Here are three images from Davida MotoPhoto that haven’t been released on the web before and which we’ve included within the last few editions of our Davida Newsletter. From now on every Davida Newsletter will present an  image from the MotoPhoto Exhibition that has never been on the web before.

Being exclusive to the Davida newsletter we can guarantee you’ll be the first to receive the image a full 7 days before it goes onto the  Davida facebook page.

The Davida Newsletter also contains all the relevant information about our monthly competition. Our competition for September is your chance to win a D4Vi9A JPV visor.
