Okay, it’s still winter out there, but there’s something to look forward to next weekend, even if it involves two wheels rather than four. The Montreal Motorcycle Show is back. It will be running from noon on Friday, February 27 to 5 pm Sunday, March 1 at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal. Adult admission (15 and up) is $15, tax included, students and seniors $11, kids 6-14 $9, and under 6 free when accompanied by an adult. There’s also a $38 family pass (two adults, two kids), and women get in for half price after 5 on Friday, for She Rides Night.
There will be several manufacturers showing off their latest models, including Aprilia, BMW Motorrad, Can-Am BRP, Ducati, Deeley Harley-Davidson, Honda, Indian Motorcycle, KTM, Kawasaki, Moto Guzzi, MV Agusta, Piaggio, Polaris, Suzuki, Triumph Motorcycles, Victory, Yamaha and Vespa. You’ll also be able to find equipment, accessories, and clothing on display. Clubs and federations will be on hand as well. And there’s the Yamaha Academy, where kids 6-12 can learn to ride the new Yamaha TT-R. Moto trials (riding through an obstacle course on a purpose built bike) will also be demonstrated.
