October 3 2014.

Look out for the October 2014 edition of Motorcycle Trader, landing from today.

This month; David Bradford analyses developments within the UK motorcycle market over recent years and asks if it is at last showing signs of recovery. Trader finds out more about Essex-based distributor Jaycee and turns the spotlight on French helmet brand Roof, which is now part of the Putoline Distribution portfolio.

Upcoming shows are previewed and, amongst other news, Trader outlines how Mortons Media is on the acquisition trail buying the UK’s leading sportsbike title Fast Bikes and the Bristol Classic Car Show, whilst also adding a new auction to its Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show in February 2015. On the columns front, Sticky talks of a possible Indian buyout of Peugeot Scooters, Williams is impressed by a Crescent Suzuki initiative, Kerr assesses a competitive threat to China from India, Williams – again - considers the whole motorcycle licensing strategy and Stevie Muir confesses to being something of a Motorcycle Live groupie.

The October New Products pages are full of the latest showroom must-haves and elsewhere in the latest trade-only publication, you’ll find the August 2014 Registration Statistics, Trade Mart, The Trader Directory and a Business Journal covering reforms to sick leave and the necessity of online security measures.
