Suffolk-based Brandon Car Centre, has added bikes to its portfolio after losing its MG main dealer franchise. The business, based in Brandon near Thetford, had been an MG outlet since 2016, but was removed from the firm’s listings after being deemed too small to continue with the Chinese-owned car maker. It will continue to service cars, and sell used and some new models, but is now expanding into the bike world. The dealership has taken on BSA, Niu, Benelli and Sinnis brands and will carry out bike servicing and MOTs and sell a range of bike kit and accessories.
Talking to local news site Suffolk News, owner Daniel Freeman said: “As MG has grown, they have new requirements, which means our showroom is no longer large enough. Obviously, we were disappointed as we have successfully sold new MGs to hundreds of customers since we first became a franchise in 2016. But we are still an approved MG centre for services and warranty work and can still source new MGs.”
