The capital’s largest motorcycling event, the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show, takes place this weekend (February 14-16) celebrating all things two-wheeled.
Alongside the latest road machines from 18 of the world’s leading manufacturers, visitors to the ExCel exhibition centre will be able to see explosive live action racing, rare classic machines, biking celebrities and a UK-exclusive celebration of Barry Sheene, the Briton who did more than most to broaden the appeal of motorcycle racing.
The roster of manufacturers includes AJS, BMW, CCM, CF Moto, Ducati, ECOOTER, Honda, Husqvarna, Indian, Kawasaki, KTM, Mutt Motorcycles, MV Agusta, Royal Enfield, Suzuki, Triumph, Yamaha and Zero. All will be displaying their 2020 machines, making the event the biggest collection of new bikes in London.
Nine of Barry Sheene’s famed race machines (including his two title-winning Suzuki RG500s) are being flown in from Australia for the show. Sheene’s team-mate Steve Parrish and the Suzuki chief technician during Sheene’s heyday in the mid-70s will be appearing onstage to share insights and anecdotes.
