Seven unique minibike conversions from seven European countries, each the result of a creative collaboration between artists and custom bike professionals, will be on display at the event.  The conversions range from discreetly refined to completely off-the-wall, which is sure to delight visitors.

Fans can vote for the most popular Honda custom minibike on the website, which caters to motorcycle enthusiasts worldwide in six languages.


Honda’s Minibike-Flotte

Honda has the most comprehensive mini-bike selection on the market with the 125cc Dax, the Monkey 125 and the MSX125 Grom.  The retro-styled Dax and funky Monkey evoke fond memories of the 1970s, while the Grom presents itself as a modern pocket-sized mini-bike.  The combination of manageable stature, fuel economy and lots of fun to ride make these bikes the perfect entry for novice riders and the young at heart.
