Motorcycles of SEMA 2016


Motorcycles are not a big part of The SEMA Show although there are a number of bikes on display strategically in booths. However, the market for motorcycle parts and accessories is valued at $6Bn annually1 and there is just as much passion among motorcycle customizers as there is in hot rod builders, classic car restoration experts, and custom vehicle fabricators. For those attending SEMA who are also interested in motorcycle customization, the really unique and bizarre bikes being displayed illustrate cross-over applications, or the manufacturer is drawing attention to their motorcycle line as well.


The American International Motorcycle Expo, or AIMExpo is a better representation of the motorcycle industry due to its focus. But the SEMA Show, being the #2 largest trade show in the United States, attracts all the major paint and bodywork vendors, tool manufacturers, shop management software vendors, rod end and bolt companies, and tire manufacturers from all over the world. Anyone in the restoration or customization business needs to attend SEMA to keep up with industry trends that apply to all street and off highway vehicles.

This collection of photos represent some of the motorcycles on display this week at SEMA 2016.
