WMB Group At Motorcycle Live 2017
Published: December 13, 2017
Motorcycle Live took place for 8 days November at Birmingham NEC and is the biggest motorcycle show in the UK. It’s always a fantastic show, with thousands attending to see the latest bikes, accessories and innovations.
We get involved every year, without fail. This year, we delivered the bikes for a total of six manufacturers, including Harley-Davidson, KTM, Ducati, Suzuki, BMW and Triumph. 100% of our workforce gets behind the event, whether that’s travelling around the UK and Europe to collect and deliver bikes, or travelling to the NEC to help move bikes to where they need to be and even to help manufacturers to build their stands and ensure they look as visually appealing as possible.
In total, the WMB Group team helped to collect and deliver a total of 260 motorbikes, using a total of 12 trailers for Motorcycle Live, making us he biggest supplier of bikes for the event.
The most expensive bike that we helped to move was the BMW HP4 race bike at £68,000.
We created a fantastic video of our time at Motorcycle Live 2017, which you can watch below.
“Motorcycle Live is a great event for us. To be able to deliver so many bikes from a whole variety of locations around the UK and also from Italy is a fantastic opportunity. Exhibitions are a great way to showcase bikes and it’s great to meet so many like-minded people in one place.”
Our other Director, Paul Lusty, also spoke about the event:
“We might not have a stand at Motorcycle Live, but everyone knows that we’re there and everyone spots our vehicles – they stand apart from the rest. We’ve been working with these manufacturers for a long time now and they trust us with their bikes – as do all of our customers – and we’d never dream of missing out on assisting with Motorcycle Live. It’s the UK’s biggest motorcycle show for a reason.”
At WMB Group, we’ve always created and used our own motorcycle cleaning products to ensure that the bikes we deliver are showroom ready. We’ve now launched the WMB Pride range to the market so that motorcycle owners can have that quality showroom finish without compromising their bikes.
The Wash, Shine and Lube products are suitable for on and off-road bikes, with Revive working wonders on your kit, including your helmet, boots, jackets and gloves. Products range from £7.99 to £8.99.
All products were used on the bikes that we transported to the exhibition, ensuring that they looked showroom ready.
Ashley Parker, Team Manager for WMB Pride, commented on Pride being used at Motorcycle Live:
“It was a great opportunity to show manufacturers, dealers and even the general public what our products are capable of. We created the range as we simple weren’t impressed with the other products on the market, and we’ve always used our own. It’s exciting to finally turn this into something we can sell to anyone who loves bikes; everyone I met at Motorcycle Live was excited to hear about the premium range and couldn’t want to get their orders in.”
