Come to see the latest range of Watsonian Sidecars at Motorcycle Live 2016.
Watsonian have been making great British sidecars in the Heart of England since 1912 and will be exhibiting a range of new and current models at Motorcycle Live.
From lightweight single seaters, like the GP Manx and Meteor, to the wide-bodied GP700, which is capable of carrying an adult + child or two children, Watsonian produce sidecars that are suitable for motorcycles and scooters, large and small.
Fitting kits are available for a huge variety of modern and classic machines, including the latest Triumph Street Twin & Bonneville T120, Vespa GTS300 and BMW R nineT.
All sidecars are hand-built in Watsonian’s factory in the Cotswolds, with durable and easy to maintain glass fibre bodies, steel frames and independent suspension.
If you’re new to the world of three-wheels, Watsonian can provide instruction for novices at their factory showrooms.
Details of new models to be shown will be announced here on the Watsonian website.
Motorcycle Live will be held at the Birmingham NEC from 17-27 November 2016. Find out more here.
Modern Bonnevilles have been to most popular choice of motorcycle for the British manufacturer’s sidecars since their launch in 2000, thanks to their classic styling, low centre of gravity and torquey parallel twin engine.
Powered by a bigger 1200cc liquid cooled motor, the new T120 puts out 18% more power with 54% extra torque, making it even more attractive for sidecar work. The development team at Watsonian went back to basics to create a fitting kit for the all-new frame on the T120, which has a shorter wheelbase than the previous model. The new kit is suitable for attaching Watsonian’s Silk chassis, found on the Monza and Grand Prix sidecars, to the Triumph twin.
The model pictured is a GP700, a wide-bodied sidecar with a 700 mm bench seat, suitable for an adult + child. Its fibreglass body retains the traditional octagonal nose shape from the 1930s and is trimmed with polished aluminium beading. The lockable boot measures 60 x 610 x 400 mm, providing plenty of secure luggage space. It is fitted with a a 15” wheel with stainless spokes. .
