Visit us on Saturday 31st March for our Yamaha MT Range Easter Demo Day!

We will have the full MT Range available for demonstration rides at Flitwick Motorcycles on the 31st and will be running an out-ridden test route for groups throughout the day. This should provide a perfect opportunity to ‘experience the darkside’ and get acquainted with your Yamaha MT model of choice. Machines available for test ride on the day are the 2018 MT-10, MT-09, MT-07 & MT-03 model variants (please ask if you want to test-ride a different model – if we have one available we would be happy to sort something out), so there is something for everyone. Bookings are on a first come first served basis on the day only and are subject to our licensing terms and conditions (*see below) and availability.

There’s loads more happening on the day as well, with competitions** to win some MT Accessories and [...]

The New Yamaha MT-09 SP has arrived in the Flitwick Motorcycles showroom, so why not come and have a look? I wouldn’t hang around, however, it’s already been sold! Don’t worry though, we’ll be getting another one in soon.

If you liked the MT-09 you’ll love the SP! Taking the colours from the R1-M and adding a fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock with a remote adjuster, along with upmarket Kayaba front forks with dual rated springs and adjustable preload, compression and rebound damping. All of these combine to make the MT-09 SP an absolute hoot to ride and a very capable machine when pushing on a bit.

Don’t take our word for it though – come and have a look! The MT-09 SP is hitting the showroom at £8999 plus on the road charges.

The long-awaited new Shoei Neotec 2 has arrived in the Flitwick Motorcycles showroom.

A big improvement over the already excellent original Neotec, the new helmet has been refined to make it smaller, quieter and warmer than it’s predecessor.

Improvements over the original Neotec include:


  • Dual homologation (P & J) to ride with it open or closed
  • New cheek pads and neck skirt make for a quieter and warmer ride
  • Able to take a model specific Sena Bluetooth communication system
  • 3 shell sizes across the range, avoiding a big shell with extra padding for smaller heads
  • Includes a Pinlock Evo – the top-of-range anti-fog system


We all think they look great, but more importantly they feel great when you pull one on as well. Don’t take our word for it though, why not pop into the shop and try one on yourself? Alternatively they’re available to purchase on our website!

Who are Flitwick Motorcycles..?

Flitwick Motorcycles are a Premier Exclusive Yamaha motorcycle dealer located in the small town of Flitwick in Central Bedfordshire. Run by husband and wife partnership Steve and Carole Linsdell for over thirty-five years, there's not much that our friendly team don't know about Yamahas and bikes in general!

Our History

We've been around a while! Flitwick Motorcycles have existed on this site as a Yamaha dealer since 1975, with Steve and Carole taking on the business just shy of a decade later in 1984. Yes there have been periods where we offered other marques as well ( MZ and Simpson from 1984-1995 & Triumph from 2000-2006 and in the first year we also repaired lawnmowers!)  but our primary focus has always been Yamaha.  Whilst the layout and decor of the shop has changed significantly over the years, our management, location and ethos has remained the same: Flitwick Motorcycles are here to provide our customers with top quality bikes, parts & gear alongside all associated maintenance & repair services! See below a  short history in pictures of our progression from 1984 to the present day, or [...]

Here in the UK a Motorcycle Helmet is the only bit of riding gear you are required to wear by law. Now obviously we would recommend that you go above and beyond when it comes to protecting the rest of your body, but it is true that your head is the most important part to look after… without a head the rest of you isn’t much use! Here at Flitwick Motorcycles we stock a huge range of Motorcycle Helmets to fit all sizes of head and budget.

What Brands of Motorcycle Helmet do you Stock..?

Flitwick Motorcycles are suppliers of AGV, HJC, Spada, Caberg, Shoei and Shark motorcycle helmets, so we should have something in stock that is the right fit for you. We do keep a large range of sizes and graphics, but if you don’t see what you’re looking for, or would like to order another size or colour, then please just ask –

Motorcycle Tyres are an investment. They help keep you and your bike on the road and performing at your best. You spend a fortune fitting crash protection to your bike, but the best crash protection is making sure that you always have Fresh Tyres fitted to your motorcycle! Not only do they keep you and your bike safe, but a good set of tyres will inspire confidence and simply make your motorcycling experience more fun…

Why Change your Motorcycle Tyres..?
  • Tyres are cheap compared to crash damage!
  • A good set of tyres will transform your bikes handling.
  • Tyre technologies are constantly evolving – newer compounds have better grip & better wear!
  • Fresh tyres inspire confidence & a confident rider is a happy and fast rider.
