Superbike Stars Meet and Greet at this Weekend’s Toronto Motorcycle Show

Several of the top guns on the Mopar Superbike Championship tour are on-hand today at The Motorcycle Show Toronto, at the Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place on Toronto’s lakeshore.

Today, the Mopar CSBK booth at the show will feature autograph sessions with front-running competitors from the Feature category in this season’s six round National Championship Series.

Reigning Superbike National Champion Ben Young of Collingwood, ON, will defend his number one plate in 2020 for the Scot-Build BMW Motorrad team.  BMW has an all-new S1000RR superbike for 2020, and the bike that Young recently tested at the JenningsGP venue in Northern Florida is on display in the Mopar booth. Young is also signing his new Liqui Moly lubricants race poster, and will do the same next weekend as the show tour heads for the Palais de Congress in downtown Montreal, Quebec.

Last year, Trevor Daley of Mississauga, ON, made the switch to lead the Suzuki Canada effort aboard his OneSpeed-built GSX-R1000R. “T-Rev” returns to lead the Suzuki program after his break-through 2019 season for the former Amateur National Superbike Champion. As well as signing autographs and body parts in the booth, Trevor will also show off his revamped, re-livered “Gixxer,” also fresh from pre-season testing in the U.S.A.

Tomas Casas made his debut on a full-blown 1000cc Superbike in 2019, the two-time Liqui Moly Pro Sport Bike middleweight National Champ earning a podium in his first Feature season aboard the YZF-R1.  Backed by Parts Canada, Casas just renewed his deal with Yamaha Motor Canada, and is celebrating with a trip to the Motorcycle Show Toronto.

Other Pros in attendance today include Steven Nickerson of Hamilton, like Casas a graduate of the ladder system of Canadian competition starting with the much-missed Honda CBR125R Challenge.  Nickerson did his first full season in the Pro Superbike class with his uniquely-livered Dewildt Honda CBR100RR in 2019.

Popular Guyanese-based racer Elliot Vierria is also at the Show today, getting ready for the upcoming Mopar CSBK National tour.  Vierria expected to ride in the U.S. in early spring with his recently-acquired Yamaha YZF-R6.

Royal Distributing’s Michael Leon of Montreal has also been spotted at the show. Leon was a top runner in 2019 aboard his BMW S1000RR.

The Motorcycle Show Toronto continues through until 8 PM tonight and is open from 10 AM to 5 PM on Sunday.
