The MotoGP rider Jorge Martin will attend next month’s London Motorcycle Show as the event's guest of honour, as he shows off Alpinestars’ full-face track helmet, the Supertech R10.

Martin, runner-up in the 2023 MotoGP World Championship to Ducati stablemate Francesco Bagnaia, has been in Alpinestars’ leathers since he was in Moto3, and swapped out Shark for Alpinestars in the crash hat department last year. Jack Miller also began using Alpinestars gear last year, including the new helmet, and Pedro Acosta has parted from his long-time sponsor MT Helmets to wear Alpinestars’ Supertech R10 in his debut MotoGP campaign in 2024.

Martin’s appearance in London will be a rare occasion for the Spaniard to be out publicly in the UK, and visitors of the show on 16 February will be able to enter a prize draw in which 10 people will be able to win what the London Motorcycle Show calls “a money-can’t-buy VIP experience with Jorge Martin and Alpinestars.”

Martin won’t be the only racer in London next month, as Isle of Man TT legends John McGuinness and Peter Hickman are also set to attend. 2023 BSB runner-up Glenn Irwin will be there, too, as well as former racer and current Eurosport presenter James Whitham.

Motorcycling TV stars Charley Boorman, Henry Cole, Allen Millyard are all also a part of the line-up, alongside attending manufacturers including Triumph, Suzuki, BMW, CFMoto, Harley-Davidson, BSA, Kawasaki, Kymco, Royal Enfield, Yamaha, and Norton.

The London Motorcycle Show will take place on 16-18 February 2024. Tickets for are available now, from £25 per person. Children four-and-under go free, and there’s free indoor motorcycle parking available.
