Motorcycle Live 2018 at the NEC, Birmingham
Motorcycle Live 2018 took place from 17th-25th November. It’s the UK’s largest Motorcycle show. This year, just like every other year, was a fantastic event for all bike enthusiasts.
There was plenty of opportunities to actually ride the bikes within dedicated areas of the centre, see new bikes to be released in 2019, and admire your favourite models of bike on display – all clean and gleaming.
Motorcycle Live 2018
We went along to the ‘Motorcycle Live 2018’ event and were completely taken by all the bikes on display. Just check out some of the magnificent motorbikes we saw…
Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC
This masterpiece raises the bar when it comes to modern technology vs. style. It’s been built with both performance and classic style in mind. It has exceptional road performance, capability, confidence, and agile handling, combined with a 21st century custom scrambler style. Whether you want to go about your day-to-day routine, or go for an off-road adventure, this bike is designed to be able to do both.
Triumph Street Triple
The Triumph Street Triple is a fantastic bike for new riders. Whether you’re looking for a steady bike for the day-to-day commute, or one you can have some fun with on a track, the Triumph Street Triple is available in three different options, to cater for all your needs. These options include the S, R, and RS.
Triumph Tiger 1200 XR
The all-new Triumph Tiger 1200 XR is not only lighter than its predecessor, it’s all been installed with the much more responsive ‘triple engine’. It’s also got three different riding modes: cruise control, switchable ABS, and traction control. What’s not to love?
Honda Super Cub C125
Above is the new Honda Super Cub C125, featured in two different colour options. Honda cubs have been made since 1958, whilst the super cubs have been made from 1960. Quite the iconic bike, if we do say so ourselves.
Above is the Peugeot Django, featured in the different colour options available. This range comes in various engine sizes, such as: 50cc, 125cc and 150cc.
The Suzuki GSX-S125 has a 124.4cc engine, which gives out 15ps. The motorbike weights 133kg and is capable of around 122mpg. If you’re looking for a street bike with an incredible power-to-weight ratio, then this may just be the bike for you.
The Suzuki GSX-S125 and the GSX-R125 are both young driver / new driver friendly, as you can ride them with a provisional licence. So, if you haven’t got your full bike licence yet, but you have your provisional one, and like sports bikes, either of these could be the one for you!
The GSX-R1000 is the most powerful GSX-R made as yet. It’s also the lightest as well as the most aerodynamic. It gives out 202ps, has a 1000cc engine, and weights just 202kg. What an innovative creation, with an excellent power-to-weight ratio.
BMW G 310 R
The BMW G 310 R is a motorbike that everyone wants to ride. The ergonomic layout of elements of the bike, such as: the handlebars, footrest and control elements, ensures a fantastic experience. Whether you’re driving around the city, or heading for tranquillity in the countryside for the weekend, this bike knows how to cater to your requirements.
BMW S 1000 R
This roadster ensures you have all the essentials for a great ride. With 165hp, just revving will sound sweeter than your favourite song on the radio.
