There is a Lamborghini logo on the handlebars too. Continue reading China Traffic Police Is Not Amused By Chinese Delivery Man’s Golden Bike

This Futuristic Electric Motorcycle Makes An Astonishing 250-Mile-Range

Custom BMW C Evolution Scooter Looks Like A Ride From Apocalypse

What you see here is not a half-baked electric maxi-scooter C Evolution from BMW Motorrad. It is just Rolf Reick of Krautmotors giving the C Evolution the art of omission, which means it is intentionally left bare. That’s another level of industrial look there that gives it an apocalypse vibe. I like! The multidisciplinary customizer has taken the road less traveled when whipping his magic on the BMW Motorrad’s e-scooter, removing the original cladding and adding an old-school casing which leaves half of the bike’s internals in all its glory. Yes, only half, but that’s dope enough. Man, the old-school casing in matte black kind of add to the futuristic apocalypse look.
