Demo bikes available for booked test rides

With the easing of Covid restrictions, the showroom is now open again, so we can welcome customers back to the dealership, and our demo bikes are now available for test rides.

Our fleet is back on the road but we’ll have to be sensible and responsible to keep the bikes clean and customers safe.

Unfortunately, we’re still not in a position where customers can just turn up at the dealership and take out a demonstrator.

Instead, we’re operating pre-booked appointments for demo bikes. Just call us on 01473 257401 or email to tell us what bike you want to ride so we can book a convenient time.

Sales manager Mark Trench: “Please book ahead if you’re interested in a particular motorbike, and want to ride our demo model, so we can have it prepared and ready to go.

“You can then have a one-to-one appointment with a member of the sales team.

“After each ride we need to clean and sanitise the bike, to keep staff and customers safe. Booked appointments give us the time to do that and save people having to wait.”

Our fleet of demonstrators is being added to but currently includes:

  • KTM 390 Adventure
  • KTM 790 Adventure
  • KTM 890 Adventure
  • KTM 390 Duke
  • KTM 890 Duke
  • KTM 890 Duke R
  • KTM 690 SMC R
  • KTM 1290 Super Duke R
  • KTM 1290 Super Duke GT
  • KTM 1290 Super Adventure S
  • Kawasaki Ninja 650
  • Kawasaki Z900
  • Kawasaki Versys 1000
  • Kawasaki Vulcan S
  • Suzuki Katana
  • Suzuki DL650 V-Strom
  • Suzuki DL1050XT V-Strom

Director Dave Willis said: “Until now we could only let people have a demo bike if they were almost at the point of buying and had paid a deposit.

“That was the only way we could let people out on demo bikes, and very few people took a test ride.

“The lifting of those restrictions is a big improvement.”
