Honda’s long-awaited VFR1200F, Yamaha’s reverse-engined YZ454F with the fuel-injector sitting at the front, BRP’s new Spyder Touring, and the Fischer MRX American-build sportbike with Ohlins rear suspension — those are among the new motorcycles that will be available for hands-on inspection at the Toronto Motorcycle Show, Dec. 11–13.
More than 150 exhibitors, including including Aprilia, BMW, BRP, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Hyosung, Kawasaki, KTM, Polaris, Suzuki, Triumph, Victory, and Yamaha will fill the South Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre at the MMIC show.
Other highlights will include Suzuki’s new Boulevard M50, GSX1250FA and SEA sport-touring models and off-road RMX450Z; Yamaha’s Rossi Replica R1 and Stratoliner Bagger Deluxe; Honda’s CBF600S; and an electric scooter by E-Max that has been approved for road use in Canada under the same rules as 49cc scooters.
Then there is the annual She Rides night, with free admission for women on Friday after 5 (which should be a general rule, everywhere); Extreme Globe, with young daredevils performing three times a day, if they survive; an appearance by Jason Britton, host of SuperBikes; the Yamaha Riding School for Kids; Bikes and Birds; and vintage displays by the Vintage Road Racing Association and the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group. You’ll also find all kinds of info on clubs at Rider Nation.
