Kansas Dealer Expanding

Nmotion Yamaha has paid $1.15 million to buy a 17,000-square-foot building, a former Fox Collision body shop, out of bankruptcy. Fox Collision, which had 18 shops in four states, filed bankruptcy in January.

Kevin Helt, part owner and general manager for Nmotion, told the Wichita Business Journal the dealership will relocate from a smaller space in a strip center where it's been since September.

Helt says the new location will give Nmotion more room to display its motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles, plus increased exposure from a main thoroughfare.
