Italian powerhouse Ducati hit MY with an all-new pair of Diavel models for the sport-naked sector: the Diavel and S. Both toe the family line as far as aesthetics are concerned, and they run the same Testastretta powerplant so the differences between the two essentially come down to the trim package and chassis features. Performance and safety go hand-in-hand with a number of top-shelf electronic goodies to help you keep all that power under control. The BMW S R was on the receiving end of a facelift ahead of the model year, and it carries that enhanced package right on into MY Yamaha recently rebranded its holdout U. FZ family with the MT moniker to match the markets around the world, and MY21 brings with it a ground-up rebuild for the existing MT

If you want a bike that looks modern, can go fast, is agile in the bends and which sacrifices some wind protection and luggage options to save weight then you probably want a naked bike. What is a naked motorbike? The Z H2 is new for and should tick a lot of boxes for a lot of people, mainly because it's derived from the excellent H2 SX SE sports tourer and makes use of the same supercharged engine. It's the clear choice for top end power, all day comfort and of course the supercharger soundtrack. For Kawasaki added the range topping Z H2 SE with fancy Showa Skyhook semi-active electronic suspension, the latest Brembo Stylema front calipers, Steel braided brake lines, green detailing on the engine panels, a gold finish to the fork and red detailing on the super charger. For Ducati whipped the fairing off the awesome Panigale V4 sports bike to produce the Streetfighter, which is also available as a cheaper version without the forged wheels or Ohlins electronic suspension. Compared to the Panigale it has a more relaxed riding position, comfier seat, slightly de-tuned engine optimised for the road and double wings either side which can generate 28 kg of downforce at mph.
The Best Naked Motorcycles of 2020
Today, their continued popularity means there is more choice and variety than ever. For some reason Suzuki are often latecomers to popular classes of bike; the reinvented V-Strom in being one example; the GSX-S super naked, first arriving only in an obvious second. And while it brings nothing new in either performance or technology, its tempting price, under-cutting all its Japanese rivals, makes it a welcome option.
Before sports bikes gained racer-replica bodywork, touring machines required weather-beating full fairings and even adventure machines donned screens, beaks and all manner of plastic add-ons, all bikes were naked. Today, though, naked is the term we apply to unfaired, upright, uncluttered but otherwise modern machines that appeal for their pure simplicity, light ease of use and reasonable versatility. Being unfettered and upright a naked is often both affordable and easy to ride; especially when it comes to smaller bikes for novices. A new benchmark in performance has brought with it a new benchmark in price, and with the older models in the category still packing serious punch it could be wise to go for a used machine instead. The top-spec Factory, with Ohlins, Brembos and more is as exotic and potent as nakeds get and was improved further in with the adoption of new semi-active suspension.
