Top 5 Most Anticipated Bikes At The EICMA Motor Show



KTM 390 Adventure


The highly anticipated KTM 390 Adventure is likely to make its way to the shores of Milan. The idea of an adventure sports-inspired KTM 390 Duke is something fans have been yearning to get their hands on for many years. From the looks of it, we can assume that the 390 Adventure will sport a long-travel suspension on both ends along with the same swingarm as the KTM 390 Duke. For off-road capabilities, the 390 Adventure might utilise a 19-inch wheel at the front and a 17-inch one at the rear.

While KTM hasn't confirmed any details, we can assume that the KTM 390 Adventure will feature the same 377cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine seen on the 390 Duke. Expect the engine to be tuned to provide a better low-end torque that’s more suited to off-road tracks and city traffic. Apart from shorter gear ratios for better acceleration, we expect the 390 Adventure to produce around 40PS of power and 33Nm of torque. 



Triumph Tiger 800

Triumph is all set to introduce the all new Tiger 800 in Milan. With it, the British bike maker will aim at maintaining its foothold in the increasingly competitive adventure tourer segment. The 2017 EICMA will also witness the launch of the updated version of the Honda Africa Twin, an Enduro version of the Ducati Multistrada 950 and the BMW F850GS. so it only makes sense that Triumph updates their mid-level Tiger. 





From a brief teaser of the Tiger 800, it’s evident that the new bike retains the twin headlamps that now feature LED DRLs. It also gets a larger windscreen than before. The outgoing model’s semi-digital console will be replaced with a 5-inch TFT screen from the Street Triple RS. We also expect Triumph to equip the new Tiger with multi-level traction control, different ride modes and cornering ABS.


Ducati V4 Panigale

The Ducati V4 Panigale has all the potential to steal the show at the 2017 EICMA. Ducati's flagship will feature the new Desmosedici Stradale four-cylinder engine derived from the Desmosedici GP bike. This Euro IV-compliant, 1100cc, V4 engine will churn out a mammoth 213PS of power and 120Nm of torque from 8750rpm to 12250rpm. Unlike its predecessors, the V4 will sport a more front heavy design. With a powerful engine and aggressive aerodynamic design, we can't wait to find out how it'll perform against its competition.

As mentioned earlier, the adventure bike segment is set to become hotter with the arrival of the new Honda Africa Twin, Triumph Tiger and the Ducati Multistrada 950. Not wanting to get left behind, BMW Motorrad will unveil the BMW F850 GS in Milan next week. The new bike will replace the older BMW F800 GS. It will come with an adjustable windscreen, LED headlamp, and a full-colour TFT instrument cluster. Along with it, the 850cc parallel-twin engine is expected to produce 100PS of power, which will help the bike in taking the fight to its competition. 



Royal Enfield Interceptor 750


Royal Enfield is all set to launch its flagship, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 750, at this year’s EICMA Motor Show in Milan. The Chennai-based manufacturer hasn’t given us any information regarding its new flagship, but from the spy shots and the teaser video shared by Siddhartha Lal, the CEO of Royal Enfield, we think the bike maker could launch two new models in Milan. While one of them will be based on the Royal Enfield Continental GT cafe racer, the other one looks like it will be based on a more classic motorcycle design. This leads us to believe that the ‘Interceptor’ could be the name of a whole new range of bikes the company intends to launch and not just a model-specific one.

The flagship Royal Enfield will be equipped with a 750cc parallel-twin, fuel-injected, air-cooled engine. This engine is likely to produce around 50PS of power and 60Nm of torque. The cafe racer Interceptor will compete with the Harley-Davidson Street 750, while the modern classic Interceptor will be aimed at the Triumph Bonneville
