The last quarter of each year gives us a glimpse into the future as motorcycle manufacturers begin to display the latest machines we’ll see in showrooms during the upcoming year. Last month saw the introduction of a new engine platform from Harley-Davidson, plus the unveiling of more than 20 new or revised bikes at the biennial Intermot moto show in Germany.

Now it’s America’s turn. Already this week we’ve seen a new power bagger from BMW in the K1600B debuting in L.A., but the focus next shifts to the East Coast and the AIMExpo in Orlando, Florida. AIME continues to grow each year since its inaugural event in 2013.

The 2016 AIMExpo begins with two full media days Oct. 13-14 before opening to the public on the weekend. As with the previous two years, we’ve got an editor and a videographer on the scene to bring you all the news from the show as it happens in words, photos and videos. Yamaha may steal the headlines with the debut of what’s almost certainly a new YZF-R6 Thursday morning. Stay tuned!

2016 AIMExpo Wrap-Up

2016 AIMExpo Wrap-Up
  • DickRuble

    The Intermot novelties were so-so at best. Hard to get excited about what’s left..

    • spiff

      I know you aren’t a fan, but the new SDR has to break cover.

      • DickRuble

        I am quite a fan of the performance and ergonomics… just skeptical about build quality.

        • spiff

          Ah man, your coming around. :)

  • Matt Forero

    And Yamaha may even add on top of THAT with BOLD NEW COLORS for the FZ-07 and sorry… redesign for 2018.

  • Starmag

    The choices offered by OEM’s are staggering. There’s been unbelievable, almost desperate niche cramming lately. It makes me wonder if overall sales aren’t too good or are on the decline. Ten years ago you would have been laughed at for suggesting a BMW bagger, and yet, here it is.

    Just read about the 2017 Yamaha FZ-09 (“FZ-09 2.0). Quite a package for $8,999!
