2017 Moto guzzi V7 III

A tribute to 50 years of passion and craftsmanship.

Celebrating 95 years for a company is a big thing, and to have survived against all the odds was a mountainous task for Moto Guzzi. Even after having such a rich racing history of winning almost 3000 races and a couple dozen world championships, the name Moto Guzzi had eerily vanished from the motorcycle scene, until now. The calm before the storm.

Paying tribute to their past, MG headed to a major revival plan and launched the new range of V9 platform that angles towards the cruiser style rather than the V7’s roadster theme. And now, the brand is getting the third iteration of their most celebrated model, the V7 which is also the first model created by MG. Celebrating the 50th year of the first, the brand is launching the V7 III which will have four editions to it: Stone, Special, Racer and a celebratory entrant Anniversario.

Manufacturers and now foraying into the current wave of enthusiasts wanting custom and classic motorbikes. And for Moto Guzzi, it has its own deep roots to draw upon for inspiration from which the ‘V7s have been prepped up for the consciousness of the new generation of motorcycling. The V7 models will be the same breed of bikes that differ slightly to imprint different characters carrying the same soul.

OVERVIEW 2017 Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro

2017 Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro Pro

The wild one gets bigger teeth and claw to take up anything coming its way.

We all know that Ducati is one such motorcycle maker which makes machines straight from the heart. Every motorcycle in the stable of Ducati speaks of some purpose which is beautifully blended with the pinch of hardcore passion. Ducati made a surprising move some half a decade ago when it unveiled the Multistrada for the first time in front of the world. Out of all the motorcycles from Ducati, the Multistrada proved out to be the most practical motorcycle which still doesn’t miss out on the specific Ducati principles.

The Multistrada gradually went on creating a new niche of motorcycles, thus changing the image of Ducati as a manufacturer of only hard-core supersports. Then in 2015, they gave us the Enduro edition. Unlike the urban design of the standard Multistrada 1200, the new Multistrada 1200 Enduro claims to expose the wild side of Ducati, with its pure adventure appeal.

Now in 2017, the brand has taken it to the next level. They have given the adventure junkie more tools to let the 1200 Enduro go “even more globetrotter with the Pro version”. To allow treading on even less-beaten track, the Pro features rally tyres, new tank bars, new colour schemes, type-approved titanium exhaust sets and more. Let me go ranting about them:

Ducati is giving the world one last taste of the L-twins by unveiling the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition.

This will mark the end of the L-twin Italian superbikes, but also is the mark of new four cylinder beginnings.

They say that when you end the show, you must do it with a bang. Ducati here seems to just know how to conclude their greatest show of all time, the Panigale. Amidst the beautiful setup of Pebble Beach, California, the Italian brand unveiled their final adieu to the L-twins with the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition.

Aptly named, this last one gets all the bells and whistles some of which made headlines with the 1299 Panigale, the Panigale R and the 1299 Superleggera. Apart from being a pretty Tri-colour paint job, it gets an upgraded engine and other mechanicals that takes the superbike to new levels of lust. At $40,000 (USA) it will also be the second most powerful twin-cylinder engine to run on our streets (after the Superleggera of course).

OVERVIEW 2017 Triumph Street Triple

2017 Triumph Street Triple

The Brit’s purebred attempt at slaughtering anything coming against it.

Over the past couple of years, Triumph has been sweating it out on the arena and treating us with exceptionally new modern classics over and over again. Their Bonneville range is selling as fast as they can make them and just when you thought it’s time for them to take a well-deserved breather, they just pushed themselves to change the rules of the street and prove that they can still rule the popular roadster/streetfighter category.

Triumph, a manufacturer having more than two decades of experience in building top class motorcycles, has bet big on their new upgraded Street Triple model. Giving the riders a distinctive appeal was the characterful and thrilling 675cc triple cylinder engine that had previously made the Street Triple what it was. The small roadster motorcycle became a Triumph icon back then, and the British brand has set to repeat the same with an all-new 2017 Triumph Street Triple.

It will now have a 765cc under the hood and will come in three variants: S, R and RS, each with their unique level of power, performance, technology and distinctive attitudes. With cutting edge technology, earth shattering equipment list, attention to detail and a new sinister powerplant, looks like the Brits have concocted a winner. Get on and choose your pick.
