Motorcycles are enjoying an increase in popularity as more riders than ever before are getting around on two wheels. While there are already many classic bikes out there, we reckon some of the new models are going to get your attention. These are the 2019 motorcycles we can’t wait to ride.
Harley-Davidson FXDR 114
This all-new Harley looks to change the game for the iconic manufacturer. It changes both the look and stance, making riders seems more aggressive and less casual. The lines have taken inspiration from a jet fighter, but the speed from the machine is unlike anything you’d find from a regular cruiser. The Milwaukee-Eight, V-Twin engine brings 1868 cc’s of power under your legs to make this one of the most exciting rides of 2019.
BMW R 1250 GS
If it’s the future of motorcycles you’re looking for, then the BMW R 1250 GS is that bike. The engine comes with an all-new variable camshaft control system that delivers consistent power delivery at all ranges.
It’s known as ShiftCam, but it’s not the only great feature. The R 1250 GS comes with an all-new electronics system that gives riders access to GPS navigation, phone, speed, revs, and music. As motorcycle technology gets more hi-tech, the BMW R 1250 GS is at the forefront of the evolution.
One of the most iconic motorcycles of all-time is back on the market thanks to Kawasaki resurrecting it. The Katana is inspired by the ‘80s, and with retro being so popular right now, this bike will be turning heads everywhere you go. It offers a three-mode traction control system which makes riding this blast from the past easier than ever before, but if you want a challenge, it can be turned off. The Katana comes equipped with an LCD screen, 147 bhp, and a smooth throttle response.
The three-wheeled bike market has been looking for a standout model to convert the masses from classic two-wheeled motorcycles. The Yamaha Niken might just be the bike that sees more riders than ever before get on board with riding a trike.
Those who have been fortunate enough to ride it have said the extra grip makes it corner as if it’s on rails. It has been expertly designed to feel like riding on two wheels, but the additional rubber on the road means tackling wet, cold, or uneven surfaces are a breeze.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR
If it’s speed you want from life, then the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR is the motorcycle of your dreams. It was inspired by the bike that won four World Superbike Championships and brings that raw speed from the track to the road. There is an increase in torque from last year’s model, while the suspension has brought better handling so you can push the motorcycle to its limits.
The world of motorcycles continues to get more exciting each year. These are the bikes we’re looking forward to the most in 2019 that promise thrills each time you get on the back of them.
