UK Honda fans among first to see new metal

Honda is going all out to entertain its visitors at Motorcycle Live. Honda says its stand will be bigger and better than ever, with live features, racer appearances, information hubs, hospitality and of course, a stunning display of production and racing machinery – including the UK debut of the RC213V-S and True Adventure prototype models.

The two prototype machines will be arriving at Motorcycle Live straight from their unveiling at EICMA in Milan last week, meaning UK bike fans are among the first in the world to see them in the metal. They will be on display alongside Honda’s entire motorcycle and scooter range, including the UK debut of some brand-new models for 2015 – the VFR800X Crossrunner, the 40th anniversary Gold Wing and the Forza 125 sports GT scooter.

Race fans can also enjoy an impressive display of racing machinery from the past and present, including the three special-livery CBR1000RR Fireblades ridden by 2014 British Superbike Championship wild card Julien Da Costa, 21-time Isle of Man TT winner John McGuinness’s Fireblade, the 2015 Team HRC Dakar squad’s CRF450 Rally and the 1989 NXR750 Rothmans Honda Dakar race bike.

Honda Racing’s 2015 British Superbike stars Jason O’Halloran and Dan Linfoot, TT star McGuinness and newly-signed Pata Honda World Superbike rider Sylvain Guintoli will all be appearing on the stand for Q&As and autograph signing sessions.

The Honda Racing Café will make a welcome return, providing a place for show goers to make a pit stop for coffee and cake – with all proceeds being donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

The ever-popular My First Licence feature, where children aged five to 11 can have a go on two wheels around a specially constructed indoor street scene, will also make a return to the show.

Motorcycle Live takes place at The NEC, Birmingham from 22-30 November. Advance tickets are just £17 per adult, £11 for Seniors and £7 for children aged 11-16 (kids ten and under accompanied by a paying adult go free). To book, call 0844 581 2345 or visit
