We’ve just taken in this head turner…..2009 Honda CB1000R

Honda CB1000R-1

It’s in excellent condition with 9,250 miles on the clock and service history.  It further benefits from a HISS alarm system, BOS exhaust, R&G tail tidy and a tinted screen.  This unusual colour scheme really suits it’s styling.

The CB1000R is wonderfully styled with a beautiful single sided swingarm, flash LCD clocks and both paintwork and metal finishes are of excellent quality.  The suspension provides feel and comfort while the engine provides suitable torque and midrange.  This is a real head turner of a bike.


What A Week…and its only Tuesday!

Well its only Tuesday and the workshop is busy busy!

We have a Kawasaki ZX6 in for a pair of new tyres, A Ducati S4RS in for a service and a rear shock rebuild as well as a Ducati 996 which is in for a big service before a trip abroad: new chain and sprockets, belts and the works!

We’ve also collected a very nice Ducati 748 which will be prepared and hopefully available in our showroom by the weekend…keep an eye on our Bikes For Sale page for details…she’s a beauty inside and out!


Lets Make The Most of Summer!

Summer seems to be well on the way out as temperature have dropped off this week but lets make the most of whats left of summer!

We’re very much looking forward to Cadwell Park this Bank Holiday weekend and we’re lucky enough to be going to Silverstone next weekend for the British round of the MotoGP. Word has it that this will be the last year we’ll see MotoGP coming to Silverstone with next years host still to be decided….personally I think it would be great to see it come back to Doddington Park but we’ll have to wait and see.

Despite many people being on their summer holidays the workshop here has been really busy this week.  We’ve got a Moto Guzzi on the bench today, Christian’s Ducati 999s is in for a pair of new tyres, Sarah has picked up her beloved Monster following an MOT and there’s a queue of bikes forming in the yard – looks like next week’s going to be busy guys!
