First off I have to give the disclaimer that I still haven’t fixed my camera since it broke at SHOT show so these pics were taken with my mobile… sorry for the picture quality.
The Harley booth was by far the most fun of the show. They had a live DJ spinning music (following Ducati’s lead from last year’s show) and it is clear from the way the staff was dressed (and their demographic) that Harley was targeting a younger audience. I would say it worked well! Seriously I loved the vibe and just wanted to hang out at their booth lol.
My favourites were this Street Bob
And this trike
I also love the front fairing on the Road Glide Special
Again, too bad I did not have my DSLR to capture the metallic paint on these two
In terms of bikes though, I think BMW had the most impressive selection and I didn’t even get pics of all their lines (Sport, Tour, Adventure, Heritage, Urban Mobility). First up from their sport line, the stunning HP4 Race
Lots of variations of the RnineT from their heritage line
I have given props to the Hayabusa in past reviews…indeed, it has been around for quite a few years now and if it aint broke…just introduce new colour schemes lol. I gotta say, I really found the look appealing.
As I did on this absolutely menacing V-Max…wow badass.
I dare say more badass than the new Ducati X-Diaval
Of course the big news at Ducati was the Panigale V4S…big crowds around this bike..i was hoping to see the 1299 Panigale R FE but no such luck
Multistrada Enduro (note the same wheels as the BMW adventure)
All in all I would say the Ducati booth was more low key than past shows.
Then again, the show in general was smaller than previous years. In any case…
The retro Scout FTR 750..what a beauty!
Indian Springfield Dark Horse
The all new Triumph Speed Triple
From their Modern Classics line, the Street Scrambler
Moto Guzzi MGX Flying Fortress (black) and Audace (orange)
I reported on these carbon fiber Kawasakis last year
Good idea for my living room lol
Alright on to the autoshow next week…hopefully my camera will be fixed by then.
