ABOUT COLOMBO BIKE WEEK
The Colombo Bike Week was conceived with the noble intention of promoting Sri Lanka as a Premier tourist destination for Big Bikers throughout the world. Sri Lanka is just shrugging off the image of a civil war-torn nation and moving ahead to be on par with the rest of the world.
Currently only motorbikes with 400cc and below are allowed to be registered by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles. However, there are a handful of bikes with bigger capacities that were registered during a short promotion period a few years ago.
Buzzword Events the promoter of specialised bike tours from Malaysia had started bringing in BIG BIKERS from ASEAN over the last 3 years. We now want to promote a vibrant biking culture amongst Sri Lankans hungry for the thrill of big bikes and the reputation and excitement it instills.
Buzzword International (Lanka) Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Buzzword Events Malaysia, is currently the promoter of the COLOMBO BIKE WEEK 2018. We have received endorsement from the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotions Bureau for this event.
The next Ride is scheduled from 26 APRIL - 11 MAY 2018.
