The virtual worlds are becoming an increasingly important part of the motorcycle riding experience, and the latest trend is represented by apps that help customers decide what bike they should buy. Even more, some of these apps, like My Garage, offer the buyers a peek inside the custom niche, as they can now visualize how their dream bike looks like.

My Garage lets customers choose from the entire Yamaha genuine parts shop. This way, customers can get a glimpse of how their machine would look with various add-ons, from exhausts silencers to other bolt-on parts, including travel accessories and more.

The My Garage Supersport and My Garage MT virtual spaces add to the initial Sport Heritage one, offering the same level of detail for the 3D visual experience.Saving accessorized bikes, sharing photos of them and even ordering them online
People who use My Garage can also store their favorite motorcycles in their own virtual garage so they can revisit and modify them if needed. As 3D imaging is one of the strongest parts of the app, it's only natural that the future customers can take as many pics of the bike as they need.

Showing off or simply showing their choices to other people was never easier, as the app lets users distribute these photos on social networks.

And when you're ready to pull the trigger on a new bike, all you have to do is choose to send the bike you customized to your nearest Yamaha dealer. They will get in touch with you and make sure you'll be riding a bike that's exactly like the one you built virtually.

Both iOS and Android devices can run the app, and below you have the links to it:
