2018 Motorbikes

So far 2018 is looking like a year of modern cafe racers, colour TFT dashes, LED lighting and cornering ABS upgrades, while the higher end bikes are getting up / down quickshifters and cornering lights.

Notable new motorbikes for 2018 include the stylish Honda CB125R, super desirable CB1000R, groundbreaking Yamaha NIKEN three wheeler, retro Kawasaki Z900RS Cafe and the new Honda Goldwing.

We know 2017 was a year of unprecedented change in the bike market as manufacturers dropped or modded their bikes to meet the new Euro 4 regulations but some of the models got a stay of execution under the "End of Series" loophole so there will a few more changes, swaps and drops to look out for this year. Let's have a look at what 2018 has in store!
