The Carole Nash MCN London motorcycle show is happening on February 15 to 17 at Excel in London’s Docklands; almost every new bike for 2013 will be there along with loads of other customs, classics and the stunning Revolution live action show.

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated new bike of 2013 is the BMW R1200GS; an all-new bike that shares barely a nut or bolt with the outgoing model and even has water-cooling rather than air-cooling for the famous Boxer twin motor.

BMW will also be showing off the class-leading new BMW S1000RR HP4; a superbike with semi-active suspension that takes the already excellent S1000RR to even greater heights.

Other new BMWs: The new F800GT tourer should answer owner criticisms of the current bike with a new fairing, modified engine with more power and a general update aimed at making more of a touring machine.

The updated F700GS and F800GS will also be on show.
