The 27th annual Cycle World International Motorcycle Shows will showcase all the latest and soon to be released 2008-model motorcycles from 19 manufacturers – the most ever – during a 13-city tour.
From Long Beach to New York, the Cycle World International Motorcycle Shows will provide enthusiasts an up close look at more than 600 new model street bikes, dirt bikes, cruisers, ATVs and watercraft.
A full lineup of features also is planned to provide a tremendous value for attendees, including new concept and vintage bikes, demo rides, freestyle motocross and more.
“Nineteen participating manufacturers on board makes this year’s tour the largest in the 27-year history of the show series,” said Group Show Director Jeff D’Entremont. “Attendees in all 13 cities will surely enjoy the addition of Hyosung, KTM and KYMCO brands to our already impressive lineup.”
Participating manufacturers include Aprilia, BMW, Buell, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, Moto Guzzi, MV Agusta, Piaggio, Star, Suzuki, URAL, Vespa, Victory and Yamaha.
For the 15th consecutive year, Cycle World is the title sponsor for the series and leading manufacturer Toyota will return for the 10th year as presenting sponsor.
Ehlert Publishing Group, parent company of Powersports Business, has announced its consumer all-terrain vehicle publications, ATV Magazine and ATV Sport, will be sponsoring the “ATV/Outdoor Showcase” area at the International Motorcycle Shows.
Each of the 13 shows will have a special area focusing on ATVs. One of this year’s shows features is the creation of “The Ultimate Sport Quad” by the editors of ATV Sport. The custom quad will consist of a Yamaha Raptor outfitted with top-of-the-line aftermarket parts and accessories. The Ultimate Sport Quad will be featured in an upcoming issue of ATV Sport and will be on display in the ATV/Outdoor Showcase area at all 13 shows.
