Besides motorcycle products, the show has also exhibited a variety of peripheral products for motorcycle riding, such as helmets, mobile phone brackets, and other cycling equipment and outfits, offering comprehensive protection and terrain types at different prices to satisfy the needs of consumers.

JD’s data shows that the post-90s generation is the rising group of buyers for motorcycle products. These young people would like to buy more personalized and fashionable cycling gear on JD, making online shopping and show-watching key ways for motorcycle brands to meet their customers.
