Ricardo Motorcycle Conference 4.0

On Monday, 6 November 2017, the Ricardo Motorcycle Conference will take place for the fourth time, again bringing together top global motorcycle industry experts in Milan the day before EICMA 2017 opens its doors to the industry.

The conference will pick up on a number of topics focusing on the current trends and future drivers of the motorcycle and urban mobility world. We are excited to announce that our keynote speech will be delivered by Antonio Perlot, Secretary General of the European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (ACEM).

This year, we want to build on the success of the Expert Dialogues we introduced last year for the first time. Therefore, three interactive sessions will run alongside the main conference programme.

Specialists from automotive and motorcycle engineering will share information on latest technologies and develop ideas in conjunction with delegates regarding their application in future motorcycle development. Topics will cover:

  • Electric motorcycles
  • Connected motorcycles
  • Technology roadmapping

The conference will take place at the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci , in Sala del Cenacolo, which has by now become familiar to our delegates. The Expert Dialogues will run concurrently in the Tinkering Room of the museum, close to the conference hall.

We will round off the conference with an evening event at the restaurant, Deus ex Machina . The evening will offer you the chance to expand your network of like-minded peers, make valuable global motorcycle industry contacts, and enjoy the fascinating surroundings in the heart of Milan’s thriving motorcycle industry.

I look forward to welcoming you to the conference.
