With just under a month to go until Motorcycle Live 2013 opens its doors, the tally of major motorcycle manufacturers showcasing their brand new machinery at the UK’s biggest bike show has risen to 30 with the addition of off-road, trials and enduro brands Gas Gas and Husqvarna.
Over 150 other exhibitors and retail stands will also be at the show offering the very best in motorcycle kit, accessories, products and services, and if that’s not enough to keep visitors busy, the ‘live’ in Motorcycle Live certainly will.
