Smartphone like Apple's popular iPhone and Google's Android have not only become popular in the general population, but also with motorcycle riders. Games, navigation, social media, knowledge base are just a few of the apps you can get for your phone. But many motorcycle manufacturers have gotten themselves into the game, and are providing custom-made software for you to enjoy, or enjoy in the future, your motorcycle.

Here's list of apps I've found for the iPhone and Android coming from the motorcycle manufacturer. I'm not listing apps from 3rd party providers unless they are closely associated to the manufacturer, and no apps from the manufacturer's dealers, although I'm impressed by the Harley-Davidson dealers.... I don't think there's one dealer that doesn't have an app.

There are some apps for manufacturers that are specific for one country, and those I've not listed either.

The two most interesting apps are those of Piaggio and Zero, since they are used directly with the motorcycle/scooter.

NOTE: Click on any of the screen captures to for a bigger version of the screen snap. Click on the app icon to go directly to the iTunes information and download page, or click on the links (if available) for iTunes and/or Google Play.
