Check Out This Zagato Designed Motorcycle For MV Agusta

If there’s one thing motorcycle industry is need of, it would be a radical change in design. At this point, it seems like independent bike makers are the ones taking the lead to challenge the status quo in motorcycle design, but not established bike makers. It is strange phenomena, considering established bike manufacturers are the ones with the financial muscle. However, we may be seeing a shift here, starting with Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta upcoming two-wheeler, the F4Z, which will be officially unveil in September 4, 2016.

Never Ridden 2014 Lotus C-01 Motorcycle To Go Under The Hammer

Remember that super sexy Lotus C-01 motorcycle that’s not built by Lotus? Only 100 units of this fine example were built, which makes it one of the super rare two-wheeler, if not the rarest, in the world. If you weren’t one of the hundred lucky folks who managed to secure one, here’s another golden opportunity for you to do so; only this time, it is going to be both easy and difficult to obtain. In a way, it is easy to obtain because this particular immaculate example, which apparently has never been ridden, will be going under the hammer at Monterey Car Week.

Custom Ducati Monster 1200 S ‘Siluro’ Superbike Is A Jaw-dropping Beauty

If you think a Ducati like the naked Monster 1200 S a little too plain for your liking? Well, then you really have check out this one-off custom Monster 1200 S rolled out by Madrid-based bike customizer, XTR Pepo. Named after the much revered 50s Siluro, this modern day iteration of the Siluro is pretty much jaw-dropping looker in our books. While it may not set speed and endurance records like the namesake it has taken on, it is an undeniably cool bike. For this project, XTR Pepo took a 2015 Ducati Monster 1200 S and made it even more naked then it already have – pulling over the covers off the engine and radiator and leaving their internals complete exposed. This rather odd but unique touch may not go down well with every bike lovers and it certainly makes no practical sense (like exposing parts to debris), but it does look kind of cool.

Footwear Consultancy Design And Built A Race Bike And Took It To A Race

Yeap. You read the post title correctly. Portland-based Ghost Works (formerly Lund Nielsen Design) is an industrial design consultancy that deals in all-thing athletic footwear, but apparently, they are bursting with ideas and passion that goes beyond footwear speaks and to prove this, the company has taken to designing and building a motorcycle, which they did. Seriously, if a footwear design consultancy designing and building a race bike is not something that amazes, then we don’t know what is or will. Anyways, the end product is far from something that slips on your feet, but one that has the potential to rocket hundred of miles an hour in an international race event on one of the world’s most iconic, if not the most famous, race track, the Continue reading Footwear Consultancy Design And Built A Race Bike And Took It To A Race

Lazareth LM 847 Is A 4-Wheel Monster Bike Powered By 470 HP Maserati Engine

If you are still feeling sore about missing out on the four-wheel super bike, Dodge Tomahawk, well, we have good news for you. Now, for about half the price the Dodge Viper-powered Tomahawk, you can acquire the Lazareth LM 847, a bike with similar caliber as the Tomahawk, which means it is a motorcycle with not two, not three, but four wheels. And no, it is still not a car. You see, the pair of front and rear wheels are tightly packed, which means it is more like a bike with insanely wide wheels and also, it is powered by a car’s motor. Continue reading Lazareth LM 847 Is A 4-Wheel Monster Bike Powered By 470 HP Maserati Engine

If Batman Was Real, The Ronin 47 Would Be His Bike of Choice

first founded in 1983 by former Harley-Davidson engineer Erik Buell, Wisconsin-based Buell Motorcycle was soon acquired by Harley-Davidson in 2003 after a 49 percent acquisition in 1993. between its founding and cessation, it has produced a number of models, but the most notable among them was the 1125 made between 2009 and 2010, which was a major departure from Buell’s design ‘tradition’ mainly because it was based on Harley-Davidson Sportster and it was a sport bike. i am not sure if we should grant the Buell 1125 the cult status, but it is, after all, the last model to be made before things turn really bad and have to bid the world adieu.

Supercharged Kawasaki Ninja H2R Looks Like a Bat Out of Hell

if you think you know every damn thing about Kawasaki motorbikes. think again. the Japanese bike maker’s latest Ninja, H2R, is decidedly very “un-Kawasaki”, much less a Ninja, and looks like a bike pulled straight from the pages of sci-fi script and it has wings too, well, winglets, actually. its supercharged in-line four motor is built around a trellis frame and as the model hinted, it is a track homologation of the ‘lesser’ street version, H2. as you would have expected from a bike bred for the track, it has fair amount carbon fiber in areas like the body, the dual-intake air duct that leads to the supercharger (even the air duct!) and possibly more parts then we have read. it has a single-sided swingarm and as a hint that it could be a bullet on the race track, it has a pair of winglets, flanking the sharp front end, that works to put some downforce at extreme speed.

Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster – The Same Record Breaking Bike, Only More Handsome

if the record breaking Confederate X132 Hellcat Combat is a soldier in combat fatigue, then the Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster would be the same soldier in tuxedo. obviously understanding combat look isn’t for everyone (we are not the ‘everyone’, btw), motorcycle maker Confederate now offers those who wanted a more elegant ride, and with pretty penny to drop, the Speedster. just take it as the X132 Hellcat had a change of dress and what’s nested within the frame is still the same 2,163cc X132 56-DEG Fuel Injected V-Twin engine pumping out a breathtaking 121 horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque, which will still take you to the same exhilarating speed. Continue reading Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster – The Same Record Breaking Bike, Only More Handsome

Lotus C-01 Motorcycles

last year, when we heard wind about the prospect of Lotus motorcycles, we are pretty doped and we still are today. in fact, Lotus motorcycles is to become a reality, but the Lotus C-01 Motorcycles, as it is called, will not be built by the British maker of sports and racing cars. word has it that German racing firm Kodewa and tuner Daniel Simon managed to secure the license to use the name from Lotus Cars and will be building the C-01, which is a Daniel Simon’s design. Simon, incidentally, was the person behind the Tron Light Cycles and had dabbled in Bugatti as a consultant. honestly, with a bike this drool-worthy, we don’t quite care who’s behind; all we need to know is, it will be built and it has the innards to match the stunning visual appearance.

Voxan Wattman Electric Superbike

don’t let underperforming electric motorcycles (with less than inspiring design, if we might add) drench your hope for a more exhilarating and cleaner future ride. if there’s anything that could change that perception, it would be the Voxan Wattman Electric Superbike which as its name suggests, is loaded with wattage – thanks to the chunk of batteries that form bulk of the bike – enough for it to travel up to 110 miles (180 km) and also enables this beast, or should we say ‘tank’, on two wheels rocket from naught to 62 miles an hour in 3.4 seconds – and 0-100 mph (160 km/h) in mere 5.9 seconds – and achieving a top speed of 105 mph (170 km/h). and the real kicker here? its massive 12.8 kWh lithium-ion juice pack takes just 30 minutes to recharge up to 80% capacity – a quality made possible with European quick charge standard “COMBO II” socket and even better still, an onboard charger allows it to be charged using any household outlets.
