Motorcycle.com Best of 2010 Awards


Now in its second year, our MOBO awards selections process gives us the chance to reflect on the year that was. And for 2010, the spotlights were generally shining on European manufacturers which continued to pump out desirable product while most Japanese OEMs crawled into a hole to wait out the near-global recession.

Brands like Aprilia, BMW, Ducati and Triumph haven't slowed the launching of new models, and this forging ahead in the midst of a storm has resulted in gains of market share. It's also provided us with several interesting new bikes to ride. Perhaps most interesting of all are the bikes in the paradigm-shifting electric motorcycle movement that's rapidly gathering momentum. Progress in this category will come quickly as new technology takes great leaps forward.

Although the two-wheel market isn't what it once was, this is nevertheless a fascinating era in the evolution of motorcycling. The best motorcycles and machinery of 2010 are seen at the link below.

I try to keep all my comments positive but I feel compelled to "think out loud" here. Please keep in mind that this is just my opinion. The BMW R1200GS has always looked the part but I can just imagine the tendon stretching that would take place taking a 500 lb. motorcycle off road on anything more serious than a fire road. Great touring bike though. That being said, Ghaston Rahier (5'2" tall Belgian World Motocross Champion) won the Paris Dakar on a stripped down version but then that was Ghaston Rahier.
