Swiss-Custom bike show
Zurich, 18 to 21 February 2016
Staged at the annual Swiss-Moto motorcycle industry expo in Zurich in February, a pre-selected field of fifty of the best custom projects from Switzerland and surrounding countries will compete for prizes that include trips for two lucky winners and their bikes to take part at the Customshow Emirates at Abu Dhabi, UAE - the largest custom car and bike show in the Middle East (March 31st - April 2nd 2016).
Regularly attracting over 40,000 visitors every year, and fully supported by the OEMs who sell in Switzerland, Swiss-Custom is a popular feature at Swiss-Moto, the primary motorcycle show for a market that has one of the highest ownership of motorcycles per head of the population.
Switzerland was worth nearly 45,000 new PTW (Powered Two-Wheeler) registrations in 2014, and in motorcycle sales terms Harley-Davidson were top-dog, selling nearly 3,500 machines for a market share of some 15 percent - ahead of Yamaha and BMW in second and third - with the Breakout their top seller.
Under the stewardship of Frank Sander of Thunder Media, Germany, fame, the concept of Swiss-Custom has been refined in recent years. Improvements to the judging arrangements and class structure have laid a solid foundation, and with pre-selection driving up the standards, simply "making-the-cut" for Swiss-Custom has become a builder credential in its own right.
