With all the technological breakthrough in designs, it does not come as a surprise that several up and coming motorcycles are now making a scene. From the 1299 Panigale from Ducati to the Recursion from Suzuki, 2015 is truly a year to grab one of the latest models in the market.
Here are the top must haves every motorcycle enthusiast should have in 2015.
Ducati 1299 Panigale
The Ducati 1299 Panigale is packed to the rim with the latest rider aids that any motorcycle enthusiast should have. This is a lightweight creation despite the fact that it houses an amazing 1299 cc engine capable of reaching 205 horsepower.
This is the latest model from an impressive line up of super bikes from the famous Japanese brand. It is regarded as the most advanced bike from Japan yet. It features banking sensitive traction control, anti wheelie control and the quickshifter. It also boasts a gyro sensor that measures pitch, roll and yaw. It is made up of carbon body fiber work and has an on board GPS system.
This is another variation to the Yamaha lineup of super bikes that was released this year. This model is lighter than the Kawasaki model and costs less as well.
The latest model from Kawasaki has mind boggling features and specifications which made it to this list. The Ninja H2R boasts a 300 horsepower and a power to weight ratio of 1.39 hp/kg. It also has tree stump pulling amounts of torque that makes it look like a Transformers is on steroids.
Honda Africa Twin
Little is known about this up and coming model from Honda but it is reported to be a fairly able machine with a 1,000 cc machine that is lighter and nimbler than previous models of the brand. The official announcement regarding this highly anticipated model is said to be released sometime during the quarter.
MV Agusta F4 RC
With a price tag reportedly at $46,000, the MV Augusta has amazing specifications definitely worth the hefty prize. The model is made purely to race. It boasts a a 210 hp, a titanium exhaust, carbon fiber fittings and magnesium covers just to name a few.
Loosely based on the models that Ducati produced during the 1960’s and the 1970’s, the Scrambler boasts a number of unique features such as old school air cooled engine, single front disc brake and ABS with no electrical aids. This model was specifically made for a younger market. Early reviews of this model are quite positive and is predicted to outsell all of Ducati’s other models combined.
Suzuki’s Recursion was first introduced in 2013 at Tokyo’s Motor Show. This model features a 588 cc, parallel twin, turbo charged engine. The Recursion reportedly has a decent output of 100 hp at a low revving 8,000 rpm. It even has an impressive 73 ft-lb only at 4,500 rpm.
Had this article been written and published a week earlier, the Suzuki Recursion would have been left off this list purely because no one knew it was going to be made. But Japanese magazine, Young Machine, published on the front page of its latest issue that the Suzuki Recursion, a turbocharged motorcycle, would be soon going into production.
