The Playbook For The Modern Man

Best Motorbike Shops In Sydney For The Ultimate Two-Wheeled Fun

Petrolheads will tell you that nothing can beat four wheels on the tarmac and an engine upfront that sings a delightfully deep and rumbling tune. But those who prefer to live life on two wheels can have equally as much fun, with motorbikes not only being more affordable, but they can accelerate at blistering speeds, and, not to mention, they can weave their way through Sydney’s rush-hour traffic.

But just as you wouldn’t go to just any car dealership, you wouldn’t want to walk into any motorbike shop. Which is exactly why we’ve curated a list of the very shops for all things two-wheeled in and around Sydney city. Not only have we included the best shops to buy yourself a new two-wheeler, but also the shops you need to know to buy parts and accessories.

Freedom Motorcycles

For all things Honda-related, Freedom Motorcycles is well worth a visit. The shop, located in Brookvale, is a specialist when it comes to the Japanese brand and has been servicing Sydney and the wider community for some 30 plus years. The store doesn’t restrict its stock to solely road bikes either, as it’s also the place to pick up off-roaders, scooters and ATVs.

You can occasionally find a range of pre-owned bikes too at great prices, and the team adds that if you somehow find a better price in Sydney, they’ll do their best to match or better it. What Freedom Motorcycles does offer, however, is a 10 per cent off parts and accessories for life with the purchase of each motorbike. A comprehensive range of motorbike helmets and clothing and a fully-fledged workshop only adds to the store’s appeal.

All are competitively priced, too, with not a single bike costing more than $8,000 before OTR costs.
