Against a background of tragic family illness and surrendering its treasured Honda franchise, the historic Surbiton-based dealership Tippetts Motors finally closed down on 31 May after completing the successful sale of the property.
Owner Mark Alexander announced this decision “with great sadness and a heavy heart” in a statement on social media. “It has been a great pleasure to service the motorcycle community for 60 years as a Honda main dealer and another 20 before as a British motorcycle dealer,” he said. “We would like to thank all our customers, pass and present, for their custom and the great wonderful times that we had.”
Alexander went on the tell BDN “we are looking forward to launching a new venture very soon”.
