Motorcycle has become a common vehicle in Indonesia due to its flexibility to drive around in various geographical terrain. The number of motorcycle purchases in Indonesia is increasing annually, along with the repair services and spare part selling. Abundant repair service providers create fierce competition among themselves, so many providers maintain their service quality in order to retain their customer. The aim of this research is to investigate the impact of service quality and relationship quality to customer satisfaction in motorcycle repair providers. This research is using the quantitative approach, in which the data are collected by questionnaires distributed to samples of populations. The population is the customers who have purchased repair services and spare parts for their motorcycle, and the number of samples is 100 respondents. The data are analyzed with a SmartPLS software, and the results show a positive significant impact from service quality to customer satisfaction, a positive significant impact from service quality to relationship quality, and a positive impact from relationship quality to customer satisfaction. Therefore, for the long term competitive advantage, motorcycle repair service providers have to consider their service quality and relationship quality to retain their customers.
