Suzuki GB will be supporting this year’s National BikeSafe show, which takes place at Rockingham circuit in Corby on Saturday 16 July, with its fleet of 2016 demo machines.

The new SV650, launched earlier in the year, will be available to test ride, along with the GSX-S1000 super-naked, the V-Strom 650XT and V-Strom 1000, Burgman 650 Executive luxury scooter, and the GSX-R1000.

Bennetts Suzuki’s British Superbike star, Tommy Bridewell, will also be in attendance on the Suzuki stand, and on hand to talk bikes and racing with visitors.

The annual BikeSafe show will also feature a Get On area for new riders, and displays from emergency services that utilise motorcycles in their day-to-day work, as well as advice and information on how to become a safer motorcyclist.

Get On, the motorcycle industry’s free ‘try out’ programme, is open to anyone aged 15 or over who wants to try a motorcycle or scooter for the first time, or who wants to get back on a bike after a few years away and it’s free.

Riders will be offered a 30-minute session with a professional instructor, with all safety clothing provided, during which time they will be introduced to the gears, brakes, clutch and slow speed handling.

Steve Kenward, CEO of the Motorcycle Industry Association, which funds Get On says: “The national BikeSafe Show is a hugely varied event and one which attracts riders and their families from across the UK.  As it is only £1 to get into the show, it also attracts non-riders and once they experience the buzz around such an event, they often want to try a motorcycle themselves.  Seven-year-old stunt rider Lottie Trenchard will be showcasing her skills and seeing someone so competent at such a young age always inspires people to want to get on a bike.”
