SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Indianapolis has long been the epicenter of American powersports - anyone with speed and horsepower on the brain has Indy on their radar, whether it's the "Brickyard," MotoGP or the world-renowned Indy 500. The Progressive® International Motorcycle Shows is now proud to be another landmark on the radar of Midwest motorsports enthusiasts, with the upcoming Indianapolis Motorcycle Show!
February 15-17, hundreds of brand new 2013 motorcycles will roll into the Indiana Convention Center, representing the latest and most advanced machinery on two-wheels from every major manufacturer in the world. Fans and enthusiasts alike are welcome to get up close and personal with this definitive collection of 2013 motorcycles (and even some 2014s), as well as experience everything else the Indianapolis Motorcycle Show has to offer.
In an exclusive to the Indianapolis market, the J&P Cycles Ultimate Custom Bike Show will culminate with the U.S. Championship being held throughout the weekend at the Indiana Convention Center. The premier-class "Ultimate Builder" winners from each stop of the nationwide Progressive® International Motorcycle Shows tour will compete for national honors in Indy, where only one bike and builder will be named America's finest. Get an all-access look at this season's beautiful contestants in Indy, and cast your vote for the best builder in the U.S.
Celebrity appearances, the world-class MotoGP Experience and the antics of the XDL Street Jam crew are only a taste of the action that the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows bring. The Indianapolis Motorcycle Show will also serve as a core shopping outlet for motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere, with exclusive one-time deals on everything from boots to helmets you won't find anywhere else.
