From November 16 to 24, at the Birmingham NEC, cycling enthusiasts from all over the country will have the opportunity to see the latest models from the world’s leading manufacturers, enjoy non-stop live entertainment and take advantage of the free riding opportunities.
Check out the top ten machines featured at Motorcycle Live, as selected by Motorcycle News …
Is it a 900 or a 1000? The two XRs are hard to separate at a glance, but this new model in the BMW lineup could prove to be the model that most buyers should be focused on. While the new Parallel Twin 900 can’t keep up with the ballistic speed of the Inline Four, it comes with everything you’d expect from a range topper, but in a more flexible and easy-to-use form. Daily ride, tourer and back lane assassin in one bike.
Ducati Streetfighter V4
The super-naked market is just exploding with psychotic New Metal and the new Streetfighter V4 promises to be one of the absolute highlights of this sublime abundance. 208 horsepower from the Panigale V4-derived engine, minimalist design that includes a fat set of quad wings that is supposed to deliver 28kg of downforce with full chat and Italian chic – it’s a bare nut we all want to spend time with in 2020.
Harley-Davidson Pan America
For a manufacturer that is often considered to be one of the most traditional, Harley does a fantastic job and shocks us with new metal. Hot on the heels of LiveWire is this bold new Pan America set to arrive in late 2020. This is a big departure from HD and also introduces the all-new Revolution Max engine, which in 1250cc form translates to 145 horsepower and 90 ftlb of torque from the 60-degree V-twin on tap.
Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade
It’s hard to believe that it has been 28 years since the original groundbreaking Fire Blade knocked out all of us. The competition is dramatically tougher now, but if you’re at the top of HRC’s MotoGP wave, the blade could be back at the top of the superbike pecking order. New design, 215 hp of the new engine, new electronics and a large set of aero wings make it the most exciting new superbike of 2020.
Kawasaki Z H2
Supercharged Super-Naked anyone? Please form an orderly queue. Kawasaki’s Ninja H2 SX tweeted and crept into our affections with an addictive hedonistic rush, and now he’s brought up a naked sibling to add even more aggression to the package. Some of the H2 SX’s nifty refinements and that beautiful one-sided swingarm may have been left behind, but this is going to be a hell of a ride.
KTM 890 Duke R.
When the 790 Duke arrived, one question was on everyone’s lips – where is the R? Well here it is and it’s even better than hoped. Not only does it get the typical orange excess you’d expect from the naughty version of the Austrian brand, but it even got a new 890 engine with more power, power and torque – supported by a more aggressive driving position, better suspension and more powerful brakes .
MV Agusta Superveloce 800
When the prototype was revealed last year, there was a collective gasp, followed by the sad claim that MV likely would never build it. But they have – and it’s no less great in production. The retro feeling gives it a timeless quality, which is underpinned by the screaming 145 hp inline triple traction control, the 8-stage traction control, the driving modes, the bidirectional quickshifter and the high-quality bicycle parts. Nice.
Suzuki V-Strom 1050 XT
It’s easy to disapprove of what looks like a visual update – but don’t be fooled. Suzuki redesigned it, strongly reminiscent of the legendary DR BIG from the 1980s, but the changes go significantly deeper. A useful increase in performance to 106 hp coupled with a range of new electronics that bring it up to date at a very affordable price makes this one of the most affordable adventure bikes on the market.
Triumph Thruxton RS
Very few large factories can deliver authentic retros with the level of style, fit, and finish that Triumph delivers. The T120 Thruxton was a revelation at launch, and this year the R was replaced by the RS – a fitter, more powerful (around 8 hp), lighter (around 6 kg), and higher spec version. It’s the kind of bike that will make you smile as well, whether you’re carving a sunny Sunday B-street or sitting in the garage looking at them.
Yamaha Tracer 700
Yamaha’s 700cc CP2 family continues to be one of the most attractive multi-platform offerings ever built, and the overhauls of the popular Tracer 700 could rightly cause the sales charts to rise again in 2020. Already a fantastic mix of everyday usability and weekend entertainment, the facelift gives it a much stronger stance and with a new dashboard, adjustable screen and wider bar it should drive even better
