Mega Motorcycle Centre has become a hub for Canterbury motorcyclists and anyone who loves bikes. Formerly known as Budget Motorcycle Spares, it has grown, as the new name suggests, into a biker’s paradise of mega proportions. “Mega Motorcycle Centre is very much a one stop-shop for everything to do with motorcycling,” says Mega Motorcycle Centre’s Sam Davison.
What started a shop for spares, accessories, and riding apparel, has grown exponentially into a fully-fledged engineering facility with engine tuning, dyno testing and other mechanical work.
“We can carry out any form of mechanical tuning or upgrades to your bike,” says Sam.
Also, Sam, Dennis and the team of tight-knit mechanics and technicians are some of the most passionate motorcycle enthusiasts around. They know their stuff and can take on everything from a simple service to a full engine rebuild.
Mega Motorcycle Centre also welcomes any brand of bike into the shop. The team knows what unites keen motorcyclists is the love of the ride, regardless of what they are into.
So, whether you get your kicks on your Harley-Davidson Softail Cruiser, or your Ducati 916 Sports Bike, you are more than welcome at Mega Motorcycle Centre, 334 Wilsons Road, Waltham, Christchurch.
For Dennis Charlett, motorcycles are a way of life, whether on a Saturday ride, or competing in the New Zealand Superbike Championship, of which he has multiple national titles under his belt.
Dennis knows the bike industry inside and out, which led to him purchasing Budget Motorcycles Spares Ltd, and transforming it into Mega Motorcycles Centre.
“I have been in the industry for a number of years, but I have always wanted to own my own motorcycle business,” he says.
“The opportunity came to buy Budget Motorcycle Spares, from there it evolved into Mega Motorcycle Centre.”
What started as a shop specialising in tyres, parts and riding accessories, is now a fully fledged motorcycle one stop shop.
“We still retain all the services of Budget Motorcycle Spares, like tyres, parts, helmets, riding gear and accessories. However, we are now a one stop shop with tuning, dyno testing, and other mechanical work.”
Dennis’ competitive nature on the track is also evident when it comes to giving his loyal customers the best experience and service possible, regardless of what they ride.
“My team and I always ensure our customers leave with what they want. It doesn’t matter what they are into, Harleys or Japanese Sports Bikes, we welcome any brand or style.”
