In the main, us Bikers tend to love all things crazy, fast, funny and daft - generally anything to put a grin on our faces. In the world of advertising, motorcycle brands tend to push boundaries and the motorcycle adverts produced are mostly edgy and funny - and sometimes emotionally charged.
Sadly, we don't really see many motorcycle adverts on TV anymore - probably down to the digital world providing a more targeted reach for a much lower cost. On the flip side, the digital world allows us to watch these motorcycle commercials from literally anywhere! We've put together a selection of motorcycle ads from over the years - hope you enjoy them.
If you're inspired by these ads and want to see the bikes they're advertising, we've included links to the motorcycles for sale and also the specific bikes that are featured in the commercials.
Our favourite motorcycle ad of all time. It's narrated in the style of the The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and it's simply brilliant. Well done Triumph - absolute quality.
Certainly a cheeky one from Aprilia, makes you laugh but are there really any bikers out who'd think the same in this situation? LOL
Here's an old classic 'table cloth trick' with a twist from BMW Motorrad - not a waiter, but an S1000RR
Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle and Enduro launch campaign ad
When showing off backfires...
Great advert - there'll be no need to clean the Pigeon s**t of this Harley!
This is a painstakingly close runner up to our favourite motorcycle ad of all time. Love everything about it.
A clear message to all Porsche drivers out there heh heh
Funny commercial for the new Kawasaki Ninja (back in the day!)
Another funny classic from Kawasaki
Who else can remember being fascinated with motorbikes as a child? Love how this comes full circle - great ad Suzuki!
