Honda CRF250L Rally
  • Honda CRF250L Rally
  • The Honda CRF250L Rally is one of two Hondas that made the list and gets its inspiration from the factory CRF450 Rally that Team HRC uses to take on the iconic Dakar Rally. The motorcycle is an adventure bike that can handle both off-roading and touring needs with long-travel suspension, ABS brakes, and good wind protection from the rally-type "floating" screen. The CRF250L Rally will go on sale in March of 2017.

Honda X-ADV Scooter
  • Honda X-ADV Scooter
  • The Honda X-ADV has the styling of an adventure motorcycle, but, thanks to its compact size, the usability and practicality of a scooter. Unlike those pesky mopeds that crowd busy streets, the X-ADV has a large and powerful 745cc engine and a user-friendly dual-clutch transmission, making it ideal for city dwellers.

Yamaha Teneré T7

  • With the Ténéré T7 Concept, Yamaha was inspired by the iconic XT600Z Ténéré that was unveiled 33 years ago. The motorcycle, while still a concept, is fully functional and balances between on- and off-road usability. The concept features an all-new chassis that features Yamaha's 700-cc twin from the FZ-07, an aluminum fuel tank, a custom exhaust from Akrapovič, and a front suspension system from KYB. Don't be surprised if Yamaha decides to build a production version.

  • Yamaha teamed up with famed Italian tuner Abarth to create the stunning XSR900 that pays homage to the cafe racers from the '60s. The motorcycle features lightweight carbon bodywork that provides contrast with the white fuel tank, while the solo seat and low handlebars give the bike a sporty feel. In line with the sporty seating position, the motorcycle is fitted with a three-cylinder, 850-cc engine with a full exhaust system from Akrapovič.

  • With the GSX250R, Suzuki adds an entry-level sportbike to its lengthy list of beginner-friendly motorcycles. The motorcycle's two-cylinder engine puts out 24 horsepower and 17 pound-feet of torque. With sporty looks and a manageable amount of power, it's the perfect beginner sport bike or economical yet sporty commuter.

Suzuki DL250 V-Strom
  • Suzuki DL250 V-Strom
  • The Suzuki DL250 V-Strom is another addition to the manufacturer's adventure lineup. Following the general theme of the V-Strom 650 and 1000, the 248cc-powered motorcycle shares many of the same features, like the integrated luggage rack, as the larger bikes. Its smaller engine and lower price will help it appeal to newbies who want an adventure bike to start out on.

Kawasaki Versys-X 300
  • Kawasaki Versys-X 300
  • The Kawasaki Versys-X 300 is what happens when you combines the engine from the Ninja 300 with the styling and attitude of the Versys. The adventure motorcycle stays true to the segment with an upright riding position, a large windshield, and long-travel suspension. More importantly, it has a low seat height and should be relatively economical to buy and run.

Ducati 1299 Superleggera
  • Ducati 1299 Superleggera
  • As Duacti puts it, the 1299 Superleggera is the first road-legal road bike with a carbon fiber frame, subframe, and swingarm. And the wheels are made out of the lightweight material, as well. Only 500 units of the motorcycle will be made and all are powered by a 215-horsepower Desmodromic engine, which the manufacturer claims is the most powerful twin-cylinder motor ever made. The 1299 Superleggera is clearly a very special motorcycle.

  • Ducati revealed its playful side in Milan with the Scrambler Desert Sled. As its name implies, the motorcycle is a nod towards the kind of bikes that a previous generation blasted around the desert on. Inspired by those machines, the Scrambler Desert Sled comes with upgraded suspension, knobby tires, a bash plate protecting the engine, and spoked wheels. The enduro-style bike is powered by a 803-cc twin and does the machines from the 1960s and 70s proud.

Just like its siblings, the Monster 797 features the same aggressive styling and exposed trellis frame, but is fitted with the same 803-cc twin that powers the Scrambler. In the 797, it cranks out 75 horsepower.
