The Toronto Motorcycle Show Starts Tomorrow


The Motorcycle & Moped Industry Council takes its mid-winter moto show to Toronto this weekend, starting tomorrow (Friday, February 16) at the Enercare Centre, as usual.

Remember, this is the second show of the winter, the one that’s put on by the industry itself—and that means it has more OEM representation and factory bike displays. You’re more likely to see new machines here than you are at the Supershow.


This event has undergone some significant changes, especially since the pre-COVID days but even in the year since the last TO show. The show’s website is pretty low on details and that means that we’re not 100 percent sure who’s exhibiting at this year’s event. What we can tell you is that the western shows had the Yamaha learn-to-ride crew back, offering free minibike training to kids. They also had ebike demos and it looked like the usual distributor/dealer/club/racing/vintage mix.

According to Facebook, KTM (and their close friends GasGas, Husqvarna and MV Agusta) is going to be there this weekend, along with Harley-Davidson, Honda, Can-Am, Moto Guzzi, Yamaha, Triumph, Suzuki, Vespa, Zero, Royal Enfield and Piaggio. Kawasaki will not be there, nor will Indian or BMW, as far as we understand. However, sometimes dealers will bring their bikes to their displays, even if the OEM doesn’t.

Not happy about the no-shows? Tell your local dealership, and make sure they let head office know.

The show doors open at noon Friday; the show runs ’til 9 PM, then re-opens 10 AM-8 PM Saturday and 10 AM-5 PM Sunday. Tickets are $22 for adults, $17 for seniors and students, $14 for juniors (aged 6-14). Kids under 5 get in for free, and a family of four (two adults, two juniors) pays $50. You can pre-purchase tickets here.
