Tron Motorcycle Helmet

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2010

You may not find any light cycles on the open road, but you can at least look like you are from the Tron movie with this helmet. This Tron decal Motorcycle helmet mimics the design of the original Tron lightcycle suit.

It was designed by French firm Ruby who have tried to replicate the look and layout of the circuits on the original helmet from the film. Its a limited edition created to celebrate the release of the Tron film in France. It will be released and available to purchase in January when the Tron film hits France.

2020 Harley-Davidson concept is Batman approved

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2010

This concept design for a futuristic Harley-Davidson motorcycle looks a lot like Batman’s Batcycle from The Dark Knight. And that is an awesome thing. Might as well wear the entire costume and cruise around Gotham looking for crazies.

The design itself is low on details, but we don’t even care. Ten years from now I want to be riding this thing. That’s all there is to it. By then I might even be able to afford it in my Batcave.

Steampunk Harley Davidson

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2010

We’ve seen our share of steampunk devices around here, but we’ve never seen a steampunk Harley Davidson. Until now. The bike frame looks like a Steampunk skeletal structure more than a frame. There’s also a cool T-Sable Spring engine and of course a Harley-Davidson transmission.

It goes by the name “Barro”. I would call it a sort of minimal interpretation of steampunk, but it works and makes the bike look as if it’s alive.

Alien sculpture made from 1,200 lbs of motorcycle steel

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on February 28th, 2010

There are few things scarier than the Aliens from Alien, even when they are made from steel. This is the work of three artists from the Irish company RoboSteel, who gathered 4,000 pieces of steel and then welded together this “Alien Queen”.

This 8-foot sculpture would be even scarier than the one in Ridley Scott’s film, because it’s right there in your face. What’s not scary is that it is green. 90% of the Alien’s 1,200 pounds of parts are recycled from Yamaha motorcycles.

Predator Motorcycle

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

Predator MotorcycleSo you are out for a leisurely drive one fine Sunday and suddenly you hear an ungodly roar, then see this thing zip past. It went by so fast you can’t even be sure there was a rider. But you know a Predator face when you see one. It could mean only one thing. Invasion. And they obviously now have cycles. We are screwed.

It’s actually from New Jersey custom bike shop Pitstop Motors who built this Predator motorcycle on commission. It’s fully functional. The owner even got two tickets on it’s maiden voyage, due to onlookers holding up traffic.

2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on October 28th, 2009

2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike When a motorcycle has four wheels, is it even a motorcycle anymore? We have no idea. This beast has left us dazed and confused, but mostly we just can’t stop staring. This thing looks like it kicks some serious ass.

What you are looking at is the 2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike. Those wheels are 17-inchers and all four support a 350 cubic inch engine with 350 horsepower. It looks like it came straight out of a Sci-Fi flick.

iBike: Wrist-mounted iPhone accessory

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 11th, 2009

iBike: Wrist-mounted iPhone accessoryHere’s a great accessory for bicyclists and motorcycle riders. It’s basically a wrist mount for your iPhone, so that you don’t have to stop every time you get a call or a message. Just receive your calls, check GPS updates on the route you’re taking and even listen to some tunes and control playback without having to pull over.

Plus it’s just plain cool to have an iPhone mounted to your wrist. Makes you feel important. The whole kit costs about $140 and will come in quite handy without your device being in hand.

Flossie the motorcycle riding robot

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2009

Flossie the motorcycle riding robotWith a name like Flossie, you would expect this bot to be extracting teeth from your mouth as it laughs maniacally, but it’s actually the Castrol-developed test rider you see above straddling that cycle. The robot without a cause has a love of cycles and a self-learning mode that lets it feel and test such things in a cycle as throttle response, clutch drag, gear shifting and such for any stationary bike.

That’s right, he “rides” while stationary. We wonder how long it will be before he actually takes one of these bad boys on the road, joining up with Murata Boy and filming a new robot version of Easy Rider. Hit the link for a video.

Brammo electric motorcycle now available

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2009

BrammoThe Brammo Enertia electric motorcycle is finally available and officially on sale. It should be interesting to see how this sells. The eco-friendly bike features a horsepower rating of 13.7, 31 ft/lbs of torque and weighs about 280 pounds. The bike has a top speed of about 50 miles an hour, with a 45 mile range before requiring a 3 hour recharge.

So if you’re looking for a more eco-friendly ride, this isn’t the most powerful of motorcycles, but you’ll be doing your part while getting your vroom vroom on. It will run you about $12,000.

Motorcycle has the largest sidecar ever

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on June 28th, 2009

Motorcycle has the largest sidecar everYou’ve seen motorcycle sidecars, but you’ve probably never seen anything like this. It’s called the “Snaefell” and it’s the work of Francois Knorreck. This beautiful monstrosity took him 10 years and over $20,000 to complete.

And it is totally unique. The motorcycle is a Laverda, and the car is cannibalized from several different vehicles. This is a sidecar that’s all about style and comfort. If you have to ride in a sidecar this is what you want to use.

Indian students design an air-powered motorcycle

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on May 11th, 2009

The air-powered bike you see in the video above was designed by a team of engineering students from India. To help combat the ever-increasing pollution levels in the atmosphere, they designed themselves a working model that runs on air rather than gasoline.

Sure, it will only cover 18km/h. But at least this bike isn’t dirtying the air. It only emits Oxygen. This bike runs on air and emits air. That’s an eco-win all around. Now if they can just figure out how to get more out of it…

Stealth Bomber Cycle: Flying on two wheels

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on January 15th, 2009

Stealth Bomber Cycle: Flying on two wheelsThis year marks the 20th anniversary of the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber. What better way to commemorate the anniversary than with a cycle by the crew at Orange County Choppers. As usual they took the basic look of the plane and made a cycle version. The bike even has some of the original titanium from the original B-2 aft deck and each wheel features scale models of B-2s in star formations.

It’s pretty awesome, for sure. But is it just me, or does it kinda look like a Dolphin? It almost looks toy-like. Very plastic looking. At any rate, it’s nice to know that our military has their priorities straight when it comes to spending our tax money. Hopefully this bike has some hidden firepower.

Limited edition cat motorcycle purrs, loudly

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on October 3rd, 2008

Limited edition cat motorcycle purrs, loudlyThere’s not a ton of information on this cat-themed motorcycle, but we can tell you that it’s powered by a 1200cc Buell 97 S3 Thunderbolt engine. We also believe it’s supposed to be a Jaguar, the cat body being fiberglass finished in ultra-high-gloss ebony polyurethane lacquer. The air intakes and exhaust system of course had to be custom-engineered to go along with the cat body.

They will definitely see you coming on this bike. That is, if you have any money left for gas after shelling out almost $600,000. It would be a perfect bike for say, Catwoman in the next Dark Knight movie.

Ferrari V4 Superbike concept

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on September 24th, 2008

Ferrari V4 Superbike conceptSomething just had sex with my eyes and it’s the Ferrari V4 Superbike concept, but instead of having a smoke and cuddling I made a lame excuse and left so I could tell you all about it. This has to be the absolute best attempt at a Ferrari motorcycle. The concept is the work of Israeli designer Amir Glinik, who based his design around the theoretical application of the Ferrari Enzo’s V12 engine, chopped down to four cylinders and modified to drive just one wheel in a motorcycle.

Glinik’s design has a sleek shape that is futuristic, but thoroughly ridable and it catches your attention like a long-legged blonde in a room full of Ugly Bettys. Glinik even planned out the controls, blending elements from an F-16 fighter jet and the high-tech Formula One steering wheel. It even sports a weatherproof touch-screen LCD on the fuel tank. This is one that I think anybody would want to see built.
