Columbus Fine Motorbikes & Services

VIP Motorcycling

Based in Cannes (France), Columbus has created a new way for its customers to ride the latest motorbike specialities without the inconveniences or costs of ownership. The concept is straightforward. Members pay an annual fee and in return get a credit to spend on Columbus’ fine motorbikes and exclusive services. Nothing more and nothing less.

But, it’s not only about the financial benefit – no depreciation, no insurance, no servicing, maintenance, garage or storage costs. With over 300 days of annual sunshine and pleasant temperatures, the South of France belongs to the best driving spots in the world.

The choice of breathtaking roads is near endless – the famous Route Napoleon, the twisting Col de Turini and scenic coastal routes between Monaco and St.-Tropez are just a few highlights. Access from all over Europe is easy – Nice airport is the second largest passenger airport in France. And for added convenience, Columbus has a chauffeur to collect you from the airport.

All motorbikes are insured fully comprehensively and serviced to the highest manufacturer standards. Columbus has the largest choice of rental Ducatis in France, including the new Multistrada 1200, Streetfighter, Supersport 848, Hypermotard 1100 and Monster 696. In addition, motorbike icons such as the BMW S1000RR, Triumph Rocket III, MV Agusta Brutale 910R and a Hollister’s custom chopper are coming soon.

All motorcycles are less than one year old and can be delivered within 100km of Cannes. On top of that, the company can arrange personal tour guides or provide GPS navigation with pre-loaded routes to your chosen bike. Helmet cameras are also available.

Becoming a member gets you access to more than just fine bikes. What’s more, Columbus organises luxury motorcycle holidays (weekend trips and week tours) throughout the year. These holidays are not only about spending time on two wheels.

There is something for everyone, with special tours for gourmet food and wine lovers, sports and culture fans and, of course, motor enthusiasts. Members therefore, benefit from special rates at selected hotels and restaurants in the region and get full access to a luxury chauffeur service.

To discover pleasures’ treasures with no half-measures, visit Columbus will be glad to provide further information.
