The 9th edition of the Moscow International Exhibition Moto Park has just closed its doors registering yet another record of attendance.
The event took place last weekend at the Crocus-Expo IEC and is regarded as one of the most important Russian fairs in the motorcycle business.
In comparison to the previous edition, the latest Moto Park had a show floor that was twice as big in size and – apart from the official distributors -it’s been a nice opportunity to find out about the latest trends in the Russian custom scene.
In fact, the event hosted the 6th edition of the Custom & Tuning Show, which they organize alongside specialized mag Ruriders.
This ‘event within the event’ also included the Russian Custom Championship, which saw the participation of over 50 customizers from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia and even some more obscure territories such as the Komi Republic, Bashkortostan, and the Perm area.
Russian customizers aside, there was a delegation of the AMD (American Motorcycle Dealer), organizers of the prestigious World Championship of Custom Bike Building, which provided the event with a sort of international vibe.
Talking about motorbikes, the models on display in Moscow were indeed quite flashy, which kind of shows how keen are the Russian to emerge in the international scene: chiseled engine covers, German-like tails and all sorts of exaggerations.
Just take a look at the pictures featured in our photo gallery and you will see it for yourselves.
By the way, there was a bunch of nice hostesses too, but nice ladies are never too flashy, are they?
