He is back! UK’s biggest motorcycle show ready to roll – Fraser Addecott
After a forced hiatus from you-know-what last year, Motorcycle Live returns to the NEC with all the latest models from all major – and less – manufacturers, shows, shopping, classics, customs and plenty of opportunities to ride.
After a break from the pandemic, the UK’s largest bicycle show is back in full force and ready to roll.
Motorcycle Live returns home to the NEC in Birmingham, from Saturday until Sunday 12 December.
Four exhibition halls will be filled with all the latest machines from no less than 55 manufacturers, as well as new products, riding opportunities and plenty of great entertainment.
Major manufacturers showcasing their 2022 models include BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Royal Enfield, Suzuki and Triumph.
A number of bikes will be unveiled to the global and UK public for the first time at this year’s show.
And there are possibilities to get on and ride in the test area.
In addition to the traditional manufacturers, there will of course be a wide range of electric bikes and scooters to discover and, once again, the possibility of riding on different models.
There will even be several electric bikes to test, including a Harley-Davidson!
Supported by Honda, Royal Enfield and Triumph, the Experience Adventure feature offers visitors the opportunity to get a taste of off-road driving over varied terrains and obstacles under the supervision of qualified instructors.
Full protective gear is provided by Bell Helmets and RST, and the experience is completely free.
One of the most popular features is still the Classic and Custom Zone, which returns this year.
Within it, the National Motorcycle Museum will present the winning motorcycles of the IOM TT from 1903 to the present day.
These will include a 907 Norton Twin, a 1913 Scott 500cc TT Racer, 1921 500cc BSA, 1926 Alec Bennett Velocette Model K, 1992 588cc Senior TT Winner and the 2003 600cc Valmoto Triumph.
The Custom Heroes section features the UK’s finest custom bikes, as well as this year’s Back Street Heroes Custom Bike Championship winners.
Saturday December 11 at the show is British Superbikes Day, with a range of activities and guests on site including 2012 BSB Champion Tarran Mackenzie, Bradley Ray, Christian Iddon, Luke Mossey, Tommy Hill and many more.
The 2021 Mackenzie Championship winner McAMS Yamaha will be on display throughout the show.

There’s also the Moto Trials Experience, the Kiddimoto Balance Bike Experience, the Youth MX Experience and a huge roster of motorcycling celebrities who will be in attendance every day.
