Welcome to Penrith Motorcycles

Penrith Motorcycles have been supplying quality, clean used motorcycles since 1991.

The business was established by Barry Utting who has been in the motorcycle trade since 1978.  He started at age 14 as a Saturday boy at DRD Motorcycles in North Walsham,Norfolk, before starting Crown Motorcycles near Norwich at age 23. A move to Cumbria led to the creation of Penrith Motorcycles.

Barry still has the Suzuki T250 Hustler that he bought in 1979 along with old Yamaha TZ250’s that he used to race, and a W650 Kawasaki.

Workshop technician and MOT tester Alan Wright joined the firm in 2005. He has owned many varied machines over the years and currently runs an Enfield 500 and a Honda CRF 300.

Alan Long has been a valued customer since 1991 and has now worked with us for a number of years.  He cleans and prepares the showroom bikes to our exacting standards.  Alan now runs a BMW R1200R.

Jonny Walker has been a loyal customer since 1991 and is now also working on preparation of our showroom machines. He loves the classic 2-strokes and has had a number of Yamaha LCs. Currently has a Kawasaki Z400.

Tony Borgogno joined the team in April 2022 having been another long term customer of ours. He currently has a Suzuki GSX1400 and works in our sales and marketing department so if you want a bike give him a ring on 01768 891300!!!
