TeamMoto Australia is easily one of the largest motorcycle dealerships in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, but are they any good? Good question.
You see – they’re not the only shop within most city areas. Take example the Gold Coast. You’ve actually got a few choices there and some people even make the trip up to Brisbane or just order online.
But…that costs time and sometimes more money. We decided to write this unbiased TeamMoto review based on our opinion and we don’t have a commercial or business relationship with this dealership.
Let’s jump in.
TeamMoto Australia Review
Australia is lucky to have both independent stores and national motorcycle networks.
TeamMoto in Nerang, like most other cities, actually has two dealerships where they split Yamaha and Honda 50/50, while also serving the BMW riders too. We’ve been to both so we can fairly provide our experiences plus what you should be looking for.
Whether that’s a new road bike or trail bike, or simply some gear or parts, researching and knowing who your dealer is and what they provide is quite important. For that reason, we do recommend that you read online reviews first.
When we analyze Google, we can see that they’re averaging 4.5 stars. This is reasonably good as the industry average sits at 4.2 stars. With any company – they’re not perfect but clearly do the best that they can. There are also some negative riders out there – perhaps you know some?!
When they started
On one hand, supporting a new motorcycle dealership is a great idea to help the little guy. On the other hand, will they still be there in 6 months time? Something to really think about.
TeamMoto has been in business for many years. Based on this, they have the experience to serve customers around the entire east coast including Gold Coast and even Logan areas. Even those on the ADV circuit do drop-in for crucial parts or servicing.
One thing we have noticed in the industry is that some dealerships start out alright, become strong then let their customer service slip in the later years. You then have potential customers asking in Facebook groups if they’re any good, and it’s evident that they haven’t kept up.
It appears that TeamMoto is still running at full throttle. Why? They have almost a dozen stores in Australia and have the marketing power behind them to keep things strong.
Social media channels
Everyone these days is on Facebook and Instagram so you’d expect motorcycle stores to do the same. Surprisingly, not all of them are on to it! Even if they are, the traction is minimal.
As we’ve just touched on marketing power, TeamMoto is established on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. In terms of YouTube, they have been running this for 6 years now:
This is at a national level as opposed to cities specifically. Some of the stores run their own social channels though traction on those is much more limited.
There are certainly alternatives out there and as we’ve said, we’re very much unbiased with our review of TeamMoto as we wanted an independent opinion. You won’t find our products inside their stores *yet* 🙂
One option is the well-known Peter Stevens dealership. Most people are well aware that they are the biggest competitor to TeamMoto.
Another one is online stores. You can buy gear and parts on eBay or simply use a known platform like MX Store or AdventureMoto which we’ve also evaluated.
When it comes to online purchasing, just remember the time it often takes for delivery. Most people want to skip the wait, buy their gear and get back to twisting that throttle. For that reason, it’s hard to skip past TeamMoto for their experience and parts on hand.
Pros and Cons
Considering ordering from TeamMoto? Let’s look at the pros and cons for a moment:
|Australia-wide network||Less haggle room|
|Decades of experience||Stores can get busy|
|Can get parts from other stores||Used bikes are sold quickly|
|Formal complaints process|
|Great customer reviews|
|Expansive gear list|
|No Chinese bikes|
Keep that in mind when you’re going to a store. Most of them also have lots of parking so if you need to bring in a trailer, then there’s room to park and reverse it.
Consider there are so many stores across Australia, let’s help you get in touch with your local store:

Melbourne TeamMoto reviews
In Melbourne the TeamMoto stores can be a hit and miss affair. Some have very positive reviews while others have quite a few complaints. Often there is a change in management so what you see online may not be as bad as comments online.
In Epping you’ll have Honda, Kawasaki and KTM at 342 Cooper Street. Then head to Frankston for BMW, Honda and Yamaha which are at 590 Frankston-Dandenong Rd.
Sunshine Coast TeamMoto
There is only two dealers on the Sunshine Coast. At 100 Maroochydore Road there is Sunshine Coast Yamaha while Maroochydore Kawasaki (22 Maroochydore Road) serves up the green machines.
Head to 301 Mulgrave Road, Bundalow for Cairns Yamaha. It’s the only TeamMoto store around the city.
TeamMoto clearly has stores across the eastern states, with the exception of Adelaide and Tasmania. Perth and Darwin also miss out.
However – they routinely do sell parts as a factory dealer as well as ship bikes sight-unseen interstate at competitive freight rates. Each store is different so give ’em a call and see if they can help you.
