What New Motorcycles Are on Their Way to America?

Photo of a motorcyclistWinter is pretty much here, which means your motorcycle is probably parked in the garage—waiting for spring to unleash it. Well while it’s waiting for the weather to cooperate, there’s no reason that you can’t look around at what’s going to be on the road next season. Who knows, you might even find something you like.

New Motorcycles Are Coming to America

Intermot and EICMA have hit the motorcycling world, and with them, a whole new stable of motorcycles have been released. Each manufacturer has its little surprises, and your Fort Collins motorcycling attorneys want to talk about a few.

  • BMW– This German motorcycle factory has been around for a long time, but in the past decade, the company has really upped its game. This year BMW released some new variations on its popular R nine T model: the Racer captures that Café Racer vibe BMW has been chasing, and the Pure goes for that road warrior feeling we all enjoy. BMW is also releasing a sub-$5,000 bike in the form of the G 310 R—a 313cc single cylinder.
  • Ducati– Two words sum up what Ducati is bringing stateside—Super Laggera! It has a 1299cc engine, more carbon fiber than a fighter jet, and enough electrical aids to almost ride itself. The Panigale 1299 Super Laggera will also have an $80,000 price tag.
  • Harley-Davidson– Though no new bikes have broken cover yet, we all know about the new Milwaukee-Eight engine. This spring, we’ll start getting new bikes sporting this new engine, and there’s little containing our excitement.
  • Honda– The long-awaited successor to the CBR1000RR has finally broken cover, but some critics are beginning to wonder if it is a big enough improvement for the red wing factory. Honda has been notorious for not updating its CBR line up. Will this bike break that trend?
  • Suzuki– This manufacturer is also releasing a new superbike, the GSXR-1000R. The problem is Suzuki hasn’t told anyone the exact date this new bike will be released.
  • Yamaha– Has let its new YZF-R6 break cover, but with the 600 supersport market waning, will anyone be excited enough about this bike to buy one?
