WOODCLIFF LAKE, NJ – September 19, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – BMW Motorrad USA is going full throttle at the upcoming American International Motorcycle Expo presented by Nationwide at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, September 21-24. Reinforcing its commitment to the creative ingenuity of individual builders and the renaissance of motorcycle customization, BMW Motorrad USA is the presenting sponsor of the Custom Culture Pavilion, a popular high-traffic exhibit area for aftermarket manufacturers of custom products, performance engine components and lifestyle apparel.
In the Pavilion, BMW Motorrad USA will showcase its customizable Heritage family of motorcycles: the R nine T, R nine T Scrambler, the R nine T Pure, the R nine T Racer, and the R nine T Urban G/S. The Pavilion will also feature the Championship of the Americas custom bike build-off, an AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building qualifying event, and the interactive Artisan’s Row, showcasing the talents of industry craftsmen and craftswomen in a variety of fields. For 2017, antique motorcycle racer Brittney Olsen has been named the Custom Culture powered by BMW Motorcycles ambassador. Brittney, who recently took top honors at the inaugural Sons of Speed race in Daytona Beach, Florida, will be on hand to share her passion for educating current and future motorcyclists about early American motorcycle racing.
Indoors, BMW Motorrad USA will offer visitors an opportunity to experience style in the fast lane on a customizable R nineT Racer via EyeRide Virtual Reality. Showgoers will also see artistry in action as popular artist Makoto Endo creates a painting of a BMW motorcycle using chopsticks over the course of the event.
