The 2021 MCN London Motorcycle Show


It is with great sadness that we have to confirm the cancellation of the 2021 MCN London Motorcycle Show. The events team has been relentlessly exploring every avenue of opportunity in the hope of finding a way to run the show, but unfortunately all those avenues have now been exhausted. We must all follow the Government guidelines and the latest lock-down measures mean we are unable to run the event this year.

However, we are absolutely committed to bringing the MCN London Motorcycle Show back to life in 2022 – and plans are already underway to deliver our best show ever, dates for 2022 are still to be confirmed.

 If you have already booked tickets for 2021, they will be honoured for the 2022 event – you don’t need to do anything. If you are unable to make the 2022 dates, you will be able to get a refund.

Milo Dokmanovic, Kawasaki Motors UK Marketing Coordinator (PR), said

”It’s been an awesome platform for us to showcase our 2020 models, giving us fantastic customer feedback, especially for the new Ninja 1000SX and Z H2 machines. There’s been a lot of excitement around our stand, inevitably helped by the launch of our Roads and BSB teams, unveiled directly to visitors at the same time as the press

Rebecca Donohue, Head of Marketing and Carole Nash added,

“The 2020 Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show has been an incredible weekend and despite such severe weather conditions, it was fantastic to see so many bikers coming to see the latest machines and enjoy the thrilling live action on offer. 
We are incredibly proud to be a sponsor of the show and our stand was packed throughout the weekend with existing customers and possible new policyholders stopping by to learn more about Carole Nash, grab a coffee on us and get our latest 2020 calendar. We can’t wait to do it all again next year! Ride Safe everyone.”


Ducati UK Head of Marketing Debbie Wiggins explained;

“We’ve had a very busy show with a high level of engagement from customers, especially for the Streetfighter and Panigale V2, plus interest in the Scrambler 1100 Pro. Another strong event for the organising team.”

Triumph Marketing Coordinator, Ruth Speller, added;

“The show gave us the perfect stage for a first showing of our Tiger 900 machine which was the basis of our daily ‘Tiger Talks’ which were extremely popular. Our Guy Martin Great Escape display also really pulled in the crowds as something different.”



Rich Austin, owner of Austin Exhausts,

“Once again MCN supported our bike ‘start-ups’ which definitely bring a crowd and add to the atmosphere. We had a live and loud unveiling of our 2020 KTM Super Duke exhaust which really blew people away… here’s to more of the same next year!”
