Endurance on display at the Paris Motorcycle Show
The Paris Motorcycle Show is on until 14 October. Many FIM EWC riders are visiting the show and several of the bikes in the championship are on display.
The 2017-2018 FIM endurance world champion and 2018 Bol d’Or winner is the centrepiece of the Honda stand at the Paris Motorcycle Show. The manufacturer has created a special display for the F.C.C. TSR Honda France bike, flanked by the team’s 24 Heures Motos trophy and the one they won at last month’s Bol d’Or. The Japanese team’s riders Freddy Foray and Mike Di Meglio were present at Honda’s official presentation, alongside team manager Masakazu Fujii.
Some other riders are also putting in an appearance at the show. At the Suzuki stand, where the SERT Suzuki is on display, Suzuki Endurance Racing Team riders Vincent Philippe, Etienne Masson and Gregg Black were kept busy signing autographs. At the Kawasaki stand, the Webike Tati Team Trick Star riders Julien Enjolras and Kevin Denis, winners of the Supersport World Cup, did the same. Their ZX-10R occupies a prime spot between the Team SRC Kawasaki France bike and the one on which Jonathan Rea has just won his 4th Superbike world title.
Elsewhere at the show, the ACO stand has Junior Team Le Mans Sud Suzuki’s bike, the Suzuki #72, with riders Hugo Clère and Louis Rossi in attendance, and Moto Ain’s Yamaha with riders Roberto Rolfo, Alexis Masbou and Robin Mulhauser.
Kenny Foray (ERC-BMW Motorrad Endurance) also dropped by the show, while Honda Endurance Racing rider Gregory Leblanc and Team SRC Kawasaki France’s David Checa are expected to visit show next week.
