Catalog: Intermot 2004
Athletes, cruisers, naked bikes ?? Clear the stage for the new motorcycles to be had in the coming year.
After Intermot 2004, the international motorcycle fair of that year, one thing was as clear as a sunny autumn day: The most beautiful and spectacular new motorcycles are large naked bikes that deliberately do not follow the classic design line. Three new super sporty 600s from Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha and the new Suzuki GSX-R 1000 can also please, but the fireworks of creativity and individuality that a KTM 990 RC8 Venom or a Yamaha MT-01 with their fellow competitors Triumph Speed Triple, BMW K 1200 R, Moto Guzzi Griso, B.enelli TnT sport, they are not equal in luminosity. In addition to these machines, which almost inevitably have to be expensive, there is also the middle and entry-level class

are now on the following pages.

As a fun bike suitable for everyday use, Aprilia brings the completely redesigned-

Bimota db 5
Bimota db ?? this has been a tradition since 1985. In the form of the
db 5 it will be continued convincingly. How it is
heard, an air-cooled Ducati-V2 drives the noble country-
street athletes, the 1000 with double ignition and
92 hp. It sits in one of the most beautiful chassis there is. The swing arm mounting and suspension strut are held in milled aluminum profiles, and the front section is supported by a tubular space frame. The rocker also consists of a composite tube and milled parts. The finest equipment and a skin-tight cladding complete the, like all Bimotas, extremely expensive and sinful db 5.

K 1200 S
Do you have to write something about the BMW K 1200 S? Perhaps
so much: it is not only the most powerful BMW that has been built to date. With their innovative chassis and that from scratch
engineered, 167 hp engine, it gave the big sport touring class a powerful boost. When it comes to wind-

The CityX replaces both previous Neuner models and

Sign of the city crosser: wide tubular handlebar, hand-
protectors and a bench two centimeters higher. There is also translucent plastic for the cockpit cladding and the dummy tank. With the 12 models from 2005, the CityX shares the upside-down fork with 43 lower tubes in the unconventional chassis: bridge frame as tank, swing arm as engine oil reservoir and internal disc brake at the front. This works, as the comparison test in MOTORRAD 20/2004 shows.

620 Multistrada / Dark
The new Multistrada 620 is intended for all those who aim high on narrow streets but have to keep costs low. With the tried and tested air-cooled two-valve engine, with a two-arm swing arm instead of the single-arm swing arm of the 1000 series and with double-piston floating calipers for the two 300 series brake discs at the front. The cockpit works without an on-board computer. The 620 Dark is available in a matt black finish and thanks to the 320 single-disc brake in the front wheel, it is even cheaper. Both models have a clutch mechanism,
which significantly reduces hand strength and is easy for beginners.

Not a bargain, but something to indulge in. The Multistrada 1000 S is equipped with extremely fine Öhlins spring elements that
