World-class craftsmanship, innovation and design using advanced materials and engineering technology in power sports is displayed at Wanaka’s newest destination store Wanaka Powersports.

Stocking some of the world’s most advanced motorbikes, specialist boats, power water craft and outdoor equipment, the store is a mecca for powersports enthusiasts.

“We are dedicated to providing top end ranges that are not necessarily seen anywhere else plus everything in between. It’s a friendly and approachable show room and retail store with full workshop facilities and a real destination for anyone into motorbikes and water sports,” says Wanaka Powersports general manager, Daniel Irwin.

Located in Wanaka’s new Three Parks development, the state-of-the-art showroom features leading motorbike brands Polaris, MV Agusta, Royal Enfield, Gas Gas, Bellini, Peugeot Motocycles and Ubco electric bikes.

The company is also the exclusive New Zealand stockist of Austrian made Belassi jet skis and Nautique ski and wake board boats from Florida.

“Our range is purposefully broad and includes a full range of accessories. Customers can test ride the bike or jet ski of their dreams or purchase the bike they have always wanted to own,” he says.

“We have an extensive workshop facility and support service as back up for customers. Our workshop services all type of bikes from farm bikes and off road to racing models and one-off bespoke road bikes.  We are in a privileged position here to work on some very high-end bikes that reside in Wanaka and Queenstown.”

There has been significant growth since opening the store and the business has already acquired new and larger premises.

“My own business, Wanaka Motorbike Centre, has been incorporated into Wanaka Powersports which has now upscaled massively both in retail and the workshop,” says Daniel.

“It is fun being part of the bike community, assisting people to get going and provide different options, brands and equipment. A fully dedicated motorbike shop is something that Wanaka has needed for some time. There are a lot of bike riders here and in Queenstown and it’s great to be part of making it happen.”
