Although there are fewer participants in the 2010 International Motorcycle Show, many of your favorite motorcycle brands will be on display. Below is a list of motorcycles you can expect to see.
It has been three years since the folks at Ducati in Italy said they intended to produce three new models per year for the next three years. So far, the company followed up on its promise, with bikes like the Hypermotard, Streetfighter, Desmosedici RR, 848, 1198 and Monster 1100. See what they have for 2010 at the International Motorcycle Show stop closest to you!
