A 10,000sqm showroom stocked with the biggest bike brands will greet visitors as the doors to the Australian Motorcycle Expo Gold Coast open this Friday.
Showcasing a complete range of models from major manufacturers, the event provides an opportunity for the experienced or first-time rider to compare features and price with expert assistance readily available.
Many manufacturers will offer exclusive specials to show-goers, with a range of on-site finance options available.
Event Manager Mark Petersen said the Australian Motorcycle Expo Gold Coast looked set to kick-start a solid sales year for the two-wheel and personal watercraft (PWC) industry.
"Manufacturers have come prepared to offer the best prices on a wide range of motorcycles at the event," said Petersen.
"This is the biggest and most comprehensive one-stop shop for enthusiasts, providing the chance to compare models, grab a great deal and source finance on the spot.
"There will be over 500 new motorcycles, scooters, ATVs (all-terrain vehicles) and PWCs on the floor, ensuring every rider, regardless of age or experience, has something to choose from."
Motorcycle brands exhibiting at this event include BMW Motorrad, BRP, Big Bear Choppers, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Husaberg, Hyosung, Kawasaki, KTM, Kymco, Mojo Motorcycles, OZ Trikes, Piaggio, Sherco, Suzuki, TGB, Triumph, Vespa, Victory Motorcycles and Yamaha Motor. PWC brands will include Honda, SeaDoo, Kawasaki and Yamaha.
The Big Brand Clearance Sale (located on level 2) will make a popular return, with unbeatable bargains on road and off-road riding gear from Fox, Alpinestars, Shift, KBC, RST, O'Neal, RJays, Smith, Kryptonite and many more available. Show-only specials include road jackets from $140 and helmets from $70.
"The Big Brand Clearance Sale complements a huge range of exhibitor specials on products and accessories including safety gear, apparel, rider communications, hobby models, magazine subscriptions, training and experience days and much more," continued Petersen.
"Our visitors told us they want value for money and our exhibitors have certainly delivered this year."
