Avicious Cycle

Just wanted to post about my recent purchase experience at Avicious Cycle. Figured I'd put it in the Canada thread since it is a Canadian retailer for Twisted Throttle

I ordered up some GIVI sidecases, racks and crashbars for my Vee. I initially inquired about availability and all my emails were returned quickly. I was traveling to Toronto on business and wanted to drive to their store to pick everything up, so I got in touch with them about a week in advance to make sure everything was available. The side racks and crashbars were not in stock, but they ordered them up, and everything was waiting for me when I showed up at the store. Pricing was excellent, actually cheaper than what Twisted Throttle was advertising.

Friendly staff, nice little showroom about an hours drive on the 401 from Pearson airport.

Highly recommend them.

Bought items from them before, I agree with you on service and also find their prices are lower then other shops

I have purchased some items from them as well. Although stock took a little longer than expected with some items, the overall service was excellent. They are always the first place I look to for Twisted stuff in Canada.

Dual Sport Plus is also another excellent choice.

I Have bought a fair amount from them and had it shipped. They have been good people to deal with and seem to try their best to take care of customers.

Competitive pricing and good service. I will continue to support them with my hard earned bucks.

I'm pretty sure everything that is on my bike, that wasn't there when I bought it, I got at AVC. They have been good and it is a pretty nice location to ride to.

Cheers!

I have purchased most of my mods from them. I find that they don't carry a great amount of inventory and often have to order what I need. This is the cheapest place I have found in my area to buy tires - just wish they would offer an install service for the tires. Eric, the owner is very knowledgeable and will go out of his way to help you.

Although I have never gone to them for tires, I bought other stuff from them at a show in Ottawa a few years ago. My brother has ordered from them. Good prices on much of their stuff. Helpful and friendly.
