2024 Aprilia RS 457

2024 Aprilia RS 457 review
2024 Aprilia RS 457

The all-new 2024 Aprilia RS 457 is inspired by the RS 660 and features a liquid-cooled parallel-Twin. The engine is presumably 457cc, but specifics have yet to be released by the company; however, Aprilia is claiming the DOHC, 4-valves-per-cylinder engine cranks out 47 hp and has a dry weight of 350 lb.

The Aprilia RS 457 is equipped with throttle-by-wire, three ride modes, and a 41mm fork with 4.7 inches of travel and a rear shock with 5.1 inches of travel. Stopping power comes from a single radial-mount 4-piston caliper pinching a 320mm disc up front and a 1-piston caliper pinching a 220mm disc out back and standard dual-mode ABS. An up/down quickshifter is available as an accessory.

MSRP for the 2024 Aprilia RS 457 is $6,799 and bikes are expected to arrive at dealerships in the spring.

The 2024 BMW R 1300 GS is the next generation of BMW Motorrad’s top-selling model. Displacement of its signature opposed boxer Twin has increased from 1,254cc to 1,300cc, and it now makes a claimed 145 hp and 110 lb-ft of torque, up from 136 hp and 105 lb-ft on the R 1250 GS.

Other changes include the relocation of the 6-speed gearbox under the engine, as well as a revision of the entire chassis.

2024 Can-Am Origin

Can-Am Electric Motorcycle Pulse Origin
Can-Am Origin

At the annual Club BRP event in August 2022, Can-Am unveiled two all-new, all-electric motorcycles – the Origin dual-sport and the Pulse roadster (below). Detailed specs won’t be provided until mid-2023 (at Can-Am’s 50th anniversary celebration), but both will be powered by BRP’s all-new, proprietary Rotax E-Power technology, said to provide “highway-worthy speeds with plenty of horsepower and torque.”

The Can-Am Origin has rally-style bodywork, fork guards, and spoked wheels, in diameters that appear to be 21 inches in front and 18 inches out back, common sizes for off-road tires. The final drive is enclosed, and Can-Am reps would not reveal whether power is sent to the rear wheel via chain (used on nearly all dual-sports) or belt (used on many production electric bikes).

The Can-Am Pulse has the muscular stance of a streetfighter, with racy-looking cast wheels shod with sportbike rubber and a sculpted “tank” that keeps the bike’s profile in line with conventional gas-powered motorcycles. The Origin dual-sport (above) and Pulse roadster share key design elements: distinctive LED headlights, large TFT displays, edgy white and gray bodywork, a bright yellow panel covering their battery packs, inverted forks, single-sided swingarms, single-disc brakes front and rear, and solo seats. Rear cowls may cover pillion seats; passenger footpegs are not visible on either machine, but production versions will likely have passenger accommodations.

2024 CFMOTO Papio CL
2024 CFMOTO Papio CL

Formerly just the one model, the 2024 CFMOTO Papio CL and Papio SS are designed to appeal to different types of buyers. CFMOTO says the CL has “scrambler roots” and is more geared toward playing the dirt, while the SS has a retro racing look. Both bikes feature an air-cooled fuel-injected 126cc Single making 9.4 hp, but the peak comes a little sooner than the 2023 model (8,250 rpm vs. 8,500), and the torque is slightly higher at 6.8 lb-ft compared to 6.5 lb-ft on the 2023 model. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, which is a unique feature in this segment.

2024 CFMOTO Papio SS

Both bikes ride on the same suspension and braking as their predecessor, and they both ride on 12-inch three-spoke aluminum alloy wheels, with the CL tires sporting a more chunky tread pattern than the SS. The CL also has a higher handlebar and lower footpegs to suit its purpose, while the SS has clip-on handlebars, a quarter fairing, and a lower belly pan.

The 2024 Papio CL comes in Nebula Black or Galaxy Grey starting at $3,299, and the Papio SS comes in Magma Red, Nebula White, or Moss Green, also at $3,299.

2024 Royal Enfield Himalayan review
2024 Royal Enfield Himalayan

The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been updated for 2024. The air-cooled 411cc Single has been replaced with a liquid-cooled 452cc Single with DOHC and 4 valves. The claimed 39.5 hp is reached at 8,000 rpm, and 29.5 lb-ft of torque arrives at 5,500 rpm. The new Himalayan’s entire power curve surpasses that of its predecessor, and the engine revs out farther. The engine is now a stressed member of the frame, and a new gearbox has six speeds instead of five. Located under the fuel tank is a new airbox.

The previous conventional 41mm fork has been replaced with a Showa cartridge-type inverted fork with 43mm tubes, and the rear shock is now a linkage type with adjustable preload. Suspension travel is 7.9 inches front and rear.

As before, the Himalayan rolls on spoked wheels with tube-type rims, 21-inch front and 17-inch rear. There are still single disc brakes front and rear, but the 2-piston front caliper now squeezes a 320mm disc (up from 300) and the 1-piston rear caliper squeezes a 270mm disc (up from 240). ABS is standard and can be disabled at the rear wheel for off-road duty.

2024 Triumph Stealth Edition lineup

Following the success of previous limited-edition Triumph paint or chrome lines, the company has released the 2024 Triumph Stealth Edition lineup, returning the spotlight to the paint shop. The new custom-style paint finish will be available for one year only on eight of Triumph’s Modern Classics: the Bonneville Speedmaster, Bonneville Bobber, Bonneville T100, Bonneville T120 and T120 Black, Speed Twin 900 and 1200, and Scrambler 900. Each model features its own unique tank design that showcases a dramatic hand-painted finish that intensifies in the light to reveal vivid color.

The process starts with a base layer of mirror-finish metallic Silver Ice applied to each tank, followed by a precisely placed dark-to-light Sapphire Black graphite vignette. Finally, a translucent tinted lacquer is applied in multiple layers to create the topcoat. The transition from dark tinted graphite to vibrant color springs to life when exposed to light, varying in hue and tone under different conditions and appearing different from every angle.

Both scooters are built on a full steel body and share many components, with the major differences between the two coming in the form of styling touches and color options. Updates for 2024 include new switchgear, new hand grips, and a new front shield. Most of the upgrades to the Vespa Primavera and Sprint S come from the electronics department. A new instrument panel combines an analog speedometer with a 3-inch LCD screen, which shows a tripmeter, fuel consumption, and average and max speed. The LCD instrumentation also permits the rider to connect to a smartphone.

The Primavera comes with chrome finishings and is available in Bianco Innocente, Nero Convinto, Verde Amabile, Arancio Impulsivo, or Blu Enérgico. The Vespa Sprint S is available in Bianco Innocente, Nero Convinto Opaco, Verde Ambizioso, Rosso Coraggioso, or Blu Eclettico. Pricing for the U.S. has not yet been announced.

2024 Yamaha MT-09 SP

Marking the 10th anniversary of the MT-09, Yamaha has added a long list of new features to both the 2024 Yamaha MT-09 and the up-spec MT-09 SP. Both bikes retain the liquid-cooled 890cc inline-Triple with a crossplane crankshaft, a light but robust frame, and 6-axis IMU with a full suite of lean-sensitive rider aids. 

Adding to the electronics suite is the new Back Slip Regulator and Yamaha’s third-generation Quick Shift System. Both bikes feature three integrated ride modes (Sport, Street, and Rain). Riders can also create two custom modes with tailored settings, and the SP adds four exclusive Track modes. 

Braking is now provided by Brembo components, with a new radial master cylinder. The SP takes it up a notch with Brembo Stylema monoblock calipers. For suspension, both bikes still have a 41mm fully adjustable inverted fork, but the MT-09’s adjustable KYB rear shock features revised linkage settings, and both bikes have higher spring rates and updated damping characteristics. On the SP, fully adjustable suspension includes a DLC-coated 41mm KYB fork and an Öhlins rear shock. 

The MT-09 will be available in Team Yamaha Blue, Midnight Cyan, or Matte Raven Black for $10,599. The MT-09 SP comes in an R1M-inspired Liquid Metal/Raven color scheme for $12,299.

The 2024 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+ features a liquid-cooled, crossplane-crankshaft 890cc CP3 inline-Triple. When we tested the 2021 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT, it produced 108 hp at 10,000 rpm and 63 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheel on Jett Tuning’s dyno. Four integrated ride modes – Sport, Street, Rain, and Custom – have unique throttle-response maps and level presets for TCS, SCS, LIF, and semi-active suspension.

Topping the list of updates on the 2024 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+ are innovative electronic rider aids, including Adaptive Cruise Control and a radar-linked Unified Brake System, which are enabled by a new Millimeter Wave Radar unit that constantly measures distance to vehicles ahead. The bike also features the next generation of the KYB Actimatic Damper System (KADS) electronically controlled suspension, an updated quickshifter, and a new 7-inch TFT display, which replaces the pair of 3.5-inch displays on the previous model.

Available in a Storm Gray two-tone colorway, the 2024 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+ will be in dealerships in August with an MSRP of $16,499.

  1. Here i want to include one thing we should keep in mind about the budget. and ur experience level and comfort with handling different power levels. Smaller engine sizes are often recommended for beginners, while experienced riders may prefer larger, more powerful engines.

  2. Wow! Two years in a row…. How is it that Moto Guzzi’s V100 and V100S Mandello were omitted? A brand new everything from the ground up model, first liquid cooled for Guzzi, single sided swingarm etc., etc. and no mention for the second year in a row?

  3. I believe you’ve left off the first ever production motorcycle with a radar-linked unified brake system, the newly updated 2024 Yamaha Tracer 9GT+
    Rider just recently wrote this about it:

    “Just three years after introducing the Tracer 9 GT sport-tourer, which won Rider’s 2021 Motorcycle of the Year award, an upgraded version has been announced for 2024: the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+.”

    • Thanks, Phil. We did indeed write that (glad you are paying attention 🙂 ), but sometimes it takes a couple days after we release the news of a new/updated bike before we get it into the guide. It’s there now.

      Thanks for reading Rider!

  4. Hi, Thanks for up date on 2024 bikes. Triumph still has not listened. 400 cc is fine
    With the new tecnology. But a single ( vibration) heavy for its size and tall seat.
    I’m pushing 80. Legs are not as strong as they once were. Gave up my Thruxton.
    Looking for lighter/ lower seat / 400+cc range. My wife is short . Both of us hoping to stay with
    Triumph. Their partnership with India promised to do that. What I’m seeing is an
    India bike rebranded. Thanks again for your reporting and test rides info.

  5. These new street models for 2024 are an absolute game-changer! The level of innovation and design in the motorcycle industry never ceases to amaze me. Can’t wait to hit the road on one of these beauties and experience the future of riding firsthand. 🏍️🔥 #MotorcycleEnthusiast #2024Bikes #InnovationInMotion

  6. I was pleased to read about this model but am dismayed by the weight.
    As an older rider on larger bikes i was looking to downsize particularly in the weight category.
    I have arthritis in my right thumb and am looking for a bike with cruise, adaptive preferred, like on my 2021 BMW R1250RT. This bike is nearly the same weight…no help…

  7. I love your e-magazine. I’m waiting for a comprehensive article about electric motorcycles. Perhaps you’ve published one and I haven’t seen it, but I believe that is going to be a future market. Thank you for the great articles

  8. I’m a tad tentative about this question given Gary’s below about the Guzzi but, I’m wondering, does Rider not think Honda’s Africa Twin isn’t substantially “updated” for 2024? Their advertising suggests it is and the 19” front wheel and lower height and other tweaks is what’s making me think about trading in my older model. Maybe it’s not slated for North America . . . just asking.

  9. Whoever the designers are who think that moving the instruments on the Guzzis and Royal Enfields to the left of center was a good idea, obviously, are skewed to the left themselves. The new Corsa would be nearly perfect if that FUGLY headlight and speedo were done right.

  10. Great job Rider Magazine, well put together. You’re one of my favorite motorcycle info sources. Any inside skinny info on the all new Honda CB1000 Hornet, that is if it could be released sometime this Summer 2024? Honda returned the Neo Sports Cafe CB1000R unchanged from last year. Thinking this will be its last year, being replaced by the new Hornet. Any speculation on when we’ll see the highly anticipated new CB1000 Hornet?

  11. The 2024 KTM 990 Duke looks really nice, should compete well within the naked bike liter class. Just concerned about KTM’s partnership with Chinese CFMoto, not eager to purchase an upper-level brand like KTM with a Chinese built motor. Wonder if this collaboration will hurt KTM in the long run, TBD.

  12. I’ve been riding for about 60 years and obviously have gone through a mountain of different bikes. Looking for one now, includes so MANY different things, price, weight, looks, power and now seat height. Tip Toe start and stops are now not possible for me. Seeing the majority of bikes having high seat setups, require aftermarket seat shopping prior to selecting the bike I’m looking for. Funny what age (75), fixed income, body condition and wife’s concerns now affect all possible riding enjoyment. NONE of it will stop me from finding my next ride though.
