One of the world’s largest and most important motorcycle trade fairs, INTERMOT in Cologne, will open its doors again in 2022 and present not only the latest models as well as a new event concept. (04. & 05.October are trade visitor days)
“This year, INTERMOT 2022 will be the first major motorcycle show where motorcycle fans can experience the new products presented digitally over the summer live and in color,” said Alexander Wolff, Director of INTERMOT. “And we have also really stepped on the gas with the new concept of the trade fair: in addition to the fascinating bikes, visitors can experience innovative, technical developments and visionary concepts for the mobility of the future. This reorientation has been very well received in the industry.”
A whole series of well-known manufacturers have already confirmed participation, including BMW, Honda, Kawasaki, Triumph, Horex, MSA with the Benelli, KYMCO, F.B. Mondial and VOGE brands, as well as Zero and the KSR company with its brand portfolio are just a few of them.
INTERMOT’s offerings range from motorcycles, scooters, internal combustion and electric power units, and trailers and sidecars to parts and accessories for motorized two-wheelers, engines and engine parts, electrical equipment, clothing and equipment for motorized two-wheelers, tools, workshop and store equipment, lubricants and care products, and motorcycle-related tourism and leisure products.
“The new concept of INTERMOT is based on three core ideas about which we will play the storytelling communicative: Innovation, Community and Lifestyle,” explains Wolff. “Innovation stands for the innovations in models and accessories, for future mobility and concept studies. Community describes the industry players and the motorcycle fans we are specifically triggering via the keywords ‘digital,’ ‘event,’ ‘young,’ ‘international,’ and ‘business.’ And lifestyle is synonymous with the fascination and lifestyle of motorcycles. To make sure the worldwide motorcycle community doesn’t miss a thing, we’ll be streaming INTERMOT premieres, presentations and innovations “live.””
