About Chris Watson

Chris Watson was born into a motorcycling family; you could say it’s in his blood. His path is one of total dedication to riding and racing, in particular in the speedway and long track disciplines, which saw ‘Watto’ travel the world and compete against the very best. 
At home, Chris won an incredible swag of 41 national titles and became known as one of Australia’s most successful racers in any from of racing. He still rides every chance he can and still motos like a mad man no matter what or where he’s riding from the circuit to the trail ride. 
In 1992, Watto founded Chris Watson Motorcycles, Cessnock, initially as a Yamaha and Husqvarna dealer and over the years built the business to be one of the most revered and trusted dealerships in the country. Keen to have an inner-city presence, Watto opened the Chris Watson Motorsports store in Newcsatle to bring the same level of service and dedication to all things two-wheels to one of Australia’s greatest coastal cities.
