  • Franchise agreements with manufacturers often go into detail about the building, its location, its proximity to other franchisees, the color, and its signage and decor. I expect that almost all would require you, as a dealer, to stock parts and service what you sell.

    You will need a contract with the manufacturer and that contract will likely state the requirements.

    Ground floor, unless you're selling the Pegasus brand.

      Two dealers in my state have a second floor, but it's offices, storage, even museums:

    A shop with a large floor space, but motorcycle repairs provide a regular income and are essential for our business. Attempting to make a living just on sale is foley.

    Ask City hall. They are the ones with the business licenses which you have to get first and a suitable spot.

    All motorcycles, new or used, will need some preparation before they can be handed over to a customer so at the very least you will need some workshop space, parking and a showroom.

    Depends on what types of bikes you which to sell, new or used, different brands or whatever.

    Not saying you can't have a service dept but it might be nice to be able the offer your customers some type of help.

    Used to shop at North County Yamaha (Escondido,CA) when it was a small shop of about 2,500 sq.ft.  but it grew over the years to sell more than just Yamaha. They sold and serviced new Triumph, KTM and used other brands and now have a shop 20X that size.
