02.2018 BIKES OF MILAN
Is there any reason that a scooter can’t be an adventure bike? Apparently not, according to Honda. The X
ADV scooter has yet to make its way to America.
The Honda Africa Twin has been a great success, not only
in the U.S but in Europe. The concept bike shown at EICMA
has some features that will eventually make production.
The EICMA Show in Milan, Italy, re-
mains the biggest motorcycle show
in the world. This year, adventure
concept bikes and prototypes were
the prevailing theme. The KTM 790
Adventure has the company’s first
parallel-twin motor and is expected
to be a 2019 production bike.
We’ve seen the resurrection of a number of older names in
the motorcycle industry. Mondial is the latest Italian maker
from the old days to resurface with modern designs.
Yamaha showed off the Ténéré 700 World Raid Adventure motorcycle, further expanding on the T7 concept
model first seen in Milan one year ago.
