In 1928 the present owners' father, George Bowers, who repaired and sold all the famous old British names from a small workshop in Bury St Edmunds, opened Bowers Motorcycles. Over the years neighbouring properties were purchased, and the business expanded to include the Japanese motorcycles coming into the country.
In 1988 our current purpose built bike showroom and fully equipped workshop was opened in the heart of Bury St Edmunds and continues to go from strength to strength, selling all sizes and models from Mopeds to Superbikes. We currently have two floors of Motorcycle Sales, a large Clothing & Accessories Department, a specialist Parts & Servicing Department and a specially designed and built workshop.
Although in the past Bowers has always been known for stocking a range of makes and models of new motorcycles, we believe that the current climate means we need to specialise, so we have now become a exclusive used Dealer, and stock a huge range of bikes.
Our friendly sales people will be happy to show you around both our new and used bike showrooms and accessories department to provide your exact motorcycling requirements.
