EICMA has always been a source of excitement for riders and bike brand around the world. 

From the showcasing of new technology, to the increased options in sustainability and new machines debuted to the masses, the world’s largest motorcycle show continues to stun every year – and one of the more highly-anticipated events is when the good people of our industry crown a lucky unit as “the most beautiful bike” of the event. 

Any guess as to which down-and-dirty piece of pretty won the honors for 2022?
