Living the dream at Motorcycle Live

Motorcycle Live was a cracker this year with our three brands unveiling a host of new models.

Director Rob Walters, Suzuki sales specialist Dale Allerton and sales support Joe Willis were spoiled for choice at the hugely-popular event at Birmingham NEC with strong showings from all three of our brands – Kawasaki, KTM and Suzuki.

Rob said: “It was good to see Kawasaki, KTM and Suzuki among the most popular stands at Motorcycle Live.”

Kawasaki’s new models included:

“The Kawasaki hybrids were creating a lot of interest too for people who want to take the electrified route.

“The ZX-10R anniversary models looked great in the middle of the stand, especially the purple and pink version,” Rob said.

“The Eliminator will be a welcome addition, judging by the number of Vulcan S cruisers we sell. It’s been very popular over the years.”

KTM unveiled its new 990 Duke alongside updated 2024 125 and 390 Dukes.

The KTM 990 Duke brings a bigger-capacity motorbike to the naked range which has a lot of fans.

Suzuki’s big new stars were the GSX-8R, a fully-faired sportsbike based on the naked 8S, the GSX-S1000GX sport tourer crossover and the more road-focused V-Strom 800RE.

Rob said: “The new GSX-8R has a very nice riding position and, knowing what the naked 8S is like, I would imagine it’s going to be very good to ride, with more wind protection.

“The V-Strom 800RE is going to be very popular as it is more road-focussed.

“The GSX-S1000GX is a bit taller than the GT so takes the next step into long-distance touring.”
