INTERMOT is the event of the year for every motorcyclist. And for the industry, the opportunity to meet an audience with a maximum of enthusiasm and high incomes, which they also like to invest in new vehicles and products.
Because you ride a motorcycle with passion: you don't ride a motorcycle because you have to. You ride one becaus you want to.
And that is exactly why almost 220,000 people will be making their way to INTERMOT in Cologne: in order to see and test the newest machines, talk shop and enjoy the spectacular event programme. Their lived passion for motorised two-wheelers is what unites them all.
In 2018, the hip biker party will again be held in Dock One, with its relaxed atmosphere and industrial loft style.
Whether it's a bike, a quad bike or an e-bike – here, you can test it for all its worth. Thousands of test rides will be taken inside and outside the halls.
