Großhändler, Distributor


Explanation:
Distributor is used in German as well. These are your other choices:

distributor
(com) Händler m
– Vertragshändler m
– Regionalvertreter m
(com, US) Großhändler m (ie, wholesaler, wholesale dealer; opp, retailer)
[Schäfer, Wirtschaftsenglisch]

See which fits best into your context. If the dealer sells only one particular brand, "Vertragshändler" might be a good choice. Else you should be fine with Großhändler or Distributor.

Vetriebsstelle/Händler


Explanation:
If the distributor is acting for the company, i.e. BMW Motorcycles, then it is Händler, otherwise it will just be Vertriebsstelle.
