2013 Halifax International Motorcycle wraps up

The 2013 Halifax International Motorcycle Show wrapped up this Sunday and turnout was affected by the snowstorm that hit the east coast on Saturday and Sunday but the die-hard enthusiasts still made it out and enjoyed easy access to motorcycles from every brand.

Check out our big picture gallery from the show. The Honda FB6 was definitely a stand-out motorcycle for me. It's impressive looking and feels all day comfortable.

One lucky attendee took home a Honda CBR250R as a door prize. His odds were a little better because of all the snow!

Halifax International Motorcycle Show brings motorcycles to downtown


The Halifax International Motorcycle Show is kicking-off their inaugural gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts at the Cunard Centre on February 17-19, 2012. Industry leading motorcycle  manufacturers and accessory products will be on site and under one big roof.Major manufacturers and dealer representatives will be there to answer your questions and provide you with an opportunity to throw a leg over the latest machines or try on the latest gear.

With 45,000 square foot of column free floor space the Cunard Centre sits on the scenic Halifax waterfront with big bright windows overlooking the harbour. The event and venue offer up a powerful mixture of salty sea air and visual stimulation. Anticipated attendance is expected to approach 20,000 and draw attendees from all the Atlantic provinces and beyond.

With the top motorcycle manufacturer product lines represented this event is the first of its kind east of Quebec.The show has attracted a lot of industry attention and support in this first year. Kawasaki Canada chose the event as one of the few venues to bring their national tour. They will be showcasing the hottest 2012 models like the supersport ZX-14R, KX450F motocross, cruisers from their revered Vulcan ine-up, street/touring, dual-purpose, and off-road motorcycles.

Event organizer Tim Leslie indicates,"Halifax is the gateway to Atlantic Canada, and its largest city. There's a vibrant and active motorcycle culture here, which makes Halifax the perfect location for a world-class motorcycle show. We're excited to be bringing the best the motorcycle world has to offer to downtown Halifax and already making plans for next year!"

With motorcycles from all the top brands, this event will be the first, and only, opportunity to see many of these machines in Nova Scotia before they appear in dealerships in the spring.There's going to be some rare models too that you might not otherwise get a chance to see at all except in the pages of a magazine. Motorcycles like the limited production Norton Commando 961. With production of this bike limited to 200 models they're sure to be very rare. Zero Motorcycles is sending some of the first production 2012 electric motorcycles in Canada to Halifax to be displayed at the show.

Aside from all the special interest motorcycles, enthusiasts of every level will find something to surprise and delight from new 2012 models and the latest in accessories to unique touring destinations. Cruisers, sport bikes, off-road, trials, touring, sport/adventure touring, even 2WD sidecar motorcycles - there's going to be something for everybody.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran motorcyclist or just somebody with a passing interest there will be something to excite you at the Halifax International Motorcycle Show.

Royal Enfield - Hand Painted Tank video

Came across this video of a guy hand painting a Royal Enfield tank and it's pretty amazing to watch this guy. There's people talking around him, touching the tank at points even.  No special equipment - just a brush, some paint, and a wooden table top.

Truly impressive demonstration of craftsmanship and precision!

Royal Enfield film to be released

We heard from the folks at Royal Enfield. They've got a video coming out that they'd like you to check out.  It's beautifully filmed and promotes the brand in a unique way.

Here's what they had to say:

Royal Enfields are a rare breed in an age of mass-produced, user-friendly predictability. These are mechanical motorcycles, handcrafted with love, engineered with purpose, and designed with character is reinforced by Royal Enfield's cultural DNA - by where it was born, and by where it is now built. Its classic British pedigree shows in every line, while the gleaming new aluminum engine hints at the devotion that has enabled this legendary marque to thrive in the outskirts of Chennai


This film -which will be released on the web and in select cinemas - is a tribute to the wonderful people who build, sell, ride and maintain these beloved machines, and a heartfelt tribute to the city that Royal Enfield calls home.

Enjoy!

Royal Enfield coming to Canada

India based Royal Enfield, the motorcycle division of the Eicher Group, if reportedly set to export motorcycles to some new markets this year, because of the potential for increased demand it sees abroad.

“We will export our 500cc international models to new markets such as Canada, Argentina, Russia and Israel this year,” Shaji Koshy, general manager (divisional), sales and marketing, Royal Enfield, said.

The motorbike maker already exports to several countries such as the UK, the US, Germany, and Italy among others. The firm exported 2,110 units last year and expects the number to increase by 20 per cent this year.

Royal Enfield is also planning to launch two models by year-end or early next year. They also plan to add eight more dealers to its present tally of 149 by year-end.
