Even more, there’s even the question if it can be considered a motorcycle as it has various features that have never been seen before. Batman has definately set the trend for motorcycling future with its engines being fitted in the wheels and the unique riding position.

Harley-Davidson riders can now benefit of a new portable GPS made by Garmin. The new release is called the Road Tech zumo and its main targets are the Harley-Davidson dealerships, as part of the American maker’s motorcycle accessories lineup.
Being a limited edition product, it sounds very promising and it actually is. Because it will fit Harley-Davidson motorcycles - it comes with handlebar mount and support on Harley-Davidson.com - it will feature all the dealership locations preloaded on it.
What is interesting and makes the zumo more useful is the fact that it has an SD card slot, allowing other zumo users to share trip information, just like truck drivers.
But it can also be fun. Because it has XM satellite radio hardware, it can be accessed for getting weather information and listen to music. You can also get TMC traffic alerts in cities that support it, and if now you can still use the sports programming function to relax.
Making a phone call from your bike is now even easier as the Road Tech zumo makes calls via Bluetooth equipped headsets. As it is wireless, you can also listen to the voice guidance using this method.
Designed to suit a rider’s needs and not become bothering in any way, the ingenious guys at Garmin made sure that their new product can be operated with a rider’s big-gloved fingers and never be affected by rain.
With a price tag of nearly $800, this will surely become a major point of interest for Harley-Davidson riders as it brings them even closer together.
Toyota has recently released the Winglet, a three models series of machines working on the Segway’s principal. Reaching a walking human’s top speed and coming as size S, M, and L, these are planned to become a lazy man’s machine.
Seyyed Javad Ghaffarian lives in Iran and its wonderful ideas could one day bring you the safety of driving a tricycle on the highway and the versatility of riding a motorcycle in future city congestions.
A student, Javad has created the “Magic Tricycle”, a machine designed to role down the highway on all its three wheels and then face the urban jungle as a motorcycle. How is that possible, you will wonder? Its left wheel can rotate around a longitudinal axis and be sustained on top of the cabin. This brings all the benefits of a motorcycle after keeping the thing steady as a car at high speeds.
After being lifted up, the third wheel opens up its helicopter tail propeller style blades which increase stability. Another unique feature consists in the seats which rotate in order to keep occupants in an upright riding position.
What is both unique and attractive at this bike and tricycle is how easy and simple it can take one form or the other and still look great no matter what. This was the main goal of the Iranian designer and it has successfully achieved it.
I don’t know what to say about the name though…Magic Tricycle? Couldn’t it come up with something better? What do you think?
Legal Speeding took in consideration a rider’s needs to be notified when it approaches a radar, as the usual checks to the radar detector can be risky, so it created a wireless system which flashes an LED light inside the helmet. The light is very easy to spot and not bothering at all so it makes riding less worrying at least in what concerns speed tickets.
What is so great about this system is the fact that it simply plugs into the radar detector and the helmet doesn’t (...) > Full story

Full of defensive, but mostly offensive equipment, the Batpod is the famous two-wheeled machine that helps Batman end up victorious over its enemies in “Dark Night”.
Most Batman series concentrated on the action and we often found ourselves hoping he’ll get back in the Bat mobile and use the damn rocket launcher so let’s hope he spends a little more time on it at least now.
We all know how “imposing” a policeman on a scooter can be, but with the new T3 Mobile Defender from Lamperd Less Lethal we ca lose the quotation marks very easily.
At a first sight it doesn’t look very threatening for lawbreakers and even would make such subjects believe that it was probably invented to keep officers rested for when it comes to chase them on foot. Wrong! The chase won’t even be necessary as the small scooter comes equipped with a powerful air gun and (...) > Full story
You’ve probably read a lot of news about how police in Great Britain threaten to confiscate the bikes, cameras and computers of those who broadcast themselves on the internet after riding at speeds above 180 mph, but their gear is indeed efficient if it stood up to that.
Such an example is Twenty20 Motorcycle Camera and it is strongly recommended that you don’t use it for that, but to capture the most beautiful sights you’ve laid your eyes on and, eventually, share it (...) > Full story
