As predictable as the leaves turning in the Fall, the U.S. motorcycle show season begins this week with the AIMExpo. This is where the industry – and the lucky civilians who live close enough to Columbus, Ohio, to attend the public days this weekend – gives the U.S. market its first glimpse of what it has in store for the 2018 model year. While we’ve already had some announcements from BMW, with its K1600B introduction; Yamaha, introducing the Star Venture and unveiling the Eluder; and Harley-Davidson, updating its entire Dyna assimilating Softail line, that doesn’t mean the OEMs don’t have other surprises up their sleeves.

Let’s not forget the motorcycle aftermarket, which is a real driving force behind the two-wheeled industry. We expect to see things ranging from new offerings from major players, like Sena and Bell, to Mom-and-Pop outfits sharing their own unique solutions for riders. Over the course of our two days of media access, we’ll bring you the breadth and depth of what we find at the AIMExpo.

We should also note that 2017 will be the AIMExpo’s first year in Columbus. After holding the Expo in Orlando, FL from 2013-2016, the show moves to a new city that is more centrally located to much of the country, hopefully making it possible for more attendees to make the pilgrimage in 2017.
