Kawasaki Motorcycle's long-time outpost on Barrys Point Road on Auckland’s North Shore -–Spectrum Motorcycles – has announced it will be closing down at the end of March, with the home of the Big Green Machine to move up the ‘motorcycling mile’ to the Cyclespot Group.
Dealer Principal of Spectrum, Ken Dobson, posted to the shop's Facebook page to break the news.
“Dear Customers, Racers and Friends of Spectrum. It is with some sadness I advise you all that Spectrum Motorcycles is closing permanently on March 30 2019, he wrote.
“I want to thank all of you who have supported our shop with buying bikes, gear and servicing or just calling in for a friendly chat over the years. We have had some very good times that will be great memories for us all.”
The Cyclespot Group already boasts the biggest range of brands in Auckland, with the likes of Yamaha, BMW, Husqvarna, Ducati, Norton and Indian already under the Cyclespot umbrella on Auckland’s Barrys Point Road.
Cyclespot Group director, Grant Woolford, cites Kawasaki’s recent market growth - in part thanks to the new Ninja 400 - as “one very good reason to appreciate the potential of the Team Green brand.”
Kawasaki New Zealand’s General Manager, Mike Cotter, commented that the prospect of Kawasaki owners having a new home to be well cared for has him excited.
The opening date of Cyclespot Kawasaki will be announced closer to the date.
