MOTORCYCLISTS, GET TOGETHER!
THE MONTREAL MOTORCYCLE SHOW IS FINALLY BACK FROM FEBRUARY 24 TO 26
Montreal, February 2, 2023 – A recurring sign that the riding season is quickly approaching, the Montreal Motorcycle Show will finally be back from February 24 to 26 at the Palais des congrès. All motorcyclists say it: riding a motorcycle makes you happy… and so does getting together with people who share this passion!
Aprilia, BMW, Can-Am, Harley-Davidson, Honda, KTM, Moto Guzzi, Suzuki, Triumph, Vespa and Yamaha are more than excited to unveil their products and novelties to the fans.
“We’re really looking forward to presenting our 2023 Show,” says Vincent Trépanier, director of sales and marketing for the Motorcycle Show. In addition to the new bikes to admire, we are renewing our tradition of presenting several attractions and a vast choice of equipment and destinations for the upcoming season. Gear up! We’ve put together an edition for all tastes, age-groups and riding styles.”
Adventure in the spotlight this year
The destination still matters, but so does, if not more so, the way you get there! Adventure motorcycling enthusiasts have understood this. This segment continues to grow and the Show will make room for it with the EXPLR adventure motorcycle area. Parts and accessories, camping equipment, safety equipment and technology will be on display. Visitors will receive advice on how to organize their luggage, safety and navigation, and tire changes in isolated areas. Organized in collaboration with Marc Chartrand of Ridaventure, this unique experience promises to be very popular.
The Quebec custom scene at Hangar 17
Hangar 17 is now a must at the Show! In collaboration with ONELAND magazine, this space gives a privileged access to the Quebec custom scene and represents the best and most authentic of its culture, with an eye towards discovering new roads. Stop by for a drink and meet local builders and artists who live and breathe the two-wheeled culture.
Everything for the kids!
This edition is the perfect opportunity to introduce children to the passion of two wheels. The Yamaha Riding Academy is back for ages 6 to 12. A great way to introduce them to an exciting sport in complete safety. The 3 to 12 year olds will not be left out with the Stacyc Test Zone. This electric bike bridges the gap between traditional pedal bikes and bicycles/motorcycles. The Zone will feature a track, STACYC demo bikes, and friendly, caring staff. Finally, the Strider Adventure Zone will allow little ones ages 18 months to 5 years to develop their fundamental bike handling skills in a safe and friendly environment. Parents will enjoy watching their children weave around tires or ride up and down ramps. Al of these activities are included in the price of admission.
And that’s not all!
– The show will have the chance to welcome Ben Milot, a true icon of freestyle motocross, for breathtaking demonstrations of electric trials.
– Another exclusive new feature is the Original Garage V-Twin Performance Zone. This up-and-coming Quebec City company will be presenting eight motorcycles exclusively in Montreal and Toronto to illustrate the infinite possibilities of customizing cruisers with the help of its machined parts and accessories.
– Also, a dozen vintage motorcycles from before 1990 will turn heads.
– And let’s not forget the She Rides Night on Friday, February 24. Half price admission for women starting at 5pm.
