The Richmond way seems to be to ride your bike, whether motorcycle or scooter, until it just won’t go anymore. Maintenance? Washing it off once in a while is good enough, right? Not quite. If you want your ride to be reliable, there’s going to be routine maintenance involved to insure that. As you pack on the miles, there are inevitably going to be repairs, even if it’s replacing a flat tire or adjustments to your brake and clutch cables, having a shop you can trust to take care of you and your bike is important.
Here at Moto Richmond, we strive everyday to be the best motorcycle and scooter dealership in Virginia and beyond. That means we do a lot more than just selling motorcycles and scooters. Our service and maintenance department is here to help you keep your bike running in top-notch condition.
We service and maintain all of the motorcycles and scooters we sell, Triumph, Moto Guzzi, Zero, Vespa, Piaggio and Genuine. Whether you need and oil change, a valve adjustment, new tires or a complete drivetrain overhaul, from head light to tail light, we’ve got you and your ride covered. We’ll keep you on the road and make sure we let you know if we come across anything that is going to need attention in the future. We’ll help to insure there aren’t any unwanted surprises and we can help you set up a maintenance schedule that works best for you, your ride and your wallet. Where those brands are concerned, if your bike needs it, we can do it.
We can also perform basic maintenance and repair on many scooters and motorcycles we don’t sell. If you have a Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, BMW, Ducati, Harley Davidson, or any other kind of Japanese or European motorcycle that needs some attention, give us a call or send us an email and we’ll get you scheduled at your earliest convenience. We are occasionally limited by the need for specific dealer-only tools and software, but we’ll let you know this if that’s the case when you contact us.
Our labor rate is $110 per hour. In most cases, we waive the first hour of diagnostic time should you decide that you want to have your bike serviced or repaired by our technicians. Beyond that hour, we do charge for diagnostic time.
One thing we can not stress enough is to MAKE AN APPOINTMENT! The sooner you call, the sooner we can get you scheduled, order parts where necessary and make sure that you and your bike are separated for the absolute least amount of time possible. Call or email and we can get you set up with an appointment at the earliest opening in our schedule that’s convenient for you.
We are also able to provide pick up and delivery services. The following list of prices is for the areas we most often provide this service. If you’re not in one of these places, give us a call or send us an email and we can let you know what we would charge to pick up or deliver your bike back to you.

We can also help with various forms of customization. If you’re looking for accessories to make your motorcycle or scooter more well suited to how you use it, we can help you find what you need and we can install it. If you’re looking for ways to make your ride more comfortable, we can usually help with that too. It may be a new seat, new grips, new handlebars, new pegs or anything in between. Give us a good idea of what kind of discomfort you’re experiencing and we can make a recommendation and proceed from there. We can also do suspension adjustments (when the bike has any level of adjustable suspension) so that you can get the experience you are looking for from your bike. If you want a more cushy suspension for a more luxurious ride, we can help you figure that out. If you want a more performance oriented suspension so that the bike is communicating every inch of road your covering because you like to ride more aggressively, we can help with that too. Are you thinking about a fender eliminator kit for a cleaner look? Let us show you some options. Considering some LED light additions so that you’re more visible to other vehicles? We have plenty of experience with that as well.
All of that being said, we do not offer any maintenance or repair services for Chinese scooters. This includes, but is not limited to Quing Qui, TaoTao, Rocketa, Lifan, Geely, Keeway, and VIP brand scooters. We do not have a reliable source for quality parts, parts specifications, or any technical documentation for these vehicles, and are therefore unable to provide the level of service we pride ourselves on.
