Dealers flock to Scottish show

The Great Scottish Bike Show takes place at Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre on the weekend of 9 and 10 August and a host of top dealers is said to be bringing the latest models from Honda, Suzuki, Victory, Indian, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Aprilia and Moto Guzzi, along with autojumble plots offering all manner of machines and motorcycle parts and accessories.

Live action will be headlined by the Yamaha’s Dark Side MT Tour, which sees the Japanese manufacturing giant offering an array of free activities.

Test ride opportunities will be available on models across the MT range, including the MT-09 Street Rally and the new MT-125, and there will also be a host of other riding experiences.

A fleet of MT models will be available to test for those with a full motorcycle licence, while novices, A1 and A2 licence holders can sample the MT-125 and the 35kW version of the MT-07 on a specialist test course with instructors on hand to assist.

In addition to the unique test ride opportunity, the MT Tour events will include the Dave Coates Stunt Show, ‘have-a-go’ activities including the MT-09 Extreme Wheelie Machine, the MT Tour truck with exclusive MT apparel and accessories on display, a paddock for existing MT owners and much more.

Another display team, the madcap Purple Helmets, will be making their way to Edinburgh from the Isle of Man, adding their own brand of stunt humour to proceedings.

There’s competitive action too in the form of Moped Mayhem and Scottish Supermoto demos as organisers look to make the most of facilities, both inside and out, at the RHC.

“We’ve gone to great lengths in our efforts to provide an all-round motorcycle weekend with interactive, live action taking place outside supplementing the usual excellent trade and club stands filling the halls,” said Nick Mowbray, exhibition manager.

The event will also welcome racing royalty, with Giacomo Agostini as star guest alongside one of Scotland’s own, three times TT winner Alex George.

“The show will celebrate all that is best about biking, from classic to modern and everything in between,” added Nick.
