- The 2018 Progressive International New York motorcycle show pulled into the Big Apple this past weekend.
- I dropped by before the show opened to the public and took in the sights.
- Once again, heritage styling was a big story, but the growth of Royal Enfield, a motorcycle company big in India, was also notable.
The New York motorcycle show is one of my favorite events of the year.
The 2018 installment didn’t disappoint. The floor at the Javits Center on Manhattan’s West Side was crammed with all manner of two-wheeled delights (as well as some three- and four-wheeled attractions).
All the major players were represented. We had big ole hogs from Harley-Davidson, cool flat-track racers from Indian, style machines from Triumph, Ducati, and Aprilia, and some flash new bikes from Royal Enfield, the freshest brand to hit the US market.
Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, and Kawasaki also showcased their wide range of bikes, ATVs, and of course, JetSkis.
I also sampled helmets, riding gear, and even tires!
Let’s have a look.
Progressive, the big insurer, is the longtime sponsor of the New York motorcycle show, which pulls in to the Javits Center every year.
It is a sea of two-wheelers, from all the major manufacturers.
Let’s have a look around!
