Ducati Streetfighter wins ‘most beautiful bike’ poll at the EICMA


The Ducati Streetfighter was declared 'most beautiful' at this year's EICMA show

The hulking, brutally aggressive looking Ducati Streetfighter has won Motociclismo’s ‘most beautiful bike’ poll at the EICMA, which concluded yesterday. The MV Agusta Brutale 1078RR, which won last year’s poll, came in at third place this year.

The Ducati Streetfighter took first place with 25.31% votes, followed by the Aprilia RSV4 Factory in second place, with 22.01% votes and the MV Agusta Brutale 1078RR in third place, with 12.45%.

For us, the surprises are the KTM RC8 (only 3.32% votes in its favour), the Harley-Davidon XR1200 (only 2.08%) and the Benelli Due 756 (only 0.66%). What’s also surprising is that bikes like the BMW K1300R, the Ducati 1198 and Monster 1100, and the Moto Morini Scrambler 1200 don’t seem to be on the list at all…
