The Progressive International Motorcycle Show Brings New Motorcycles To You

If you’re looking to buy, here’s your chance for comparative shopping

Each year, the Progressive International Motorcycle Show brings together many of the latest and greatest motorcycles available to the general public. Traveling to seven convention centers around the US, the show is a great place to check out everything the motorcycle industry has to offer.

Many manufacturers display their current-year on- and off-road lineups. Picture one massive showroom floor where you can inspect each and every motorcycle, up close and personal. Trying to decide between a BMW R1200GS and a KTM 1290 Adventure? Why not check out both of them—and a Honda Africa Twin, while you're at it—all under the same roof.

At the recent Long Beach, California, show, several brand-new bikes made their North American debut, including the Ducati Scrambler 1100 and Panigale V4. Countless gear brands were also on site, including heavies like Alpinestars, Arai, Dainese, and Shoei, as well as smaller companies such as D73 and Atwyld.

Some show locations even offer test rides for certain brands, so keep that in mind if you’re already close to making a new-bike purchase. Check out this short video from the show’s first stop in Long Beach last weekend:

Even though the Long Beach show has come and gone, the good news is there are six more dates on the calendar, as the show will continue through February of 2018. Here are the remainder of the dates and locations, so you can plan ahead of time for a show that is coming to a town near you:
