A Keighley firm has taken on the Husqvarna off-road bikes franchise.

Colin Appleyard Motorcycles will be the Swedish company’s only Yorkshire dealership and will sell the full range of Enduro and Motocross machines.

Husqvarna’s UK brand manager, David Edwards, said: “I am very pleased to have Colin Appleyard on board.

“Its reputation is very strong and it prides itself on offering the best products and customer service.”

Kevin Feeny, Appleyard’s general manager, said: “We are really excited. It bolsters our Beta Enduro and Suzuki ranges and with the trials side we can cater for all our customers’ off-road needs.”
