By far the greatest American motorcycle racer of all times, Kenny Roberts is also the first American to win a FIM MotoGP championship in 1978, and has won three consecutive championships until 1980.

As a center figure in the celebrations of the first-ever AIMExpo, Kenny Roberts will be the image of the pre-event publicity and promos, and will play a major role in the grand opening of the show.

Marketplace Events Motorcycle Group, the AIMExpo producer, has commissioned a Yamaha Star Bolt customized in the King's yellow racing livery which will be given away at the show.

The AIMExpo will take place in Orlando, Florida October 16-20, 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center - Halls WA3, 4 & B1.

On September 11, Warn Industries officially became the 350th exhibitor at the AIMExpo, but with more than one month remaining, the numbers might still grow: "we’re looking ahead to our 400th exhibitor!” Cinnamon Kernes, show director, added.
