If you look at DP Customs’ “Seventy Three Ironhead” and ask yourself, “Why a hard tail and a sprung front end?” or “Why so black?” you should really just stick to driving your minivan and forget about motorcycles altogether. Source
Granted, music videos are an outdated medium but couldn’t you just see Nicki Minaj whipping across the everglades in a pink wig rapping from the cockpit of this flying hovercraft? Just us? Okay, but still this thing will fly up to 20-feet high at 70-MPH allowing the pilot to hop over obstacles an ordinary hovercraft could never clear.
In its original form, the old Yamaha XV920 was more than just a little lame. It was unremarkable in pretty much every way. Greg Hageman of Doc’s Chops however, has made his name by transforming old metric dogs into mean machines. These aren’t quick strip-down builds; this bike got a new sub-frame, a full rebuild, and re-purposed parts from a half dozen other bikes. Clearly Hageman knows what he’s doing. Source
Not long ago, riders who wanted an electric motorcycle had very few and very wack choices. BRD’s Redshift motocross bike is a shining example of how far we’ve come in a short time. Depending on how you roll, this stripped-down all electric design can be set up for off-road thrashing or zipping over potholes on city streets with endless torque. Source

Lamborghini is known for one thing: stupid-fast Italian-blooded cars that look like they’re designed for space flight. So when rumors started flying that Lambo would release an SUV at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, eyes began to roll. Were they jumping on the bandwagon? You decide. As soon as the floodlights shined on the Urus, an angular, 600-horsepower 4X4 super-SUV, a hush went over the crowd. Slated for release in 2015, the Urus will be the most powerful, least polluting SUV on the market. Viva Italia!
With its squared-off body and utilitarian design, the Mercedes G-Wagon sprays gravel on girly high-end SUVs like the Porsche Cayenne. That’s why M-B didn’t touch the body when they set out to make some upgrades on the 2013 G63 AMG. They focused on the interior instead. It now looks like a leather-clad Leer jet inside and features a new fuel saving system that shuts the engine off when it comes to a stop then restarts to continue driving.
Yes, the locals will call you a kook when you cruise out into the lineup on a motorized surfboard but you’ll get the last laugh when you crank up the WaveJet’s wristband accelerator and zip past them catching wave after wave.
Portland, Oregon’s Icon brand turns out serious, premium quality American-made motorcycle gear. The latest addition to their line is a full-face helmet rendered in raw composite. No fancy paint job, no BS. Very Mad Max. The fog- free shield is optional.
Sci-fi writers & futurists have been promising this thing to us since way back in the day. Finally, the flying car is here. The Pal-V One is a 2-seat, 3-wheeled car that gets 28 mpg and hits ground speeds over 100. In 10 minutes you can transform it into a plane with a flight range of 500 miles. And Yes, you need a pilot’s license to take this thing up.
