Discover every single aspect and facets that make a motorcycle a special and unique item

Means of transportation? A solution against traffic jams? An object of desire? Sport? Yes: a motorcycle is all that and much more. Very few day-to-day use objects in our lives combine functionality and pleasure in such an accurate way. Who does not specially remember the first motorcycle in their lives, or the one of the neighbour, relative, friend or even an acquaintance?

In this new permanent exhibition at the Barcelona Motorcycle Museum we encourage you to discover every single aspect and facets that make a motorcycle a special and unique item. From its beginning as a vehicle for elitist users until nowadays as a powerful tool to move around in the big cities, it has became the best option for personal mobility, not forgetting its recreational and sports aspects together with the importance of its industry, crucial in certain countries.

An interesting tour along 5 different areas (Society, Competition, Industry, the Catalan Motorbike and the Motorcycle linked to the film industry), grouping 40 motorcycles of both national and international brands, including several prototypes and unique models worldwide.
