Montreal Motorcycle Show Runs This Weekend


It’s time for the Montreal Motorcycle Show, long known as the hottest event on the MMIC’s winter moto-show circuit! The fun kicks off tomorrow (Friday, February 23), and we expect it’s going to be a good time as always.

Taking a quick peek at the exhibitor list that was announced today (uploaded by the MMIC to Facebook here), it looks like Montreal’s show will have more going on than last weekend’s Toronto show did. The mainstream moto manufacturers exhibiting include Aprilia, Can-AM BRP, Honda, Harley-Davidson, KTM, Moto Guzzi, Piaggio, Triumph, Suzuki, and Yamaha. Kove is there, too, showing its new 450 Rally models; even Sherco is there. However, take note: Kawasaki, Indian and BMW were not at the Toronto show, and it appears they won’t be at the Montreal show either. Take from that what you will!

Along with new bikes, there will be plenty of new gear and accessories on display, and plenty of clubs will be exhibiting at the show. The so-called “hipster” section of the past few years’ shows does not appear to be returning, or at least, it wasn’t clearly mentioned—and it wasn’t at the Toronto show last weekend either. That’s too bad, because the independent businesses featured there were some of the most interesting displays.

One again the show runs Friday-Saturday at Palais des congrès de Montréal. The doors are open noon-10 PM Friday, 10 AM-8 PM Saturday and 10 AM-5 PM Sunday. Ticket prices start at $20 for an adult, $15 for a senior (65+) or student; juniors (age 6-14) get in for $12. Kids under 5 get in for free. A pass for two adults and two juniors is $48. All tickets bought online come with a $1.70 service charge for each individual. For more details, see here.


  1. Looks like there is more space to move around at that venue. The one here in Edmonton was so cramped for space you could hardly get far enough away from the motorcycles to even get a photo., No Kawasaki display here either.
