Now Closed for Business


We recently heard the news that the property we lease for our shop has been sold. Upon extensive research and soul searching, we have decided that it is time for us to CLOSE Moto Strada. The powersport industry has seen many changes and we have weathered them all. But, we know when it's time to move on.

In the ever-growing world of e-tailers like Amazon and Ebay, it has become too difficult for us to run a self-sustaining business despite all our best efforts to cut costs and streamline our day-to-day operations. This, combined with new scooter laws and lower gas prices, has led to a consistent decline in sales over the past few years. It is hard to run a small business, so to every customer who has looked beyond our retail price tags and understood the value of honest, in person service, we sincerely thank you.

We have enjoyed providing sales and service to our valued customers for over 25 years and we are saddened that it will come to an end. We have appreciated your dedication to our shop and are grateful for your past business and support. 

Please keep an eye on the site in the months to come. We will continue to provide helpful links, video's and items for sale.  No brick and mortar location - but right at your finger tips.

Take good care and keep the rubber side down!

Your dedicated friends at Moto Strada,
Mark, Tim & Taylor
