Doble Motorcycles

86-92 & 103 Brighton Road, CR5 2NG


Why buy from Doble Motorcycles

Doble Motorcycles is a long established family run business founded in 1967 by Mike Doble senior and late brother Chris Doble. It all started with just one shop no. 88 Brighton road selling one or two step through mopeds and motorcycle servicing. Chris managed the bike business while Mike set up a used car showroom across the road at 103, this also took off very well and thrived as the motor industry boomed. Time moved on and expansion was inevitable for the Motorcycle shop. Honda was increasing its model range rapidly with big sellers like the Superdream and CX500. The adjacent shop no. 90 was acquired and soon become filled with exciting new models. But again the market grew and the need to expand soon arrived. Seeming to take over one end of Coulsdon no. 86 was sought and another 50% increase in size took place. Honda's market share also grew to keep customers coming back time and time again. It became apparent that car sales were not able to keep pace with the two wheeled sales, so all resources were pooled together to once again double the business size to give huge choice and diversity to the customer. Doble Motorcycles Selling and specialising in the world's leading makes from day one has been Doble's biggest strength. Mike Doble Junior and Paul Styles now run the dealership along with Mike Doble Senior, Anne Doble, and a good enthusiastic and dedicated team who all love working with motorcycles. Dobles have been nominated Honda dealer of the year four times. The award is not just based on sales, but on product presentation and more importantly, all round customer care. This is something Dobles pride themselves on and a practise, which has earned them a reputation for service & reliability throughout their many years in Coulsdon.

HONDA CBR650R (2019-on)
MCN Rating 4 out of 5 View full MCN ratings
Owners' Rating 5 out of 5 View full owners' ratings

MCN overall review verdict: The CBR650R looks every bit a mini-Fireblade and makes for a very enjoyable relaxed day-to-day sportsbike. But is there a market for it in? Surprisingly, Honda sold 602 CBR650F models in the UK last year (ironically more than the 'Blade), so on this evidence there most certainly is. We're running a Honda CBR650R on the MCN long-term test fleet Some potential owners may be more tempted to buy a used supersport bike instead of spending nearly £8000 on a new CBR650R, but a PCP plan that currently works out at £99 a month may sway this decision…
