Last Chance to See Bikes at AMID Motorcycle Lifestyle Show
Today is your last chance to get down to the Johannesburg Expo Centre, NASREC to attend the annual AMID Motorcycle Lifestyle Expo. All major manufacturers are present and there is a mouth-watering line-up of motorcycles to look at, climb on and listen to.
It’s not just static displays either. There will be the opportunity to watch some of SA’s most skilful riders in action in a round of the national Supermoto Championship. There’s also SA’s most skilful bike rider – Brian Capper – putting on a gravity-defying display of trials riding that has to be seen to be believed.
Also present will be some of South Africa’s best and fastest racers from the local and international scene; Brad Binder and Sheridan Morais from Moto3 and World Supersport respectively, Clinton Seller and Cam Petersen from SA National Superbikes.
Inside the main hall, there are 15 brand new models from the likes of Yamaha, KTM and BMW, not to mention the appearance of the first motorcycle ever to be manufactured in South Africa; the Puzey-manufactured BRM 300 Enduro bike.
All the major bike importers have stands at the show and all have something for everyone, from cheap and cheerful scooters through tourers, cruisers, superbikes and the all-important adventure bikes. This is the ideal opportunity to compare bike with bike with them all in the same place at one time.
A new feature of this year’s show will be a central main stage area where Harry Fisher and Mat Durrans from The Bike Show will be entertaining the crowds with new bike launches, interviews, giveaways and, most importantly, the announcement of the first ever Pirelli Bike of the Year.
Accessory manufacturers will be present in force, selling something for everyone no matter what bike they ride and, with the presence of boats and adventure equipment in other halls and outside there really is something for everyone. Show runs from 9a.m. to 4p.m.
