Business Profile

The company is an extremely well established and highly reputable motorcycle dealership in south-eastern England.  As well as selling motorcycles the business has become a destination for bikers, able to cater to any of their needs, including:  new bike sales of the world’s top brands; used bike sales of every make and model; impeccable motorcycle service and repair, including MOT; parts, new and aftermarket; clothing and accessories; financing and warranties; and most recently, motorcycle training.  On the operations side, the business is equally impressive, having procured territorial franchises from brand leading names  and partnering with retail financing companies to provide financing to consumers and with some of top trade financing institutions worldwide, to fund working capital and inventory, and building up the premises to showcase all of its stock and better service bikes.  This is a very rare opportunity to purchase an iconic business with excellent historic reputation and extensive potential.

• Recently completed construction of new a 2-floor showroom building
• Staff composed of experienced and dedicated industry professionals
• Substantial, well-designed and scalable web presence
• Numerous avenues for expansion, easily fuelled by increased marketing
