Re: Eicma 2018

Well, the Kawa release was a bust. The release date 790 ADV R is still unknown as of this time. Hope it’s not a pig and is available in early 2019!

Because we need more "cafe racers" and 300-400cc sport bikes. I think they messed up by killing off the 250s.

Re: Eicma 2018

I’m not sure what the market needs, but I know what I want and nobody seems to have it.

Re: Eicma 2018

This I like. But it will probably be too expensive for my kiddo.

In sunshine and shadow, from darkness till noon
Over mountains that reach from the sky to the moon
A man with a dream that will never let go
Keeps searching to find El Dorado

So ride, boldly ride, to the end of the rainbow
Ride, boldly ride, till you find El Dorado

Re: Eicma 2018

Not sure if this was part of eicma. But it's nice to see some attention to the budget/bigger bikes.

Re: Eicma 2018

If I was 50lb lighter, I kinda like the crf450l. Seems to check off a lot of boxes. Maybe the aftermarket will make some 3/4 ton springs

Re: Eicma 2018

I've been watching this one closely for the last few months. MG finally made it official at EICMA18.

Re: Eicma 2018

THAT....is the beautifully detailed mid sized (well...upper mid) shaft drive ADV bike we've mostly been asking for. At a bit over 500 lbs gassed up its in the ballpark with a V Strom 1000. Horsepower near 90 & bunches of torque. Looks very usable in most riding situations

That’s a great looking bike! There may be an Italian tractor in my future.

Suspension shouldn't be far off of the R. So I'm sure there is already tons of options.

I don't see it happening for me, but it is a good looking bike and they do sound fantastic. I'm glad to see something interesting come out of the show.
