Honda is planning for a huge show at the 2008 Australian Motorcycle Expo in Melbourne
Honda is planning for a huge show at the 2008 Australian Motorcycle Expo, the biggest yet for the number one manufacturer in Australia.
Honda’s comprehensive motorcycle range, including the CBR1000RR Fireblade, the new automatic DN-01 cruiser, RC212V MotoGP bike, the latest CRF450R and ARX1500 Personal Watercraft will all be on display, as will the majority of their range of road and off road bikes and scooters.
Visitors will have the opportunity to get a picture with the “Honda Girls”, buy something from the merchandise range at special show prices (including race wear), and grab some free stickers and temporary tattoos for big and little kids alike.
Of interest to Melbourne commuters, Honda’s full range of popular and incredibly fuel efficient scooters will be there including the all-new SH300i, always popular Today50, powerful Silverwing, Lead100 and much more.
For those after luxury, the Honda Gold Wing Lounge will exhibit the latest versions of the most comfortable and elegant cruising bike on the market. With an airbag (deployed for viewing), GPS and premium audio system, the Gold Wing needs to be seen to be believed.
The Snowy Ride group will also be on hand to provide information on their annual Honda sponsored fundraising event, and to offer all visitors the chance to win an amazing custom painted CBR1000RR Fireblade.
Well known Victorian policeman Senior Constable Rod Lay, Honda’s World Police Games champion and eco friendly ‘online off road tours’ organiser, will also be on hand to show off his competition winning dirt bike as well as talk to kids about responsible riding.
Those interested in training can have a go on the Honda Australia Riding Training (HART) Riding Simulator, a virtual tool used to develop riders’ hazard perception skills. HART instructors will also be available to talk about training options for both new and returning riders.
For racing fans, full replica versions of the 2008 Australian Superbike Championship winning CBR1000RR ridden by Glenn Allerton will be on hand, as will the exact bikes used to win this year’s Australian Finke and Safari desert races and Australian Off Road Championships including the CRF450R and CRF250X.
The Australian Motorcycle Expo begins on Thursday, 30 October at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre and finishes on Sunday, 2 November 2008
