About CalMoto in Livermore, CA

In November of 2019, CalMoto consolidated all of its operations to our Livermore location. Just call us at (925) 583-3300 to ask about these services!

California BMW (now CalMoto) was founded in 1981 by a group of enthusiast BMW riders. Kari and Gail Prager were part of that original team. Their vision was to create a dealership dedicated to a love for motorcycles and a desire for excellence. California BMW helped to establish the Bay Area as one of BMW’s strongest markets nationwide and is widely recognized as a top BMW dealer in the USA. By 1995, Kari and Gail were sole owners of the enterprise and added the Triumph brand. California Triumph became one of the first franchised Triumph dealers in the USA and has been one of Triumph’s top American dealers ever since achieving Triumph Premier Group Platinum status in 2006. In 2008 we were fortunate to be able to add the Vespa® Scooter line to our dealership. In January 2017, CalMoto ended its relationship with Triumph Motorcycles after 21 years. We wish Triumph well, but unfortunately, our visions for each others’ success was no longer in alignment.
