WEL­COME

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Nec Show Guide -

It’s one of the high­lights of the year, and a ab­so­lute pil­grim­age for many of us, as we wrap up warm and head to the NEC for the an­nual orgy of new metal that is Mo­tor­cy­cle Live. And with such a phe­nom­e­nally strong in­flux of new bikes for 2017 – well over 100 new mod­els in to­tal – there’s more to see, stroke, sit on and sali­vate over than ever be­fore. Maybe even more im­pres­sive than the sheer vol­ume of mo­tor­cy­cles is the ram­pant di­ver­sity, and qual­ity, on of­fer. There isn’t a taste, style or predilec­tion that isn’t catered for amongst the lat­est crop – and add in the huge amount of ex­it­ing bikes that will roll into the new year with just light re­vi­sions for Euro4, and it adds up to a bam­boo­zling col­lec­tion of temp­ta­tion.

Team MCN took some time out this week to con­sider the very best new bikes to emerge from the In­ter­mot, AIMEXPO and EICMA shows that have taken place over the last five weeks to pick the bikes we most want to get up close to at Mo­tor­cy­cle Live. And after a fair bit of ‘healthy ban­ter’ we’ve set­tled on our Top 40 Hottest New Bikes of 2017, and you can see the full list over the com­ing pages – then get your­self to Birm­ing­ham to see them for your­self.

Also in this spe­cial pullout guide is all the in­for­ma­tion you need to find the NEC, get your tick­ets, find your way around the show, and pri­ori­tise which fea­tures you most want to see while you’re there. If you don’t want to carry the whole of this sup­ple­ment with you, just whip out the cen­tre-page pullout as an in­valu­able pocket guide to what’s on, and where.

What­ever else you’re go­ing to see, don’t for­get to visit the MCN stand (Hall 4, 4C21) while you’re there.
