Day two of the London Motorcycle Show saw Honda announce its latest CBR1000RR, XL700V Transalp, and CBF600 and 600S ABS models, which are due to be officially launched on February 21.

The Fireblade and Transalp models hold pride of place on the firm’s LMS stand, and visitors are being offered the chance to win one of the four new bikes in an online competition.

The winner is set to be announced at launch events in Honda’s UK dealerships on the evening of February 21.

Honda is encouraging entrants to visit one of its outlets that evening by throwing in the chance to attend a Premier race course at the Ron Haslam Race School. The course includes a pillion ride with Ron or Leon Haslam.
