Felixstowe dealer Alford Brothers is seeing growing interest in its latest franchise – WK motorcycles.
WK is the lastest Chinese brand, alongside Sym, Baotian and Kee-way, being sold by the motorcycle and cycle retailer in Hamilton Road, Felixstowe,
Dave Alford, a director of the family-run business which was established more than 50 years ago, said the quality of motorcycles made in China had improved considerably in recent years as the products were modified but they still offered value pricing.
The WK range includes 50cc scooters from £899, 125cc, 250cc and 300cc scooters from £1,199, 125cc road and trail motorcycles from £1,499, a 450cc RX Enduro from £3,899 and two 650cc twin motorcycles – the naked 69bhp 650i at £4,199 and fully-faired 650TR tourer on special offer until the end of this month at £4,899.
He said the dealership had already sold half a dozen WK motorcycles and was now looking to step up its promotion and build the brand having had good feedback from customers and showing them at Copdock Motorcycle Show while the motorcycle marque had also just been raced at the Isle of Man TT.
“They are good value for the money and are really nice to ride,” he said.
He explained that Alford Brothers at Felixstowe also wanted to be able to offer bigger-capacity motorcycles.
