Despite a lackluster EICMA 2009, there were a couple of motorcycles that were interesting. Obviously the economic crisis has struck manufacturers, since many did not show up, or had a scaled down stand, or did not present any new models.

Apart from the selection already published in this site, here are some of the motorcycles that were of interest, but did not merit a separate article.

CR&S

CRS-DUU

Italian motorcycle builder CR&S make limited-run motorcycles, mostly cafe racers. They've made some interesting looking motorcycles, but none as interesting as their DUU.

CRS-DUU

DUU, which in the Italian dialect used in the Milan area means Two, and it's used to tell you that the naked motorcycle has two cylinders, two seats and two thousand cc.

CRS-DUU

CR&S married a European frame design with an American muscle-twin. The engine is the 1916 cc S&S X-Wedge engine.

CRS-DUU

The motorcycle is expected to sell for around €20,000 per unit. You can already see someone like Brad Pitt or the King of Jordan riding one.

BMW F800GS Touratech

BMW-F800GS-Touratech

On the Touratech stand you could see many of the accessories produced by Touratech, but you could also see a fully outfitted BMW F800GS motorcycle.

It looked like Touratech emptied out their not-so-thin catalog, and bolted everything on the BMW, making it Round The World ready.

Moto Guzzi

Moto-Guzzi-V12X

Italian Guzzi presented a concept motorcycle that looked good. It's unmistakably a Moto Guzzi, with the V-twin engine, but the styling looks a bit different, more modern then what you'd expect from Guzzi.

Moto-Guzzi-V12X

The V12X concept motorcycle is powered by a twin V90° engine with 1151 cc and 2 valves per cylinder. With a dry weight of 206 kgs and a 16 liter tank, it's not a lightweight.

Moto-Guzzi-V12X

LED lights, lots of brushed aluminium and carbon, the motorcycle looks ready for delivery, but it's still in concept stage.

GG

GG-Taurus

The Swiss made GG Taurus is a strange animal, but pretty cool. With its colors, it looks a bit like a cartoon character.

GG-Taurus

The trike prototype has a 4 cylinder 1293 cc engine developing 175 hp, enough power to blast away any quad.

GG-Taurus

The 397 kilos will not stop it from going 220 kph. They expect to sell it for around €38,500 ... not exactly cheap.
