Paris Motorcycle Show - Odds and Ends

Although there were several "new" motorcycles at the Mondial du Deux Roues at Paris, I'm running out of photos of these new motorcycles (and I'm running out of steam). Suzuki had their ER-6 N, Yamaha's R6, Aprilia's Tuono R, Triumph's Daytona Triple and several others that I'm forgetting.

So, I'm concluding the reporting from Paris with these odds and ends, photos that did not merit a dedicated article, but still nice to see:


Austrian motorcycle manufacturer, KTM, showed their recently released Super Enduro motorcycle. Together with BMW's HP2, they form the two heavy-weight enduro motorcycles. It sure would be nice to see both of them compete in the Dakar race...

German accessory manufacturer, Touratech, showed their version of the popular BMW R1200GS, the Desierto. Basically, it's a R1200GS with almost anything Touratech produces bolted on.

Yamaha showed their WR450F-2Trac "Ready to Race" rally motorcycle. This is the famous two wheel drive motorcycle that has participated in two Dakar races (and won it's category). This is the ready to race version, ie, buy it, and race it without any modifications.

showed some strange contraption. It looked very much like a very basic training motorcycle...

Mini Chopper

Here's a nice motorcycle for those with a) money and b) kids.

Dutch GPS manufacturer, TomTom, showed its dedicated motorcycle GPS, the TomTom Rider. More on than hopefully shortly. This GPS has been built specifically for motorcycles, and features Bluetooth, telephone communications, touch screen etc.

and that concludes my reporting on the Paris Motorcycle show. Next show is Tokyo (which I will not attend) followed by the Milan EICMA in November (which I probably will attend).

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did....
