Honda arrives in style at Wheels and Waves 2024

This year marks five years of, with a record-breaking field of sixteen bikes from nine different European countries battling it out for the top prize online at and in the metal at the Wheels and Waves festival in Biarritz.

In 2020, the ‘Africa Four CRF1000R’ version of the CB1000R from Swiss Honda dealer Brivemo Motos was crowned the inaugural victor. In 2021 Mototrafa’s CB650R Fenix won for Portugal. In 2022 it was custom CMX500 Rebels, with Maanboard from Sardinia-based customisers Motocicli Audaci taking the honours. For 2023 minibikes took centre stage and the winner, the post-apocalyptic Dax Furisoa – a collaboration between young artist Tamara Alves (@tamara_aalves) and Art of Wheels Garage (@artonwheelsgarage) – gave the win back to Portugal.

The customisation contest has become an annual event – working in reality and online – that’s growing in popularity as imaginations run riot, and received over 21,000 voting visitors throughout summer 2023 for its range of Honda minibikes, an increase of 41% on the previous year. 2024 looks to build on the success and this time it’s the turn of the CL500, a bike loaded with scrambler style and a zesty, A2 compliant twin-cylinder engine. Versatile and huge fun to ride, the CL500 is a great entry point for both motorcycling itself and the world of customisation and all the freedom, self-expression and individuality it allows – for that reason, its guiding design principle is simply ‘Express yourself’.

The bikes can be seen in person at the annual Wheels and Waves festival in Biarritz from Wednesday 12 to Sunday 16 June 2024, and on-line throughout the summer at, where visitors can vote for their favourite customisation and download wallpapers for their phone or desktop. will again be available in English, French, German, Italian and Portuguese, with the winners being announced at the end of the summer.
