According to recent reports, two of the most famous motorcycle brands across the world, BMW and KTM have announced that they will not participate in the EICMA 2020 and the INTERMOT 2020 motorcycle shows. The manufacturers were two of the most enthusiastic participants of the motorcycle shows that took place every October and November from the past years though, the recent coronavirus pandemic had made them retreat from participating this year.

Commenting on the decision, BMW Motorrad stated: “this decision was made in order to counteract current planning uncertainty at an early stage, also for all our partners involved in BMW Motorrad motor show appearances, in the interests of the greatest possible security, predictability and transparency.”

“BMW Motorrad will present the world premieres and product highlights planned for these motorcycle shows on alternative platforms in autumn 2020. In doing so, the company will increasingly rely on its formats and digital communication channels”, the company added.

Further stating their decisions, KTM AG, the parent company for KTM, Husqvarna and GasGas motorcycles said – “the proper planning of such events is currently at risk due to the uncertainty surrounding public gathering restrictions in most countries. The annual success of these indoor shows also sees hundreds of thousands of visitors gathering in enclosed spaces for a period lasting days and even weeks. For these reasons, KTM AG has identified its exclusion as a way to contribute towards a safe and strong return to normal activity.”

“Husqvarna Motorcycles will push ahead with current and future projects in order to provide the motorcycling market with exciting and innovative models and look for the best ways to show-off these developments.”

Justifying the decisions further, Hubert Trunkenpolz, KTM AG CMO, said, “Trade shows are key business milestones for the entire motorcycle industry but given the situation, public health and the welfare of our staff are higher priorities over the coming months. We have taken this course of action with a great deal of thought and, as a company, KTM AG would be pleased and interested if show promoters, EICMA in particular, would consider moving dates to 2021, where we hope and expect the situation to be settled and back to normal.”

Since INTERMOT is organised every year in Germany and EICMA is organised in Milan, Italy, both of which have been adversely affected by the monstrosity that is the COVID-19. With so many lives at stake and the risk of infections at its peak, one wouldn’t be much surprised if both the shows get cancelled altogether.

The 2020 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR has been recently revealed by the Italian manufacturer at a price tag of €29,900 (Rs 23.60 lakhs). The motorcycle has been unveiled a year after the launch of the Brutale 1000 Serie Oro limited-edition, which is currently available in the Europen countries with a higher price tag of €42,990 (Rs 33.94 lakhs).

Coming to the RR version of the naked sports machine, the motorcycle is powered by the same 998cc, four-cylinder engine that does duty on the MV Agusta F4 RC. The engine is capable of churning out a maximum power of 208HP @ 13,000 rpm and a peak torque of 116.5Nm @ 11,000 rpm. On the other hand, the 1000 Serie Oro naked motorcycle is good for churning out 212HP of maximum power output.

In terms of design, the motorcycle features various similar bits as that of its limited-edition Serie-Oro variant though the major carbon-fibre wheels and titanium bolts have been left out for the RR variant. The motorcycle now features forged aluminium wheels in addition to getting steel bolts and a full-LED headlight setup. The overall beast look of the motorcycle is further enhanced by a quadruple exhaust system in addition to the sharper body panels, unique oval headlamp design aligning towards the bottom.

The 2020 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR features the same premium electronic package offered to the limited-edition variant. It includes up and down quick-shifter, launch control, 8-traction levels as well as four different riding modes.

MV Agusta has equipped the motorcycle with USD forks by Ohlins at the front adorned in the gold shade while the aero winglets mounted on the radiator further adds to stability at the higher speeds. The motorcycle features disc brakes with Brembo Callipers at either side.

The brand has promised the top speed of the motorcycle to stand above 300kmph. The motorcycle will compete in the market with the likes of Ducati Streetfighter V4, Kawasaki Z H2 and the upcoming 2020 model of the KTM 1290 Super Duke R.

Benelli has been through numerous ups and downs in the last decade, leaving them with varying brand identity in different markets. In some of them, they are still considered an important superbike manufacturer and fans eagerly wait for their revival through new products and important announcements. EICMA 2018 gave them another chance to prove the worth, which they definitely took with their production-ready streetfighter. 2019 Benelli 752S is ready to rock, bringing worthy competition to models like Ducati Monster 797 with a twin-cylinder engine under both options. The parallel twin engine is quite impressive in itself.

Benelli 752S Front 3-Quarter View

Benelli 752S offers 750cc of displacement, four-valves per cylinder and a peak power of 75HP. The engine brings 66.4 Nm of torque, helping with an abundance of pulling power for this 228 kg motorcycle that has a 14.4-litre fuel carrying capacity. The wet weight includes this amount of fuel but still, the overall weight is quite more than motorcycles of this segment. Even those carrying bigger 900cc engines are available with a wet weight of under 210 kg. The cost-effective steel trellis chassis with added steel plates add to the overall weight of the Benelli 752S. It comes with 17-inch wheels at both the ends.

The front end comes with Marzocchi 50mm forks, with rear getting a preload adjustable monoshock. As Benelli has always placed itself as a cost-effective brand in comparison to Ducati and MV Agusta, getting a decently lower price is the reality. The headlight comes with dual projectors and unique shape for attracting more buyers while frame seems to carry the most common design for street bikes. Still, the powerful front and rear braking, along with massive tires make Benelli 752S an attractive option. It even comes with a praiseworthy exhaust system with metallic-finished muffler and black pipes coming out of the engine. Benelli 752S is expected to launch in India later this year.

Benelli Leoncino 800 Concept was revealed for the first time at EICMA 2018. The brand targets Ducati Scrambler as a direct rival, with both of them supporting almost similar displacement and usability. The design and development of Leoncino 800 took just 6 months, taking hints from the existing series of motorcycles and adding further styling for more fun. The engine used here is a re-bored version of 752 Street Fighter’s engine, resulting in more power and direct placement against the Italian rival. The launch is not yet announced but one can expect early arrival in India due to favorable competition.

Leoncino 800 Concept is almost production ready from the first look, leaving fans with an option to either go for Scrambler series in 2018 or wait a few more months for a right comparison between both of them. The styling flaunts typical Lion emblem on the front fender, raised fuel tank with muscular design, well-designed seat and typical Leoncino styling on the headlight and tail light. EICMA 2018 had a bunch of other attractive options from the global manufacturers, leaving Benelli a bit stressed between rising competition and problems being faced in various markets. They are ready for the second official entry into India.

Benelli is currently listing 302R, TNT300, and TNT600i on the Indian website, all of them carrying prices that will be asked on the launch day. The value for money machines are great in comparison to locally assembled options but they are not as effective in terms of competition with Kawasaki range. Benelli should have gone for the local production route to lower down taxes and bring all these machines at effective prices. They are yet to launch a lot of bikes that were seen at last year’s EICMA and expecting all of them once would be a wrong logic. Leoncino 800 still carries most character among all.

Royal Enfield Concept KX, the popular 838cc Bobber that was teased a few days back, is now official at the EICMA 2018. The biggest engine ever from the brand, the typical V-Twin character is visible from those huge cylinders. It was developed in association with Polaris and planted into this low slung Concept KX for the show.

The front features full LED headlamp, along with the unique suspension layout that promises extended wheelbase. The 838cc engine is said to be liquid cooled, producing around 90 PS of power and 100 Nm of torque. The values are totally mind blowing, considering the fact that it will be the fastest Royal Enfield ever planned till date.

The Royal Enfield Concept KX comes with twin front disc brakes and single-sided swingarm for the premium feel and effective braking. The design lines will be used as a base for future products, hinting at full LED headlamp and dual exhausts for RE bikes in the coming years.

BMW C400 GT was revealed at the EICMA 2018, loading itself with more equipment for the perfect GT treatment for middleweight scooter fans. The front section is upgraded, featuring new LED lights and taller windscreen for all weather protection. C400 GT is powered by the same 34 BHP engine but suspension comes with certain improvements for plusher ride. The seat is now bigger than the standard version, giving more space for keeping the personal stuff, along with comfortable overall riding feel.

BMW C400 GT comes with additional storage space with a flap that extends when parked and needs to be folded before running again. The console here is all-digital, getting more options than any other product from this segment. BMW has no plans of bringing scooter range to India as no other brand has ventured into this space in recent times. The 400cc scooter is for developed markets where products with comfort enhancing features are preferred over value for money substitutes.

Hero xPulse 200T is the production version for the xPulse Concept seen last year at EICMA. This year, the motorcycle is seen with production ready skin, carrying matte finished fuel tank and gloss front under seat panel. Hero xPulse is seen with comfortable long seat that extends slightly forward for comfort packed long distance and adventure riding. The motorcycle comes with a rear luggage carrier and small front headlight with transparent visor. Hero MotoCorp uses telescopic suspension with 190mm of travel at the front and rear monoshock with 170mm of travel. The setup brings 220mm worth clean ground clearance to the xPulse 200T.

The motorcycle comes with 825mm of decent seat height, making this the highest ever seat from Hero’s own production range. The architecture for xPulse 200T is based on the Xtreme 200R, helping them keep the overall cost lower than usual adventure bikes. The front and rear wheel is available with Ceat dual purpose tires for better grip levels. Hero has surprisingly used alloy wheels on the tourer, putting tubeless tires in action for ease during any leaks on the road. The engine used here is the same 200cc motor seen under the Xtreme 200R, producing 18.4 PS and 17.1 Nm on the streetfighter. The tune here is expected to be more torque focused than the peak power.
