Why should you participate in MX Academic Cup

Engineering Challenge

While designing a motorcycle, you have to take many factors into consideration like safety, performance, sustainability, and strict regulations, while still implementing your innovative ideas like choice of the type of powertrain. Our Cup is the best opportunity to face that challenge!


During the whole time of the Competition you can meet many amazing people from participating teams and sponsoring companies. Thanks to that you can get inspired by other people's ideas and enjoy the community built around the Cup!

Sustainable Development

Connecting motocross with sustainability demands may seem to be unmatching, but motorcycles are produced in hundreds of thousands. Sustainability is a crucial factor for economy matters so including it into our Cup is beneficial for your awareness about cases where business and engineering meets!
