Istituto Europeo di Design: The World’s Most Beautiful Motorcycles

The 1098 has been declared more beautiful than the MV F4

Last month, the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan had hosted an international Jury for ‘The World’s Most Beautiful Motorcycle’ award. Headed by one Enrico Leonardo Fagone, the Jury consisted of fashion designers, architects, artists, designers and transportation design experts. The awards ceremony is due to take place in Milan next week, on the 13th of June. The awards are aimed at recognizing “the artistic achievement in products that truly represent design in motion.”

The F4 CC wins the 'Special Series' category...

Coming to the bikes, the Ducati 1098 has won the ‘Fully Faired Streetbike’ category, followed by the MV Agusta F4 R312 in second place. The Bimota DB6 Delirio 1100 won the ‘Naked Streetbike’ category, followed by the Aprilia Shiver 750 in second place, while the Husqvarna SM 610IE won the ‘Off-Road’ category, followed by the Ducati Hypermotard 1100 in second place. [What?! The Ducati Hypermotard 1100 is an off-road bike…?!?]

The MV Agusta F4 CC won the ‘Special Series’ category, with the MV Agusta Brutale 910R Italia in second place. The Benelli Due won the ‘Prototypes’ category, followed by the Bimota Tesi 3D in second place.
