South Bay Powersports is driven by passion and dedication to provide their customers with the highest quality service. The company’s relentless attitude towards quality and efficiency enables them to pursue their goals and be the best they can be. From the start, Steve and Brendan Behar, father-son duo and co-owners of South Bay Powersports, have put in countless hours of hard work to build the motorcycle shop from the ground up. Both natives of Hawthorne, they agreed that establishing a motorcycle shop that encompassed their shared ambitions and values was something that they were truly passionate about.
In March 2016, they made their dreams become a reality and South Bay Powersports was born. In 2017, Brendan had the opportunity to work on supercross rider, Jeff Alessi’s, motorcycle for the Supercross season. This extraordinary event allowed Brendan to gain experience working in the pits, which he had always dreamed of doing.
Brendan, head mechanic at South Bay Powersports, graduated from Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI) and he is a certified mechanic that takes pride in his work. After graduating from MMI, Brendan worked at a major dealer for several years, which instilled many of the skills he utilizes today.
From the day South Bay Powersports opened, Steve and Brendan have set out to provide motorcycle riders, of all backgrounds, with the best service and fair prices. With these goals, they intend to provide each and every customer with the best quality service to ensure the best ride possible.
