Progressive Motorcycle Show

A little late to the party but here are some photos from the Progressive Motorcycle Show at Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan. By far the most impressive bike I sat on was the new Yamaha R1-M. Very comfortable, loaded with technology, and a serious S1000RR competitor. Speaking of which, the S1000RR refresh was the most disappointing of them all. Somehow the bike looks more bloated, took the asymmetrical headlamps and made them even uglier. The exhaust gained in size and barely any new technology from 5 years ago. Come on BMW it’s not 2010 anymore! The competition has caught up and Yamaha looks as if they’re over taking you! Though my heart still lies with the Ducati 1199 Panigale S Dark Stealth.
