A BUSINESSMAN has chosen two top motorcycle models to spearhead the launch hire fleet of a new rental and tours service.

Terry Drew, director of Triplemoto, will offer a number of British built Triumph Tiger 800 and Tiger 1050 touring models as well as a select few BMW S1000RR superbikes, derived from its successful track racers.

The company, in Mercers Road, Bury St Edmunds, has been developing the service for about a year, including negotiating specially tailored insurance arrangements.

After a ‘soft launch’ a few months ago, it has added a range of extras packages and features such as meet and greet shuttle services from Bury railway station and Stansted airport as well as local hotel stopovers and handover deals.

It is also working on a UK- based tours programme for next year.

Last week, the company’s new interactive website went live where bookings, rider details, insurance particulars and other requirements can be entered securely online, linked to its terms and conditions.

Mr Drew said: “We are the first motorcycle rental and tours company in East Anglia and while we may not be the first in the UK, we aspire to be different and the best.

“That is why we have added additional services during the period of our soft launch.

“We are also working with dealers to offer the opportunity and benefit of a Triplemoto ‘tribuy’ package.

“One of the biggest issues for motorcycle buyers is that the purchase decision has to be based on showroom viewing and a quick run around the block.

“If you are spending anything between £8,000 and £15,000 on one of today’s serious advanced machines, you really want to live with it over a long weekend – and our service will enable the discerning rider to do just that.”
