By Andrew Corson on 19 Mar 21

A very good service all round, bought my bike and had it delivered with no problems. Staff are very friendly and make you feel valued which can be rare to find these days .Both Ian and Mike were very helpful and can't thank them enough.

Really impressed

By KAWASAKI KID on 16 Mar 21

I was really impressed with the quality and wide range of bikes they have in stock and all immaculate. The staff were really helpful and couldn’t have accommodated me more. I can’t recommend them enough, keep up the good work guys.

Very prompt and helpful

By Kenneth Gallimore on 16 Mar 21

Very prompt and helpful customer service. Did not buy the bike in the end but this was purely due to the distance from my home in Dorset. Cannot fault the quality and pricing of the bikes.

I wouldnt hesitate in recommending Optimum

By Matt Farrar on 27 Feb 21

Booked my bike in with Mark through a reccomendation, and im certainly glad i did. Its fair to say, the issues weren't quite straight forward but Mark kept me informed, and went the extra mile the whole way through. It's had Tyres, fork seals and an entirely new charging system sourced through an Aprilia Specialist and it now honestly rides like a new bike. I wouldnt hesitate in recommending Optimum for any of your bike repair or servicing needs

Recommend Optimum Bikes to anyone

By Daniel Loughran on 24 Feb 21

Just bought a lovely triumph speed triple from the guys at Optimum Bikes. Gorgeous bike in amazing condition and I love it. All the guys at Optimum are brilliant to deal with and they absolutely know their onions. Buying bikes from people who know their bikes is good sense for any customer. Like I said...they know their onions and so you can definitely be sure they won’t sell you a lemon! Top showroom, top staff, top bikes. I recommend Optimum Bikes to anyone looking for a new bike.

Professional and pleasant experience

great sales team

By Clifford B on 02 Oct 17

easy to deal with would recomend them to anybody easy transaction over telephone


By James B on 27 Sep 17

Excellent and do what they promise I would recommend optimum bikes to anyone


By Caroline F on 26 Sep 17

Ian and Claire have been very helpful and easy to deal with, excellent service and competitive prices. Only draw back is, you cannot currently test ride the bikes, due to insurance etc. Although they do issue a 3 month warranty which gives piece of mind. After-sales service has been excellent too, unfortunately my bike was not running 100% due to having low mileage and being stood for a long time by the previous owner. But this was sorted out very promptly by Ian who collected the bike, made sure it was running perfectly and delivered it back. I would definitely buy another bike from them and recommend them to others.

BMW RT 1200.

By Martyn B on 26 Sep 17

Great service from the start of my enquiry about the bike I have purchased. BMW RT1200. No pushy sales patter or phone calls. Once I was happy with the price everything was dealt with in great detail and service second to none. Top staff and bike shop. Would purchase from Optium bikes again. Bike was delivered by in a top of the range ford transit by professional driver. No cowboy like some company's use. All in all a great service. Thank you again.

Would definitely recommend 5*****

By Dave T on 22 Sep 17

Motorbike is 1st class and as described and more. Easiest deal I've ever made and I've made quite a few in my years. Communications were excellent , I was given all the details and information about the bike before delivery, the whole transaction was sweet. A+++++++++++++++Thanks

Best bike dealer I’ve ever dealt with!

By Dean B on 29 Feb

Very friendly, professional and helpful. I’ve had a lot of bikes over the years and these guys really know there stuff, best example bikes for sale. Ian was a pleasure to deal with thank you.

The best experience I've ever had buying a bike.

By Andrew P on 06 Feb

I was only 6 months into a PCP and found the bike didn't suit my needs, called in to have a look around and explained my situation , they said not a problem , about 20 minutes later we had done a deal,all I had to do was pay a small amount to cover the difference and they did everything else. The bike was serviced and delivered , the driver is a credit to the company, he arrived exactly on time and took his time to explain everything. Overall the best experience I've ever had buying a bike.

Professional from start to finish

By James S on 16 Aug 19

Excellent from start to finish. Both sale guys were professional from the moment you walk in to the moment you ride away on a new bike. You have to go just to see the bikes and a free coffee or course but friendly and welcoming. Top business

A Great First Experience

By Peter S on 22 Nov 18

Bought a BMW K1200S from them on an impulse back in October and have been thrilled with it ever since. As others have said, they are a nice bunch of folk. The bike was genuinely immaculate and original and a real pleasure to own. We've now spotted another on the website.....I wouldn't rule 2 bikes in 2 months out of the question.

Xc triumph explorer

By Andy B on 07 Nov 18

Would recommend you to buy off this company with lots of confidence. My delivery of my bike was superb. 👍

Best dealership fully recommend!

By Wurz R on 23 Jul 18

I’ve recently bought a Kawasaki from The team The deal struck was great! and they are the best bike dealership I’ve ever dealt with Nothing was too much for them they go that extra mile for Customer satisfaction and the bikes are immaculate! Thanks again guys!


By Mike T on 07 Jul 18

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Optimum Bikes. Their comprehensive, detailed bike descriptions on AutoTrader lured me towards an attractive-looking F800GT, so much so that a week or so later I found myself on a train from Dorset to York. I was met at the station and driven to the spacious showroom. My only regret was not having time to fully appreciate the impressive array of bikes on display, but the hour was pressing as it’s a long ride from Wetherby to Sherborne. I was treated with friendly courtesy and professionalism throughout the entire purchasing process - difficult, therefore, to comprehend the negative comment reported elsewhere! Thank you again for your excellent service.

Great experience, professional and not pushy.

By Rob G on 20 May 18

Just bought a Suzuki V-Strom 650, these guys where friendly, informative and not pushy. Really quick turn around and delivered to my house within 5 days👍. Really pleased with my new bike thanks 👍.

Best used motorcycle dealer in the area

By Charlotte S on 11 May 18

Really happy with my new BMW, friendly and welcoming showroom. They sourced and fitted a load of extras at a very reasonable price. After sales service and care has been impeccable, will definitely return when I fancy changing my bike. Highly recommended. Thanks Optimum bikes.

By John S on 11 May 18
