the first shipment will be sold. The answer is to seriously think about what you want to do this Spring and Summer. At present we have a good range of very well priced bikes, some very spectacular deals on New but pre Registered Suzuki's only a few non Euro 4 Royal Enfields these are the simple traditional non ABS bikes, a good stock of 2016 V7 Moto Guzzi's that are £1000 cheeper than the 2017 model, and a very good selection of used bikes. 2017 will see some considerable price rises as the year progresses. All I can say is get in now while we have such well priced stock. Prices could be as much as 10% higher for many 2017 models, and this and the usual Spring shortage of used bikes will drag up prices accross the board.


The new 2017 GSXR1000 already selling very well, first deliveries late march 2017.

We have some amazing offers on Moto Guzzi eg : This immaculate V9 Roamer has done just 605 miles and is priced at £6,850.00, the curent new price is £8,699.00. That is a saving of £1,849.00. We also have a V9 Bobber with 1084 miles priced at just £7,195.00. These bikes will not be around for long, another few weeks and everything will get going. March 1st is 6 weeks away the new 17 registration will be out before you know it and we have lots of amazing offers on Moto Guzzi and Suzuki - New Pre registered and Brand new as well as some used bargains, but they will all be gone very soon, so come down and see us and save yourself ££££££.

I cannot believe it yet more rail strikes. More people inconvenienced, more chaos. Why rely on a service that barely exists, just how much inconvenience must you have before you think " There Must Be A Better Way". There is an economical and convenient way to commute and generally get about, it goes from your door to your destination. It does not cause traffic jams, and it certainly will never "strike" . Powered two wheelers have to be the future, with super scooters that will cruise at the maximum speed limit and offer amazing weather protection to Motorcycles with heated grips and seats commuting on two wheels does not have to be cold and uncomfortable. Traffic Jams - you can slide through them like butter, there is a better way and we have the answers so give us a call - dont get held to ransom - regain your independance. Call 01243 782544 - You Know it Makes Sense !!


Royal Enfield have truly excelled, the new Euro 4 Compliant Classic 500 looks very neat. The bike just looks well thought out - yes it is a bit more technical it now has ABS and emissions have been reduced, but you have to look hard, and for 2017 it now comes with a Pillion seat. With only a £200 price hike it is still tremendous value for money at only £4,699 on the road.Rearbrake

Look how neat and tidy the rear disc brake has been incorporated.

We still have a few brand new unregistered 2016 models that are not quite as complex and a bit more traditional. If the thought of all this extra technology over complicates the reason for having a Royal Enfield give Chris a call on 01243 782544 and he can tell you how he can help... remember we only have a few left !!

Suzuki have discovered through its rigorous product testing a problem that can affect the battery charging on certain Vstrom 650's from 2012 model year. This just proves how thorough Suzuki are, we have never come accross this problem before and most likely never will,  Suzuki have discovered a potential problem and that means replacing the "Stator Coils" on affected bikes. This will be done under warranty at no cost, letters will be coming out soon to bikes that are covered by this "Recall". If in doubt call on 01243 782544 or Mail Alex or Tanya with your chassis number and they will tell you if your bike needs to be repaired. Suzuki really do try very hard to ensure their products are the best if they discover any problem they get it sorted as a matter of urgency. 


DL650 models from 2012 are being recalled due to a stator fault call us on 01243 782544 fo more information
