All the latest bikes and some amazing live action all under one roof.

Biking is booming again with the hottest range of new machines we’ve seen in years. Now Scottish fans can see all the key bikes gathered together in Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre during the Carole Nash MCN Scottish Show on March 7-8.

As well as the bikes, there are stacks of stars including John McGuinness and stunts from Scotland’s finest, Kevin Carmichael.

Scrambler set to steal show
Ducati Glasgow will be heading to the Show with the 899 and 1200 Panigales, the next-generation Multistrada 1200 and the new Scrambler range. Visitors can sit and get a feel for the bikes, and check out some of the extras and accessories available.

See Triumph’s new Tigers
The new 800cc Tigers will be headlining on the Triumph stand, so try them for size and book yourself a test ride. The Tiger 800XR is a road biased machine, whereas the 800XC leans towards the off-road rider. Bristling with top-spec equipment as standard, the Tigers are designed to deliver whatever you want, no matter how you ride.

Suzuki’s new semi-naked GSX-S1000 and the faired GSX-S1000F will be big attention grabbers. The duo have an all-new lightweight frame and an inline-four based on the GSX-R1000 K5, regarded as one of the best ever engines. Suzuki can be found on Stand H128 and will be supported by popular dealerships Mickey Oates Motorcycles, Saltire Suzuki and Cupar Motorcycles.
