Published: 04 November 2006

The 2006 International Motorcycle and Scooter show has shut its doors to the public after 11 days and almost 150,000 visitors.

Despite the number of show goers being down on last year at 144,870, the mood from the exhibitors and those who did head to the NEC in Birmingham has been positive.

Highlights of the show included the Thunderdrome Games Arena with stunt shows and new factory models for 2007 including Suzuki’s B-King, Yamaha YZF-R1, Triumph Tiger 1050, the Honda CBR600RR and the first launch from Chinese manufacturer Wuyang. There was also the chance for bikers to try out some of the bikes on their wish lists.

We are looking forward to an exciting 2007.”

A host of stars from the world of sport also dropped in to sign autographs including World Superbike riders Troy Corser and James Toseland, MotoGP star Colin Edwards, British racing legend Carl Fogarty, and Bennetts British Superbike Championship winner and runner-up Ryuichi Kiyonari and Leon Haslam respectively.
