More information about the Conference

Each year in November, motorcycle developers from all over the globe travel to Milan to take part in EICMA, the world’s largest motorcycle exhibition. Ricardo contributes its expertise and its passion for motorcycling throughout that industry, year on year, and was driven to create a focused forum where experts and others passionate about integrated motorcycle development could come together to share knowledge and new ideas. The Motorcycle Conference was born from the idea of Ricardo’s biking enthusiasts to provide a means to bring together global engineering capabilities.

The inaugural conference took place in 2014, with a clear remit to connect like-minded individuals from all over the world in an open forum not biased by sales agendas. During the one-day conference, we discuss the challenges, directions and trends of future two wheelers, and learn more about local legislative restrictions. The meeting gives participants the opportunity to develop their personal and professional networks in small and more intimate surroundings, prior to EICMA.

Due to the full programme, ‘Expert Dialogues’ will run in parallel to the main conference, bringing together automotive engineering experts and motorcycle and urban mobility developers.
