The Bike Village grand opening party – 29 September 2018, Buzz Shopping Centre, Fourways
This Saturday, 29 September, The Buzz Shopping Centre in Fourways will be hosting the opening of The Bike Village, a joint venture between Bike Tyre Warehouse, Race Shop and Vaperite that are all opening stores in the centre giving bike enthusiasts an all-over accessory and apparel experience.
More so, Bike Tyre Warehouse will be celebrating becoming a Pirelli Preferred Partner Store, a prestigious achievement whereby they become direct partners with Pirelli in Italy. This concept is not new, with various retailers and businesses overseas becoming Pirelli Preferred Partners, but this is the first time we are seeing it in Africa.
To celebrate this opening, The Bike Village will be hosting an opening party with a DJ, and drinks and food being served by the neighbouring ladies from Hooters. The party starts at 8am and will be continuing until 8pm with free entrance to all. More than food, drinks and music, the three stores will be offering various never to be repeated specials on various products. The Bike Show TV will be there in the morning pointing cameras and talking their usual rubbish.
Below is a run down of the three businesses:
Bike Tyre Warehouse
“We will be opening our new Boutique Fitment Centre as the first Pirelli Preferred Partner Store in Africa,” commented Bruce de Kock, the man behind the motorcycle tyre giant, “not just because we are the biggest buyer of Pirelli rubber but because we are rated as one of the top technical service providers globally according to Pirelli’s Test Division Italy after our co-operation at the international launch of the Diablo Rosso Cora 11 at Kyalami, which was the first international Pirelli launch in Africa in the history of the company. Their main concern when deciding on South Africa as a potential launch venue was the technical support and BTW delivered putting us on the global map.”
“The BTW Group are not just tyre fitment & retailers, the group are international tyre traders & tyre developers, so customers benefit from our extensive technical tyre knowledge. We are hands down the industry leaders in the SADEC region.
This is why the CEO Pirelli Global is out for the opening; this is totally unheard of he has not attended openings in Europe with regards to M/C businesses, so a big feather in Bike Shows cap to secure an interview with this man who has the final say in all sponsorship regarding WSBK and all related Pirelli sponsored racing.”
Race Shop Fourways
Race Shop Vaal, Race Shop Mobile and CIT/Husqvarna Pretoria now add Race Shop Fourways to their motorcycle accessories and apparel family.
“This completes our reach and ability to serve the greater biking, racing and leisure community” says Ryan Shapiro who further establishes himself and the Race Shop Group as an accessory giant. “Our promise and commitment to our customers is the highest level of service, honesty and accountability.”

Come and enjoy good food, great products and a shopping experience, along with honest advice and specialised service – all in one neat Hub.”
