Bowker opens its BMW Motorrad motorcycle dealership after acquiring Southport Superbikes last year.

A 13,000 square foot showroom will be home to more than 40 bikes and takes the Bowker dealership to six acres at Preston Docks.

Chief executive Paul Bowker said: “The building is really taking shape now. And we can’t wait to open. The building will be seen by thousands of Prestonians every day and have a massive impact on the landmark Preston site.”

Ten full-time jobs are being created as part of the new showroom.

Bowker Motorrad head of business Geraldine Bowers-Lyon said: “It’s good news for North West motorcycle enthusiasts too. We are opening one of the most modern dealerships in the country. This will offer even more support, choice and inspiration for old and new motorcycling adventurers in the region.”

The showroom will be officially opened on Saturday 17 October.
