Motorcycle Live 2022 NEC Birmingham - back on form again!

Organisers of the annual Motorcycle Live show are celebrating a highly successful 2022 event following nine busy days at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC).

Showcasing 52 motorcycle manufacturers across three halls, plus opportunities to take test rides both on the surrounding roads and a dedicated indoor off-road Adventure Experience, just under 90,000 visitors attended from November 19-27.

Speaking to MCN on the Monday of the event, Managing Director, Finlay McAllan said: “We have to consider 2022 to be our new Year One because last year was an anomaly because we had a bump in the road with Omicron and temporary face masks. The motorcycle industry we saw in 2019 doesn’t exist anymore.”

He continued: “On the first Saturday I tried to go down to the back of hall four and had to give up in the end because the aisles were so busy.”

MikeG & I went up on Sunday 20th, stayed @ a Premier Inn, dined @ TGIF, breakfasted @ McDonalds & attended the show on Monday 21st. We got there before opening, & left at kicking out time! A long, exhausting but fantastic day! The 2021 show was a bit lacklustre (just after lockdown) less halls, less / smaller stands, fewer visitors. This year was a corker - as good a MCL as I've ever attended :0). My favourite stand was Norton - brilliant to see the effort that TVS are putting into this wonderful marque - classic beauty in the Commando 961, and state of the art in V4CR. Mike was particularly stricken by the Triumph stand, and their modern classics range. Click here to see some photos from our visit.
