Suzuki go large at Motorcycle Live

2012 GSX-R1000

With the UK's biggest motorcycle event, Motorcycle Live, starting this Saturday, Suzuki has confirmed its largest ever presence at the Birmingham-based exhibition, offering visitors an interactive area where they can browse the latest models and race machines, mingle with the stars and even give the kids a first taste of two-wheeled action.
Set over 1380sq m, and offering every Suzuki attraction in one-spot, this year's stand will feature all the very latest Suzuki models, like the all-new GSX-R1000 that was unveiled just a few weeks ago and makes its UK debut at Motorcycle Live, along with an all-new model that will be unveiled for the first time in Europe too.
On top of the new-for-2012 metal, British Superbike team, TAS Suzuki, will showcase iconic machines from its rich history, including the David Jefferies GSX-R1000 TT bike, Josh Brookes's 2011 BSB machine, Guy Martin's Isle of Man TT bike and Alastair Seeley's championship winning GSX-R600. Other key models on display include John Hopkins's BSB machine and the innovative Hydrogen Fuel Cell Burgman.
For the kids, Suzuki is pleased to bring its Off-Road Test Ride initiative back, after being inundated with bookings at the 2010 edition of Motorcycle Live. Operating in the Suzuki interactive area too, kids from age six and above can try their hand at two-wheel action in a safe and fun environment.
And for adults with a full motorcycle licence, then why not take the opportunity to try a new Suzuki for yourself while at Motorcycle Live? With test rides available on popular models like the all-new V-Strom 650 ABS, GSX1250FA, GSR750, Gladius and Burgman 650ABS, there's a great choice and even riding kit provided too.
If that's not enough, Suzuki will also host special themed days at the show, like the 'Family Days' running on both Sundays of Motorcycle Live, where visitors to the show can join Suzuki for free face painting, balloons and more. And for those not with the kids, Suzuki welcome all show visitors to the stand for a complimentary tea or coffee and chat.
Motorcycle Live 2011 looks set to be bigger and better than ever. If you haven't bought your tickets yet, you can still do so online at or simply buy them on arrival.
