Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Concept

Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Concept

With the biggest motorcycle show in the country kicking off this month, the Suzuki stand at Motorcycle Live will boast another action-packed and interactive display, playing host to new models, race bikes, and a number of exciting competitions and giveaways.

Taking centre-stage will be the V-Strom 1000 Concept, which was recently unveiled in Cologne at Intermot. Taking design cues from the iconic DR Big Dakar Racer, the V-Strom 1000 Concept is set to arrive in 2014, boasting an new engine and an all-new frame.

Alongside the V-Strom 1000 will be the new models that join the range for next year. For 2013 a brand new cruiser joins the line up in the form of the Intruder C1500T, while the Hayabusa changes include Brembo brakes ABS, too.

A special edition GSX-R1000 also arrives for 2013, commemorating the production of one million GSX-R units, and a new Burgman 650 Executive luxury scooter joins the line-up.

Suzuki GB’s Marketing Manager George Cheeseman commented, “We’re very excited about giving these models their UK debut at Motorcycle Live. The special edition GSX-R1000 is testament to the popularity of the GSX-R range, and we’re really looking forward to showcasing the V-Strom 1000 Concept after it’s unveiling in Cologne.”

From the 2012 racing season a host of bikes and riders will be in attendance. The 2012 World Endurance Championship winning GSX-R1000 will be joined by Josh Brookes GSX-R1000 British Superbike machine and Guy Martin’s road race bike too.

Guy will also make an appearance on the Suzuki stand on the final Sunday of the show, to present the winner of the signed helmet competition with their prize. You can still enter by clicking here. But while a signed Guy Martin AGV K3 is a big giveaway, there are a number of other chances to win over the course of the show.

The t-shirt and hoody in the Barry Sheene clothing range will be up for grabs. All you have to do is take a picture of Suzuki at Motorcycle Live on your smartphone and tweet it to @SuzukiBikesUK with the #SuzukiLive and #MotorcycleLive hash tags. The winner will be picked after the show based on the most interesting, creative and unique photos received.

With so many bikes on the Suzuki stand there will be a chance to win daily, by photographing the designated Bike of the Day. Ranging from the V-Strom 1000 Concept to Guy Martin’s GSX-R1000, a certain bike will be designated as the Bike of the Day. All you need to do is follow Suzuki Bikes UK on Twitter and tweet @SuzukiBikesUK with a photograph of the Bike of the Day and the hashtags #SuzukiBikeOfTheDay and #MotorcycleLive. Each day the winner will receive a Parts and Accessories voucher to the value of £100.

Sticking with the Twitter theme, there are thousands of Tyco Suzuki posters and wristbands up for grabs throughout the course of the show. To claim yours, all you have to do is buy one. But instead of handing over cash, you’ll need to tweet. Once you’ve tweeted the fact that you’re picking up your free Tyco Suzuki wristband and Guy Martin or Josh Brookes poster, they’re yours.

George Cheeseman added, “After we launched our social media platforms at Motorcycle Live last year, it’s great to be here a year on with such a strong and loyal following. We’ve been able to offer a range of exciting giveaways throughout the year, and we’re pleased to be able to continue this over the duration of the show with some excellent prizes up for grabs for our fans and followers.”

The Suzuki display can be found on stand 3J30. The entire 2013 range will be on display, with hospitality provided by the Tyco Suzuki race team. The Suzuki Owners Club will also be present at the show, accompanying the main Suzuki stand to create an excellent Suzuki area of the show.
