A new dealer of off highway vehicles and motorcycles is welcoming customers in Fort Dodge.

RJ Power Sports, a dealer of Polaris, Kawasaki and CF Moto products, is located at Fifth Avenue South and Webster County Road P59.

“People have welcomed us very well,” said Hunter McCoy, co-owner of the business. “The response has been overwhelming for sure.”

RJ Power Sports, whose original store is in Ottumwa, bought the Fort Dodge location on Dec. 8, 2023.

“It’s very similar to Ottumwa,” McCoy said. “It feels very familiar as far as the size of the town and the size of the market.”

Side-by-side vehicles are lined up in front of RJ Power Sports at Fifth Avenue South and Webster County Road P59. The business opened in December.

The dealership is located just a few miles straight north on Webster County road P59 from the Gypsum City Off-Highway Vehicle Park, but McCoy said the presence of the park wasn’t the only reason his company bought the Fort Dodge site.

“We were looking at the market in general and not just the park,” he said.

“We definitely notice a lot of traffic from the OHV park,” he added.

The business offers two kinds of off-highway vehicles: side-by-sides and ATVs. Side-by-sides are machines that people sit inside of. The driver uses a steering wheel. ATVs are vehicles that people sit on and use handlebars to steer.

RJ Power Sports also offers Kawasaki motorcycles.

McCoy said the dealership will service all makes and models of motorcycles and off-highway vehicles. There is a parts department.

A selection of helmets, other safety equipment and clothing is offered.

“Our goal is to have what people need when they want it,” McCoy said.

There are 12 employees, he said.
