2020 might have been an unusual year, but that doesn’t mean that motorcycle companies weren’t busily churning out new models, trying to entice buyers.
We saw some real beauties last year, many of which you’ll want in your quiver.
The Harley Davidson LiveWire
The Harley Davidson LiveWire is the company’s latest attempt to produce the ultimate free-wheeling cruiser to make you look like you’re a member of the Sons of Anarchy.
This bike, though, is very different from the rest of the company’s line up. Unlike the rest of the firm’s product range, it’s electrically powered, meaning that you can cruise with it all day long, without having to worry about carbon emissions. And because it’s a bike, the range is pretty good too. You should get at least 100 miles out of it, and probably more – great for cruising around time.
Indian Motorcycle Thunder Stroke Models
For many, Indian Motorcycle’s release of Thunder Stroke models went under the radar. But the new bike offers a lot of what bikers want from their rides in the modern world.
Every bike, for instance, comes with a 116ci engine and plus connected ride features. Thus, while the bike offers an internal combustion engine as standard, you get many of the electronics you’d normally find via a more progressive brand.
The Suzuki C50
If you like lots of polished chrome on your motorcycle, you’ll love the Suzuki C50. The bike features metallic-effect exhausts, stanchions and front light. And it comes with some gorgeous paint schemes that will help you look like a boss on the road. In fact, B.O.S.S is one of the names in the company’s new lineup.
The Triumph Rocket
Triumph is a brand that isn’t afraid to take risks in the design of its vehicles, and the Rocket is no exception. It’s an expensive vehicle and the company says that it will only make 750 of the original Rocket 3 TFC. However, it is planning full production runs of Rocket 3 R and Rocket 3 GT in the coming months, allowing you to get your hands on this vehicle.
The Honda Rebel
If you want to ride a bike that looks just about as badass as they come, then try out the Honda Rebel 300 and 500. The company deliberately blacks out all the engine components, mudguards and bodywork, including the exhaust and suspension to give the bike a more rebellious appearance. Just combine this bike with the BMW Motorrad helmet and you’ll look like a monster on the road.
The Arch KRGT-1
Last year, Arch released its latest power cruiser, the KRGT-1. The bike features a host of updates to its design, including better brakes, a new swingarm and improved bodywork.
The vehicle also looks much better too. The oversized front end will be a welcome addition for many. And the three pistons on both front callipers are a sight to behold – this is a high-performance vehicle.
So which of these was your favourite motorcycle from last year?
