Est. 2014

is a trading style of E.C.Bate Ltd. Established in 1895.

Launched in November 2014 to offer a new 21st Century form of personal transport.

E-Bikes are great for beating local traffic congestion and provide a healthy environmentally friendly form of transport.



E C Bate began in 1895 as a cycle shop, and until the 1970's sold Raleigh & BSA bikes.

A long heritage in the motorcycle industry began in the 60’s NSU and the first Honda motorcycles which had just begun to appear. The 70’s bought Puch, Triumph, Norton and Suzuki & Yamaha’s from Japan, by the 80’s following the demise of the British bike industry we were agents for Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha.


As time has gone by our business has changed and new products have come along.


Today E. C. Bate is a franchised Royal Enfield, Benelli, Kymco, WK & Sinnis motorcycle & scooter dealer. Our showrooms are at the rear of the old bicycle shop in “Bate’s Yard”.



A bit of Benelli's 100 years of history
