Bradford Motorcycles is now Colin Appleyard

Colin Appleyard: your official dealer for Suzuki, Yamaha & Husqvarna in Keighley near Bradford. Established in 1971, we are a family owned and family run dealer priding ourselves on always going the extra mile to provide the best possible products and services for our customers. Following the purchase of Bradford Motorcycles in late 2017, Colin Appleyard is now proud to be one of the largest independent, multi-franchise motorcycle showrooms in the country.

As well as a full range of Suzuki, Yamaha and Husqvarna motorcycles on offer, we also stock over 100 quality used motorcycles and have a great selection of demo bikes available for test. Our expertise isn’t just limited to road bikes as we are also representatives for off-road, stocking Husqvarna, Beta & Oset and not forgetting, of course, our specialist Goldwing & Trike Centre.

Our large showroom in Keighley, West Yorkshire carries an extensive range of motorcycle parts, accessories and clothing. Whether its road, off road, kids gear, helmets or simply casual wear: we’ve got it! And if we don't have it available in stock, we'll source whatever it is you're looking for from our large supplier network, all at the best possible prices. Take a look at our online store.


Here at Colin Appleyard, we pride ourselves on staff retention - and this shows when you look at how long our staff have worked for us. We have 3 staff who've been with us for over 40 years, and out of 135 employees, 38 have worked at Colin Appleyard for over 10 years.

Malcolm our service manager, has been a Colin Appleyard employee for over 40 years so you can be confident you're in good hands, as there is nothing Malcolm doesn't know when it comes to looking after, and servicing your motorcycle.

Many of our Keighley motorcycle staff have been with us for a great number of years, so you can be confident in their skills and knowledge, as well as their dedication to providing the best possible customer service. Why not get in touch with us, and see if we can help?

"I would recommend Colin Appleyard to anyone. You are always guaranteed excellent service. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable about their products."
