In 1999, Ken Wahlster started a business of motorcycle parts operating out of his home. Ken named the business BikeBandit after his favorite black pet dog - Bandit. From the first year, Ken adopted a business strategy of collaborating with the leading powersports dealers of America. BikeBandit initially formed a partnership with House of Motorcycles’ family of dealerships, which include top brands like Kawasaki, Honda, Yamaha, Polaris, and Suzuki. Within a few years, the company formed strong business relationship with several other motorcycle dealerships. These collaborations with the top motorcycle dealerships enabled BikeBandit to offer Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts at an unbeatable price. BikeBandit soon became a popular motorcycle parts superstore retailer and the business was moved to 107,000 square foot building. Over the next few years, the company started expanding its product inventory to include gears, tires aftermarket parts, accessories for scooters, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, and personal watercraft. In 2014, the company entered a partnership with South Bay Motorsports to further expand its product line and to reach out a wider customer base.
BikeBandit has experienced remarkable growth since its inception, and over the years, the company has established itself as a leading online store for powersports parts, accessories, gear and tires.
