KTM 990 Duke
One step away from being considered a liter bike. The KTM 990 Duke has been one of the most anticipated within the new generation of the Austrian brand. A naked that brings many new features, both aesthetic and performance, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Duke saga. It has a more aggressive and sharper design than ever, with very particular front optics. It’s most impressive and exciting feature is its engine: the twincylinder LC8c, completely updated with new pistons, crankshaft and connecting rod that generates 123 HP and 103 Nm of torque. A beast of an engine in a bike that weighs only 394 lbs (dry) that must be extremely fun and exhilarating to ride
Moto Guzzi Stelvio
The Moto Guzzi Stelvio is an elegant trail bike with 19” front wheel and 17” rear wheel. With spoked wheels and cardan shaft, the new bike of the Italian brand is more than ready for any adventure. Its V-twin transverse to the direction of travel has a capacity of 1,042 cc, four valves per cylinder and is liquid-cooled. It delivers 115 HP at 8,700 rpm and 105 Nm of torque at 6,700 rpm. In addition, its ABS system is supplied by Continental and provides a high level of safety during heavy braking. An ideal motorcycle for long journeys and adventures in style and comfort.
The best of both worlds. Surely the sport-tourer par excellence of 2024. The Suzuki GSX-S1000GX did not go unnoticed at the last EICMA, both for its design and its technical data. The engine is the well-known 999 cc inline four-cylinder four-stroke engine that delivers 152 HP and 106 Nm of torque at 9,250 rpm. With regard to its aesthetics, it changes completely with the installation of the side cases and stands out with its futuristic front with a double vertical headlight. Whether for touring or long trips, this new Suzuki has come to the market with the intention of reviving a segment that is being taken over by trail bikes.
The successful Yamaha MT 09 could not be missed this list. The Japanese naked bike has been updated for 2024 with a new design, but also with technology. It keeps intact its three-cylinder engine CP3, which puts out 119 HP and a maximum torque of 93 Nm, but it does change its headlight with a full-LED set inside a redesigned cover. It stands out for its great maneuverability thanks to its chassis, geometry and final weight of 416 lbs. A light and fun bike that is capable for any twisty cornering route, but also for short trips even with a passenger.
