Over 70 photos from the annual spring event.

Last weekend was cold and rainy in Tokyo, but in a happy coincidence, but that wasn’t a problem for us since we were headed into the Tokyo Big Sight convention center.

As it does every spring, Big Sight hosted the Tokyo Motorcycle Show. The event isn’t just a gathering of bike-related companies and industry groups, but also of their hard-working spokesmodels, who were out in force to welcome visitors, provide pamphlets, and pose for photos.

The show covers all the diverse aspects of the motorcycle industry, from off-roading to tarmac racing, casual cruisers to dedicated sports bikes. Manufacturer images also run the gamut, with some focusing on cutting-edge technology and other on their old-school appeal, and represent a number of countries from around the globe. Add in makers of helmets and specialized rider apparel, plus parts companies that supply both factories and at-home mechanics, and the result is an eclectic mix to the outfits worn by the show’s booth models to match each organization’s vibe.
