Every year as temperatures drop and riding season winds down, the world’s largest motorcycle show converges in Milan to celebrate the freshest two-wheeled hardware.
EICMA — or Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo e Accessori — is a staggeringly in-depth cross-section of all things motorcycle-related, featuring everything from major manufacturer debuts to scrappy, innovative upstarts. The goods are spread over more than 3 million square feet of indoor and outdoor space, and the crowds are as palpably passionate about bikes as you can get.
The epic show celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, and features many of the concepts and production bikes you’ll see on your favorite roads and racetracks when they finally make their way Stateside. Here are a few of the bikes that captured our attention at EICMA 2014.
