Thrilling horse power on two wheels

Motorcycles on MOTORVISION TV

No matter if sport bike, naked bike or tourer, cruiser, supermoto, freestyle motocross or racing bike, the Motorvision TV journalists drive, test and film anything with two wheels and show for whom which bike is the right one. Furthermore they meet up with celebrities from the world of racing, such as Valentino Rossi. They visit KTM and get to know everything about “The Duke”, including a road test. But they not only stay within our country. The Schwarz family from southern Germany venture on an experiment: 3,500 miles across South-East Asia. Across Thailand, Cambodia and Laos on two enduros. There are wonderful routes in Sardinia. That´s why this island is also known as the “Bikers’ Paradise”. Motorvision TV gives advice where to go and shows the most beautiful routes.

“Motorcycles” leaves nothing to be desired: for many people it´s a symbol of freedom to cruise through deserted regions, to be able to stop wherever you like and to be free of any time constraints. And yet for others this is much too boring. They need action, even better if it’s bike racing on a race track or on the highway or on an enduro motorcycle far away from asphalt roads. Apart from thrilling stories, Motorvision provides topical information about the world of the two-wheelers.

“Motorcycles” – the motorcycle show on Motorvision TV with interesting news, great routes for excursions, thrilling bike events and challenges. Exciting stories for every motorcycle-fan!
