This year’s New York Motorcycle Show may not have been all that significant from a new model introduction standpoint, but that doesn’t mean Javits wasn’t packed to the brim with eye candy. We already brought you some tastey shots of Confederate’s B120 Fighter and Wraith but Progressive Insurance also had a kick ass booth full of one-off choppers and other custom creations. Equally cool was the Sucker Punch Sally and Campagna T-Rex displays. Hell, Ducati even put on a little fashion show to highlight their new Multistrada and line of motorcycle-inspired apparel. Check out all the goodies after the jump.

Conferderate’s brochure for their P120 Fighter (pictured above) doesn’t much delve into specific features. Sure, it references the 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum used throughout its construction. And it mentions the 160HP V-Twin that is nestled into the naked, minimalist frame. But most of the pages highlight famous quotes and clever copy that speak to being an individual and breaking all the rules. After all, anyone who buys a bike like this is not the least bit concerned with fading into the background. Confederate describes their aesthetic as being crafted, industrial, sculptural and honest. I am going to tack bad ass and not-from-this-world onto that list. Also in the Confederate booth was P120’s evil carbon fiber brother – the Wraith.
