The world’s largest motorcycle show series will give enthusiasts from across the country a chance to see more than 600 new models of motorcycles, scooters, ATVs and watercraft from 19 major manufacturers. The latest gear and aftermarket parts will also be displayed, and visitors can take part in demo rides, new rider programs and enjoy interactive entertainment.
“Whether you are an avid motorcycle rider or a potential new rider, each show stop is bursting with the latest bikes, gear, safety equipment and information to get your motor running,” says show director Jeff D’Entremont. “With gas prices on the rise, motorcycles make an excellent fuel efficient transportation choice and the show is the best place to see these bikes up-close and talk to the industry experts about the options.”
Motorcycle.com attended last year’s IMS stop in Long Beach, Calif. where we got a look at the Ducati Monster 696, the Travertson V-Rex and a trio of three-wheeled machines in the Can-Am Spyder, the Piaggio MP3 400 and a concept scooter from Vectrix.
