The EICMA show in Milan is the place to be to see all the unveilings from European manufacturers. Yesterday Ducati uncovered its three new models for ’08 (the 1198cc 1098R, new 848 and totally redone Monster 696), and today the wraps came off the rest of the Euro manufacturers.
KTM's RC8 roadracer looks as angular as the prototype shown several years ago, Moto Morini has a very attractive looking 1200cc enduro-style machine that, well, looks, a lot like the bike it's aiming for: BMW's R1200GS. MV has upgraded the Brutale with a bigger 982cc engine and is offering a blue F4 with the number "1078" on the fuel tank making it patently obvious the bike's displacement. Other notables include a new 1200cc Twin from Aprilia that's awaiting a chassis and wheels, BMW is offering a new half-pint GS model, and the Honda Transalp lives on... in Europe. Sorry, America. It seems we let that one slip out of our hands years ago, but it seems we can anticipate a 919 replacement. Let's read the rest from Yossef, and see what he saw today in Milan. And be sure to check out our extensive photo gallery for more pics and info.
