Nine incredible bikes we can't wait to ride

We know they're on the way. And we can't wait.

WE can't remember a year with more new bike launches than this one.

Visordown has already tested 35 new models for 2017. And it's only the start of April.

Okay, so new Euro4 emission limits might have something to do with it, but the compulsion to meet them has encouraged model development, which we like. 

And it hasn't finished. A quick look through our news stories from last autumn's bikes shows reminded us there are loads of machines that we know are on the way and cannot wait to ride. 

Here, in no particular order, are nine, starting with...

Yamaha T7

We saw it in spy shots a year ago. Then Yamaha revealed it as the concept pictured above at the Milan show in November

Inspired by the XT-660Z Ténéré but powered by the parallel-twin plant from the MT-07, the T7 looks every bit the rally-adventure off-road weapon.

Developed by Yamaha's official rally team, it's got an aluminium fuel tank, four-projector LED headlights, a carbon fairing and skid plate and a custom made Akrapovič exhaust.

It will be in production by 2019, Yamaha said. Get a move on, chaps.
