Hottest New Bikes

Motocycle .com lists their ten hottest bikes for 2011.  Among them are the new Ducati Diavel, Kawasaki ZX-10, and a bike that practically no one has even seen, the new BMW K1600GT.

I know that I’ll be seeing it as soon as they get one to California.

In addition, Motorcycle USA presents their annual Best of 2010 Awards.

Among other things, they list the BMW S1000RR as the Best Sportbike of the year.  I haven’t ridden one yet since a pure sportbike isn’t really my cup of tea, so I see no reason to subject myself to the tortuous ergos.  But I note that, while it won all of the MotoUSA shootouts, it hasn’t actually been the top bike on the WSBK circuit.

They also pick the Triumph Thunderbird as the best cruiser.  So, go figure.
