Jet Sport Bloemfontein

Jet Sport Bloemfontein Our next stop was at the ever popular Jet Sport owned and managed by the well known and very likeable Leander Pienaar. Leander is also partly the reason we made the pilgrimage the the city of flowers. He recently moved into bigger, better premises in town and sent us a couple of pics and some information on the new dealership which we ran in this fine magazine a few months ago and we decided it looked so good we had to come see it for ourselves. Jet Sport, to the best of our knowledge, is currently the only independently owned Indian Motorcycles dealership in South Africa outside of Indian Motorcycles South Africa. They have a good representative range of Motorcycles on their showroom floor, more Indian MC clothing and accessories than you can shake a stick at as well as a properly equipped workshop. They are also well stocked agents for Polaris and Linhai Side x Sides and quads as well as Can-Am and Sea-doo. Leander and his Jet Sport team are starting to develop a reputation as the go to guys in South Africa for the customising and upgrading of the 1000cc Side x Sides with customers reaching from as far afield as Umhlanga, Thabazimbi and the Eastern Cape. Their workshop is also quite spectacular, especially on the Jet Ski side and considering they are a land locked province. They have built test tank for the Jet Ski’s so they can run them flat out under load to make sure they sort out all the gremlins in the system before sending them back to their owners. Find them at 145 Church street, Bloemfontein CBD or call them on 051 448 0993. You can even contact them via Facebook on Jetsport outdoor lifestyle centre. Amphibia Suzuki M&M, that is what they call themselves - Not the “Wrapper” (intentionally mispelled so I don’t puke … freakin’ hate that talent-less noise), but like the candy … eye candy really. Michelle and Michelle are the bubbly ladies that run Amphibia Suzuki and Michelle tells us that their secret is a straight up good relationship with their customers and excellent customer service. They are the official agents for Suzuki Motorcycles in the Central Free State as well as one of two SYM agencies in town. Besides the two motorcycle brands they also stock top brands like Bridgestone, Dunlop, Michelin, Pirelli, DID, Regina, SBS along with a good range of helmets, jackets, gloves, boots and much, much more. On the service side they have a well equipped and staffed professional workshop that can do whatever needs to be done to keep your pride and joy in tip top condition and they are willing to work on just about every motorcycle under the sun, they also do dyno tuning, so you can squeeze that extra bit of horsepower out of your steed for the amazingly good roads in and around Bloemfontien. Interesting fact, Michelle “Boss Lady” Kritzinger’s brother owns and runs Amphibia Bethlehem and are also Suzuki agents as well as agents for Honda Wing, Polaris and Linhai. So biking runs in the family, and if you’re into motorcycles that is a good family to do business with. Pop in for a visit at 100 Oliver Tambo Road, Bloemfontein Central, or give them a call on 051 430 5525. To the best of out knowledge JetSport is the only independent Indian Motorcycles dealership in SA outside of the importers and Distributors Jet Sport are quickly developing a reputation country wide as the go to guys for modifying and customising Side x Sides The tank specially built to run Jet Ski’s at full whack to make sure they are the best they can be before going back to their owners M & M not like the Wrapper, but like the (eye) candy.
