The New K and G Cycles Motorcycle Service Supercenter!

K and G Cycles Retail Floor

Follow all of the progress at the new

K and G Cycles Motorcycle Service Supercenter

 

We Are Excited!

After almost a year in the planning stages (almost what seemed like an eternity of torture in the permit process), the new K and G Cycles Motorcycle Supercenter is about to break ground. A 7,000 sf state-of-the-art motorcycle retail parts and accessories showroom and a full-service motorcycle service and repair center. Located at Exit 0 at the end of the Florida Turnpike, the new facility will be a must-see must-stop for all South Florida motorcycle enthusiasts that demand great selection, excellent prices, and the best motorcycle service and repair anywhere.

 

K and G Cycles will open its new motorcycle retail and service supercenter in early 2017! Reknown retail designer, Jeff Grant, did the design for the retail floor. It is going to be like nothing you have ever seen, I promise. When you are in South Florida, we invite you to stop by. You can check out our high-tech retail floor (over 30 digital monitors and 5 Internet customer shopping kiosks), get your bike serviced, or just introduce your self and talk a little motorcycle. On your way to the Florida Keys? You will probably want some insider knowledge about Key Largo and Key West - both are a biker's dream come true and a must see when you are down our way.

 

Until opening day, this page will contain daily updates with photos and information about the progress of the construction. The most recent activity will always be on top but you can scroll down to see things you might have missed.

 

We want you to share the excitement with all of our friends at K and G Cycles!
