Nothing Special !!

BEST OF EICMA 2010

I have been browsing the net the past 2 days, reading all posts and news coverage of EICMA, i was also following Facebook posts by a couple of friends who are attending the exhibition but unfortunately -apart from the EICMA girls – this year exhibition had nothing special.

It’s more of a scooter exhibition than a motorcycle exhibition, most of the bikes at EICMA were either a different color version of last year models or just face lifted 2010 motorcycles.

Most of the manufacturers had a couple of scooters on display, but the chatter was mostly on BMW scooters the C 600 Sport and the C 650 GT plus concept C and concept E. Aprilia also introduced 2 new scooters, the SRV 850 and the SR Motard which comes in either 2-stroke 50cc or a 4-stroke 125cc. but the most radical designs came from Vespa.

There must be good reason for BMW to go back to the scooter market, is it the gas prices, is it the bad city traffic, or its just a trend that’s becoming a cult ?

Note: the video above is from last year as i couldn’t find any good ones of this year.
