The fall motorcycle show season kicks off next week in Cologne, Germany, at the semi-annual Intermot exposition. Although manufacturers try to keep secret the news of upcoming bikes that are nearing production, we already know of several that are due to be revealed this autumn. Here’s a list of some of what we’re expecting to see this year:

Keep in mind, the majority of new bikes to be seen this year — especially the Japanese and Italian ones — will probably be held back until the big EICMA show in Milan, Italy, beginning November 6, so we’ve kept the list whittled down to the bikes we believe will most likely be seen at Intermot. Also in the rumor mill but without any spy-photo corroboration is a GS version of BMW’s upcoming G310R, so we’ve added that as a possible option to choose as the bike you’re most excited to see at Intermot beginning October 4.

    It’s the KTM 790/890 Duke and Ducati Monster 800 that I’m most interested is seeing. As far as something I’d actually be most inclined to buy (instantly), though, that would be Yamaha’s Tracer 700 (= FJ-07) if it were to come to the U.S.

    • Gabriel Owens

      The 390 adventure will be a complete game changer.

  • DickRuble

    • Gabriel Owens

      Glass always half empty. No other time in history has there ever been so many amazing bikes for less than 10k.

      • DickRuble

        Which ones, ’cause I only see three interesting ones on this list..and the majority will cost more than 10K..

      • dinoSnake

        Look again: the large majority of those “so many amazing bikes” fit into, if we’re lucky, 4 classifications: supersport, ADV, cafe retro and retro scrambler. So that ‘huge selection’ is deciding which of the 15 models of the same basic idea you’re going to buy.


        No: Double Snore.

  • Starmag

    Z900 or Triumph Scrambler.

  • Gabriel Owens

    Honda X-Adv Scooter. It could be a revelation for people that live in the country.

    • Gabriel Owens

      Also that Husqvarna muscle bike duke copy cat thingy looks like it will be amazing. Huge nuda fan

  • Shlomi

    What about Triumph Street Triple 765?

    • Kevin Duke

      We won’t see that one at Intermot…

      • Born to Ride

        Sad Day

  • Mark Vizcarra

    I only care about the bike that are coming to the US. That is all

  • c w

    surprise SV650S/R?

  • Douglas

    Well, what about the H-D’s, Indians and the like? I thought they were big hits on “the Continent”….

    • Kevin Duke

      H-D and Indian do almost all their reveal in August, so we don’t expect anything new to be shown at Intemot or EICMA.

  • Jim

    Yes, I know it’s not listed, but those new Kawasaki retro bikes look pretty interesting to me. Of those on the list, probably the new mid-sized KTM Duke.

  • Glen

    Ducati Supersport and the Honda X-ADV. Plus the new Husqvarna Vitpilen & Svartpilen.

    • Old MOron

      Yes! Where are Husky’s Pilens, damnit?

  • Patriot159

    The KTM 790/890 Duke/ADV and if it’s built yet, the Yamaha FZ-07 based Tenere. I pine for a 70-80 HP Dual Sport/ADV twin that is under 400 lbs. wet that is better at pavement touring than my modded DR650 while still being as good off road. Current bikes like the Husky 701/KTM 690 Enduros are still too dirt oriented and the middleweight ADV style bikes are way too heavy and not as dirt capable as I want.

  • Old MOron

    G310GS v. 390ADV, bring on the shootout!

  • Old MOron

    Hey MOrons, you’ve covered the Grom extensively. You’ve also steered our attention in the direction of the Z125 and the K-pipe 125. So I would be very interested to know if Mondial’s Hipster is coming to the States.×389.jpg

  • Auphliam

    The American buyer asked “Where’s the Octane R”

    ..and we laughed and laughed

  • Tanner

    where’s the duke?

  • manfromsima

    Not a.
