EICMA Open link in a new window 2011, world's biggest motorcycle exhibition, located in Milan, Italy, is over, and it was a bumper year, with many new motorcycles, new manufacturers and a lot of new and interesting things to see.

It was also a record number of attendance, over 500,000 visitors came to look at the pretty models (and motorcycles).

Visitors came from all over the world; 75% from Europe, 10% from America, 14% from Asia, Africa had 0.50%, and 0.50% from Oceania.

Some 6,000 journalists attended, from all over the world. 1462 brands were shown, from 43 countries on 58,000 square meters of exposition space.. With so many journalists attending, you'd expect Eicma to have some decent working space for them, but you end up working on the floor in the corridors, since there's enough space for about 100. I just wish Eicma would put more adequate space there.

Here are some notable motorcycles and scooters that I noticed in the show (note: these are just my impression, obviously there were a lot more). You can see all the Eimca articles, by pressing here Open link in a new window.
