November 29 2013.

Look out for the December 2013 issue of Motorcycle Trader, complete with the indispensable and original large-size Motorcycle Trader Year Planner, dropping through your letter box over the weekend and early next week.

The final issue of the year carries reviews of the successful International Dirt Bike Show held at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire and the enormous CimaMotor Expo at Chongqing, China. Trader visits the new AJS Motorcycles facility and finds out about the company’s plans to expand its motorcycle line-up in 2014 and introduce a new clothing and accessories brand. Whilst on his travels, Ian Kerr MBE also popped into the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum and he explains why, in his opinion, it should be at the top of your motorcycle bucket list.

Elsewhere in the magazine, Sean Kerr assesses the European and Japanese motorcycle brands which are joining forces with Chinese manufacturers, the Events Calendar lists the shows and events you can’t afford to miss next year, Williams questions the importance of colour, Sticky covers the important topic of rider protection for scooterists, Klame talks about expensive bikes and classics and Stevie Muir outlines the work of the Motorcycle Industry Association’s contact centre.

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 the subject of leaving the EU and tax simplification and if you’re looking for a supplier, you’ll find one in Trade Mart or the Trader Directory.
