What's the next big thing in bikes?

Biking has undergone something of a revelation recently, with an adventure bike now being the UK's top selling big bike, Honda releasing a retro bike, and Yamaha looking at a triple engine. So where do you see the future? Are Triumph and MV right with three cylinders? Are Honda bang on with the CB1100?

It's gonna be a sort of active suspension. Top of the line sports bikes Panigales and HP4 S1000rr Beemers have it already. And my guess is cheaper bikes will follow. Mind you, tecnnology isn't always great. I love the MV Brutale 800 . It's so verry pretty, it's nimble has great brakes and the engine should also be great. But than again it has 8(yes8) traction control settings, but a proper throttle response in any of those settings? Nope it has ride by Wire throttle wich is almost lethal. Oh a brutale800 with good old carbs? How sweet would that 3 cilinder pick up revs..

Snev, you're too kind. Might see you on the Dark Side then.

By the way, I can also see more active safety systems being brought in to try and reduce casualties, along with compulsory wearing of protective clothing etc. Let's face it, making it an offence not to wear the right kit is an easy way to dish out fines and raise yet more revenue. Sod freedom of choice etc., we're an easy target really.

Sigh.............

How about

£0 road-tax for smaller capacity bikes and scooters.  If some cars can have it, why not a 130mpg CBF125?

100mpg AND 100bhp?

+1 on the turbo diesel. Merc and BMW top of the range performance (!) cars are TD, many vans are now going to small high performance TD, its about time we enjoyed that torque and mpg (fuel price is only going one way!). I also cant see why we still put up with chain-drive on road bikes, BMW have shaft on 175bhp bikes and you cant feel it, Yamaha had it on mopeds - clean shaft drive on everything please. I’d also like to see a proper switched FI, commuter mode high mpg for the week and sports mode high bhp for the weekend, maybe even fuzzy-logic FI that adjusts re how you ride each day?
