Bike show ‘better than ever, after being torpedoed by Covid in 2021

The London Motorcycle Show is roaring back to London’s Docklands, from February 11 – 13 for a celebration of two-wheeled fun and freedom.

Show-goers will be able to see the latest machinery on offer from some of the world’s leading motorcycle manufacturers, including BMW, CCM, Ducati, Honda, Indian Motorcycle, Kawasaki, Langen Motorcycles, Lexmoto, Suzuki, Triumph and Yamaha. The latest motorcycle clothing and protective gear will be on show too.

London Motor Show roars back into town

This year’s show – after last year’s was cancelled at the height of the pandemic – claims to be better than ever, with a rich diversity of talent, machinery and entertainment.

One of the main draws will be a special tribute to motorsport icon Valentino Rossi. After 26 seasons competing in Grand Prix racing, the Italian legend’s illustrious career came to a close in November. The show will be celebrating his achievements by flying in six of his championship-winning machines, including his four MotoGP Yamahas from 2004, 2005, 2008 and 2009, as well as his two 125cc and 250cc Aprilias from the 1997 and 1999 seasons.


A key show highlight will be the live action racing, in which road racing legends John McGuinness and Peter Hickman go head-to-head as they battle to be crowned the ‘MCN King of the Roads’…. on 125cc bikes, racing around an exciting indoor 150-metre flat track, allowing show-goers a close-up of the thrills and spills.
