Prince William visits Motorcycle Live

The Duke sits on a Duke ...Superleggera

PRINCE William visited the Motorcycle Live show at Birmingham's NEC on Saturday.

The Duke of Cambridge looked around several manufacturers’ stands including Triumph, KTM and Ducati, where he sat on the limited-edition 1199 Superleggera.

Prince William - along with his brother Harry - is a motorcycle enthusiast and has been spotted riding bikes such as his Ducati 1198 SP and Triumph Daytona 600.

Dean Linehan, Exhibitions Director of MCI Exhibitions said: “It has been an absolute pleasure to welcome His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge to Motorcycle Live. We know he likes motorcycles and that he rides when he can, but he showed a great knowledge of and appreciation for the UK’s motorcycle industry”.

At the end of the show, The Duke was presented with a wooden balance bike for his son Prince George of Cambridge. The bike was Royal themed with a Royal Coat of Arms emblem printed on the side of the bike and had crown-shaped tyre valve caps.

Linehan added: “It’s been a fantastic week for all the show’s exhibitors and visitors and we’ll be sorry to close Motorcycle Live tomorrow. But today’s royal visit will certainly give the whole industry a massive boost as we head into a really exciting 2014.”
