Howe & Howe Is Back With A Leaner And Meaner Sport Tank Called EV3-F1

What has a 1,500 horses 727 cu-in HEMI engine and is capable of tearing through any terrain with blunt, brute force, leaving behind track marks? Well, it is certainly not a Jeep. Neither is it a Chrysler, or Dodge. In fact, those rides will be deemed tame by what you about to witness here: Ripsaw EV3-F1 Single Seater Super Tank. Now, do not mistaken this with the Ripsaw EV3-F4, which is a four-seater. This baby here is a solo ride and you know what that means. It means you can do whatever the hell you like when you are behind the wheel. And you will want to do whatever the hell you like because, it is the most extreme and most terrain dominant Ripsaw to date.

At this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, Yamaha had a theme called “Yamaha Future Garage: Resonate the Future” and what the motorcycle maker brought to floor was indeed futuristic.

Marshall Motoart’s RZR 1000 is the “Superleggera” of the Off-road World

We are accustom to custom cars, trucks and the usuals, but a custom off-road sport vehicle? Well, that’s kind of unheard of. Though, I am sure there are custom ATVs and sport vehicles out there.

Northern Lights Optic’s Promotional Snow Bike is a Classic Yamaha HL500 Slapped with Modern Ski Kit

Eyewear has no direct relation to snow-going transportations. That’s obvious. But to Northern Lights Optic’s Orion Anthony, the brand is all about adventure and freedom with a touch of vintage and therefore, to him, there is no better way to promote the brand by banding together a vintage trail bike with a modern snow bike kit, and that’s when Yamaha HL500 Snow Bike was born. Snowmobile could have do the job easy, but according to Orion, modern snowmobile are way too modern to convey the company’s “vintage twist” ideology and on the other hand, classic snowmobiles wouldn’t be effective in conquering the deep snow of the alpine and so, the decision was made to take an old, but iconic bike and fuse it with modern snow bike kit.
