So far this year there’s been two big motorcycle shows: Intermot in Germany, and AIMExpo in Orlando. During those two shows, major manufacturers introduced no less than 22 brand new or heavily revised models for 2017. Include some of the lesser known OEMs, such as Benelli, SSR, and National Moto & Cycle we reported on from AIMExpo, and the list grows larger. There’s more to come next month at EICMA, but for now, we’re curious to know which of the following models pushes your buttons; floats your boat; tickles your fancy… Just vote for one.

A former staffer who has gone on to greener pastures, Tom Roderick still can't get the motorcycle bug out of his system. And honestly, we still miss having him around. Tom is now a regular freelance writer and tester for when his schedule allows, and his experience, riding ability, writing talent, and quick wit are still a joy to have – even if we don't get to experience it as much as we used to.

    I presumed money was not an object, but still didn't pick the most expensive bike, or even top 3 as far as $ go. I'm too tall and old to ride a dedicated sport bike, that only left a few choices.

      I'm too old and small (5'6", 160) for all of the dedicated tourers, ADVs, and most of the other bloated modern offerings, so I'm attracted to the Ducati and most anything that is smaller and lighter.

    Of this sampling, i chose the CBR 1000RR SP. Because, it was indeed long overdue for a serious update. They lowered the weight to that of most 600's, added about 10hp, a whole electronics package, Ohlins/ Brembo, what's not to like???
    It may not be the best or the fastest in the category, however, it is a definite improvement over the previous model, and the non SP version makes for one of the best street super bikes available based on blogger feedback.
    My current ride: 2013 Honda CB1000R
