Vancouver Motorcycle Show at the Tradex in Abbotsford, Jan 22-24 (Free Ticket Giveaway!)

Vancouver-Motorcycle-Show

Almost 50 years have passed since Easy Rider, arguably the best biker movie of all time, roared onto the silver screen. Yet the film’s legendary status and mass appeal continues to live on today at events like the annual Vancouver Motorcycle Show.

Running January 22 to 24 2016 at the Tradex Exhibition Centre in Abbotsford, the show has consistently attracted riders and rider wanna-bes of all ages and ability. Show producer Laurie Paetz says the show’s diversity and massive selection of bikes and line-up of entertainment is what fans keep coming back for.

“They really appreciate that there is so much to see – from entertainment and giveaways to classic and newly introduced bike models,” she says.

Featuring the latest gear, live demonstrations, motorcycle giveaways, local musical entertainment, a brand new line-up of 2016 motorcycles, ATVs and scooters as well as the classics, the show once again is a family-friendly event no one should miss.

2016 Vancouver Motorcycle Show Bike Highlights:

  • New to the show this year is Indian Motorcycle who is proud to introduce their new line-up which includes a middle-weight cruiser the  Indian® Scout™ ABS, their touring motorcycle the Indian ® Roadmaster™ and their Indian Chief Dark Horse featuring a matte black finish from end-to-end.
  • Honda’s fleet will include their brand new Honda CRFL1000L Africa Twin, described as a blend of advanced technology and multi-terrain durability. Spectators will also see Honda’s  two new full-size models for 2016 –the Pioneer 1000 and 1000S, what critics are saying  are the ideal answer to those looking for vehicles that work well in both work and recreation applications.
  • Harley Davidson Canada is set to introduce its sleek Road Glide Ultra with its touring esstenials and newly styled Forty-Eight® which features a bold new front end, burly Dark Custom™ styling, and big comfort improvements.
  • BMW Motorrad is debuting their 2016 S1000XR.  Based on the hugely successful S platform, the XR features great performance, agility, upright riding position and sporty advenure riding.  BMW has also modified their F700GS and F800GS models for this year, with new tank covers, ignition lock covers and electroplated fairing pieces and an updated paint finish.
  • In 2016 Triumph has introduced the next generation of Bonneville with five exciting new motorcycles.  Each model is  considered to be a stunning evolution of the iconic Bonneville styling, all featuring an all-new Bonneville engine family.
  • Kawasaki promises to up the wow factor with its Ninja ZX-14R bike which features advanced electronics, an innovative frame and ultra-powerful 1,441cc inline four-cylinder engine. Not to be outclassed by the Ninja, Kawasaki’s 2016 Vulcan® S ABS Café should excite show fans as well with its adjustable cruising features and Ninja®-derived power.
  • Yamaha is bringing out its Y2450F model which has a modified engine and launch control system for those riders who need faster starts.  And if riders are looking for the ultimate in suburban commuter comfort, they can check out Yamaha’s BWs 125 which has been given a stylish makeover for the new year.
  • The name Ducati may be synonymous with speed but in 2016, that could be challenged now that the brand has joined the cruiser world with its bike the X Diavel. Called “low-speed excitement”, their newest model maintains typical Ducati high performance and sleek style with ergonomic design and cutting-edge technology. Ducati is also featuring its new Multistrada 1200 Enduro, equipped with adapting power and suspension as well as ABS and traction control that ensures the operator can tackle any kind of terrain.
  • BRP is also rolling out its cruiser line with additions of the F3-T and F3 Limited models to its existing F3, F3-S Special Series vehicles in the Can-Am Spyder F3 line-up.  These new models are said to be loaded with comfort and convenience features, offering greater freedom, flexibility, and extra cargo space.
  • Suzuki has plans to showcase its newest retro cruiser, the TU250X. This classically styled, fuel efficient motorcycle comes with spoked wheels, a round headlight and low-slung tapered muffler.
  • For those looking to find a crossover bike, Victory has rolled out its 2016 Cross Country 8-Ball featuring creature comforts such as spacious lockable saddlebags, a sound system that can handle wind and engine rumble and a 106ci Freedom V-Twin.
  • KTM is bringing the new Freeride 250R to the show – a bike that reportedly bridges the gap between a full-size enduro and trials. As its name suggests, the Freeride is supposed to give riders confidence to navigate difficult and trials-type terrain and also provide the comfort needed for all-day riding.
  • Finally, Italian manufacturer Piaggio is featuring its Fly 50, a light and easy-to-handle bike for those riders looking for those features. Considered sleek nd stylish, the Fly 50 comes with a four stroke HI-PER4 50cc engine for maximum efficiency and impressive economy.  The safety features include a protective shield and rigid steel tube frame.  The Fly 50 is both agile and stable which is great in the city as well as on rougher roads.

P90181033_bmw-s-1000-xr-05-Spectators can expect to see their favorites at the show like Team Empire who is back by popular demand, She Rides Night, running Friday from 5 pm to 9 pm where those in attendance can enter the draw for a 2016 Kawasaki Ninja 300, the Yamaha Riding Academy which is an exclusive feature at the Vancouver show, and the grand prize giveaway – a 2016 Bonneville 800 Street Twin provided by Triumph Motorcycles and valued at $12,000.

  9. Kevin

    I have gone to the bike show every year with my dad. From when it was back in the p.n.e. Forum buildings and then at bc place. Now that I’m a dad I take my son every year it’s like a pilgrimage he is now 19 and looking at moving out in the near future. I would love to take all three generations to the bike show again before I lose the ability to take both the youngest and oldest generations to the show.

  10. Because my little 10-year-old darling daughter wants to pick out a motorcycle for her daddy, so that he can pick her up from school on it next summer.

  11. Lisa

    I’ve just moved here from England to be with my boyfriend who loves motorcycles, this would be a great surprise for him and for me to learn more about them.

  12. Sean

    My dad loves bikes but hasn’t been able to ride or make it the show these last few years due to illness. He has finally fully recovered and can get back into riding again! Would be a great surprise if the whole family could go with him to celebrate :).

  13. Carmen Alvarez

  20. Diana

    We are coming to Vancouver for the weekend to see our newly engaged daughter. Her and I want to go wedding dress shopping. Her dad and fiancee do not. Winning these tickets would be great for the 2 guys and we would join them and look at motorcycles after we went dress shopping!
    It’s also about time for a new motorcycle so it’s good to look at what’s out there!
    Win, win situation!

    Both my husband and I ride motorcycles. We are interested in buying new bikes, so winning tickets to see this show would be fantastic.

    Been going to the Motorcycle Show for years. Since I take my family with me, I end up having to eat the full $60 + costs of driving from DT to Abbostford. Could always use a break. I’ve been riding for years and am looking to finally bring my kids into the sport as they age into it in the coming years.

  24. Susan
