As global COVID 19 restrictions are lifted, more and more events are returning to the global motorcycle calendar in 2022. Now it’s the turn of the Cologne Motor Show, or Intermot, as it’s known. more commonly called. The organizers proudly announced that Intermot 2022 will be open to the public from October 6 to 9, 2022. In addition, two press days will take place on October 4 and 5.
It’s been a few years since the last Intermot, during which so much has changed for just about everyone. Yet the one important thing that hasn’t changed is a shared passion for life on two wheels, and that’s what Intermot wants to tap into when staging its 2022 show.
What can visitors expect? Many major exhibitors will be there, including BMW, interestingly, which previously opted out of appearing at EICMA 2021. Other attendees who have already announced plans to appear include Benelli, Brixton, FB Mondial, Honda, Horex, Kawasaki, Kymco, Lambretta, Malaguti, NIU, Triumph and Voge.
As e-mobility and last-mile transport grow stronger – not to mention e-bikes and other powered two-wheelers that differ from the traditional motorcycle model – this will, of course, have a footprint at Intermot 2022. Currently, organizers are planning to divide the exhibitors into six distinct worlds-concepts: World of eNNOVATION, World of 125, World of Shop @INTERMOT, World of Routes, World of Touring, World of Heritage and Custom.
World of eNNOVATION will be dedicated to e-mobility. World of 125 will be dedicated to beginners and aspiring pilots, as you may have already guessed. World of Shop @INTERMOT will do what its name suggests and allow visitors to purchase items directly on the spot. World of Parcours is the next step after World of 125, where a small circuit will facilitate the first bike rides. Finally, World of Touring and World of Heritage and Custom will both cater to groups named in their titles.
As of April 21, 2022, tickets are not yet available for purchase for Intermot 2022. However, they are expected to be available for purchase online later this summer. As with other events held during these times, be sure to pay attention to changes in local health guidelines, as well as the current outbreak situation to protect yourself and your loved ones.
