Destination dealer: Sycamore Motorcycles
Sycamore Motorcycles offers the best support to seasoned Harley-Davidson and Ducati owners and a warm welcome to anyone who is new to two of the most enduring brands in biking.
Based in the heart of Uppingham, the dealership is family owned and split into two distinct showrooms so you can be sure of expert service whether you are looking for a Ducati or a Harley.
Company chairman Peter Hamblin said: “We have been operating in Uppingham since the 50s and are very proud to work with Ducati and Harley who share our values of excellent customer service and have a superbly designed range of luxury motorcycles, accessories and clothing.”
Whichever brand you are interested in, the dealership can organise one-hour test rides at weekends or longer periods during the week. And Sycamore’s location means you’ll be able to enjoy some glorious roads in and around Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire. A range of Harleys can also be rented from £90 per day – ideal if you are planning a weekend away or want to see how the Harley lifestyle suits your riding.
Sycamore is a destination in itself with a Harley owners HOG meet on the third Wednesday of every month and a general bike night on the last Wednesday of the month. Open to all brands, it will feature a BBQ, competitions and more besides. There is a burger van at weekends too.
Customer service is key – both in the showrooms and workshops. If you are looking to customise your Harley, Sycamore’s specialist fitters are on hand to help. Custom paintjobs can be undertaken too.
The workshop has trained technicians for both Harley and Ducati and offers MoT testing on any make of machine.
There are more than 100 new and used bikes in stock at any one time along with a full range of Ducati and Harley-Davidson accessories. Expect expert advice and appealing offers throughout the year.
If you are after a learner, commuter or second machines, Sycamore also offers a range of Kymco scooters with thrifty fuel consumption and recession beating prices. The dealership is open seven days a week.
