The automotive world has massive, industry-defining press events at Geneva, Detroit, and Tokyo every year, and every year these shows see the debuts of jaw-dropping concept cars. For motorcycles, however, there is really only EICMA, and EICMA is awesome. The new/future bikes are below, the one-off customs are over here.
For 2014, the 100th anniversary EICMA show saw the unveiling of a number of new bikes based on the latest, ultra lightweight, ultra fast, ultra-expensive MotoGP machinery. Retro-styled concepts from Triumph and Husqvarna were shown off along with radically forward-looking concepts from Kawasaki and an updated version of Suzuki’s industry-leading fuel-cell Burgman was also shown off. Down the hall, Harley-Davidson’s electric LiveWire concept drew massive crowds, as did the latest in a long line of legendary Yamaha R1 liter bikes. It’s one thing to describe the awesome depth and breadth of what the world’s motorcycle-makers had on display for 2014, and it’s entirely another to see these two wheeled masterworks for yourself.
Short of flying to Italy last week, the massive floor gallery at the show’s official press site is best place to see these incredible motorcycles. I’ve picked out a few of my favorites, below, and encourage you to check out the rest over at the official EICMA photo gallery.
