Service around Erzurum


Does somebody know a good address/workshop where they can change our tires and do some service work on our Honda Transalp?

Thank you

There is no Official Honda Motocycle service in Erzurum but some private services in industrial areas..
Official Honda Bike service closest to you is in Trabzon.
İletişim // Honda Çimart Motor

Better ask Honda automobile service which is also in the industrial area.
Sure they will recommend the best solution..

Sanayi Sitesi, also road destination sign in Turkey means industrial area,generally a bit outside city centers and several bike and tyre services available in each of them..

Honda Çebi Plaza
Tortum yolu üzeri,
Sanayi Siteleri Karşısı

Fax : (0 442 ) 243 29 29
Email...: servis@cebiotomotiv.com

(take the D-950 road from city center to Tortum..)

Hope helps.
All the best.

Thanks for asking.
Due to some problems and with our Turkmenistan Visa we started with a delay and probably have to wait a couple of days in Ankara to solve our Visa requests. I will try to service our bike in Ankara to win some time.
