Súbete a Mi Moto"", consists of 15 episodes, of 60 minutes each, presenting the story of the Puerto Rican band and the 'Menudomanía', as well as the internal incidents between manager Edgardo Díaz and the members of the band. The musical and biographical production, which includes the soundtrack of more than 30 hits of the group, was recorded in Mexico and Puerto Rico in public places and built sets that allude to the 70s and 80s, the golden age of the group.

Many scenes were filmed in public places with live audiences.
