Las Vegas bike shop captures fans across the country

October 13, 2019 By BBV Powersports

This local bike shop powerhouse has a passion for riding that stretches well beyond the borders of the city and captures the wild hearts of fans across the country.

BBV Powersports has been drawing a large and loyal fan base since opening in early 2017. They quickly outgrew the 2,000-square-foot store and opened in an adjacent larger space the following year that quadrupled the shop. BBV Powersports recently won Best of Las Vegas due to the outpouring of support from bike enthusiasts and professional riders.

“We personalize each customer experience and truly serve each customer individually to enhance their experience,” said Eric Jacobsen, owner/operator with Shiko Ozana. “We offer services to allow our customers' needs and dreams come to reality, regardless of what year their bikes are.”

The main focus of the veteran and family-owned and operated business is the joy of riding on the open road. The bike shop boasts the largest selection of pre-owned parts for most makes and models in the valley.

“We offer more options for customers for financing the products we sell, work on and service,” Jacobsen said. “It’s the personal experience that is more important than your credit score. We help people find and finance the right ride or customize their own.”

From vintage bikes to the latest rides, BBV Powersports carries units for every enthusiast, regardless of budget. The passion for riding is in every part of BBV Powersports’ business, from the staff at the front desk to the highly trained mechanics.

“If a customer gets into an accident or a bike needs serious repair, we will pick the unit up and provide a loaner motorcycle while the motorcycle is being repaired so the rider is always on two (wheels),” he said. “We handle all the insurance and warranty work on behalf of the customer.”

They offer discounts for all Armed Forces, current or veterans, as well as first responders and patched members of motorcycle clubs, a BBV touch that brings customers from around the country.

“We look at all the clubs for what they truly are, which is family,” Jacobsen said. “Motorcycle clubs do so much for our community that never get recognized and have a negative stigma. All the clubs that work with and support us do so many charity rides for fallen or injured riders, feed the homeless, sponsor unprivileged schools, Toys for Tots and so much more.”

BBV Powersports is known for bucking the modern trend of only working on bikes that are less than a decade old.

“One of our business partners, Al Abgrab, has been a lead mechanic in the city of Las Vegas for the last 20 years and has only hired factory trained O.E.M certified staff in Harley Davidson, Indian, Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki,” Jacobsen said. “So that the BBV stamp of approval is done with confidence.”

BBV is expanding its fan base to include more women who love the joy of riding. Currently, two women-only motorcycle clubs buy from BBV Powersports for the skilled service and experience they receive.

The Ladyz motorcycle club travels from Arizona and California to purchase new bikes and get their units serviced by us,” Jacobsen said. “A member, Gina T, not only bought three bikes from us but loved us so much she now works here at BBV.”

I have been with BBV since DAY 1 and have been fortunate to see their growth. Eric sold me a bike at another shop and was such a good human being we remained friends outside. When he spoke of opening his own place I was there! From the 3 a.m. late nights to the sleeping there so they wouldn’t miss a customer in the morning; these guys care like no other and constantly go above and beyond to help riders regardless of the situation. (We have picked up bikes in other states after hours) They have the BEST labor rates and Techs working there, ONLY place I trust my bike I’ve gotten ALL of my work done at the shop from basic maintenance to a full rebuild after an accident. Al has done an excellent job since the day they infused him and is my go to for ANYTHING! (literally) lol Shiko brought his extensive knowledge of business and implementation rounding out this A-Team trio he allows people to do their job and fully supports his staff and crew. There is Nothing but respect and love here for the sport and; I AM PROUD to call these people Family!

I’ve followed BBV’s story from its humble beginnings, and can’t say how overjoyed I am to see them succeed. The owner, Eric, is an incredible person, and their whole team is a refreshing change of pace from the typical experience one has at a “dealership”. Is somewhere I know I’ll feel welcomed, and it really represents the essence of an often misunderstood lifestyle. Family, fun, freedom. Thankful that they’re receiving the attention and recognition they deserve.
