UK Motorcycle Show
This year’s 2011 Intermot motorcycle show from Cologne Germany was a huge success. Motorcycle manufacturers unveiled their new models for 2011 in front of record crowds.
Motorcycles fans that did make it to the German motorcycle show, that displayed many of the new 2011 motorcycles, have a second chance on UK soil in a matter of weeks they will all be on display again (and maybe more) at Carole Nash Motorcycle Live.
2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R
One of the most eagerly-awaited supersports bikes for 2011 is the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R that made its debut at Cologne.
Based on Kawasaki’s new World Superbike and sporting advanced traction control and three selectable power modes up to a rumored 200 horsepower (although some recent YouTube dyno tests are saying different), this stunning motorcycle will be on display in Birmingham from November 27.
2011 BMW K 1600 GT and 2011 BMW K 1600 GTL
BMW Motorrad took the chance to launch its two new super-touring motorcycles on home turf, both of which feature an incredibly compact 1600cc in-line six-cylinder power plant.
The K 1600 GT and K 1600 GTL feature all the top-of-the-range goodies you would expect from the German motorcycle company and will both be on show in Birmingham.
2011 Suzuki GSX-R600
Suzuki unveiled no fewer than three new motorcycles for 2011. The iconic GSX-R range gets all-new 600 and 750 motorcycle models, developed in parallel with each other and boasting a host of innovative features taken straight from MotoGP.
Also unveiled at Intermot, and heading to the NEC in November, was Suzuki’s all-new GSR750, a blend of the modern and the futuristic with a powerful 749cc four-cylinder fuel-injected engine.
