WK Bikes returned to Motorcycle Live with two brand-new models for 2013 appearing alongside the full 2013 range of WK sports bikes, commuters, learner legal machines and scooters, plus a few top-selling models from the quad world from sister company, Quadzilla Quads.

WK sales manager Henry Mapelthorpe was delighted with visitor response at Motorcycle Live. "We have had a great response from consumers and trade visitors alike. The 2013 WK range has expanded into new and growing market sectors and the profile of our retail and trade visitors to the stand reflects this growing interest in the WK brand," he said.

The WK 650i made its debut at last year's event and this year it appeared alongside a race prepared version which is set to appear in the national mini-twins series and discussions are well advanced for a one make series also. The 650i is also the base for the all-new WK 650TR Sports/Tourer machine, sharing the same, sophisticated, liquid-cooled, fuel-injection, DOHC, eight-valve engine and advanced chassis design, but clothed in a sleek new set of full bodywork, with luggage options to suite the long-distance traveller.

Also new for 2013 on the stand was the WK 800 cruiser, a low, long and moody, chrome and black cruiser featuring a unique 750cc liquid-cooled, single cylinder, DOHC motor with fuel-injection and a fully automatic CV transmission with belt final drive.

WK is still looking to extend its dealer network in key areas. For further information contact Henry Maplethorpe on 01507 523900 or e-mail henry@wkbikes.com
