Motorbike show an exhibitor sellout

The organisers of the 2015 Carole Nash Irish Motorbike and Scooter Show have had to add another hall to the event at the RDS, writes Brian Byrne.

Slated for six weeks' time, beginning 27 February, there has been a record interest from exhibitors for the Show, which is expected to attract up to 27,000 visitors.

The organisers say hundreds of trade stands have already been booked, and the number of bikes which will be on display is in the thousands.

They say that the prospect of better economic times has encouraged participation in an industry which was particularly badly hit in the recession.

In addition to exhibition stands, attractions will include the AMD World Custom Bike Building Competition, and the Ace Global Stunt Starz group.

Many bike racing heroes will be on hand to meet their fans.

Bike manufacturers exhibiting include BMW, Ducati, Harley Davidson, KTM, Suzuki, Triumph, Yamaha, and Volt.

One of the major launches will be the new S1000RR Superbike from BMW Motorrad.
