The Ducati Panigale V4: “Most Beautiful At EICMA”
The Most Beautiful Motorcycle At EICMA Was The Ducati Panigale V4
The prize for the Most Beautiful Motorcycle At EICMA has just been awarded to the brand new Ducati Panigale V4. The prestigious title is awarded to the motorcycle that most impressed motorcycle fans at the Milan festival, and it’s absolutely no surprise that an Italian motorcycle got the top honors at an Italian festival. Looking back, Ducati have actually won the very same award for the last three years, with the Scrambler and SuperSport models also clinching the win in previous shows. And funnily enough, the last three Ducati wins were motorcycles designed by Ducati’s Julien Clement.
In First Place: The Ducati Panigale V4 (Surprise, Surprise)
So, if you feel like making a bet on what motorcycle will be voted as the Most Beautiful at next year’s EICMA, get in touch with Ducati and see what young Mr. Clement is currently working on, and put down a substantial amount of cash. A bet on a Julien Clement Ducati seems like a safe bet indeed. Three wins a row ain’t bad, and in all honesty, Ducati deserve the victories. The Scrambler was revolutionary when it first came on the scene. The SuperSport was a triumph of design and engineering. Now, we have the next step in the evolution of the legendary Panigale platform: the Ducati Panigale V4.
It’s hardly a surprise that the Ducati managed to claim the top award, but the runners up list is even more interesting if you wanted our opinion. So, without further ado, these are the bikes that impressed the crowd, but didn’t quite measure up. Following the Ducati Panigale V4, we have in second place:
#2 – The 2018 MV Agusta Dragster RR
Typically, we’ve got another Italian in second place. The 2018 MV Agusta Dragster RR is quite easy on the eyes, but we guess it was probably a little too busy looking to clinch the win. Even so, it’s a pretty sexy looking machine that we can’t wait to ride in the future.
#3 – The 2018 Honda CB1000R
The 2018 Honda CB1000R might be a bit of an opinion divider. Not everyone was as impressed with this interesting design as we were, but even so, it’s a great looking motorcycle. Yeah, it’s probably not as appetizing as the flat tracker concept we saw last year, but man, it’ll do.
#4 – The 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob
We were a little puzzled by the Harley-Davidson Fat Bob making the list. It’s an okay looking motorcycle. I guess it must be a matter of opinion here, because we think this one is kind of ugly when compared with a lot of other motorcycles that were unveiled. But oh well, that’s what you get from a public vote, eh?
#5 – The Fantic Motor Cabellero Scrambler 500
In at number five, we’ve got the Fantic Motor Cabellero Scrambler 500. Now, this is a stunning looking motorcycle. It might have only come in at number 5, but since it’s not from one of the big companies, we should be thankful that it managed to generate enough interest to come in fifth place. This is what a proper scrambler should look like.
