A true Kiwi motorcycle journey began in Hamilton back in 1959 when brothers David & Bob Boyd set up shop in Frankton.

They sold the ‘best of breed’ in the motorcycles of the day including notable British marques, Norton and Triumph.

Later, when Japanese bikes were making their move on the market, the brothers won the Honda franchise and the business moved to Victoria Street, the Golden Mile in Hamilton City, trading as Boyd Bothers.

Today, in the capable hands of Greg and Sue Boyd, there is a primo shop on Te Rapa Straight trading as Boyd Motorcycles.

The couple took over in 1993 but the need for more space prompted the move to Te Rapa.

Now, they say, still more space is needed to house the popular marques they are selling.

“We need a bigger showroom to house the BMW, Suzuki and KTM models as well as the latest Adventure bikes on offer,” said Sue.

“We’ve looked at extensions to this building but the amount of red tape involved is holding us back and we feel we are being pushed into buying larger premises,” she said.

Over the years the Boyd Motorcycles staff has grown to 20 covering workshop, administration, sales, parts and accessories.

Greg said the company is very big on motorcycle accessories.

“We have regular customers calling in every week to check out what new gear we have in stock,” he said.

“Our philosophy is: If it’s not in stock – we can’t sell it.”

“And when a person is sorting out which one of our many bikes to purchase, part of our offer is the appropriate gear to go with it.

Greg said: “As a leading supplier of motorbike parts and accessories. Our retail shop is bulging with Shoei, Alpinestars, Fox, Revit, Oxford and much more.

“Basically, we aim to have what you need and if you don’t see what you want, just ask.”

He added that the KTM bikes Boyds sell are produced in Austria and have grown to be Europe’s biggest selling off-road brand.

“We have an extensive range of Road, Adventure, Commuter, MX, Enduro & Dual Sport bikes. Not to mention all of the range of Suzuki’s ATV farm quads & 2 wheelers” he said. “And we endeavour to have a demonstrator fleet in store for customers to help make their motorcycling choice.

“So if you are looking for a KTM, BMW or Suzuki we are happy to see you in our store at Te Rapa. They’re worth a serious look for anyone who is big into Motorcycling,” he said. For more information check out the website
