Motorcycles have always been cool, but today they are practical and profitable as well. Iconic brands such as Harley-Davidson will never go out of style, and motorcycling is an exhilarating way to hit the tarmac - indeed, nearly as exciting as operating your own motorcycle franchise!
According to Department for Transport statistics, the number of motorcycles on the roads has nearly doubled in the past two decades. As roads become more congested, motorcycles will increase in popularity for practical reasons alone, while campaigns such as the annual Ride to Work Week encourages bikers with incentives to use motorcycles for commuting such as free insurance cover. The Motorcycle Industry Association promotes riding motorbikes to save time, save fuel and have more fun.
Triumph, the British motorcycle marque, has been acclaimed for its vintage styling and nearly doubled its profits last year, due to the bike’s rise in popularity. Established in 1902, motorcycle sales of the company's vehicles rose by 4.5% in 2016, according to a leading financial website.
With colossal brands like Honda and Yamaha recruiting franchise directors, it has never been easier or more rewarding to take on a motorcycle franchise.
Operating a franchise is simpler than you think, and incorporates all the rewards of working independently while benefiting from the security that comes with being part of a global network and its formidable resources. Launching a franchise in this area means tapping into the recognition and trust that accompanies a major, world-leading brand which is a huge incentive in any business.
Motorcycle franchises are in great demand, and many areas are waiting for dynamic business leaders to take charge in untapped markets where rents are cheap and competition is minimal. If you’re ready to take the next step, contact us today.
