By totalmotorcycle Consumers and Industry praise successful 2015 Sydney Motorcycle Show
Over 24,000 motorcycle enthusiasts flocked to Sydney Olympic Park for the 2015 Sydney Motorcycle Show proudly presented by InsureMyRide last weekend.
Despite scorching temperatures of 43 degrees threatening to keep patrons away on Friday, a record number of new bikes being unveiled ensured a bumper crowd for the opening day.
Brands including Triumph, BMW, Kawasaki, Indian, Victory, Harley-Davidson, Suzuki, Yamaha, MV Agusta and Royal Enfield all released new model motorcycles just days after their global launch at EICMA.
Suzuki Motorcycles National Marketing Manager Lewis Croft praised show organisers for a successful show.
“I would like to say full credit to the show organisers for another successful FCAI motorcycle industry show. Mark, Troy and their dedicated team put on a show that entertained the crowd, provided value for the patrons, whilst helping Suzuki maintain its profile and brand awareness in the NSW market,” Croft said.
“Suzuki exhibited 50 motorcycles and unveiled for the first time in the Southern hemisphere the all-new SV650 V-Twin Fun machine.
“The show was the perfect platform to also announce our plan for the 2016 Motocross and Supercross Championship campaign with the announcement of our signing of World MX rider and local hero Todd Waters. Todd will compete on the factory Suzuki RM-Z450 with the support and management of Wilson MX,” Croft added.
A huge line-up of special guests mingled with show visitors across the weekend including football stars Nathan Hindmarsh and Michael Hooper who were on the Harley Davidson stand, motorcycle legend Kel Carruthers on the Yamaha stand, Graham Crosby at WFO and Garry McCoy at Steven Walter Foundation.
Show Ambassador Robbie Maddison was easily one of the most popular guests, meeting fans Friday before returning Saturday to sign for almost two hours straight on the Transmoto stand.
