EICMA Show in Milan
« on: November 17, 2015, 07:30:20 am »
As many might now, the EICMA Motocycle Show is taking place in Milan and all sorts of new things are being unveiled. Shall we chat about some of them? First off, Ducati has released two new Scramblers - the Flat Track Pro based on the bike Troy Bayliss has been racing in AMA and the more affordable Sixty2 with a 400cc engine.

Milan Show: there's already a thread on this, Ducati have unveiled the Multistrada Enduro with 19" front wheel, 200mm suspension and 30L tank. What we think?

This is nice, I like. Wonder what the price will be! I must own at least one Ducati in my life and I am running out of time!

If it had a 21" front wheel it would be even better.

Why don't manufacturers release bikes with 21" wheels anymore?  Are they to unstable at high speeds?

Looks very nice, but I will have this constant, niggling thought that I am piggy-backing on Optimus Prime.

Enot as flash as some of the other bikes,but if I needed to commute daily,this new SV650 could be it. The old ones were pretty bullet proof. Lekker little VTwin. Could be an awesome engine if Suzuki ever wanted to make a DS bike

Milan: Ducati Panigale 959 - 157hp and a Euro4 pipe. Under pipe optional. What do we think? #Ducati #Panigale #EICMA

I think practically every one of those bikes is ugly.

The ducati scramblers are 'nice' but they still miss the mark in terms of styling.
