Motorcycle Live 2018 Preview
November 17th - 25th sees the show return to the NEC near Birmingham.
If you want to see new motorcycles direct from last month's Intermot and the EICMA (Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo e Accessori) on in Milan this week, then the Motorcycle Live Show at the National Exhibition Centre near Birmingham is the place to go.
The 2018 show runs from Saturday 17th to Sunday 25th of November and will showcase over 40 world leading manufacturers, with visitors being among the first in the world to see, touch and even sit on brand new 2019 models.
Many manufacturers who have unveiled new bikes this week in Milan will be showing them for the first time in the UK at the Motorcycle Live show. Some of the new bikes you can see at the NEC show include three new additions from Scrambler Ducati and KTM's new version of its sports tourer.
