A family-run Swansea business and Europe’s largest supplier of motorcycle spares and accessories is joining Bombardier Recreational Products’ growing Can-Am Spyder dealership network.
The partnership is part of the company’s growth plan to meet the continually changing demands from its regional, national and international customer base while introducing new sales opportunities to broaden business.
The agreement will also enable the dealership, 35-year-old M & P which employs 80 people at its purpose-built combined showroom and warehouse facility, to offer customers a product that is suitable for multiple rider types from the high performance users to those who are interested in long distance cruising.
The Can-Am Spyder is a luxury three-wheeled vehicle designed and developed by BRP’s engineers to provide riders with the ultimate open road experience. Its Y frame design, with two wheels at the front for steering and one at the rear, generates the riding experience of a motorcycle and the stability and handling of a sports car.
All models in the line-up can be ridden with either a full bike or car licence and cost from £15,600 to £25,000.
Mike Loach, Cam-Am commercial manager UK and Ireland, said, “M and P is known throughout the motorcycle industry as a business that prides itself on providing its customers with the highest levels of service and a strong range of products from clothing and accessories to vehicles, which aligns perfectly with the Can-Am brand.
“We look forward to harnessing the knowledge and expertise of Mark and his team and assisting them in showcasing to their customers how riding has evolved and how the Can-Am Spyder line-up can create a thrilling experience for users on the open road.”
Mark Collings, director of M and P, added, “We are always looking at our customers’ requirements and we noticed that they were keen for us to source more versatile high end vehicles, which is why we decided to take on the Can-Am Spyder line-up.
“We have been aware of BRP’s products for a while now and felt that it was the right time to add the Spyder range because we believe that it fits with our ethos of offering our clientele a product that stands out from the crowd yet is value for money.
“At M and P, we believe that this addition will assist in allowing our brand to continue its evolution and stay ahead of our competitors.”
