10 “hottest” motorcycles in 2013

No matter what your preference is, a cruiser or a sports bike, no matter how much you love the environment, as long as you are interested in motorbikes and knowledgeable about them, the list of 10 models below is it. What you need to learn and wish to know.

1. Aprilia Caponord 1200

The new year begins a competition in the segment of large displacement motorbikes. But what Beemer’s standard motorcycle brand needs to do is not to worry but just continue to maintain its form and take down all challenges like in the 2012 Adventure-Tourer race. This year brings an Aprilia Caponord reborn, first launched at EICMA 2012.

The Caponord has the foundation of a great long-distance machine. RSV4-inspired styling, ABS, traction control system, multiple riding modes, and adjustable windshield make the technology-packed Caponord a strong candidate for this year’s AT crown.

“Since its introduction, the Ducati Multistrada has single-handedly occupied a segment,” said the content editor of motorcycle.com magazine. “The new Caponord, with its semi-active suspension, seems finally worthy of racing against the Ducati.” Indeed, it was interesting to see Caponord stack up not only against GS but also against many other candidates.

2. BMW R1200GS

The new liquid-cooled GS is arguably the most anticipated motorcycle this year. “The GS is a true icon in the motorcycling world and is BMW’s best-selling model,” said editor-in-chief Kevin Duke. The liquid cooling system is a key contributor to this bike’s success and will likely reestablish its lead in AT racing.

That’s a somewhat optimistic statement, but with the help of a new engine with 123 horsepower and 125 Nm of torque, the task is not too difficult. Especially if you take a closer look at the technologies that the 1200GS possesses as well as its epic achievements in AT competition history, you will ask yourself if there is anything this impressive bike cannot do. .

3+4. Ducati Hypermotard 821/Hyperstrada

Hypermotard with a new engine makes us a bit overwhelmed at the first moment. “The 821cc liquid-cooled V-Twin engine brings the Hypermotard into a new era with more power than any other model in the Hyper series,” said Duke.

Meanwhile, a hybrid product also uses the 821cc engine, the Hyperstrada, combined with some of the features we love about the Hyper and Multi. While the Hyperstrada may be a better choice, both models pose a threat to your driving license. In terms of technology, the Ducati brothers own three driving modes, a comfortable suspension system that is good at running on all terrains. The 4-valve 4-cylinder engine offers more power than its 1100cc air-cooled 2-valve predecessor.

5. Honda CB500F, CB500X and CB500R

Although it does not “scream fire” or incorporate new technology, the CB500 platform is still a new direction for the mighty Honda. Not only that, it is also a pleasant surprise for the list we are talking about because these three cars are the models with the most modest technology here. However, low tech doesn’t mean less interesting. Because really, many people simply like to ride motorcycles with less than 150 horsepower.

Whether you’re in sporty, casual mode or in an Adventure-Touring race, the big question is whether the 500cc Twin engine in the CB500F, CB500X and CB500R is enough to attract people to the showroom. However, combining the diversity of the vehicle line with Honda’s reliability and the phenomenal price of 6,000 USD, we are sure many people will be won over.

6. KTM 1290 Super Duke

With its charm and sexiness, the 1290 Super Duke is enough to attract any man who loves speed and make his wife crazy with jealousy. The new Duke is equipped with a modified version of the LC8 1195cc V-Twin engine that appeared on the RC8R.

No matter how allergic people are to bold and aggressive marketing claims, we’re sure they won’t be offended by KTM calling the 1290 a monster.

With traction control, ABS, aluminum wheels, Brembo brakes, WP suspension, aluminum swingarm and separate trellis frame, this beast can create a real whirlwind when riding on it. road.

7. Moto Guzzi California 1400

During test drives, the 2013 Moto Guzzi California 1400 surprised everyone with the power and comfort of the redesigned product, its refined handling and excellent braking system.

California, introduced in 1971, never gained the necessary appeal to Americans and production was scaled back after Piaggo acquired Guzzi in 2004.

Under Piaggio’s wings, Guzzi re-engineered the product for 2013, giving it the largest 1380 cc European V-Twin engine ever. Cruise control, ABS, driving modes and traction control are also newly added. The result is a comprehensive package called the California 1400 that is expected to hit dealerships this spring in two versions: sport and standard. In addition, California 1400 will also have a special edition.

8+9. MV Agusta Rivale 800/Brutale 800

Ducati is not the only Italian automaker to launch two models using the same engine. Not to be outdone, both Rivale 800 and Brutale 800 of MV Agusta are looking for opportunities to surpass their compatriots from Bologna equipped with an improved version of the Triple 675cc that appeared on the F3 but with a capacity of up to 800cc. With the shape and intrinsic appeal the Triple brings, the bike is sure to be a great street tool.

Although the Brutale platform is not new, the addition of an 800cc engine and accompanying electronics package will pose a serious threat to the faces of this list.

Besides, with a high driving position, Brembo brakes, slim chassis and 125 horsepower, it’s not hard to imagine why the Rivale is one of the most rumored cars of 2013.

10. Triumph Daytona 675/R

“The best 3-cylinder sports bike on the market that’s even better in 2013” is exactly what everyone is buzzing about the Triumph Daytona 675R.

The main highlight is the new engine with a new chassis, updated suspension and exhaust changes to create a great handling machine.
