The international motorcycle show closed after 40 years

The IMS tour has been “suspended” after more than a few difficult years.

Official statement:


Dear IMS Fans,

We have news to share today with our IMS family. After 40 years of producing The International Motorcycle Shows and IMS Outdoors, we have made the difficult decision to suspend the IMS Tour in 2022.

The powersports industry is at a crossroads in where and how brands are promoting their products amid ongoing manufacturing and supply delays associated with the pandemic. These current hurdles that our brand partners face would have made it difficult for us to produce an IMS that would meet your and our expectations. Therefore, we will not be moving forward with events scheduled for 2022, including the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show.

All purchased tickets or paid Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show registrations for 2022 events will be refunded to the credit card used for purchase within 7 business days. If you have not received your refund within 7 business days, please contact [email protected]

We greatly appreciate your presence and loyalty over the years and will miss sharing your love for motorcycling with you.
