The 21st century is a time of rapid development of all types of industry, constant updates and the introduction of something completely new. It would seem that a few years ago, avid conservatives said that there would be no electric bikes in their lineup, but now Harley Davidson reports that its LiveWire already accelerates to a hundred in a couple of seconds and has a fast charging system. Even Ural Motorcycles has shown a prototype of an electric motorcycle. Masters of the old school stealthily brushed away a stingy tear in anticipation of the new items taking over the world, but for now, a selection of the most anticipated motorcycles in the near future.
This list can be expanded, here is a selection of the brightest models.
2020 Suzuki Katana
Suzuki took inspiration from the already legendary Katana, designed to convey the spirit of the traditional Japanese sword, and returned to the original 1982 Suzuki Katana. The new version uses the developments of the long-stroke GSX-R1000 engine to generate 150 hp. and the stability of the GSX-S1000, as well as engine management, which can be learned from the GSX-R.
Suzuki pays attention to the fit and the aluminum alloy twin spar frame. The new model has a reinforced Superbike swingarm. The sports bike is still similar to the original, but there are also LED turn signals and a new dashboard.
2020 Ducati V4 Streetfighter
Where can we go without Ducati? The novelty immediately recognized the basic design of the Panigale engine, which was adapted for urban driving. Professionals joke that this motorcycle makes MotoGP right out onto city roads because it uses biplane fenders. Manufacturers believe they stabilize the bike during acceleration and braking.
Panigale’s design is based on a 5-inch TFT color panel. The Streetfighter V4 S has Öhlins suspension components including a TTX 36 rear shock. What else? And 208 hp, in 1 103 cc, is not enough for you with an engine with this equipment?
The Streetfighter V4 is planned for base and S-model versions, the latter being equipped with additional bells and whistles, including Öhlins suspension. She is also promised forged aluminum wheels. And to make driving in the city more enjoyable, the specialists worked on the landing and made a wider steering wheel, which gives more freedom to the pilot.
2020 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto
If I were to describe this motorcycle in a nutshell, I would say this: “little angry”. And she has several options.
In 2020, users are looking forward to Husqvarna Motorcycles 701 SUPERMOTO and 701 ENDURO, which are equipped with the latest electronic devices, including ABS and Easy Shift.
The third model, which is more intriguing than others, is based on the 701 ENDURO, this is the 701 ENDURO LR (Long Range), which implies refinements for those who like to travel. Motorcyclists were delighted with the optional 12-liter auxiliary fuel tank. It increases the total fuel supply from 13 to 25 liters! Miracles and nothing more.
The models use a 692.7cc single-cylinder engine. power of 74 h.p.
2020 BMW Concept R 18/2
The cruiser from BMW Motorrad will hit the market in 2020 and has an updated Big Boxer engine already spotted on the Departed by Japanese Custom Works Zon and the Revival Birdcage from Texas-based Revival Cycles.
19 spoke wheels at the front and 16 inches at the rear, a drop tank, a leather seat and a more aggressive fit … Highlights include a muffler from Hattech, which has a reputation for producing exhaust systems for classic and custom bikes.
Personally, this is my favorite on this list, because such a technological and elegant reference to retro cannot but rejoice.
2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin
The new engine received an increase in the piston stroke by 5 mm, as a result, the engine volume increased to 1084 cc. Manufacturers have redesigned the cylinder heads with increased valve lift, a larger choke body, and a new injector arrangement that now allows fuel to be sprayed more directly into the combustion chamber.
In order to increase power while reducing emissions, Honda has developed a novelty – a muffler with an adjustable exhaust gas valve (ECV).
There is one more reason to thank the developers. In previous models, the subframe was welded, but here it is screwed on, which facilitates repair work and does not require replacing the frame in case of breakdown.
Many new products, many expectations.
2020 KTM 890 Duke R
Claiming success, the creators have surpassed public expectations in almost every respect. More power, less weight, only the frame remains unchanged. The best brakes among brothers and a modified suspension. “Fierce and charged” – that’s how you can describe this naked.
2020 Triumph Rocket 3
It will be released in two versions – R and GT. It is logical that the former has a more sporty fit. Both versions have a new 2,458 cc in-line three-cylinder engine. I think you can already guess that this is the largest engine that you can find on a non-production motorcycle. Engineers developed new shafts, installed a dry sump with an oil tank and added a 6-speed gearbox. As a result of such executions, the motor became lighter by as much as 18 kilograms!
Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade 2020
It is undeniably awaited for its ultra-modern and short-stroke 999.9cc inline four-cylinder engine. If you look for the manufacturer’s official press releases, we see here 217.5 hp. at 14500 rpm. Track-inspired suspension and electronics. That says it all.
2020 Kawasaki Z H2
The 998cc turbocharged engine seen on the Ninja produces 197bhp. from. What else? Showa suspension kit with SFF-BP inverted fork at the front and one shock at the rear.
The motorcycle has a new TFT color display compatible with the Kawasaki Rideology app, which allows the rider to record data and even select certain settings while away from the motorcycle.
2020 Yamaha MT-03
Many people love the MT series, so the update is awaiting with interest. The new MT-03 uses a Yamaha R3 motor. The motorcycle has received improvements in suspension, optics and tuning. Focused on urban youth.
2020 Energica Eva Ribelle
The main achievement of the new electric bike is considered to be an increase in the power reserve; now it is able to travel up to 400 kilometers without recharging and recharge by 80% in 42 minutes. The engine has a capacity of 145 hp. from. It is promised that the maximum speed of the motorcycle will be 205 km / h.
The curb weight will be equal to 270 kilograms.
2021 Husqvarna Norden 901
Another highly anticipated motorcycle is based on the KTM 790 Adventure R and will feature a new engine from the KTM 890 Duke R 2020. Already it is predicted to be a success, but bad luck, the price is promised to it as powerful as the motorcycle itself.
2021 Harley-Davidson Pan America
Harley-Davidson Pan America carries a 1250cc liquid-cooled 60-degree v-twin Revolution Max. A semi-active suspension is expected, Brembo brakes and a full TFT dashboard are expected.
There are many controversies and questions around this model, but the fact that it is very much awaited is definitely a fact.
2021 Yamaha Ténéré 700
Some have been waiting for him and will have to wait a little longer. But it is already known that the new model uses the Yamaha CP2 engine, which does not differ mechanically from the 270-degree parallel twin and is liquid-cooled. This engine is familiar to many as it was used in the MT-07 and XSR700. Engineers played with gear ratios and got favorable characteristics.
On Super Ténéré models for a long time it was not possible to disable ABS, but here in the Ténéré 700 it is.
Ténéré features specific modifications and a new muffler. For the convenience of users, the fit and windshield have been modernized. The curb weight with a full tank, according to Yamaha, is equal to 204 kilograms.
