Bangladesh Automobiles Assembles and Manufacturers Association will help to organize Dhaka BIKE FAIR 2013 starting September 19th up to 21st of Sept. in Bangabandhu International Conference Centre. Which is earlier announced last month to be held on August 19th up to 31st of August 2013. It is expected that 17 motorcycles manufacturer and Importer will participate in this fair. The opening ceremony will be on 28th of August, the fair will go on from 10 AM to 7 PM. The entry fee for this event is 20 BDT per person.
“We will introduce some new motorbikes at the fair, especially for the office-goers and students,” said Sarwar NA Khan, executive secretary of Bangladesh Automobiles Assemblers and Manufacturers Association.
There is no alternative to motorbikes in Dhaka city as the vehicles are still considered as timesaver and a speedy mode of transport, the use of motorbikes will help ease the near-constant traffic gridlock on the city roads, while cost efficiency of the vehicles will attract more users. The fair will also create awareness among people on how to avoid unexpected accidents, according to press release.
The good news for the reader of BIKEBD is we will bring exclusive insight of these three days. We will fill you people with news, updates about the products.
During this these 3 days event other then BIKE SHOW there will be seminar on road safety, traffic rules, stunt show and showcase of spare parts of different models of bikes. I think it is a good initiative, something which should be organized every year not only in Dhaka but in other major cities. The market of bikes has increased a lot in the last 5 years. I think there were more bikes sold in BD in the last 5 years then there had been in the 10 years before that. The people of Bangladesh use bikes as a regular mode of transport which is cheap and most important of all it saves a lot of time.
Though the government has approved motorcycle of 155cc in the road but miscreants showing thumbs to the law enforcing agency are using high capacity motorcycle illegally. Sometimes high-speed in operating motorcycle cause road accidents claiming lives of several riders round the year, he said, adding that the fair in this connection and a seminar on road safety would be of great help to young bike riders of Bangladesh.
