Finally the first Indo-Bangla Automotive Show 2017 pulls down the curtain after 3 days of awesome event especially from Hall 2 which was fully covered by motorcycles. BikeBD was the online partner of the show & we are really proud for all the response we received from the bikers and from all the 6 motorcycle companies participating in the show.
We are honored by the hospitality from the event organizer & from the motorcycles companies throughout the 3 days the event showed lots of energy & character. Many of us asked what was BikeBD doing by having a stall in the event; well we did the following things>
- Meeting with many bikers with whom we were only connected in the virtual life.
- We gave Free BikeBD.com stickers and distributed that among 5000 bikers.
- We showed our brand to the dignitaries from Japan & India so that they can feel & see what BikeBD did for their respective brand through our website.
- We collected some data of bikers so in the near future we can get more connected with them and send them messages through mail or phone about news of more bike event.
- Most important of all we asked the bikers to wear helmet while riding motorcycle on the road & also follow traffic rules for the safety.
Many companies tried many different things during the show. As we explained in our previous articles that Runner & Bajaj launched new motorcycles during the show, sadly TVS & Hero didn’t revealed anything new but Hero did organize a Free Style dancing event in their pavilion.
Yamaha arranged TEST RIDE event for the bikers to get a taste of their motorcycles while Honda displayed three new bikes in their pavilion which they might launch in Bangladesh soon & the most important of them all HONDA RC213V, the 2013 World Championship Winning motorcycles by Marc Marquez which I believe is on most bikers Facebook profile who came in the show.
Throughout the three days event many companies gave t shirt, key ring & other gift hampers to the bikers but in the end BHL gave a Honda Wave Alpha to one of the lucky winner from the quiz competition, also 5 others got the chance to sit on RC213V MotoGP Bike.
But for us the fireworks came in the end when Mr. Yuichiro Ishii & Mr. Shoichi Satoh came to our stall and told us that on behalf of BikeBD, Suvro & Wasif will get the chance to sit on the MotoGP bike and take some pictures and we were stunned by that news & were filled with joy.
We took some pictures and wave goodbye to all of them for the show and we BikeBD will want to take this opportunity to thank the following:
- SIAM – For giving us the chance to participate in Indo-Bangla Automotive Show 2017 & for their warm hospitality.
- ALL THE BIKERS WHO CAME IN OUR STALL AND COLLECTED BIKEBD STICKERS.
- Officials from Bajaj, Hero & Yamaha for constantly visiting our stalls and we had a wonderful time talking with them.

- Mr. Ishii, Mr Satoh, Mr. Rakhibul , Mr. Mostafizur & whole BHL Team for the last minute surprise for BikeBD.
