Horton Motorcycles is a well-established family business, owned by successful businessman Nicolas Horton and his son Jacob Horton, a fully-trained qualified mechanic. Nick and Jacob both share a passion for motorcycles and initially launched Horton Motorcycles as a father and son business with a repair shop. They soon expanded, employing Sam Bentley as Showroom Manager and opened their showroom on Boldmere Road. With the ability to offer motorcycle sales and motorcycle servicing this increased business in their repair shop and this has now become their Maintenance Centre.

As a family that has a passion for motorcycles (Sam included of course) we have established Horton Motorcycles as the place to go for low cc motorcycles and scooters in Birmingham. In fact we have become very well known locally but we also sell and deliver bikes nationwide to very happy customers who have given us a lot of amazing feedback.

We specialise in Lexmoto motorcycles and Lexmoto scooters. Lexmoto is an up and coming brand of Chinese motorcycle that has a lot to offer UK the market. These bikes are very good quality and excellent value for money. They have some brilliant designs and up-to-date features which is winning them an ever growing fan base in the UK. As an example of their quality the new Lexmoto Venom was the first Motorcycle to be awarded the Canton Fair design award. Our comprehensive range of Lexmoto motorcycles makes us one of the UK’s leading dealers with bikes that are perfect for new or young riders and people who are coming back to the thrill of riding.

Jacob Horton has a level 3 diploma in motor vehicle maintenance and repair. He has loved bikes all his life and has been riding since he was 17. His current bike is a 2014 Kawasaki Z800 that he often goes traveling on with his Dad, Nick Horton, to places as far away as Poland. Having always had a massive interest in bikes it was natural for Jacob to study motorcycle mechanics at college. His training and years of experience around bikes is essential in his position as Head Mechanic at Horton Motorcycles.

Sam Bentley became a friend of the Horton family as he shared their passion for all things bike. Sam studied electrical electronic engineering at college for 3 years. With Horton Motorcycles expanding Sam was soon helping out and as the work load kept getting larger Jacob decided to ask Sam if he wanted to come and work with him full-time as Showroom Manager, and Sam has been an integral part of the team and Horton family ever since.
