On May 13-14 you’ll get the chance to throw your leg over one of the hottest new bikes of 2017, Suzuki’s all-new GSX-R1000.
Suzuki are bringing along a fleet of test bikes to the Carole Nash MCN Festival of Motorcycling and in addition to the GSX-R you’ll be able to ride the 650 and 1000cc V-Stroms plus the 750 and 1000cc GSX-S models.

All the bikes will be available to test ride on both days with escorted rides through the glorious Cambridgeshire countryside, a route that will include a mix of fast A-roads and twisty back lanes, perfect for all types of bikes and riders.

Suzuki’s full test fleet

Suzuki GSX-R1000
Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom
Suzuki DL650 V-Strom
Suzuki GSX-S1000F
Suzuki GSX-S1000
Suzuki SV650
Suzuki GSX-S750


Booking a test ride couldn’t be easier, just go to the Suzuki stand with your riding kit and appropriate licence on the day. There will be over 100 test ride bikes at the Festival so if you want to pack in more than a few rides it makes sense to bring your tent…

Make a weekend of it

Camping is a great way to experience all that the Festival has to offer. Not only can campers watch a full Championship Speedway round for free on Saturday night* but they also gain early access into the show, giving them the opportunity to be the first to sign up for test rides. Plus campers get access to the retail zone to bag an early bargain.

There’s also some great evening entertainment for those who stay all weekend – Yamaha will be hosting the MT Dark Side Party on both Friday and Saturday evening with plenty of live music to get the party in full swing.

Advance day tickets and camping packages are now on sale, with discounted day tickets at £15 online, seniors (over 65) £11 and camping starts at £30 per person. Children go free.

*Day ticket-holders can watch the Championship Speedway round (Peterborough Panthers v Newcastle Diamonds) but will need to buy an additional £16 ticket on the gate
