There are just so many bikes and accessories on display at EICMA that it would be impossible for me to do a proper post on each one. This, then, is a post on everything else that caught my eye. Getting right to it…
South Garage Ducati Monster S4R
This is one of the nicest “café” builds I’ve ever seen applied to a Monster. Love the flaked tank and seat cowl, wire wheels and what an exhaust.
More on Italian builders, South Garage, here.
Ever wondered what the electric Brammo Empulse looks like in cross-section? Now you know.
Rotobox Carbon Fiber Wheels
This set of bespoke carbon fiber wheels by Rotobox are claimed by the company to be the lightest in the industry. The front wheel comes in at just under 3kg, while the rear tips the scales at 4kg. Expect to pay upwards of 3,000 Euro for the pleasure.
You also get this handy aluminum box.
I know little about dirt bikes and even less about trials bikes. However, this little guy got my attention. If you wanna get your kid started in trials, the electric GASGAS TXT E could be just the ride.
This three wheeler is the Peugeot ONYX concept scooter that’s really eye catching in
black and white bronze and black. It boasts 60 hp from a hybrid powerplant: an electric motor and 400cc petrol engine.
The ONYX concept scooter comes perhaps as an accessory to the Peugeot ONYX concept car unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in September. The two make quite the pair.
It’s profile is almost impressive as its rear end.
Metisse BMW R1200 R Classic Racer
Well this is just lovely. This is a 2013 BMW R1200 R re-bodied in carbon fiber by German accessories maker Metisse. Sold as a conversion kit, you can turn your 1200R into a one-up, bespoke café racer for under 6,000 euro.
The Bimota Tesi 3D. With its intricate front end, load bearing engine and high style this third generation Tesi is still a marvel today.
I’m not sure that this carbon fiber sub-structure is found on any bike in Bimota’s current line up. Perhaps it’s a teaser of a future Tesi.
The stunning DB11.
I like when all the mechanical bits are left exposed.
A proper trials bike with bespoke carbon bits from Ossa.
Sculpted Termignoni exhaust.
The bike that sets the standard in the litre class.
This looked interesting: a Ducati Diavel in my S2R red with white stripe livery. I don’t like.
Pelpi International Brutus
This looks fun and also like a blown up version of a 50cc children’s trail bike. Not sure what to make of it. More info here.
I like the supercharger style intake protruding the top of the bike. As you can see, the fuel inlet has been placed at the tail end, while the gas tank located under the seat. A base model will set you back around 33,000 euro.
The Piaggio Group debuted the all new Moto Guzzi California 1400 - Touring and Custom models – at this year’s show.
California Touring: a luxury Italian cruiser.
Moto Guzzi V7
That’s it from me on this year’s show.
