That car guy who at one point in time qualified motorcyclists as being ‘grown up man in power ranger suits’ might not have been that far from the truth considering that Universal Designs have created the Dark Knight Batman leather motorcycle suit. It is made of cordura, leather, kevlar and CE approved armor, which can be removed when you’re not actually riding your way to the end of delinquency.
Priced at US$998, the suit will be sold in a number of 1000 units, so you better hurry up if you were long planning to find the right gear to wear on your midnight cruiser. Full story
We recently came across an out-of-the-way combination between a motorcycle and a coffin. No, we’re not aware of any biker actually crashing into a coffin. In this case, the coffin plays the comfortable role of the sidecar, which is attached to this pretty stock cruiser.
The bike is not even a herse and it is frequently ridden looking like this. What is your opinion about it? Or, better said, how do you think the passenger in the right feels like?
French tuner Ad Koncept has come up with a very interesting way to customize the 2009 Honda CBR1000RR, not that much in matters of technical upgrades but more in terms of extremely attractive styling. The new Playboy scheme looks simply awesome on the standard fairing, but we do notice the Ohlins suspension, new Brembo brakes and LeoVince exhaust as well as the Rizoma special kit that was added to the bike.
The new special livery is sure to make this bike stand out even more, especially if it is ridden by one of those bunnies that we all like.
Carpenters rarely drift away from their object of activity, but when someone thinks at having a wooden fairing built for a Honda Nighthawk, bike building (or, better said, bike dressing) turns into a job for the man with few tools and plenty of imagination.
This particular creation was spotted at the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show and we understand it was quite a big attraction.
These pictures, courtesy of Stephane Feugere, show Lara Stone and Baptiste Giacobini shooting the press kit for Chanel’s pre-spring 2010 collection at the Chanel boutique on Rue Royale in Paris. The event took place last Friday and the man behind it is Karl Lagerfeld, who commissioned this Triton café racer for the occasion.
While the pictures look marvelous, we’re sad to say that the bike is not for sale.
North Carolina Ducati dealer Hattar Motorsports came up with this Martini Racing paintjob for the 1098S model.
Although drinking and riding isn’t something that we recommend, we have to admit that the Martini Racing livery looks just like the right ‘detail’ if planning to make the Ducati 1098S stand out even more than it already does with the usual paint schemes.
If taking this amazing looking motorcycle on the race track, it will surely be confused with a veritable racer (which it isn’t far from being, by the way).
We were wondering when the Martini Racing colors could find their place on a motorcycle because we’ve seen plenty of championship-winning race cars showing it ever since 1968. There could be no better choice than this specific Ducati model.
You may paint a delivery scooter to look like a yellow cab, but you won’t manage to drift it away from its original purpose…carrying pizzas. No need to, especially if trying to remark yourself among the competition as the original New Yorkan style pizza shop.
This reminds me of a young man named Peter Parker who never managed to deliver those pizzas on time. He would have looked much better on this custom painted beauty.
This is yet another one of those hubless motorcycle concepts which we know that won’t ever be even considered for production from the simple reason that it’s suppose to show off the skills of designer Anthony Garcia
and nothing more. Still, we can’t help noticing how this looks like a cruising version of the 2010 Honda V4
, which is also why we decided to bring it to your attention.
One of the most attractive concepts we’ve seen lately is the Honda CBR600RR Repsol Carbon published at deviantart
by TheUncle. Middleweight supersport models rarely benefit of such treatments so it’s good to see that someone thought at the slightly discriminated 600cc CBR. Also, there are two other bikes labeled as ‘Honda CBR600RR Concept Street Version’ and ‘Honda CBR600RR Concept Street Blu’, but those two look like a Kawasaki and a Suzuki
also prepped up for the track.
Motorcycles can be personalized in many different ways, but one of the most facile ones to make a sports bike really your own is to turn it into a cat. This one is a tiger!
