Obviously most of the bikes at EICMA were from Italian manufacturers and some of these are not currently available in the UK... but it's interesting to see the smaller brands like Guerciotti (Fat Birds Don't Fly sell these) leading the way in colour scheme design - they are really very pretty bikes for 2006.

Bike of the Show? wait until tomorrow when we will reveal all... yes there's still more to come!
