The June issue of Motorcycle Trader lands from today.

The quality news and information-packed 100-page Motorcycle Trader is crammed with industry-related features, news, facts and figures and, of course, the unique and bang-up-to-date Motorcycle Trader Directory.

This month, we're reporting on the good things we're hearing from wholesalers and retailers alike. Take VE (UK), for instance; this year, the company is celebrating its 20th anniversary and looks set to remain strong for the next 20. There is also an emergence of new, stylish and low-cost smaller bikes and scooters. In our 'Bucking the Trend' series, we profile a new-to-these-shores brand in the form of WK, a new brand of two-wheelers from Quadzilla importer Fast Toys.

Following on from last month's government-funded apprenticeship schemes, we took a look at Remit; a mobile service that offers a different type of motorcycle training provision.

Continuing the new-product tyre coverage, we sent Ian Kerr to test the all-new Continental ContiRoadAttack2 at the German manufacturer's Contidrom test facility. His report can be read in the new issue, together with comment from a 'real world' biker who has been busily clocking up miles on the new rubber.

Mike Jackson visited Peter Sheen, who in his tenure as director general of the Motorcycle Association thwarted the potentially disastrous plans of Peter Bottomley, Transport Minister of the time, to make the fitment of leg protectors compulsory.

The MCIA still provides a necessary function and these days, the industry's association is joined by retailer and rider groups, many of which are of great value to the trade. We give the low down on who and what these various groups are and what they do.

With event previews, what's on calendar, news, new products, regular columnists and Business Journal, which this month covers business credit ratings and what to do when a health and safety inspector calls, there's plenty for the industry professional in the June issue of Motorcycle Trader.
