OneShift, in collaboration with Tri33ple, is proud to present the winners of our 2023 Motorcycle of the Year in Singapore!

OneShift is mainly about cars but we love our motorcycles as well. However, without the Tri333ple team we only have so many hands on deck to ride the full spectrum of bikes available in the Singapore market. Thankfully, the expertise of the Tri333ple team has come in handy to put together Motorcycle of the Year, honouring the best motorcycles launched within the year in Singapore.

Our selection criteria for MOTY winners include versatility, comfort, fuel range, off-road performance and technological features that support adventure touring.

Public voting, combined with input from adventure touring experts and rigorous testing, determined the winners. Of course, not without a lot of arguments over kopi, late night rounding and a few rowdy punches (just kidding).
