Expansion as Redline goes off the scale

A sunny open evening at Redline Motorcycles in Loughborough saw two of KTM’s 2017 premier road models unveiled and the official opening of an expanded showroom. The event was hosted by owner Tim Walker with VIP guest Niall Mackenzie. The former GP racer and three-times BSB champion was accompanied by his wife Jan and their two racer sons – 2016 British Superstock champion Taylor and 2016 British Supersport champion Tarran, who both launched their careers on KTM 125s.

Billy Wisehall, a Redline customer who recently undertook a four-month solo tour of Canada and the US on his KTM 990 Adventure S, was also a star guest.

By acquiring the next-door unit last year and knocking down walls, Redline doubled the size of its premises. Road and off-road KTMs and accessories have been joined by Honda and Yamaha off-road bikes, plus used machines.

“I wonder now how we managed with half the space,” Tim Walker said. “As well as a bigger showroom we also have useful extra storage space on the first floor.

“This is the start of our on-road year, with sales of road KTMs now overtaking off-road, as expected. Both the Super Duke and 1290 Super Adventure look strong.” Those were two models unveiled at the busy event.
