Top five models for 2020 and beyond | Local | News

AMCN’s international super-sleuth Ben Purvis predicts five models that could change the future

 1 Aprilia RS660

A surprise concept bike that plucks at the heartstrings of those who remember the heyday of the Aprilia RS250, which put handling and style above straight-line performance.

2 MV Agusta Superveloce

Yes, it’s an F3 800 under the skin, but oh what a skin it is. The Superveloce is so well-proportioned that it could redefine the long-running neo-retro genre.

3 Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 Aero

Ducati’s sublime Supermono of the 1990s proved big single-cylinders could be dream bikes. Let’s hope Husky’s brave effort hits the mark as well.

4 Something from Suzuki

Apart from the new Katana – based on the GSX-S1000 – Suzuki had nothing new in 2018. But there is a lot in the pipeline, including a new Hayabusa – teased way back in 2015 as the Concept GSX – and a  turbocharged, twin-cylinder Recursion.

5 Harley-Davidson Pan America

The Pan America, due on sale in 2020, is arresting and sports a completely new, and modern, V-twin engine. There’s a new streetfighter coming and maybe, just maybe, a fully-faired sportsbike.
