Highlights from more than 30 new bikes seen in Milan

Videos by Brett Colpitts and Evans Brasfield

It was another busy year in Milan, Italy, at the world’s biggest motorcycle show: EICMA. The world’s moto manufacturers unleashed their latest wares last week, and we furiously pounded out more than 30 articles about every new bike seen at the convention.

2016 EICMA Show Coverage

Prowling the show floor was our own Evans Brasfield and videographer Brett Colpitts, who together produced 13 videos from the show. Now comes number 14, in which Evans whittles down all the new bikes into our favorites. They range from the supremely exotic to inexpensive new wheels for searching out new adventures. The video below actually includes eight motorcycles, so you get a three-bike bonus!

    These may be your top five from the show but I am interested in only one of those, the Triumph. I personally am not a hooligan rider, 69 years old and all, ruling out silliness. Also, as much as I am glad some quality entry class bikes are improving they won't work for my wife and myself. We're too heavy dressed in atgatt. How about some more practical choices for the more sedate and senior riders mixed in with the youth class machines. AND I don't mean big touring rigs! What is there for us?

      Dale Walker's Holeshot Performance is one of the best. And, he personally takes every order so you can be sure of getting what you need/want. I've dealt with him. Good man.

      The CRF250L Rally and Versys-X 300 have already been confirmed for the US. BMW USA sent out a press release announcing G310GS but it hasn't shown up yet on the commercial site. Suzuki is the only one whose American arm has yet to say anything and the V-Strom 250 is the least likely to come over.
