Motorcycle manufacturers have been hard at work this past few years. In the sportbike realm, they’ve eked more horsepower and less weight out of nipped-and-tucked packages. In the adventure touring world, they’ve made bikes that are more capable than ever before. And in the small-displacement category, they’ve managed to build bikes that actually look like they belong when parked next to their larger-displacement siblings on showroom floors.
While it’s been fun to write about all of the new bikes and the onslaught of electronic rider aids, added power, and more widespread use of titanium, the turn of the calendar has us shifting our attention to the bikes we really, really want to ride in the coming months. Last year was a great one in terms of product (think Yamaha FZ-10, Triumph Thruxton R, Husqvarna 701 Supermoto, etc.), but 2017 could very well top it in terms of fun—assuming these bikes deliver on their promise that is.
