The November 2013 issue of Motorcycle Trader is now landing with the motorcycle trade and industry.

The new Trader carries an interview with Nick Mowbray, organiser of Mortons Media-owned Classic Bike Shows in which he talks about the appeal and growth of classic shows, and Trader’s product guide takes a look at often-overlooked, but essential, bike covers.

In News, WK Bikes announces its involvement in the quarter-litre market, Storm Buggies agrees terms to take on sole rights for Hammerhead, and the date is set for Intermot 2014.

The Business & Finance News and New Products sections are packed with everything you need to know from around the industry and beyond. Trader Business Journal covers Trading Guidelines and Alternative Financing, and Sean Kerr reflects on why some Chinese motorcycle brand names are ridiculed.

Columnist Mark Williams comments on the rise of online shopping, Klame mulls over the merits of a small-cc Triumph, the MCIA’s Stevie Muir welcomes the imminent arrival of Motorcycle Live, whilst Sticky ponders why it has lost its appeal for scooterists.
