Wilks Penny are Motorbikes and Motorbikes are their life.

We don’t do mediocre, we DO AWESOME!


Family owned and operated, Wilks Penny Motorcycles opened in Te Awamutu in May 2015. It was a lifelong dream of Off Road Motor cycling champions Ilana Wilks and Mark Penny who have worked and competed in the industry most of their lives. Both Ilana and Mark are Te Awamutu locals with Ilana growing up in Te Awamutu, attending the local College and both working for 15 years at Wilksbrooke Motors, founded by Ilana’s family over 37 years ago.

When it comes to Motorbikes Mark, Ilana and the team are debatably the best in the industry. With Motocross champions and lead technicians that other dealers ring for answers it’s pretty evident that Wilks Penny offers something very special and customers know they are getting the best advice and recommendations.


Establishing Wilks Penny in 2015 has been an amazing ride for our team. We continue to outperform other Suzuki dealers nationwide month after month, claiming a few more Number One titles to add to the collection among the team.

At Wilks Penny Motorcycles we are arguably the most knowledge in the industry with many of our clients choosing to come back because of the years of experience we all have.

We are the Motorbike specialists and stockists of Suzuki, Kawasaki & Beta.
