Brand new for 2020 SMC launches its race department to support and increase motorcycle racing in the UK. Our aim is to support racers regardless of level or experience with protection, parts, advice and enquiries. We have partnered with RST, Arai and AGV for 2020 to provide custom fitting for all racers. This also means that we now offer made to measure suits that can be customised with sponsor logos, names and numbers.
Additionally, all SMC customers who use the race department will benefit from a FREE service on suits and helmets throughout the year. Including cleaning and minor repair work. If you are unluckily enough to be involved in a crash we will provide crash assessment on leather stitching and scuffs and offer advice for best repair or replacement.
Alongside this, our parts department can specifically support in supplying and fitting R&G crash protection, Evotech parts and scorpion exhausts. We also have access to 1000’s of race tyres, performance parts, oils, filters and accessories. Our qualified technicians are happy to fit and provide technical advice on all our products.
We have teamed up with Forcefield body armour to provide the best sport compression layers and the world’s best back protectors at discounted rates exclusively to SMC customers. Finally, to provide the ultimate protection we have options available for the new RST airbag range with integrated airbag technology. This will be available in the V4.1 Leather airbag suit which can be custom fitted.
For all ACU licence holders, SMC will give the holder 15% off all clothing and helmets when presenting a valid ACU Licence along with discounted prices on parts and accessories. This is only available to the holder and must be checked by a member of staff at point of purchase. For advice on equipment regulations in line with ACU requirements for racing please contact Lucy on 01142525454 (Option 3) or see our website > https://smcbikes.com/contact-us <

Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
