As has become the custom, once a year, at the end of a major European motorcycle show, in this case Intermot, the Motorcycle Design Association awards the best motorcycle design award to one manufacturer.
Five design categories receive a nomination, and the best one receives the main award.
Apart from the 5 categories above, one motorcycle receives the top award, in this case it was the Yamaha MT-01 ! The Trophy is selected in secret by 100 motorcycle designers after press day.
There's one thing I can not understand... how come the Yamaha MT-01 motorcycle was selected 2nd in the large capacity motorcycles category, and still wins the general design award ?? Something smells in the state of Demark...
