Motorcycle Auctions – Frequently Asked Questions
Will Yamaha be at Motorcycle Live?
Yamaha pulled out of Motorcycle Live in 2020 and didn’t exhibit at the 2021 show either. It looks like Yamaha UK aren’t backing one of the UK’s largest motorcycle shows. The costs and logistics involved in planning and running a stand at the NEC Bike Show are huge. Perhaps COVID-19 has put a temporary pause to Yamaha’s relationship with Motorcycle Live or could this be a turning point, with other manufacturers following suit in 2022?
