Motorcycle Live is now open and Lincolnshire Biker in on hand, bringing you the latest news and stories to give you your two-wheeled fix. here’s a taster of what awaits if you make the time for a visit…you’ll be rewarded with all kinds of loveliness if you do…
I’ve spent the day at Motorcycle Live and I’ve got to say the atmosphere was electric – seems that the latest sportsbike offerings have captivated the public’s imagination.
Crowds flocked to savour the Honda RC213V-S, Kawasaki H2 and H2R and Ducati’s Panigale R. However, by far the biggest draw at the show was Yamaha’s new R1, which looks a lot better up close in the metal than it did when it was unveiled at EICMA in Milan.
Granted, sportsbikes may not be to everyone’s taste, but these state-of-the-art flagships are the bikes we all aspire to, whether we’re cruiser, naked or adventure bike riders, and these new models have generated a positive vibe throughout the biking world.
However, the bike of the show for me wasn’t a bike from Japan’s or Europe’s finest – the star attraction for me was the Harley-Davidson XR1200TT by Shaw Speed & amp…just look at those pipes.
