The Quebec City Motorcycle and ATV Show
will feature several new products, including some fresh off the assembly line like the new Kawasaki ZX-10R
with its new, more potent inline-4 and cutting edge technology, in the shape of three ignition and injection modes, the three-setting Sport Kawasaki Traction Control (S-KTRC) and optional ABS system designed by Bosch.
BMW is serving up the K1600GT and K1600GTL, two new touring bikes that will revolutionize the way you travel with their 6-cylinder mills. The new Super Ténéré will be strutting its stuff at the Yamaha stand, crafted for adventure and already incredibly popular in Europe. The new off-road machine includes a bunch of riding aids, such as a three-mode traction control system and ABS brakes.
Suzuki will be unveiling the rejuvenated GSX-R600 and GSX-R750
, penned by the same designer responsible for the latest evolution of the GSX-R1000. The two new bikes are updates of the previous models, a few kilos lighter and boasting a modified engine and chassis for improved performance and user-friendliness both on the track and the road.
After the Streetfighter and Monster 1100 EVO, make way for the Diavel, a roadster vying for the Mr. Universe title and a mix of cruiser and naked styling cues. It takes on muscular dragster models like the Yamaha V Max – and anything else in its path – thanks to a twin-cylinder Testastretta derived from the Superbike and Multistrada.
And don’t forget to drop by the Aprilia stand and take a look at the stunning RSV4 Factory and RSV4 R, both based on the FIM Superbike world championship-winning model ridden by Max Biaggi. And Aprilia might also surprise us with the launch of its new Italian crotch rocket, the RS 125. Keep your fingers crossed!
