    Not from round these parts.
    As per my normal format I'll withhold much of my blabbering commentary and just show you what I saw. As a quick summary the show overall was a lot smaller then in the past years with notably smaller displays, a lot less "free stuff" and many vendors decided to skip the show all together. BMW and Ducati were no where to be found, Suzuki only had 2 bikes that were actually available for sale in Thailand on display and Honda only had "big bikes" on display from a dealer that will not be open until mid April. Kawasaki...I expected more from a brand that is helping to develop the big bike market in Thailand. Yamaha was only on display in a tent outside along with the scooter accessories:dunno

    The good:
    Harley was there in their usual over the top way, KTM looked professional and well sorted, MV Augusta made an appearance and Triumph definitely brought their "A" game.

    Now picture time:

    A Vstrom! Sadly the Suzuki rep told me that there are no plans to sell this bike in Thailand any time soon.

    The 2 bikes that Suzuki was actually selling in Thailand. The GSXR 1000 and the super practical Hayabusa 1300

    Thanks for all the great pictures. I just came from the Minneapolis bike show and was also impressed with the new Honda 700. It feels really light and has a low center of gravity from what I could tell by sitting on it.

    I was all set to drool over the models and then I began to wonder if all of them were actually females.

    Jimo,
    Thanks glad you liked them. Hoping to get a test ride on the new Honda in the next month or so. The dealer said they would have them in stock in late April/ early May.


    You can usually pick out the real from the fake pretty quickly

    What was your general impression of the Honda NC700? How is the fit and finish? In Germany Honda sells this bike for 5.500 Euros (MSRP). That's an almost unbeatable price for a bike with ABS. I think, it can be a top seller if the quality is ok. Especially as there will be a new European driving licence next year, which will allow beginners to ride bikes with 48 hp.This offer really seems too good to be true. :)

    In a word, tight. Everthing seemed to line up right on that bike and was fitted togther very well. People talk about that bike being a "game changer" and if they can deliver it at a price under $9,000 USD it very well could be.

    Yeah there was some very nice eye candy to be found:evil

    Wow, the Bangkok Bike Festival just keeps getting bigger and better!

    While a few brands were noticeably missing, there were also some new brands making a first appearance as well as an ever growing list of vendors, so definitely worth a visit.

    Kunka is now selling MV Augusta in Thailand! Check out the stunning F4 RR:
    [​IMG]

    This one is already sold but you can put your name on a list and eventually get one for only 1.6 million Baht! [​IMG]
    They will also be selling the "regular" F4 for just 1.1 million and the Brutale in a few different flavors but I can't remember the prices.

    As reported earlier, Honda is FINALLY going to sell some big bikes in Thailand!
    [​IMG]

    The 1800cc Goldwing, aka, the Honda Land Yacht [​IMG] Expect to pay about a thousand baht per cc [​IMG]

    The CBR1000RR. NICE!
    [​IMG]

    Those stupid NC700 atrocities... [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The VFR1200 looks more like a spaceship than a motorcycle IMO...
    [​IMG]
    I'm really not happy with the way Honda has lost track of what made the original VFR 750 and 800 the top rated sport touring bikes for year after year after year...

    And there's the 250cc Honda dirtbike which isn't cheap, but I am told is top of the class in that category.
    [​IMG]

    In other exciting news, Royal Enfields are now available in Thailand!
    [​IMG]
    Pretty pricey for what you get... The 350cc Bullet above goes for 330k Baht, but the sales rep said something about having them assembled in Thailand in which case the price could be as low as 140k Baht.

    There is also the "Classic 500" which doesn't cost much more than the Bullet:
    [​IMG]

    Nicely blinged Kawasaki Z1000
    [​IMG]
    And Z1000 eye candy
    [​IMG]

    The KTM display was impressive- more and more models now available in Thailand-
    [​IMG]

    Love the styling of the KTM RC8R!
    [​IMG]

    Yamaha's new Super Tenere looks like a beast of an adventure bike!
    [​IMG]

    Yamaha pretty with FJR1300
    [​IMG]

    Aprilia RSV4 [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    There was A LOT to see and the place was mobbed! What a turnout! I must confess that I completely missed the Kawasaki, Suzuki and HD displays, so I had to head back the next day to continue exploring!

    Happy Trails!

    I lived in Thailand for a few years and loved it. That being said, I can't imagine riding any of those bikes in Bangkok. Total traffic nightmare.

    Anywhere outside the city in the rest of the country would be great.

    Yep!

    If the traffic doesn't get you the bent coppers will!

    I don't ride much in the Big Smoke- prefer to use the bikes to ESCAPE the city :clap
