EICMA 2010 Opens Next Week

Milan's annual international motorcycle show EICMA 2010 opens next week and runs from Tuesday, November 2nd, to Sunday, November 7th. The first two days (2nd-3rd of November) are for press and trade visitors so you would need a special pass. The remaining days are general admission which costs € 18 or € 12 after 6pm.

CR&S will be there and on this year's stand you can expect to see a selection of production-ready DUU models as well as a display of VUNs.

It will be interesting to compare the DUU with Ducati's Diavel. Both bikes are new, Italian and are trying to define a new market niche, which is, a muscular cruiser style machine with good handling and a focus on technology over bling. MV Augusta have said that they will have a small, closed stand to display their new 675cc triple. I'm hoping for better things from the Electric Motorcycle pioneers this year. EICMA 2010 will have a special pavilion called Green Planet giving some focus to zero emission motorcycles.

It looks like there will be enough new and interesting things to justify me going this year. Last year I wrote this Blog article with information about EICMA and how to get there. You should check it out if you are planning on going, specially if it's your first time.
