The Long Version


Share details of your ride. What’s in your garage? Give other enthusiasts a peek – share pics and mods with the knowmoto community near and far!


Search connects everything together.  Search for users, makes, models, modifications, locations and more using the knowmoto app. Are you looking for a certain color ride, exhaust, wheel?  Use the app to find it all and even locate at shows you are attending.

Not Just Local

Can’t attend as an example the SEMA show in Las Vegas?  Just set your location in the knowmoto app to Las Vegas and get a ‘Live’ Check-in alert for any make and model you are following that Checks-in there!


Earn ‘Likes’ on posted pictures of your ride from any location or event in the app. Share these posts on other social media to gain even more exposure.


Trophies are awarded by other users who are physically present at the vehicle during a live check in at an event or any other location and the vehicle has a knowmoto beacon.  Users must be near the ride that is sporting the knowmoto beacon to award a trophy.  This keeps the knowmoto trophy system fair and accurate. 

Static Check-In – Locate and Interact

Never miss another cruise-in or show in your area! Get Check-in location alerts for your favorited rides and followed makes and models near you on a map!  These are static Check-ins for a specified time to allow you to come check them out.


Events coordinators, clubs and even manufacturers can use the LIKES and TROPHIES system to award knowmoto vehicles with prizes, goodies and sponsorship (Checkin history is searchable by location and dates).  Contact us for more details!


Get the App & join the knowmoto community and socialize your ride!
