With MOTO EXPO set to create a new benchmark for consumer exhibitions within Australia, Kawasaki Motors Australia has confirmed their participation in the 21-23 March event at Brisbane’s RNA Showgrounds.

Kawasaki joins a long list of motorcycle manufacturers supporting the fresh new approach to consumer motorcycle exhibitions in Australia.

Troy Bayliss Events general manger Mark Petersen said he was excited with the support received for both MOTO EXPO Brisbane and MOTO EXPO Melbourne.

“There are exciting times ahead for the motorcycle industry,” Petersen said. “MOTO EXPO Brisbane and Melbourne 2014 will reshape visitor experience at motorcycle exhibitions within Australia.

“We still have a lot of big announcement to come over the next few months, including exhibitors, sponsors, entertainment, guests, features and much more. MOTO EXPO is designed around the experience for the visitor and also gives exhibitors a fresh approach to showcasing their quality products.

“When visitors enter the show they need to be excited. Engaging stands with quality products are still the main focus of exhibitions, but these events now need to offer an array of live entertainment and interactive activities to afford visitors the real experience of the motorcycle industry,” Peterson continued.

Visitors to MOTO EXPO Brisbane will also be treated to an incredible evening of motorcycle entertainment with the Baylisstic Scramble Teams Challenge to play out on a purpose built dirt flat track inside the RNA Showgrounds.

Joining three-time World Speedway Champion Jason Crump, World Supersport and MotoGP race winner Chris Vermeulen and three-time world Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss as a team captain for the inaugural event is motocross legend Stephen Gall.

“The Baylisstic Scramble Teams Challenge should be a great event,” Gall said. “It will be good riding with my team mates at the RNA Showground’s in the heart of Brisbane City.

“It is a great way to showcase motorcycle racing with some of the top riders from many motorcycle disciplines.

“I’ve already been testing and developing my 2014 Yamaha YZ450F and look forward to racing at the Taree Classic and MOTO EXPO Baylisstic Scramble early 2014.

“Both events are great concepts and its good to see so many past and present racers plus all the supporters enjoying dirt track racing,” Gall added.

MOTO EXPO is set to be the largest motorcycle exhibition ever seen in Queensland. Visitors can expect to see latest products and services on display with up to 100 indoor exhibitors on display and an incredible interactive line-up.
