5-Ways Motorcycle Centre receives retailer of the year award at Auto Trader retailer awards 2023
Because when you buy a new or pre-owned bike from 5-WAYS you can be assured you are buying a motorcycle of real quality and value. Our second-generation family run dealership was established 40 years ago in 1980. Our long-term experience in motorcycle retailing and our time-served team gives us a pretty good idea of what makes a great bike dealership. Customer satisfaction is key for us, and we want you to feel wanted and cared for. Our new motorcycles and scooters are produced by 4 of the world’s leading brands renowned for build quality and reliability. Our used bikes are regarded as "Premier League" and we are confident you would struggle to find better prepared examples. We thoroughly safety inspect and valet all our used bikes prior to re-sale to ensure they meet our exceptional standards. We are "Highly rated" 5-star award winners on Autotrader for customer experience and consistently feature at the top of our manufacturer’s customer satisfaction dealer leagues.
We believe the experience of buying a motorcycle from a dealership should be the beginning of something special, not the end! Collecting your new ride should be one of the best days of your life, and our team do their upmost to make the whole buying experience as enjoyable as possible. We don't see a motorcycle as a "Fire and Forget" product and you shouldn't buy a motorcycle the way you buy a fridge or TV. A motorcycle is a wonderful and complex piece of equipment. It demands your involvement but promises plenty. It can quite literally change your whole attitude to life, completely and forever. Motorcycles don't have souls, but they can sure as hell help you to find yours. Come and speak to us to find out more.
We live and breathe motorcycles and have done for more than 40 years. Our team includes guys who commute daily on all types of bikes (just look at our car park) guys who restore classic bikes, guys who tour Europe on bikes, guys who get muddy on bikes and guys who like to go fast on bikes. We all ride and between us have ridden or owned most of the best-selling Japanese models sold over the last 30-40 years. Our combined biking experiences set us in pretty good stead to give you honest unbiased advice in a friendly way. We sell three different Japanese’s brands alongside our French scooters, so we have a world of choice to offer you under one roof. We are not tied to one brand, so we can show you lots of options to help you get on the most suitable bike first time around. Our manufacturers make sure we really do know our ABS from our TCS, and we invest heavily in training our team to ensure we know our way round all the latest models. The most important thing - Don't ever forget that motorcycling is meant to be fun - because we certainly haven’t!
We work hard to make sure all our customers leave our showrooms delighted with their new ride. Presentation is mega important to us and you can be assured that your new ride has been checked and double checked by our highly qualified manufacturer trained technicians and then 3rd checked by our Service Controller before you receive it.
We're fussy and it shows! As bikers we know your new ride will be your pride and joy so when we prepare a used bike for resale, we really do give it the valet of a lifetime. We are big on the little things that often go missed. They say it's all in the detail and we make our used stock truly gleam all over! Many of our customers comment that they simply haven't seen better prepared stock. We don't want anything to take the shine off buying a bike, so we go out of our way to make sure our used bikes look as good as new - and our new bikes look the way they should -brand new!
Serviced to schedule
We endeavour to supply all our bikes with full documentation packs including owner's manuals, service record books and a minimum of 2 keys. On pre-owned bikes we inspect the service record and ensure that any service requirements needed to bring the bike up to manufacturer's schedule are carried out by our factory trained technicians prior to resale.
75-point PDI -Pre-delivery inspection certificate
All bikes supplied by us are given a comprehensive safety inspection prior to collection to fully ensure your safety and peace of mind when riding. We carry out the same checks on all our used bikes that we do on our new bikes so you can rest assured it's been checked, and double checked. We then road-test the bike and carry out a final pre-handover valet to really make sure your new ride shines! You will get a copy of the inspection certificate when you receive your bike.
All pre-owned bikes that are 3yrs old or more come with a valid MOT certificate with a minimum of 6 months remaining until a re-test is required. Basically, if it hasn't got at least 6 months left to run then we will carry out a full new MOT.
Whether you choose to finance your bike over 12 months or 60 months, you'll find no one is more flexible or works harder to make sure you get the right bike at the right monthly payment to suit your budget. We can transfer the balance of any existing loan you may have towards your new purchase and as we are not tied to any one finance provider, so you can be sure that our sales team will find the most competitive package for you. We are FCA regulated and adhere to their "Treating customers fairly" protocol meaning you get the very best APR rates available from our panel of lenders.
We welcome part exchanges and are always in the market for good quality used bikes. We take cars in part exchange and can also find homes for high mileage bikes or older bikes which are perhaps past their best. Your current bike might not be "Premier League" but don't worry we work with several trade underwriters who work hard to give us the very best values for your part exchange.

Fiveways Motorcycle Centre Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Fiveways Motorcycle Centre Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
