I absolutely love the idea of combining fashion and motorcycle’s together. I’m not talking about a guy rocking some dope Nike’s on a new R1, that is always going to be around. I’m talking about building a vintage BMW and putting together a period correct layered outfit. Now that, is something that will catch everyone’s eye. I found this picture below and thought these two BMW R-series motorcycles and thought they were the perfect example of this. A classic bike with modern inspiration. Now work on that outfit! I would love to see some cafe, brat, etc style meets in New York. It’s the absolute perfect scene for the look!
I know, I’m super late with this, but I totally forgot about the pictures I took from the show. I always make sure I don’t miss this show at the Javit Center, I don’t like giving opinions on motorcycles until I see them in person and sit on them. There were a lot of bikes I like for the 2012 model year. The pricing on these bikes are getting pretty crazy though. Maybe I’m just used to seeing anything that wasn’t Ducati, sticker for under 10 grand back in the day. Now you can’t get any 1000 for under $12k. I really liked the new Honda CBR’s, the styling was spot on and they felt light and nimble. Wasn’t too crazy about the Suzuki’s and Kawasaki’s but the new ZX-10’s redesign was sick. The Yahama R1 of course, for me is still the bike to beat. You just can’t beat the power, sound and looks of that bike. The Ducati 848 is still my favorite. The flat white and black are to die for and at a VERY affordable price point.
Anyways I didn’t take a crap load of pictures cause the place was packed as always. Here are some from the set.
Pretty sick custom BMW turbo.
A sick custom stretched and dropped R1.
A really nice full faring Triumph cafe racer.
Nice to see Aprilia back in the show. Can’t go wrong with this RSV-4.
A track version of the bike I WILL own one day. The KTM RC8.
On to Ducati with the all new 1199. This looks like a beast and a half!
A couple pictures of my favorite motorcycle. I really would have a hard time choosing a color. HA!
