On track

Motoism starts at ESSENZA 2017.

Usually in 1/8 mile sprints, DIY mechanics, hobby racers and small racing teams compete against each other. Head to head, the loser is kicked out. A familiar concept. The new sprint series Essenza goes one step further. Essenza calls the motorcycle manufacturers and importers into the arena. BMW vs. Indian. Battling with Kawasaki and Suzuki. Essenza is looking for a direct comparison of the motorcycle manufacturer and the talented independent teams – a couple of motorsports enthusiasts and custom motorcycle builders who join this professional league. In total: 16 motorcycles.

With a maximum of two cylinders and no more than 1200 cc displacement. The 1/8 mile sprints will take place twice this year:
10 – 11 June at the Caferacer Festival Montlhery in France and on 1 – 3 September at Glemseck 101 in Leonberg.


Select the most beautiful bike. The hottest design. The most convincing overall package.
At Essenza – The Essence of Motorcycles, the bike that crosses the finish line first isn’t the only winner. There’s also a prize for the one with the most attractive design. Become a part of Essenza and select your personal design highlight.
