Motorcycle Live 2022 – resetting results

Organisers have confirmed that just under 90,000 motorcycle enthusiasts attended Motorcycle Live for the 2022 showcase, which closed its doors on Sunday 27 November.

That’s an increase of over 36% when compared to the 2021 event, during which compulsory mask-wearing was introduced for the final three days in response to the imminent arrival of the Covid Omicron variant.

The final 2022 attendance figure is also only 15% behind the pre-pandemic edition of the show held in 2019, despite nationwide rail strikes in operation on the last Saturday of the show.

Whether fans of petrol or electric-powered machines, visitors of all ages could get on two wheels, with over 650 visitors taking their first ride, over 500 taking part in a group test ride and over 1000 trying out electric bikes for size.

Over 50 manufacturers showcased new 2023 models and line-ups, retailers offered showgoers a chance to pick up a bargain, riders and celebrities from the motorcycling world were out in force, and live entertainment ran throughout the nine days.

Finlay McAllan, managing director of Motorcycle Live, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to see the halls packed with visitors taking the opportunity to jump on two wheels. I’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone involved – and to all the visitors who chose to join us. Here’s to next year!”

Motorcycle Live 2023 will take place at The NEC, Birmingham from 18 – 26 November 2023
