The 2012 Australian Motorcycle Expo was a big hit in Melbourne.

The Australian Motorcycle Expo’s return to Melbourne was met with an exceptional response from visitors and exhibitors alike with just on 20,000 two-wheel enthusiasts passing through the doors over a bumper three-day period.

Last hosted at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in 2010, anticipation ahead of the event was high with over 150 exhibitors signing on to sell out the capacity floor space early.

Newly-appointed exhibition manager Mal Jarrett thanked a record number of exhibitors for their dedicated and effort to make the Australian Motorcycle Expo Melbourne a success.

“The Australian Motorcycle Expo Melbourne could not be what it is without the significant investment of time and resources by our exhibitors who strive to create the best experience possible for visitors,” said Jarrett.

“It was another fantastic Exhibition and we’ve been pleased with the initial feedback from exhibitors who are already enquiring about opportunities to be a part of the next event.

“The range of guests, Action Arena talent and attractions helped to create a great atmosphere and one that many have come to associate with the Australian Motorcycle Expo.

“We’d like to recognise in particular our presenting sponsor, QBE Insurance, for their ongoing support of the event and the industry as a whole.

“We’d also like to both welcome and thank Isuzu D-Max, the event’s Official Vehicle Partner, and GoPro, the event’s Official Action Sports Camera, for their input and support.”

The presence of all major motorcycle brands m, an upgrade or simply a new toy for the garage.

A large selection of 2013 model motocross and enduro bikes were on display from the leading manufacturers including Honda, Husaberg, Husqvarna, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki and Yamaha, making the show a ‘must-see’ for riders in the market for a first bike.

The championship winning bikes of Josh Coppins, Jay Marmont, Ford Dale and Gavin Faith were also on display, along with Daniel Milner’s A4DE winning Yamaha and the Australian Safari-winning Honda CRF450X of Jake Smith.

The next event on the calendar is the 2013 Sydney Motorcycle and Scooter Expo. In the coming months details will also be made available about the return of the Australian Motorcycle Expo to Brisbane in 2014.
