Cycle Specialties, Motorcycle Repair & Service, Services, Cincinnati, Ohio

Jeff Zang and Dave Freudemann grew up riding and racing off road motorcycles, and after taking separate career paths, they both realized it was time to follow their passions. In 1984, Cycle Specialties opened in Cincinnati, OH striving to be the best motorcycle parts shop in town. What started in a small residential house that was rezoned for retail has since grown to include two full size dealerships including parts, sales and service. Jeff and Dave worked hard to turn their dream into a reality, and today, Cycle Specialties is the area’s favorite dealer for new and used motorcycles, dirt bikes, ATVs, scooters, Waverunners, and more.

When Cycle Specialties first opened, they were restricted to a small 800 Square-foot parts, apparel, and accessories store with a small installation area. They had limited resources and the odds stacked against them. Today, their two locations include extensive inventories of everything you need to support your motorcycle, UTV, Waverunner, or ATV hobby. As a credible Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki, Yamaha, and Polaris dealer, Cycle Specialties sells high-performance machines that are perfect for everyone from the pros to the backyard hobbyists.

 When you get your motorcycle from Cycle Specialties, you get more than a new toy. You get support from an entire team of motorcycle experts. Compared to other Powersports dealers in the area, Cycle Specialties is unbeatable in both service and product. Their Waverunner inventory includes both new and used models of personal watercrafts designed for everything from performance to luxury. If you’re looking for an ATV or side by side, they’ll help you choose what size and performance level is best for you.

 Whether you’re looking for the thrill of a performance street bike or hunting for a new adventure off road. Cycle Specialties is your solution. You’ll find them in both Western Hills and Fairfield, OH, so visit their showroom today to pick out your next motorcycle. Give them a call at (513) 574-7878, or visit their website to shop online at BestCycleDeals.com.
