March 1 2013.

The March issue of Motorcycle Trader is landing with trade and industry subscribers from today.

The front section of the new magazine is packed with UK industry and business news and new product information, before flowing through to a profile of R&G, one of the best known brands in crash protection, followed by an interesting feature on the new-look National Motorcycle Dealers Association (NMDA) formerly known as the Motorcycle Retailers Association. Trader also gives an overview of the newly formed Wheels to Work Association and its regular columnists Mark Williams, W T Klame and Sticky air their independent views, whilst Sean Kerr continues his reports on the Chinese motorcycle industry.

Where Trader stands head and shoulders above the rest, is with its hard-hitting business articles that are researched and selected to provide salient information for anyone in the motorcycle industry involved in running a business. This month the Trader team has turned the spotlight on its own publishers and tells a harrowing and personal story of how easy it is to fall victim to employee dishonesty and how, in the wrong hands, online banking can be open to abuse. It is a compelling read and may have many businesses making a quick review of their own accounts systems.

The Trader Directory provides an up-to-date A-Z of companies, and the latest new vehicle registration statistics give a breakdown by style and engine band, with a snapshot of the top-performing models and manufacturers in January 2013.

The March 2013 issue of Motorcycle Trader will be available to read online on Monday March 4 at
