Tokyo Motorcycle Show

 

The Tokyo Motorcycle Show 2018 parked up the two-wheelers today for a weekend extravaganza of all things motorcycle at convention and exhibition hall Tokyo Big Site. This year’s edition of the show is the 45th outing for what is the largest motorcycle show in Japan. Organizers, the Tokyo Motorcycle Show Association, have brought together around 135 companies and organizations from the motorcycle industry, both domestic and overseas. Over 800 booths and displays at the show are showcasing a variety of two-wheeled engineering along with the myriad of tech, parts, and accoutrements that comes with this. In short -- if you’re into motorcycles and are within sniffing distance of the Japan capital, the Tokyo Motorcycle Show is surely an essential experience. But there’s much to enjoy for everyone at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show. Visitors are afforded the chance to get up-close-and-personal with the machines having the freedom to sit
astride them can get a sense of what it would be like to ride one. Aside from the motorcycles, there’s plenty of kit on display too. Fans of Star Wars and characters from Marvel comics should head over to the display by helmet maker HJC where custom headgear comes with paintwork from a galaxy far far away, and that depicting super heros Spider-Man and Iron Man. The location being as it is though, Japanese manufacturers are out in force at the event. Japan motorcycle powerhouse Kawasaki has a large booth at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show with a number of the manufacturer’s “Ninja” models on display including 2018s NINJA H2™ SX SE, “born from a pure pursuit of supercharged hypersport performance,” according to the manufacturer’s description. The NINJA H2™ SX SE houses a balanced supercharged 998cc inline 4-cylinder engine. On a personal level, this visitor was happy to have a close look at the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R SE, a machine that Kawasaki revealed at EICMA in 2017. The American muscle is here, too. Indian Motorcycles flex their considerable weight at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show with the manufacturers Chief model on display, sitting on it’s Thunder Stroke 111 engine. Close by is the “Scout,” boasting a 100 hp V-Twin engine.
