    David, thanks for the post I would have missed the event otherwise. I went Thursday 02.04...
    Below a few pics: a selective vision of the event.

    The motorcycle hall hosts girlie-dance shows contrary to the others halls devoted to cages.
    Honda girls:

    Honda 's promotion was also strongly based on the local racing hero Ratthapark Wilairot from Chonburi
    [​IMG]

    Besides girls there were some interesting prototypes like this pliable scooter (Yamaha)
    [​IMG]

    And this:
    [​IMG]

    Not to mention the enduro scooter:
    [​IMG]

    This is not a prototype:
    [​IMG]

    The brand Sachs is strong on design. Here the MadAss:
    [​IMG]

    Still with Sachs an incursion into classic bikes for less than 50 000 Bahts:
    [​IMG]

    The brand also offers a dirt bike:
    [​IMG]

    Zhongchen too but less girls on the Chinese maker stand (Confucianist austerity?)
    [​IMG]

    Kawasaki plans to introduce a 150cc trail bike and a 140cc cross bike. I asked them about any plan to sell the 400 KLX... Negative answer. It's a shame.

    Bangkok based "Dirt Shop" is present

    And of course one can eat get massage, buy business shirts and shoes, tools, etc... And sleep.

    Hi Pee, KLX140 Motocross has been available for Some Time. The KLX 150 was a nice little Bike but when I asked they Said it is Made in Indonesia and Won't be Sold here :cry:

    Hi Ian,
    They were doing a survey about the KLX 150; asking people they would be ready to pay for it...

    Hi Pee, Bring it on then I would definitely Buy one if the Price was Right :?: Perfect Bike for Young Starters or for The Wife to test the Waters of Off Road Riding :wink: And It Would have a Legal Plate :D

    According to the attendant most people said they would pay 70 000-80 000 Bahts, with rego/plate for the KLX 150...
    It's a pity about the KLX 400. That's the one I really would like to see in the showroom.
    Cheers
