Sportster, Lambrettas at show


Rumble in the Convention Centre jungle

The Toronto Motorcycle Show will feature some new items this year, including Harley-Davidson’s latest Sportster, and Lambretta scooters.

Harley’s XR1200 Sportster was until recently a Europe-only model but has just been announced for Canada. The sporty Harley will be available for your consideration at this weekend’s T.O. show.

Lambretta is now being imported to Canada by a British Columbia outfit and is scheduled to make an appearance at the show in Due 50, Uno 50, and Uno 150 guises.

You can buy the Harley Sportster, or all three Lambretta scooters, for about the same price.

Oh, and we’ve also just heard that Dakar rider and purveyor of all things off-road-like, Lawrence Hacking will be at the World Enduro booth on Friday from 4-6 pm and Saturday from 3-5 pm to sign copies of his book, To Dakar and Back.

The Toronto Motorcycle Show is a product of the Motorcycle and Moped Industry Council and Canadian National Sportsmen’s Shows, and runs Dec. 12-14 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre’s south building.
