On the road with shows and demos

We’re getting ready for a busy time taking our motorbikes out to shows and getting you out on them on demo days.

We’ll be taking a selection of Kawasakis, KTMs and Suzukis to the Stonham Motorcycle Show on Sunday 8 May at Stonham Barns.

The motorbikes will only be on display at Stonham but the following Saturday – 14 May – you’ll be able to ride them at a demo day at our Ranelagh Road showroom in Ipswich.

Three weeks later, on Saturday 4 June, we’re holding a dedicated KTM demo day at the dealership, the first since taking on the street bikes franchise two and a half years ago and adding off-road models last year.

KTM will bring a wide range of bikes from its test fleet, to add to our demo machines, as well as its roadshow lorry, which graced our stand at last year’s East Anglia Copdock Bike Show.

Members of Suffolk Advanced Motorcyclists (SAM) will run accompanied test rides on set routes during the 14 May demo day so we can fit in as many rides as possible. Riders can also have a free assessment of their skills and find out about taking the advanced test.

But with demo ride slots limited, and a good turnout expected, we’re urging people to book a test ride in advance.

Dave Willis said: “If there’s a specific bike you want to ride at the demo days, the best thing to do is to ring the sales team and book a slot.”
