Developed around the same 803cc air-cooled engine found in the Scrambler, the new Ducati 797 weighs in at 425 lb. and produces a claimed 75 hp.
Suspension includes a non-adjustable, 43mm Kayaba fork and Sachs shock with adjustable spring preload and rebound damping. Brakes are nearly the same as on the Monster 821, with Brembo M4.32 calipers biting on 320mm Brembo discs up front.
Seat height is 31.7 inches, which is good for shorter riders. Technically, the 821's seat is still lower though, as that bike has an adjustable seat that can be dropped to just 30.9 inches.

Yamaha MWT-9 is a three-wheeled motorcycle with two leanable front wheels, will be hitting the production line this year. First unveiled at the Tokyo motor show last year as the LMW-MWT-9, the MWT-9 uses the engine from the MT-09, but with the addition of independently sprung twin-front wheels that lean when the rider turns the handlebars.
Claiming to provide “exceptional cornering performance” due to the contact footprint at the front end, the MWT-9’s spread front wheel profile enhances cornering ability and bank angle, according to Yamaha.
According to a Yamaha press release, the MWT-9 concept model “proposes a new type of category in the realm of sport riding. Under a development concept of a “Cornering Master,” the MWT-9 mounts a three-cylinder 850 cc engine on a seamless and dynamically styled body … the front suspension forks enable a high level of performance that lets the rider go freely through twisty roads with ever-changing road surfaces and dotted with tight curves in succession.”

Kawasaki have just taken the wraps of the new 2017 Kawasaki Z1000SX, an update to their sport naked literbike Z1000. In addition to gaining a few letters on the name, the big news here is the addition of an Intertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which allows for a far greater range of electronic aides including a more precise traction control system and cornering ABS. It also gets a slipper clutch to both lighten clutch pull and reduce back-torque on downshifts, and the ECU gets new settings to help it meet Euro4 compliance.
The Z1000SX also gets a new fairing, which walks the looks back a little bit from that crazy face they gave it in 2012, as well as a new double-bubble shaped and taller windscreen, wider and thicker padded seat, and all LED lighting system that Kawasaki claims is 40% brighter.
The instrument panel is also new, featuring a large analog tach and LCD screen which contains info on gear position, shift light, and tach needle that glows from white to red as a shift indicator. Kawasaki also revised the pannier system as the current model's can be a little finicky to get on and off.
