Established at its current location in 1981 as a Suzuki motorcycle dealer, JT Cycle is rich in local motorcycle history dating back to 1947. The existing facility once served as a franchised dealer for Matchless, AJS, Royal Enfield, Triumph, BMW, and Honda. Currently, we are proud to offer motorcycles, scooters, UTVs, and power equipment from Husqvarna, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Ariens, Gravely, Genuine Scooters, Simplicity, and Beta Motorcycles.
The JT Cycle facility holds the oldest Michigan class "A" motorcycle dealer license in Calhoun County.
Jerry Merritt, the founder, was involved in all aspects of the motorcycle business dating back to 1957. He started at Van’s Bike Shop as a mechanic and then went on to Gibbon's Bike Shop where he worked in Parts and Sales. In 1975, Jerry opened his own Honda dealership, MP Cycle in Albion. He later returned to Battle Creek and established JT Cycle.
Over the years JT Cycle has developed the reputation as the local motorcycle shop where honesty, integrity, and customer service are more than just words, but a commitment. Many cycle shops have come and gone since JT Cycle opened for business in 1981, but we will be here in the long run, offering our customers what they have come to expect: honest, courteous, and a knowledgeable staff and outstanding customer service.
