Breaking News. Saxon Motorcycles Under New Management

saxonmotorcyclesThe deal would be signed on Monday. A new Saxon Motorcycles management is taking over with plans to survey all current and potential Saxon owners and current dealers to find out what they like, dislike, and areas that need immediate attention. A complete re-vamp will be done to build a positive Saxon experience and re-inforce the dealers network. Plans would include new product lines with dramatic improvements and extended warranty for all of their products.

Saxon was founded in 2004 by four executives from the residential home building industry. It was established to manufacture production custom motorcycles at a more reasonable price point than currently available in applying professional management and production processes to an industry that is dominated by fragmented manufacturing practices. Saxon operates out of a modern 40,000 square foot manufacturing facility on 9 acres in Casa Grande, Arizona and is equipped to manufacture up to 1200 motorcycles per year. The company has a presence in Europe based in the Netherlands with 11 dealers in different countries. Saxon Motorcycles should send an official press release to the industry on Monday 24th.

    I found out on Monday that this was happening and I was surprised but happy to hear that Saxon is moving forward. It is a good product at a reasonable price. Their customer service is what originally drove me to check them out. Hopefully that continues and improves. Mark Borodkin is very serious about moving the company forward. JR will be in charge of production. It will be interesting to see how this develops and I am glad to see new blood infuse the product. I have not talked with Jerry Petty and don’t know if he will still be involved. This was a complete surprise to me. It is good to hear about something positive in these economic times.

    JR sucks!

    Can someone give a bit of insight as to the the background of Mark Borodkin and a JR? Since there maybe potential new dealers wanting some info, and there is no phone number listed on Saxon’s website to call the factory.

    I can only hope that this will make a difference in my ownership experience. These bafoons that work at Saxon have failed to deliver the most lowerest level of customer service. Peter Tomko (Canadian Dealer Relations Manager) even lied to me that he personal sent my replacement parts to me. Afer several calls and messages he has failed to respond to my warrenty issues and has not responded to my servicing dealer also. Everyone at Saxon doesn’t give a rats ass about their customers or dealers. But I’m sure if I asked about becomming a dealer and wished to place 20 bikes in my showroom they would be all over me like white on rice.

    Hey Sheridan, Dave Milne of Supercycles in Perth imports Saxons.

    Love my 2006 Warlord now that most of the bugs have been taken care of. There is no longer a dealer in the Northern Viginia…..or DC area and thank God I have mechanical ability. I have also had problems getting responses from Saxon and there is no real techanical knowledge (anyone can order parts and bolt them together and sell a product). At least they could list in the owners manuel what componants were used on the bike when it was built, rather than stamping a Saxon logo on everything.

    Is Saxon joining AIH, and others in bankrucy court?

  10. 10 Rando Aug 21st, 2009 at 11:52 am

    Saxon, interested in an extended warranty program? Contact me and we can discuss how thanks

    In the tough economic times, it’s especially sad to see companies fold or sell.
    My deepest best wishes to the new owners of Saxon. Customer service is key.
    Do not be an AIH and drop customer’s warranties or expect your few dealers to eat it for the team.
    Big Dog is thinking right. Gear down and stay alive. Keep up on customer service and weather this
    terrible economic storm. Continue to live to ride…..Have a nice weekend……….

    To “Saxon” writer. Tomko?? Lets see. rep’ing in Canada, for a company that built some of Paul Yaffe’s parts (out of business?), then Titan, (under Donn Proudfoot, ),next was American Ironhorse (before the last buyout), now Saxon. Whoa!! I feel your pain.
    Due Diligence has its advantages!

    ANOTHER MANAGEMENT CHANGE? That has to be at least 10 -12 new owners, managers, sales sluts, and excuses for keeping a under performing company in existemce? Go say hello to AIH, Big Dog and tons others, now just go away!

    Don’t be a Dick!
    You probably have worked for all the above and lost your job with each one!
    Come see me at JP Customs in AK.

  15. 15 Frank H. Aug 26th, 2009 at 10:42 am


    Nope, only worked for one and still do. The truth is painful however isn’t it?

    …… “Come see me at JP Customs in AK” ……. Cheap attempt at free advertisement dude!

    I hope that Saxon customer service improves a little. JR has been very helpful, but I think his plate is full. I second the manual comment. I think they need to list the parts they use and have a more in depth manual. I would love a how to correctly service you Saxon chapter. Having said that I think my 06 Warlord is a great bike. It is a great looking bike and runs very well for being a chopper. Lets get some apparel out too!

    Saxon Motorcycles have made many claims in the recent months…but the leopard only changed it’s spots. This company is no better than it was when it started, quality products my ass. I feel for the owners of Saxon products as you’ll spend more time in the shop than on the road. They continue to hide from existing warranty issues by saying the previous owners will take care of it, that it was part of the conditions of sale…so the “Rep” said, we’re still waiting……
    It is companies like this who have made it difficult for the legit builders to get a foot up. Just the words “Production” and “Custom” have no place in the same sentence. Sure they look all pretty…chromed and shinny but this isn’t what gives you a dependable daily ride. Where was their research and development…yes…it was the customer. They didn’t even keep good records of what or how each bike was built or the components within each. Why in Gods name would you put in a charging system that if just the regulator failed you’d have to replace the complete system??? Not only that but try getting some of these parts. Anyway Saxon your not the only one screwing customers and dealers but quit the BS and claims that your better and more improved. One day…but unfortunately not soon enough you’ll all crawl back under the rock you came from…….

    Can I just say I 2nd your comments!
    How can Saxon be sold and then just sweep us
    customers under the rug and pretend we don’t exist?
    I bought a Saxon, not an RPM Holding or a Street Steel Powersport!
    Step up Saxon and defend the brand and take care of us customers!
    Since there are no dealers left, tell me who to take my bike to?
    I bought a piece of junk!
