About us


Before we get ahead of ourselves, we want to welcome you to Ekerold Yamaha, and hope to meet you in person soon.

We appreciate you taking the time today to visit our web site. Our goal is to give you an interactive tour of our new and used inventory, as well as to provide you with technical information and pricing. The search for your next Motorcycle is filled with high expectations, and at Ekerold Yamaha, we believe that as your dealership it is our duty to meet and exceed those expectations.

Ekerold Yamaha was founded and established in February 1984 in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal by two brothers, Jon and Peter Ekerold. They shared a life-long passion for the sport, being brought up in an enthusiastic motorcycling family and who were both established in the road racing community. Peter Ekerold claimed the South African Road Racing 250cc Championship in 1979 and in 1980 Jon Ekerold won a world championship as a privateer.

In 1988 Jon sold his shares to his brother Peter, who continued running the business very successfully from 303 Greyling Street for many years. The business was sold to Chris Malan in 2002 where the same work ethic and passion for the motorcycling industry continued to grow and flourish Ekerold Yamaha.

In the beginning of 2007 Ekerold Yamaha moved premises from Greyling Street to 340 Victoria Road. The new location was more than double in size, supporting a massive workshop, modern architecture, ample space for the spares department and lovely secure parking for customers. Ekerold Yamaha are an authorised Yamaha dealer for Motorcycles and quads, water vehicles, golf cars and power products.

We are constantly placed in the Top 5 in the South African Yamaha Dealer Network.
