Vintage motorcycle show in Downtown Vicksburg Saturday – The Vicksburg Post

Motorcycle enthusiasts know that a 1952 Vincent Rapide is one of the most sought-after vintage bikes.

What we saw at the EICMA show in 2019 is essentially what we’ll get when the motorcycle begins arriving at dealerships in select market in November 2021. It’s an evolution of the KTM 890 Adventure, according to Motorcycle News, but it stands out with a brand-specific design defined by more upright fairing and a single round LED headlight. It features a generous amount of ground clearance and skid plates that protect the mechanical components.

Riders can count on a WP Apex long-travel suspension system to take them as far off
