MCN's Executive Editor Phil West takes a look at the new bikes from BMW and Husqvarna that have been launched at the EICMA Milan motorcycle show.

One new model unveiled by BMW is the R1200GS Rallye, with the venerable GS receiving cosmetic updates including BMW Motorrad Motorsport paint, a red frame, wire spoked wheels and Enduro Electronic Suspension Adjustment.

BMW revealed another special edition, the G650 GS Sertão, an off-road version of the G650 that features wire-spoked wheels with a larger 21" front rim, longer travel suspension, handguards and knobbly tyres.

One of the surprises of the show was the Husqvarna MOAB - a Scrambler concept bike that is fully functional and likely to go into production. The MOAB is powered by a 650cc single and is inspired by the Steve McQueen motocross bikes of the late '60s and early '70s, with classic design features including chrome detailed tank, perforated heat shields and retro style seat.
