Mondial Du Deux Roues Motorcycle Exhibition
Next week Saturday (29Sep2007) the doors will open to the public at the Paris Motorcycle (and bicycle) exhibition, the Mondial du Deux Roux Open link in a new window.

Held on alternating years with the German Intermot, this year it's the Paris show's turn. The show runs until October the 7th.

The event is held at the Paris Expo center at the "Porte de Versailles" Click for map. If you're coming on a motorcycle, parking is free.

Jonas Granberg and myself will be attending on the Friday (press day), so expect a large series of quick views and photos of the show during the day, an "almost life reporting".

What can we expect to see, apart from the armies of pretty girls and nicely chromed and buffed motorcycles, are the following new or updated motorcycles (maybe they'll be shown, maybe not... no promises):

Suzuki logo

Suzuki should be showing the new 2008 GSX-R-600 sports motorcycle, with improved (and much bigger) exhaust.

Kawasaki logo

Kawasaki will probably be showing their new version of their popular supersport motorcycle, the ZX-10R (Ninja).

They should be showing their new version of the VN 2000 Classic, with the new Euro 3 compliant exhaust and a couple of minor cosmetic changes.

Yamaha logo

The famed Tenere will make it's comeback. 25 years after it was first shown, the Tenere is back, this time on the Yamaha XT660.

Yamaha will be showing their new WR250X, a SuperMotard motorcycle.

Their supersport, the R6, will receive several internal changes (mostly technical), with not much change on the outside.

Yamaha will be releasing new small cc motorcycles, the primary one being the YZF R125, a 4 stroke, 4 valve motorcycle.

Honda logo

The new Honda CBR1000RR has already been exposed (by mistake?) in the USA, and will most probably been shown in Paris.

Honda might also show its new prototype the EVO6, though it has been announced for the Tokyo Motor Show next month.

BMW logo

Are we finally going to be seeing the expected F800GS, possible derivatives of their new F series, or will all new models be shown at EICMA?

Or are BMW planning other suprises for us (they've been known to spring surprises).

Ducati logo

I don't think there will be anything new from Ducati, since they have come out with several new models last year.

Aprilia logo

Aprilia will not be present at the show, since the Piaggio group are boycotting the exhibition (last time it was Ducati who did not attend).

KTM logo

KTM will probably show their car and quad, but don't expect much new.

Derbi logo

Sometimes they can come up with surprises, so who knows.

Harley-Davidson logo
Harley-Davidson / Buell

They rarely show anything new in Paris.

That about sums it up for the main manufacturers. If there's anything else we should be looking at, let us know, post a comment here.
