10 Cool Motorcycles to Look Forward to in 2019


– [Narrator] No only are
motorbike engines constantly getting better and more powerful, but bike technology and design are always adapting and evolving. The latest models always manage to bring a new level of
innovation to the road. This is Glen, and today we’re taking you through 10 of the coolest motorcycles you can buy in 2019. (techno music) – [Announcer] Number 10 – [Glen] Priding itself as
the new american standard, the Indian FTR 1200 S
launched late last year. With it’s race inspired
design and iconic style the 1200 S is as much fun to look at as it is to ride. The bike capitalizes on one of the most recent motorcycle trends on Instagram, the revival of flat track racing which until now, no
manufacturer had capitalized on through a street legal factory option. The 1200 S has a liquid-cooled 1203cc 60 degree V-twin engine and a tubular steel trellis frame, for a total dry weight of 489 pounds. The street tracker aesthetic is helped along by an 18 inch 10 spoke wheel in back and an 19 inch 10 spoke upfront with a tread pattern that recalls the bikes flat track genesis. Indian claims it makes a 120 horsepower at 8250 rpm and 85 foot-pounds
of torque at 6000 rpm. Pricing for this model
starts out at $15,499. – [Announcer] Number nine. – [Glen] The blacked out design of the Indian Chief Dark Horse
really makes a statement. Black smoke paint covers everything from the tip of the
heavily valid front fender to the 16 inch Wheels,
handlebar and controls, bodywork and right back
to the rear fender tip. Essentially only the
edges of the cylinder fins are spared the blackout treatment. Using a Thunder Stroke 111
CI air-cooled V-twin engine the bike delivers an exhilarating ride as the motor’s undersquare dimensions mean the engine is build for torque. Although it has a stripped-down style it still comes with key features like ABS, cruise control
and keyless ignition. Rear cylinder deactivation automatically shuts off the rear cylinder
when the bike is stopped for enhanced comfort
in slow moving traffic. As soon as you hit the throttle the rear cylinder seamlessly reactivates for full power. Prices for the Indian Chief
Dark Horse start at $18,499. – [Announcer] Number eight – [Glen] The Fat Bob offers
a more modern styling but it is still unmistakably
Harley Davidson. The bike is one of the few Dyna models that still made the crossover into the all new 2018 Softail lineup. The fenders are cut back to the bone with the yarmulke sized front fender and rear fender that just
barely catches the struts. For an unimpeded view of the rear hoop, a tapered P-pad joins the solo saddle for two-up capability, at least on paper. The bike also has the
tubular steel Softail frame, inverted forks for better handling and cast aluminum wheels with fat tires. The Fat Bob offers a modern interpretation of the classic headlight in a cell that uses a trapezoid shaped opening to house a set of powerful LED headlights. Combined with the massive torque of a Milwaukee-Eight 107 or
a 114 Big Twin engine, the Fat Bob is aiming to
shake-up the status quo. Pricing on this one will
run you around $17,000. – [Announcer] Number seven. – [Glen] Unveiled late last year the Black Arrow Husqvarna Svartpilen 701 draws inspiration from
the flat track scene. The jet-black color bike features sharp lines and geometric shapes. With a flat-topped 3.2 gallon fuel tank that flairs outward into two oval shapes bearing the 701 logo. The intension with the Svartpilen 701 was to strip away all unnecessary gimmicks and create a simple yet progressive mix of classic thinking and modern design. In the transition from
cafe racer to flat tracker the Svartpilen 701 gained a unique front headlight mask with an LED headlight, fork shrouds, seat, tail
section and handlebars to give it a more upright
and rowdy appearance. The engine is a 692.7cc SOHC
duel spark four valve single derived from the KTM 690 DUKE T. Pricing for this models starts at $12,000. – [Announcer] Number six – [Glen] With a curb weight 611 pounds and a fuel capacity of 5.3 gallons, the Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom was build for the highways and is ready to roll. It has custom styling
with a teardrop tank, parallel slash cut pipes, pinstripe wheels and engine fins. The engine itself delivers
ample roll-on power using a fuel injected 903cc V-twin engine. The Vulcan 900 is designed
with a tall front wheel, drag style chrome handlebars, but despite this appearance it still offers
a smooth, comfortable ride. That’s because the wide drag bars enable plenty of leverage from the low slung seat and forward mounted foot pegs complete the relaxed riding stance. The Vulcan is the most economical of the bikes so far,
coming in at just $8,499. With it’s sleek look, quality production and powerful ride, it’s hard to justify paying
more for another bike. – [Announcer] Number five. – [Glen] The Triumph Street
Scrambler offers fun easy riding and with 120 accessories,
is easy to personalize. It’s perfect for those looking
to do some off-road riding, as at the flick of a switch
the ABS and traction control can be turned off and on. This versatility is why it is earning such a phenomenal reputation worldwide. The technology hidden
within the Street Scrambler for example it’s new Road and Rain or torque assist clutch
for lighter lever pull makes it feel remarkably modern. These rider assist functions help bring a level of sophistication to the scrambler that increases it’s appeal to both new and returning
motorcycle riders. It’s 900cc liquid-cooled
engine was designed and tuned to deliver high torque, and it’s dry weight is just 437 pounds. Pricing for the Triumph Street
Scrambler starts at $11,000. – [Announcer] Number four. – [Glen] The V-Max is a cruiser motorcycle that’s been manufactured
by Yamaha since 1985. Known for it powerful 70 degree V4 engine, shaft drive and distinctive styling. The 2019 model was unveiled in October of last year and offers unique oxidized titanium coated, 52
millimeter front fork tubes and magnesium engine side covers. The 18 inch radial wheels
are particularly distinctive and the design almost make it look like two circular wood cutters
when at a standstill. The V-Max’s unrelenting power comes from a 1679cc liquid-cooled
65 degree V-four. A compact engine that
looks as powerful as it is. A lightweight aluminum chassis puts the engine low and forward
for mass centralization so the bike can handle both
curves and straightaways to perfection. In addition the V-Max
borrows liberally from advanced sport bike technologies so it features a slipper
clutch, wave style brake disks, ABS and complete suspension adjustability front and rear. Pricing on this one will
run you around $18,000. – [Announcer] Number three. – [Glen] Unveiled in 2018 the Honda CB1000R is a head-turner. From it’s round multi-chamber LED headlamp liberal use of metal and signature single-sided alloy swingarm, it offers a effortless cool factor that some of the other wilder
more aggressive bikes can’t. It feels every bit as good as it looks behind the handlebar too. Offering an ultra
polished riding experience that’s above others in it’s class. Just because it’s not as wild, doesn’t mean it has less power. And the CD1000R’s powerful
998cc DOHC four-cylinder engine definitely makes a powerful statement. It’s noticeably slimmer
than the previous model but that makes it feel more manageable. The bike also has a good distance between the handlebar and the
seat so although it’s a sporty bike it can be
ridden comfortably for hours. Whichever way it’s approached, aesthetics, emotions, performance, technology, the CB1000R is hard to ignore. Pricing for the standard
starts at $12,999. – [Announcer] Number two. – [Glen] The Ducati XDiavel labels itself as a Technocruiser, a bike that projects the concept of cruiser in the modern times. It’s long low and muscular shapes and technologically
gutting edge components really reinforced that futuristic vibe. However, their short and modern frame is still immediately recognizable as the classic Ducati trellis frame. There are also reverences
to past designs for example the headlight is a modern reinterpretation of that of the naked Ducati. The wheels Xdiavel are a work of art, especially the spin on the back wheel which is hypnotizing at times. The bike is power by the Ducati Testastertta DVT 1262 engine which produces a 152 horsepower and 93 foot-pounds of torque. It’s 40 degree lean
angle allows for dynamic performance and exiting riding. – [Announcer] Number one. – [Glen] The Confederate
FA-13 Combat Bomber is worlds apart from any of the
other bikes on our list. It’s a feast for the eyes and the soul. Made from 100% military spec billet and with a stealth-matte anodized finish. The Combat Bomber is driven
by a powerful V-twin engine. With an engine capacity of 2163cc providing a 160 foot-pounds of torque at a top speed of 160 miles per hour. The brown custom leather
seat gives the illusion that the rider is straddling some type of mechanical beast more than a motorbike. It feels alive. But such a rare animal
comes at a high price. With final five remaining
Confederate bikes up for sale, at $135,000 a piece. 2019 might have only just began but there’s plenty of reasons to think this will be the best year yet in motorcycle innovation. If you had the chance,
