New bikes at the NEC

Looks like there is going to be quite a few new models to check out at the bike show next week:

New metal at the 2011 Motorcycle Show

I think the tiger explorer could be worth checking out, as well as the 1199 panigale obviously! Is anyone else going to the show?

ooooooooo

I've just discovered that I'm stuck in the UK for 2 more weeks, so I might get there.


Will be able to afford to replace my broken 1996 NEC mug, but that's about it.

Yep Suzuki are bringing the new gsx-r1000, and they are unveiling another bike apparently:

New bike reveal for Suzuki at Motorcycle Live

Wonder what it could be?

Motorcycle Live

I'll be going there but not decided on the date yet (I'll probably take a day off to see it when its not too packed).

 

On a side note, does a sportsbike not having traction control mean it's now demoted to 'not worth looking at'? Reality check is that traction control for road bikes is still in its infancy and only really works when the bikes upright. Relying on that technology to get you out of low sides is an accident waiting to happen.

to be honest

i doubt i'd be riding hard enough to even worry the traction control, it's probably a gimmick for most people, but i imagine in the right hands it could be a benefit!

tractor control on a HD?

surely that's equivalent to cruise control not traction control :lol:, i'm betting none of the new bikes at the NEC will feature that!
