Tear up the road on the new 2010 Honda VFR 1200F ($TBA; Spring 2010). Expected to get an official intro at the Tokyo Motor Show, the 1200F boasts a 1,237cc liquid-cooled V4 engine good for 172 hp, impressively-sculpted body panels sitting atop a vacuum-molded cast aluminum chassis, Throttle By Wire for increased throttle response, an optional Dual Clutch Automatic Transmission with paddle-style shifters, and a next-generation shaft drive system. We'd recommend ditching the all-black outfit of the rider above, however, lest you be attacked by a confused group of other bike-riding ninjas.
If you prefer your motorcycles to look like something out of a futuristic bikers from hell story, the 2010 Triumph Rocket III Roadster ($TBA) is for you. Available in all of one color — we'll let you guess which one — the Rocket III boasts the line's most powerful engine yet, a 2.3 liter three-cylinder beast good for 146 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque. Add in Brembo brakes with ABS, a set of 43-millimeter upside-down forks, twin Kayaba shocks, and traffic-stopping looks, and you've got one helluva ride.
