Preparations by Koelnmesse and the motorcycle & powersports community are picking up speed because in six months the gates to open for INTERMOT 2018 international motorcycle, scooter and e-bike fair.

Already, more than 300 exhibitors from 30 countries have confirmed their participation in the motorcycle event of the year, taking place from October 3-7 2018, including almost every renowned manufacturer and brand. Early planning and registration on the part of exhibitors not only secures those exhibitors’ stand areas of choice and thereby an ideal stand position in the fair halls, but also gives them the more advantageous terms available to early bookers. Anyone wanting to benefit from the special terms has until March 31, 2018 to do so: the second early bird phase ends then.

As the leading international platform for the industry’s global players, INTERMOT is the top stage for exclusive presentations of their new model intros and innovations. The show boasts more than 59,000 trade visitors from approximately 100 countries. Accordingly, almost every renowned company supplying vehicles, parts and accessories, clothing and equipment, as well as electric mobility products and services, have confirmed their participation at INTERMOT 2018. Among others, BMW Motorrad, Harley Davidson, Honda, Ducati, Kawasaki, KTM, Triumph and Yamaha will be in Cologne.

INTERMOT customized is being extended, having successfully positioned itself as a show-within-a-show format at the 2016 event. INTERMOT customized is a dedicated presentation platform for the steadily growing European custom scene. This is where café racers and modern custom-builds are represented. And the new INTERMOT bike, a Yamaha XV 950 R drag-style bike customized by Marcus Walz, will also be on display at INTERMOT for visitors to marvel at – including being seen in action in sprint races that will again take place in the outside grounds. Manufacturers such as BMW Motorrad, Harley Davidson, Kawasaki and Yamaha will again be showcasing their custom and heritage lines. And of course, as a part of INTERMOT customized, the AMD Championship of Custom Bike Building will once again take place this year.
