Here top 10 most good upcoming looking bikes in 2021.

 All right so we already looked at top10bikes that i rode last year in 2020 and there's a link to that video in the description in case you haven't seen it already but what about 2021 the riding season is not too far off now and there have been some incredible looking bikes announced over the last few months so in a rough order of personal levels of anticipation here are the 10 i'm looking forward to the most but before we get started if you're new here and you want to see the first rides and reviews of these bikes as soon as they go live then please do make sure you hit subscribe. let's with top10bikes.


Acbiker : so there's nothing massively in this top10bikes about the urban gs for 2021 but it's a bike i've been wanting to ride for ages and in this new 40th anniversary paint job i think it just looks absolutely spot-on bmw issued this black and yellow scheme across all of their gs models to celebrate 40 years since the original r80 gs and although it looks decent on the more modern bikes like the 1250 i think that the r90 really suits it and the specs and levels of tech are a lot closer to what you'd expect from a bike of 40 years in age.

 I really rated the standard r90 when i borrowed it last year and it was that simplicity that was part of its appeal to me so i can't see this being anything other than loads of fun to ride and i reckon in this color scheme it's the best looking retro bike you can buy in 2021 ducati made some huge changes to the monster for the new model year with a completely different aesthetic and much to the dismay of some ducati traditionalists a cast aluminium frame instead of the iconic steel trellis of the versions that came before it and while on the one hand i can sympathize with that point of view ultimately i reckon it was the right decision because they need to keep pace with the performance of other modern nakeds like the incredible ktm 890 dew car and to do that they had to put the monster on a big diet it's much closer on paper now to the ktm and the only thing i didn't love about that bike when i borrowed it last year was the looks that's not to say they're bad it's just not to my taste so with the combination of much improved performance and ducati's abilities in the styling department could the monster offer the best of both worlds.

i can't wait to find out another italian beauty comes in the form of aprilia's sporty middleweight the rs660 i've been waiting to ride this for absolutely ages as it was first announced at ikema in 2019 where i saw it in the flesh and i absolutely loved it there have been a few reviews and first rides since it was launched to the press at the end of last year but for us mere youtubers it looks like it'll be in dealers in the next couple of months but however i get hold of one i really hope i'm not disappointed because it looks like the perfect sports bike for the road on paper it gets all of the electronics that you'd expect on a more premium superbike a nice level of spec in terms of suspension and braking is pretty lightweight the riding position looks comfortable but sporty and with 100 horsepower produced by its 270 parallel twin i reckon that's around the sweet spot for some decent thrills without getting yourself in trouble another bike that's been a long time in the making is harley's new adventure bike the pan america this was also shown at ikemo in 2019.

 we still don't have the full exact specs and pricing as they're set to be announced on monday the 22nd of feb so yes they're taking their time with it but i still really appreciate that harley are taking a big gamble and going right the way outside of their lane in terms of both the genre of bike but also its design the 1250cc revolution max engine at the heart of it is much more modern than their other engines being liquid cooled and the initial specs look pretty good power is expected to be competitive with the r1250 gs from bmw which of course is the benchmark in this category the looks are certainly divisive but i'd rather see something distinctive like this than a copy of the beamer or a ktm but the question still remains can the company that's predominantly made cruisers for so long realistically make a competitive adventure bike hopefully i'll be able to swing a leg over one this year and find out now you could flip that question on its head with the r18 can the makers of the gs deliver a big cruiser that can mix it with harley on their own turf.

 i've been lucky enough to ride the r18 first edition already and it's certainly a good effort although perhaps my favorite thing about it is that it doesn't try to be a harley it's a pumped up stretched out boxer and for me that's way better than making a cheesy tribute of a cruiser the only thing is the first edition is pretty bare bones there's not much in terms of wind protection or technological creature comforts so you're not realistically going to be doing proper big distances on it but at the same time it's super heavy at 345 kilograms even in this basically naked form so if you want to do short sharp blasts you might be better off with something a little more agile like a triumph bobber or indian scout that's why i'm looking forward to the r18 classic so much it's equipped with a screen and cruise control both of which turn it into a bike that suits for me the true purpose of a massive 1.8 liter bike like this they're small tweaks but i think they'll transform it it feels like honda have gone down the same route as well in that they've built a cruiser that isn't just a knockoff of harley or indian but one that's truly a honda in its image and technology it's really quite muted and utilitarian in the same way that the rebel 500 is and i like that about it it's like an anti-cruiser without even the thought of a single tiny bit of chrome and while the big american twins are fairly traditional in their designs the 1100 rebel uses the parallel twin from the africa twin albeit with a bit of a retune and even has the option of a dual clutch transmission which effectively gives you an automatic cruiser i loved this engine and gearbox in the africa twin adventure sports and can't wait to find out how it translates to the cruiser format now not many bikes are getting a massive power boost at the moment with euro 5 emissions regulations taking widespread effect at the beginning of this year that's forced manufacturers to update.

 their engines primarily to run cleaner but there are a few exceptions and the moto guzzi v7 is one of them i loved this bike when i rode it a couple of years back but it has to be said versus other retros its longitudinally mounted 744cc v twin was starting to look a little underpowered then motorgutsu made the v85tt adventure bike with a bigger more powerful version of basically the same engine and it only had to be a matter of time before it made its way down into their road focus bikes both the v9 and the v7 receive the 853 cc twin and although they don't get the full 80 horsepower of the v85 65 horsepower peak is still a big increase over the 50ish of the previous v7 it's a fairly light bike compared to something like the triumph street twin and now way more powerful than the 47 horsepower royal enfield interceptor so i reckon it'll make for one of the best if not the best mid-capacity retros on the market that said triumph have teased an update to the bonneville lineup this week with the full announcement due on the 23rd of feb i'll be heading up to the factory to see them in the flesh beforehand so obviously if you want to see that video as soon as it goes live then do subscribe if you're not already it's a super short teaser video but you can see a new street twin with some new hardware visible a bobber speedmaster and the t100 and t120 must be in there too now i'm not expecting a massive revolution for this year probably just some incremental tweaks and euro 5 compliance but as a street twin owner and a big fan of this line of bikes i hope they surprised me and either way i'll certainly enjoy taking them for a spin to see how they compare to my own trusty first gen bike also from triumph another bike that bucks the euro 5 trend with a big power boost is the speed triple 1200 rs which went from just under 150 horsepower to 180 which almost puts it in the super naked category at the same time they've managed to shed 10 kilograms and move the mass lower with a new underslung exhaust and of course it retains the top-notch brakes suspension and electronics of the previous generation with even a couple of enhancements like a new dash and keyless filler cap honestly i think it will be one of those bikes that's far more capable than i am by quite a significant margin especially on the road but that's still not going to stop me it looks incredible it sounds great even with the stock pipe and it ought to be absolutely rapid so i'd be mad to pass it up but i have to say the bike that i've been looking forward to the most is the new ducati multistrada v4 i'm absolutely desperate to get my hands on one yes it's the most powerful bike on the adventure market now and it has the specs chassis and equipment to match but it's also super high tech and whether it's this bike the ktm super adventure or the bmw r1250rt i just have to test out adaptive cruise control on a bike sometime soon i've always thought it was an incredibly useful feature when i've used it in cars so i want to know how it translates to two wheels and whether it can truly ease the monotony of those longer motorway stints the other two bikes look decent but the ducati has the most comprehensive system with a rear-facing radar that does blind spot detection as well and besides it's red and it's a ducati and that's why it rounds off the bikes i'm most looking forward to riding this year i can't wait to get stuck in over the next couple of months but as always i'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below which of these bikes would you like to see on the channel and if there are any i've missed i'll certainly add them to my list and of course if you're new here and you want to see more videos like this hit subscribe and i'll catch you next time you
