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.
You either love the Dodge Viper or you hate, there’s no in between. The 2013 SRT model packs a seriously rebuilt & re-tuned power train. The 640 horse V10 is now even faster while the body has been shaved down and tightened up for a leaner, more muscular look. Sorry, haters, it’s sick.
This isn’t the first bike we’ve featured by master-builder Winston Yeh. From his Shop in Taiwan, Yeh continues to turn out one-of-a-kind customs. This gothic sled is built around a highly polished Harley knuckle motor wedged into a Zero Engineering frame. All the custom body and fabrication stuff is Yeh’s handiwork. And it’s not a museum piece, it’ll peel you off if you’re not holding on tight. Source
Upstart American automaker Fisker has just shown off its latest creation, the Atlantic. This hybrid powered sedan will be backed by a BMW 4-banger in what the carmaker calls EVer, (Electric Vehicle with extended range.) Few details or specs have yet to be released about this new ride but if the Pontiac meets Jaguar styling and the Tron-inspired wheels float your boat, this could be your hybrid…someday.
Here’s something very different from Lincoln. The MKZ is a luxury machine entering a very competitive field of European and Japanese imports. Its strengths are the sculptural, elegant bodylines and a luxurious leather interior. Fresh features like a retractable glass roof, push-button shifting, and LED headlights, keep pace with competition. Would you finally buy American?
Harleys and those awful Victory bikes aren’t your only options for an American made motorcycle. Motus Motorcycles has created a line of truly American made bikes that look like a cross between a Ducati, a BMW and a Moto Guzzi designed for touring. The 100 cubic-inch “baby block” V4 pushrod motor gives them their distinctive look and fitted with hardware from Brembo, Ohlins, and Oz, they are definitely bikes for the serious rider seeking power and performance made here at home.
Triumph is celebrating its 110th year of making England’s most iconic motorbikes. The limited edition Bonneville T100 is based on their 1902 T100 No.1, and packs a parallel twin 865 cc motor, spoked wheels, and a tasteful smattering of chrome. The Brooklands Green color split paint scheme is a nod to the Brooklands track, the world’s first purpose built motor racing circuit. There’s an anniversary crest on the side cover, inspired by early bike badges that feature the classic Triumph crown icon. They’re only building 1000 of these beauties. Now’s your chance.
