AIMExpo offered us some tasty hors d’oeuvres and last month’s Tokyo Show further whetted our appetites with new motorcycles from the Japanese manufacturers, but the main course is now upon us. That’s right, it’s time for the 2017 EICMA Show the largest motorcycle show on earth, where manufacturers from around the world gather in Milan, Italy, to reveal their most exciting new models.
A new, more adventure-focused version of the Honda Africa Twin may be on its way, offering more off-road capability and a larger fuel tank. The new model may make its debut in a couple of weeks at EICMA as a 2018 model. It will likely be based on the Africa Twin Adventure Sports Concept (pictured above) that was shown off in early 2016.
Ducati announced an update to the Monster 821, making it look more like the Monster 1200, including the larger model’s TFT screen. The model refresh comes on the 25th anniversary of the Ducati Monster family, and will be the first of five new or updated motorcycles Ducati will showcase in a couple of weeks at EICMA.
