EICMA, also known as the International Bicycle and Motorcycle Exhibition, is Europeís biggest motorcycle trade shows, and traditionally the site of numerous world premieres. Last yearís show drew about 450,000 visitors for the introduction of motorcycles such as the Ducati Multistrada 1200, KTM 350SX-F and BMWís inline six concept bike.
Honda opted to skip the 2009 EICMA show because of the economic downturn, but it will return for the 2010 EICMA show, Nov. 2-7 at the Milan Fair. Honda will introduce eight new models on the Nov. 2 press day, though itís not dropping any hints yet about what will be on display.
The Japanese manufacturer will also be at the 2010 Intermot show, Oct. 6-10 in Cologne, Germany, where it will launch its already-announced 2011 models such as the tri-color Shadow RS.
