The International Motorcycle and Scooter Show in association with The Sun has launched a new and improved website for the 2005 show which starts on October 28.
The new site - contains up-to-date information on the many new features that will be on show at the NEC this year, as well as an image gallery from the 2004 show, directions to the show, and an all-new on-line biking game.
'Kid Canyon's Cunning Stunt' is the new game which has been developed by marketing agency The Real Adventure and can be accessed for free by any visitor to the site Players take control of 'Kid Canyon' to make him jump his stunt bike as far as possible while avoiding obstacles such as UFOs and airplanes or getting boosts from birds and balloons. Just like real life..... Players are invited to pit their skills against their mates' and then post their scores on a leader board. The ten best scores registered before the start of the show will each receive a pair of Preview Day tickets. Why not take a look and give it a go!
The new-look website reflects the change in direction taken by the motorcycle show in 2005. This year the show promises to be the most interactive visitor experience ever, with bikes from the top manufacturers available to try out free of charge on a host of different terrains, including a road course outside the NEC grounds, an off-road track and a supermoto course. Participants will have to pass a compulsory alcohol breathalyser test and produce a valid driving licence.
The countdown to the show is now well and truly underway with less than five weeks to go. Organisers are gearing up for the biggest launch of new bikes ever seen in the UK, with many of the major manufacturers set to showcase new models for the first time to a British audience. Details of several global launches from the very top manufacturers will be announced in the next couple of weeks, with all biking eyes set to turn towards the Birmingham NEC at the end of October.
