There’s a lot of hype surrounding the 2015 model year. With so many new models coming from almost every manufacturer, it’s hard not to be excited. And of all those new models slated to arrive within the coming months, this week’s Top 10 lists the ones your MO crew are most anxious to ride.

This list is comprised of bikes no one on staff has yet ridden, meaning models like the KTM RC390, Yamaha FJ-09, Ducati Scrambler, BMW R1200R, and both Kawasaki Versys models, the 650 and 1000, weren’t included. Yes, we realize we left out a few, but with such a wide variety available to choose from, finalizing a list of 10 bikes was no easy task. Did we include your favorites? Tell us your picks in the comments section. Here are our choices.

    Scrambler… Scrambler… ???

    • TroySiahaan

      We didn’t include 2015 models we’ve already ridden, the Scrambler being one of them. Says so right there in the second paragraph.

    • Kyle Smith

      Bare in mind the KTM SX350 puts out more power, they’d have to tune a few more ponies out of this engine to make it worthwhile considering the weight of it.

  • Kosta Chachanidze

    not that it was anmounced but still, not at all anticipating hondas “new africa twin?”

    • denchung

      That will assuredly be a 2016 model, not a 2015.

  • fastfreddie

    What about catering to us extremely rich busdrivers?Hello?!Where is hondas rcv213v in this list.All I see is rather plain motorcycles here…

  • panthalassa

    rideadvice says $15,998 for the base turismo veloce.
    good lookin’ bike, but it better really handle well, ’cause $5000+ sure will buy a lot of tires for the fj-09.

      I just found this article, but to compare a Yamaha to a MV Agusta is like comparing a Ford to a Ferrari.

  • johnny mars

    These hyper bikes leave me cold and cranky from their painful riding positions and extreme pricing. Just gimme a comfortable, versatile, and economical sporty ride like the FJ-09, V-Strom 650, Tiger 800 X, or Kawasaki Versys 650 – 90% of the fun for half the cost. I’ll see you in Pantagonia.

    The Vulcan S – Something new? Seriously? This has been done countless times.

    • Zandit75

      With a parallel twin?

  • Amir

    Very exciting category, evolving rapidly with many new models. Would be interesting to compare the “first class” bikes of the category, s1000xr / Multistrada / Ktm1190, with the more “value for money” bikes Versys / Fj-09 / Vstrom / Caponord. For one I’d love to know can a 160 hp really be put to use on a tour/adventure chassis ?!?
