Motorbike specialist Via Moto is to open its third showroom in as many years and its second in Chesterfield in response to growing demand from customers across North Derbyshire.

With an existing showroom in Sheffield and a Honda dealership in Chesterfield the latest acquisition sees Via Moto further boost the business’ North Derbyshire offering.

The news comes just weeks after the company was named Dealer of the Year at the Piaggio Retailer Conference.

Founder Matthew Gilder said the financial boost and geographic expansion was also the catalyst behind the brand’s diversifying product range. Via Moto’s Sheffield branch now stocks the innovative Piaggio Wi-Bike - a brand new electric bike complete with 250W motor, three riding modes, GPS tracker and a satellite anti-theft system.

Matthew Gilder, owner of Via Moto, said: “2015 was a very exciting year for Via Moto with the opening of our first Chesterfield branch, the continued growth and expansion of our Sheffield store and service centre and a significant boost to our turnover.

“We were delighted to receive recognition of all of our hard work when Piaggio named us Dealer of the Year at the annual conference and we are really excited to have been chosen to launch the innovative Wi-Bikes in the region on an exclusive basis.

“Our latest showroom acquisition is a reflection of our plans for continued growth and we are now really looking forward to completing the refurbishment and opening in just a few weeks.”
