EICMA 2023 has come to an end.
Here are our 7 motorcycles that we like at EICMA 2023.
DUCATI ITALJET DRAGSTER 559 TWIN
This is the big brother of the Ducati Italjet Dragster 200. We don’t have a full specification regarding this motorcycle, but we know that it is powered by a 550cc parallel-twin that puts out a power output of 58.33hp. This thing is so unique and intimidating at the same time. Given the engine size, this is a highway-legal bike in our country. The price is expected to be higher than the competition with the likes of Kymco AK550 and Yamaha TMAX.
KTM DUKE 990
The KTM Duke 990’s headlight is new and familiar at the same time, and we really dig the design of it. It gives an antagonist vibes on the motorcycle. It is powered by a 990cc LC8c parallel-twin engine pumping out 90.5 kW and 103 Nm of torque. It only weighs 179 kg, making it one of the lightest motorcycles in its engine displacement.
Honda announced the return of the CBR600RR; we were quite surprised since Honda already has the Honda CBR650R as its middleweight sportbike. It featured a single exhaust directly beneath the tail section of the motorcycle. It is powered by a 599cc four-cylinder engine; it only weighs 185kg, which is lighter compared to its competitor.
Lambreta is famous for its classic scooter, now they announced its first electric scooter, the Elettra which still features the same design as the gas-powered model. It is powered by an 11kW electric motor that has a power output of 15 hp with a top speed of 110 km/h. It can be charged up to 80 percent in just 35 minutes using public chargers.
Kymco announced its newest maxiscooter, the CV-L6. This is for someone who likes an AK550 but with more flexibility in riding it in different road conditions. Scooter and adventure combination will ensure a comfortable ride. It is powered by the same 550cc engine found on the AK550 that pumps out 52.96 hp.
This will replace the current Honda CB500x, the changes from the CB500x are the TFT Display which you can connect your motorcycle to Honda RoadSync, and have a boxier design than the CB500x that is leaning more on the sharp looking front look.
Royal Enfield Himalayan 450
Given the Royal Enfield Himalayan 411 following, many are excited about the Himalayan 450, which solves almost all the problems that the user encounters on the Himalayan 411. It is now powered by a 452 cc engine. The dash has been revamped to a TFT Display, which you can connect via the Royal Enfield App.
We are excited to see these units in person once they arrive here in the Philippines.
