Ducati Streetfighter V4

The premium annual motorcycle event held in Milan, the Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo e Accessori (EICMA), drew a lot of eyeballs with some amazing bikes on display.

Here is our list of the showstoppers from this adrenaline-induced event!

Ducati Streetfighter V4
Voted as the most beautiful bike at the show, the Ducati Streetfighter V4 is a new super-naked bike on offer from the premium Italian motorcycle manufacturer.

The bike gets high and wide handlebars, a Desmosedici Stradale 1,103cc motor that delivers 208 hp and a rather aggressive styling!

The Streetfighter V4 also boasts of a tech-savvy package that Ducati claims is the ultimate formula in delivering a bike that is aggressive to ride, yet easy to manage.


Harley-Davidson Pan America


Harley-Davidson Pan America
Harley-Davidson has built a reputation for itself as a maker of cruisers and bobbers, however, the company is now venturing into new territory with the all-new Pan America — their first-ever adventure motorcycle.

The bike boasts of a stunning, yet futuristic design with a squared-off look upfront and it also gets Harley-Davidson’s new liquid-cooled V-twin motor.

It is hard to say just how well this bike performs, but from the looks of it, Harley-Davidson has definitely piqued the interest of adventure motorcyclists across the globe with this new offering.


Honda CBR1000RR-R


Honda CBR1000RR-R
The Fireblade name has reached iconic levels in the 28 years since the first Honda Fireblade made its debut and taking that to a whole new level are these new bikes.

Inspired by the RC213V MotoGP machine and the street legal RC213V-S, the 2020 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade looks epic.

It boasts of a cutting edge aerodynamic package and some serious tech. Powering the bike is the most powerful inline four-cylinder engine that Honda has ever made!

In fact, it shares the same bore and stroke as the engine that does duty on the RC213V-S and delivers a maximum power of 217PS at 14500rpm and peak torque of 113Nm at 12500rpm.

Also offered in an SP variant that gets second-generation semi-active Öhlins Electronic Control featuring 43mm NPX forks and Öhlins TTX36 Smart-EC rear shock, new Brembo Stylema four-piston radial-mounted front calipers and the same rear Brembo monoblock caliper as used on the RC213V-S, it is a bike meant for the track.


KTM 390 Adventure

The 390 Adventure is a bike that Indian adventure enthusiasts have been really looking forward to. After all, it boasts of KTM’s pedigree and falls in the affordable adventure bike category.

Aimed at a larger population, this new adventure tourer will get the same engine as the 390 Duke.

However, it has been set up with longer suspension travel and a more upright seating position to allow for long-haul riding.

The KTM 390 Adventure should make its debut in India next year.
