The Motoplex Story
In the late 60’s the state of Washington closed down one of its liquor store locations along Scriber Lake Road. The location reopened in March of 1970, not as a state liquor store, but as a motorcycle dealership.
Welcome to Lynnwood Motoplex, located in Lynnwood, Washington just north of Seattle. We have been a powersports dealer for over 40 years and service the Seattle, Lynnwood, Edmonds, and Mountlake Terrace area in Washington state. We started out in the early 70s as a full-line Yamaha dealer. Since then we have added products from Polaris Industries like Polaris ATVs, Polaris Rangers, Polaris RZRs, Polaris Sportsmans, Victory Motorcycles, and our newest member of the Polaris motorcycle family, Indian Motorcycle. That's right, Lynnwood Motoplex is the newest Indian Motorcycle dealer in greater Seattle, Washington state. We will offer the full line of Indian Motorcycle parts, garments, and accessories.

Want to get out on the water in style? Motoplex offers new and used boats from Tigé and Yamaha. Tigé is our premium line of wakeboard and wakesurf boats. If you have never been out on the water in a Tigé boat you are truly "missing the boat"! Yamaha sport boats represent the leader in "bang for the buck" when it comes to the best boat for the least amount of money. Let's not kid ourselves here though, Yamaha sport boats are dependable, out-perform their competitors, and look great out on the water. Motoplex is proud to be a powersports dealer for new and used boats with the Tigé and Yamaha sport boats name on the side!
Want to have even more fun out on the water? Try a personal watercraft from Sea-Doo or a Kawasaki Jet Ski watercraft on for size. PWCs are fun, fast, and the most maneuverable boats on the water. When you purchase your new personal watercraft from Motoplex, you get the best deal and great service to go along with it. We want to be your personal watercraft dealer.

Professional hockey brought Jim Powers Sr. down from Canada where he had played for the Seattle Totems and the Vancouver Canucks. Upon retiring Jim Sr. changed gears opening up a Yamaha dealership that has since grown, and grown.
The original store location boasted 3,500 square feet, but in six months Powers had to move the store and opted for a location along WA-99 that doubled his size to 7,500 square feet. That lasted until 1999 when Powers made a big step and a major splash on Hwy 99 moving his store to the old Jack Roberts appliance center providing the dealership with 32,000 square feet. Today they carry Yamaha, KTM, Polaris Victory, Indian, Kawsaki, Sea-Doo, Family Sport and Surf boats from Yamaha, Centurion and Supreme
Throughout that time the dealership has been a family affair. “I actually ran the store myself in the beginning putting the ‘back in 15 minutes’ sign on the door anytime I had to go to the bank or the restroom” says Powers. But slowly he got help from his wife and kids, and today his sons , Garrett and Jim Jr. manage various aspects of the store, while his daughter, Janice, functions as the book keeper.
