So what is your choice for bike of the year, based on what you have read or which you think is the prettiest or whatever you feel like. I hope these are all 2012 bkes. Honda CRF250L Real world 250 for cheap off roading. Honda NC700X will maybe get some argument with this but I think it is an interesting bike. Kawasaki 636 return of those 37cc i choose this but I am biased, though the Hondas are very interesing Triumph Street Triple R, I am not a fan but I am not that biased to leave it out. Aprillia Tuono V4, gorgeous for a naked and that engine sound... Triumph Tiger Explorer, not a bad looking chookie really. BMW Sertao, well priced Beemer dual sport. BMW k1600gt cruise missile barge. Harley Davidson Switchback, nice Dyna with removable bags and screen So what are your thoughts?
