“Exploring The Unknown”

Extensive list of Motorcycle Manufactures from around the world.

List of companies currently producing and selling motorcycles available to the public, including both street and race/off-road motorcycles. Does not include badge engineered bikes sold under a different name than their producer, nor motorcycle customizes. Some of the motorcycles or the manufacturers stopped manufacturing their respective products. When I found this list I was zapped and was feeling guilty about having less knowledge about the motorcycles. Having knowledge about vehicles is a different thing but at least knowing about the products is must. In fact I found some of the products which are made in India were also unknown to me.
