Cycle Works Motorsports is a powersports dealership serving the Edmonton and Alberta area, offering motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles, and power equipment. Their inventory specializes in KTM, Husqvarna, Indian Motorcycle, and Polaris with units fresh from the manufacturer’s warehouse as well as pre-owned units.
Cycle Works also sells spare parts, merchandise, and apparel on their sister site Motorsports HQ. Here, products are categorized according to what vehicle you ride or own, making it convenient to select what you need.
We like CycleWorks because you can trade in your vehicle as an option when purchasing a vehicle, although, you’ll need to list all the added or modified components. After submitting your request, it will be evaluated, and you’ll be sent an assessment on the value of your trade-in.
CycleWorks also offers financing options, wherein you’ll have to freely submit to have your credit history evaluated, which is applicable for both new and used vehicles.
Aside from being a dealership, they can repair and maintain your vehicle with trained technicians that specialize in the brands that they offer. They can also service other makes and models of virtually any vehicle, whether it’s for pleasure riding, professional racing, or off-road.
If you’re looking for a dealer specializing in Indian Motorcycles, Cycle Works is one of the best choices in Edmonton. Linda Watson shares her experience:
“Jay and Cheryl are the best when it comes to finding and purchasing at Cycle Works. All the staff, from sales, to parts, to clerks, to shop have been fantastic to me and I would recommend Cycle Works/Indian Motorcycle of Edmonton, and most of all Jay Padilla, to anyone interested in Indian products or just bike gear.”
Sharleen Patterson, another satisfied customer, also writes:
“Jay Padilla started me on a used bike, less than a year later I was back to buy my forever bike…a 2018 Indian Chief in smokey grey…..and I love it. I no longer need to be concerned with comfort, speed, or keeping up with my friends. Jay, Cheryl Wood, and Lisa Lip, along with the service staff were amazing and got me on the road for my first ever long haul trip down to Montana. The bike performed exceptionally. The head turning and comments from people as I traveled was a “feel good” experience I will never forget. Would highly recommend this dealership for all your riding needs!!!”

Alberta Cycle is the oldest dealership in powersports vehicles, first established in 1927. Although ownership has changed hands in 2017, the legacy of this iconic business still continues today.
They have a wide inventory offering different brands, although they specialize in Arctic Cat, Suzuki, Piaggio, Vespa, and Yamaha. Whether it’s a new motorcycle or a pre-owned ATV, you’ll find something worth perusing here at Alberta Cycle.
We like Alberta Cycle because they offer a wide and specialized selection of tires. On Saturdays, they even have a special “rapid tire service”, which performs quick assessments, repairs, and replacements on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Buying pre-owned motorcycles at Alberta Cycle is one of our top choices because not only will you be able to thoroughly inspect each unit, but it can also be serviced upon request before pick-up as well! We like this offer because some of the photos of their used inventory are stock images and not the actual vehicle that’s for sale.
Repairs, maintenance and even customizing your bike afterward can also be done at Alberta Cycle, as they have a varied inventory of parts and accessories for your vehicle. The best part is if they don’t have it, they’ll find it for you.
One last thing to consider before choosing Alberta Cycle is that they offer to haul your bike at no extra cost if it’s stalled and needs repair. They’ll even move it in an enclosed trailer to ensure it’s protected from the elements during transport.
Alberta Cycle has been around since 1927 for a good reason, echoed in the feedback provided by customers like Dan Bradshaw who says:
“Best price, best service: Alberta Cycle had the lowest price in Alberta for the Suzuki street bike I was looking for. Had the color I wanted, did the purchase over the phone and email, no problems at all. Easy as can be. If you want low prices, good service, easy deal, this is the place to go.”
Trevor Chepelsky likes the extra community work that Alberta Cycle sponsors, as he writes:
“Friendly and knowledgeable staff, great prices, wide variety of items, and excellent service. They even have motorcycle group rides every second Thursday afternoon (~7pm) in the spring and summer, served with a BBQ before you head out. I couldn’t be happier with them.”

Argyll Motorsports & Marine claims to be Edmonton’s largest Motorsports & Marine dealership, and rightfully so. They have over 20 brands of different vehicles ranging from a Godfrey Pontoon Boat to luxury speed demons from Ducati.
You’ll find a unit here worth considering, whether you are looking for a new or used motorcycle, ATV, UTV, Side by Side, Boat, snowmobile, snow bike, E-Bike, or generator. They may have changed ownership in 2014, but they continue to provide the wide array of products they are known for.
Some of the brands they carry include Argo XTV, BMW Motorrad, Bulls E-Bikes, Stacyc eBikes, Stryder Bikes, Suzuki, Triumph, and Yamaha, just to name a few. As if offering multiple options for vehicles wasn’t enough, they carry over 20 brands of apparel and merchandise as well.
If you haven’t noticed, Argyll Motor Sports is all about diversity and options, and they also carry thousands of ATV and motorcycle parts in their online store. The best part is you can have your vehicle outfitted with the parts you purchase as well, and if it’s not listed, they’ll find it for you.
We like shopping for pre-owned motorcycles here because they provide actual photos of their inventory and not stock images. They also tag vehicles with low mileage with a marker to grab your attention, making it easier to select vehicles that have fewer kilometres travelled than others.
Argyll Motor Sports offers special winter deals to service your vehicles, including a special winter preparation inspection based on their customized 50-point system. This assessment also provides a digital reading of your battery usage and comes with a complimentary wash.
Argyll Motorsports takes pride in its wide selection of products. Angela Lee was extremely happy with the varied options, as she shares:
“Had multiple excellent shopping experiences at Argyll. There is a huge selection of women’s motorcycle gear, and very happy to report that it isn’t ALL pink. In fact, most of it ISN’T pink, which was pretty exciting…Very comfortable shopping experience!”
Marlen Padberg is another satisfied client. He writes:
“Great service, great selection! BMW, Ducati, Triumph, and a wide ranging selection of used bikes, parts, service department.”

Echo Cycle has recently changed ownership and is now solely focused on selling pre-owned units, aftermarket accessories, and used parts. They also offer an assortment of services exclusive for motorcycles.
We find it curious that they sell a variety of odds and ends in their inventory, which include lawnmowers, chainsaws, and grass trimmers. We feel that it might be better to sell these under an entirely different moniker so as not to leave their customers confused.
Despite their odd selection of random inventory items, Echo Cycle makes up for it in the services they provide. Their experienced journeyman technicians can perform a thorough inspection of your imported or salvaged vehicle to check that it meets Alberta’s requirements.
Their inspections are not limited to Edmonton either since they can travel out of Alberta for a cost of $220. Take note that they do charge a premium for salvage unit inspections as well as a separate fee for assessing the safety of your vehicles.
What we like best at Echo Cycle is their Dyno Facility in which they can assess any problems with your bike with a special dynamometer. Your vehicle can be diagnosed in a shorter time to detect problems in the engine and drivetrain without needing to go out into the open road.
They can also remap or reprogram your engine control unit and tweak it for the best performance. We like this service because it’s especially useful when you’ve just customized a motorcycle or have purchased a pre-owned one.
Echo Cycle is efficient at providing parts and accessories for your vehicle. A happy customer, T.A. Wayne, shares his experience:
“Great place!! Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Lotsa Triumph swag!
They were more than willing to accommodate me with the parts I needed for my bike and notified me via email the minute that they arrived.”
Jordan Long had his bike serviced at Echo Cycle’s Dyno Facility. He was extremely pleased with the services as he writes:
“I have nothing but good things to say about my experiences here. The service staff are helpful and knowledgeable. I’ve had my bike serviced and dynoed there and was pleased with the results.”

Now, it’s time to take a trip to the dark side with After Dark Motorcycles, which according to its owners, was founded “under the cover of darkness”. If their interesting profile bio doesn’t get you curious to browse their inventory, perhaps their expertise in building, customizing and repairing Harley-Davidson motorcycles will.
If you’re looking for a new unit, this is not the place to get it. However, if you’re looking for a quality pre-owned Harley, After Dark Motorcycles is the place to be since you can even schedule a test ride to make sure everything is in order.
Whether you’re looking for a bagger, chopper, standard, or customized motorcycle, what makes this dealership worth visiting is its service, which is the root of its business. From a basic oil change to a full overhaul, After Dark Motorcycles is a fully Licensed Inspection Facility and can perform Out of Province (OPI) and Salvage Inspections as well.
With 10 working benches and their own 35-point inspection system, the staff will ensure your ride is operating at its peak. They can also power up and upgrade your bike up to a full engine overhaul with their specialized in-house Dyno Tuning Facility.
After Dark Motorcycles can fabricate any custom part for any bike, with tools such as plasma cutters and a CNC Mill. If you’ve bought a part that doesn’t seem to fit, they can modify it with precision to customize your newly bought pre-owned bike.
After Dark Motorcyles is known for its repair services and pre-owned bikes. Jeff Temreck experienced first-hand their excellent service as he writes:
“Staff members Excellent…They give 110% and try to accommodate all Customers The folks work very hard to meet your needs…Good assortment of new and used parts…Also they sell wicked used bikes”
Silvio Mancin was fortunate enough to deal directly with the owner on his custom bike, as he shares:
“Service second to none! If you want custom work on your bike in Edmonton, this is the place…The workmanship is outstanding and the owner Cordell is very Knowledgeable and has a very good sense of style to help make the right choices for your bike. A job well done!”
