UK motorcycle buyers will be spoilt for choice this year, due to the vast nature of bike manufacturers’ latest designs and models taking to the road. This year will see some of the most innovative bikes in history being released for riders, many of which are either fully electric or hybrid, but which is the best of the new motorcycles?
Nonetheless, Bikesure has picked out the top ten bikes to get excited about in 2021:
Aprilia Tuono 660
Perhaps Aprilia’s most exciting bike to come in some time are the 660’s. With the RS sports bike having already been released in parts of the world this middleweight sports bike is set to take some beating as the best looking bike in 2021. Whilst this version will have slightly less horsepower, sitting at 95 horsepower, the ergonomics make this bike a must have for daily riders.
Ducati Multistrada V4
Ducati have once again pulled out a beauty in the Multistrada V4. Available in three different specifications: the V4, V4 S Sport and the V4 S. It has already landed at dealers and is available now. No matter which model you choose to go for you are guaranteed a whopping 170bhp V4 engine, complete with a range of core electronics, ergonomics and an incredibly light aluminium monocoque frame.
When it comes to off-road bikes they don’t come any better than the YZ and yet somehow Yamaha have managed to improve on near perfection with the YZ250F. With a fairly comprehensive overhaul the YZ250F is complete with a new muffler and intake system to dramatically improve both the top and mid-range end, along with the Yamaha Power Tuner App to adjust the engine mapping no matter where you are or what time it is.
Complete with new body work, a more powerful engine and an overhaul of the suspension system, Kawasaki have made some impressive changes to this superbike. With help from the Kawasaki Racing Team the ZX-10R is set to be one of the greatest superbikes in Kawasaki’s history.
Triumph Trident 660
Triumph may have created the ultimate Triple with the Trident 660. They say the Trident’s engine has a 80 horsepower and 47 lb-ft of torque and has more bottom-end torque than the Street Triple S, perfect for daily riders.
Harley-Davidson Pan America
For those wondering yes the Harley-Davidson Pan America was due to be released in 2020, but was pushed back to 2021 during the pandemic, but you know what they say good things come to those who wait and boy did Harley-Davidson deliver. With an all new engine platform, and moving the world’s most iconic motorcycle brand off the asphalt and into the dirt, this could be one of the biggest sellers of the year.
Yamaha Tenere 700
This lightweight adventure bike with durability and reliability is perfect for adventure riders. This 689cc two-cylinder engine, comes with special optimised transmission for essential control and balance is built to master a wide range of riding conditions on the dirt of asphalt.
If you’ve ditched using public transport to get to work or for any kind of travel, then the Honda NC750X may just be the motorcycle for you. This bike is already extremely popular among experienced riders, yet this bike is perfect for those first-time buyers who are looking for a little extra CC than their scooter could ever produce.
Energica Eva Ribelle RS
Energica are perhaps one of if not the most well known manufacturers who create stunning electric motorcycles. But what makes the naked version any greater than the sports version? With outstanding comfort and usability thrown into the mix you feel like your on a premier E-motorsport series bike on your daily commute.
The new R18 cruiser is first of all a dream to look at. But it’s not just fantastic aesthetically, because BMW have included a boxer engine which also has the most displacement ever among their range of bikes. The two-cylinder machine has a maximum torque of 158 and 91 horsepower to boot and BMW claim it ‘combines its core tradition with modern technology’ for this outstanding cruiser.
