Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May

Yamaha are celebrating the countdown to summer with a special event to showcase our popular Sport Touring range.

We will be opening our doors on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th May for our Sport Touring Demo weekend.

The weekend-long event offers the chance to test ride the new 2019 Tracer 700, as well as the popular Tracer 900 and super-practical FJR1300 models.

As the first national dealer event featuring the new NIKEN, there’s a chance for you to try one of theses revolutionary machines, which have been lauded for their stability and front-end grip by the UK’s motorcycling press.

And we are giving away a FREE personal powerbank to all riders who take a test ride on a Sport Touring model during the event.*

Now it’s your turn to discover the Roads of Life!

2018 Calendar

Check out what we're upto this year!

Congrats Dean Hemmings of The Motorbike Shop!

Dean recently completed the London-Surrey Ride 100 and all for a cause very close to his heart.

Dean Hemmings, Director of The Motorbike Shop, recently took part in the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100. Upon completing the ride and in Dean’s own words, ‘if anyone wants a cheap bike, I’m selling mine!’.

Despite Dean’s less than positive, yet comedic view on his future career in road cycling, we here at The Motorbike Shop have huge respect for his incredible achievement. Dean spent a great deal of time and energy training for the almost impossible feat of succeeding in this challenge. And succeed he did.

The money he has so far raised is all for charity and, specifically, the Samson Centre for MS. In his own words, here is why both the charity and the ride are of such importance to him…

”Some of you may know, I like a challenge…..this one may be a step too far, but I’m in training and it’s for [...]

2015 MCN Awards

Yamaha scoop six top 2015 MCN awards.

Widely recognised as the most prestigious awards in motorcycling, the 2015 MCN Award winners have finally been announced in today’s edition of Motor Cycle News. With Yamaha machines winning five of the most coveted categories and with Yamaha also being voted the MCN 2015 Manufacturer of the Year, the expert judging panel have recognised both the outstanding range of Yamaha two wheelers and the resurgence of the famous tuning fork brand.

Two different MT models have scooped the top prizes in their respective classes – with the MT-07 being voted as the winner of the Best Naked (middleweight) category for the second year running, while the top selling MT-09 Tracer was voted Best All Rounder by the judges.

Equally significant is the award given to the new NMAX 125 which has been voted the Best Scooter for [...]

Yamaha is very pleased to announce that it has added the cost effective range of BS Batteries to its Genuine Yamaha Parts line-up and they are now available through its Authorised dealer network for all Yamaha models.

The winter period is typically a time when a lot of Yamaha owners have put their motorcycle into hibernation until spring when the weather improves. However, whilst this may avoid the inevitable impact of the seasonal conditions on external parts of a motorcycle, one component that can often be over-looked but will degrade over time if not suitably maintained is the battery.

Whilst many owners will make use of a ‘trickle charger’ to look after their Yamaha’s battery health, for some owners, this is not practical and a battery will eventually need replacing. In this instance, an expired motorcycle battery [...]

MT-07 voted MCN Overall Machine of the Year 2014

Widely recognised as the most prestigious awards in motorcycling, the 2014 MCN Awards have finally been announced with two different MT models scooping the top prize in their respective classes – with the new MT-125 voted Best 125cc machine of the year and the MT-07 declared as the winner in the Best Naked (middleweight) category, whilst also being chosen by the distinguished judges as the MCN Overall Machine of the Year 2014.

Winning any of the annual MCN awards is always an honour but to receive the top prize confirms that a new motorcycle is something rather special.

The Machine of the Year 2014 award is even more significant than normal for this affordable, twin cylinder machine, as the judges have historically tended to vote for large capacity [...]
