A selection of Valentino Rossi’s race bikes will be on display at the MCN London Motorcycle Show in 2015.

The six time MotoGP World Champion’s display in London features bikes from Aprilia, Honda, Yamaha and Ducati.

And it’s not just any old Rossi bike on display, with the machines he rode to World Championship glory in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2008 and 2009 all on show.

In addition, there will also be a mix of motorbikes from Rossi’s early racing days, including two Aprilia’s from the late 1990s before the World Championships changed to four-strokes.

It’s not all title-winning models on show though with the 2011 Factory Ducati Desmosedici 800cc also in the public eye.

The Desmosedici was the first bike Rossi rode throughout a full MotoGP season without winning a race.

And all eight models will be on display in London next year, when the MCN London Motorcycle Show runs from February 13 to 15.

As well as Rossi’s real race bikes, there will also be appearances from a number of major manufacturers, including Yamaha, Ducati and Triumph, at the event, alongside a range of equipment manufacturers.
