Three-time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss today revealed plans to stage two of Australia's largest motorcycle exhibitions in Brisbane and Melbourne in 2014.

MOTO EXPO Brisbane will be held at Brisbane’s RNA Showgrounds on March 21-23 followed by MOTO EXPO Melbourne, which will be held at Melbourne Showgrounds on November 28-30, 2014.

MOTO EXPO Brisbane will feature over 100 exhibitors showcasing the largest range of motorcycles, scooters, ATV’s and UTV's as well as custom, vintage and classic bike displays. Visitors can see product launches, meet special guests and watch live demonstrations across the three days of the event.

"MOTO EXPO is a new and fresh approach to motorcycle exhibitions,” Bayliss said. “We have been working hard to create the perfect blend to showcase the motorcycle industry products and services, to enthusiasts and the wider community.

"Both the Brisbane and Melbourne Showgrounds offer newly renovated exhibition buildings and allow the exhibition to expand outdoors.

“The shows will come to life with test rides, safety demonstrations and racing. It is all there to create a great day out for the whole family," Bayliss explained.

The Brisbane event will also stage a superstars of motorcycling feature event – The 'Baylisstic Scramble' Dirt Track Teams challenge.

The Baylisstic Scramble feature event will take place on Saturday evening and entry into the show will grant access to the 20,000 seat stadium. Five teams of four riders will compete for points across many races to determine the team champions.

A full list of riders will be announced in coming months but visitors can expect to see some of Australia's most successful motorcycle athletes past and present competing along with support races that include, classic and vintage bikes, ATV, side by sides (UTV), mini moto, Freestyle Moto X, Trials and more.

“To compliment MOTO EXPO Brisbane we are bringing such a special competitive motorcycle event to the heart of Brisbane city which is going to be phenomenal,” Bayliss continued.

"The list of special guest riders competing are world class and I always look forward to dirt flat track racing, it's where it all began for me and many other riders, its bar to bar action.”

With the floor plan recently released, motorcycle manufacturers have thrown their support behind the innovative new event. KTM, Yamaha, BMW, Triumph, Ducati, Hyosung, Vespa/Piaggio and Arctic Cat are all confirmed with many more expected to sanction their attendance in the coming weeks.

Visitors to MOTO EXPO on Friday and Sunday won’t miss out on the Baylisstic Scramble action with special guest riders to participate in Friday practice sessions and demonstration races on the Sunday.

A huge entertainment program featuring freestyle motocross, freestyle trials and streetbike stunts will run over the three days of the event and for the kids, a special come and try zone will be created giving them the chance to get their first taste of motorcycle riding in a safe environment.
