Our business philosophy is to cultivate lasting relationships, friendships with our customers which adds to their riding fun and sharing the passion just adds to the fun.

Everybody’s smiling at Classic Motor Sports in Traverse City: customers, employees, everybody! If you’re not a motorsport enthusiast, you need to visit us. You’ll become one. If you’re already an enthusiast, you’ll immediately be amongst like-minded friends!

We’re different from many motorsport dealers:
We have a huge selection of new vehicles from Polaris®, Kawasaki®, Yamaha, SSR, and KYMCO. We offer test rides of near all off road vehicles to take the uncertainty of selecting the best brand and model for you. In the unlikely event we don’t have your first choice of model and color, we’ll get it for you often within just a day or two. We won’t push you into something just because it’s in stock. You deserve the vehicle that is best for your intended riding!

Our used vehicle selection is fantastic. If you prefer to buy used, there’s a good chance we have what you’re looking for, or will soon have it. Tell us what you’re looking for, and we’ll contact you when we’re about to get one. Many of our used vehicles sell before they’re in our showroom. Talk with us so you can have first dibs!

We offer financing for nearly everything we sell. We have a dedicated person whose only job is to stay informed of financing offerings from many local and national financial institutions. Whether you want a low monthly payment, low interest rate or have a challenging financial situation, we can usually meet your financial goals. Near all require no down payment. For many customers, financing is a major cost of a new vehicle. You will save money financing with us.

We take trades. In fact we like trades! Our philosophy is that anything that we can legally sell, we’ll take in trade: any brand, any vehicle and any time of year. We’ll take in trade boats, cars, trucks in addition to motorcycles, ATV’s, side-by-sides, personal watercraft, scooters and snowmobiles. That makes it so much easier to dispose of the vehicle you have, and less costly for you to get the vehicle you want!

Our Service Department is filled with factory trained technicians with decades of experience. We have technicians that have attained the highest level of training and have achieved the highest level of certification offered by each manufacturer we represent. From assembly and prep of new vehicles to in depth maintenance to the most complex repairs, it’s all done by factory trained technicians to minimize your vehicle’s problems and maximize your fun time.

We offer parts, accessories and riding gear from many sources, not just the manufacturers we represent. Often Polaris®, Kawasaki®, Yamaha, SSR, and KYMCO offer the best choices, but not always. Since we’re enthusiasts that ride, we can offer expert advice on replacement parts, performance modifications and safe, stylish riding gear for kids through adults. We know a lot about riding from first-hand experience which avoids having to experiment yourself, keeps your riding fun and will save you money in the long run.
