Kawasaki revealed a completely new concept at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. Perhaps it goes without saying, that the new concept looks absolutely fabulous. However, apart from its unique design language the new concept also hosts a series of eco-friendly technologies, namely an electric motor powered by a nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery pack.
The most intriguing part of the concept is the fact that is fitted with three wheels which makes it blur the line between motorcycles and four wheelers. Its three wheels configuration give it unique riding abilities and the technology used by Kawasaki to make all wheels work in tandem is pretty similar with the one found at Yamaha’s Tesseract - a hybrid concept presented back in 2007.
Apart from the three wheel configuration the concept is also able to transform according to the rider’s needs. And by “transform” we mean that it can become either short and wide in Comfort Mode or long and narrow in Sport Mode. In this way, you can get maximum performances both in the city and on the open road.
We also get a pretty strange handlebar with separate handles for each hand… so you’ll have to be a pretty good rider to be able to ride one of these.
The Can-Am Spyder RS-S is an innovative three wheeler packed with a comprehensive list of features which further enhance its already sporty character.
Among them you’ll find a Vehicle Stability System, Brembo brakes, a new arirflow side panel system, cruise control and a modern anti theft system.
Once on board you are welcomed by a comfy seat, digital gauges and a sporty handlebar. You also get 12 Gallons (44 L) of storage volume.
This unique machine rides on new machined 6 twin-spoke carbon black front wheels wrapped in 165 / 55 R15 tires and a rear 15 X 7 inch rim shod in a 225 / 50 R15 tire.
As far as power is concerned, the Can-Am Spyder RS-S sports a 998c, Rotax V-Twin, liquid-cooled engine with electronic fuel injection and electronic throttle control. The engine develops a maximum power of 100 Hp (74.5 KW) at 7500 rpm and 80 Lb-Ft. (108 Nm) of torque at 5000 rpm.

Ural has a long history behind it and somehow it managed to stay alive since the World War era. However, despite the serious number of ears that have passed since then, the style of its motorcycle’s didn’t changed much.
Therefore, after 100 years Ural’s bikes look pretty close to the bikes ridden by our grandpas. Luckily despite their vintage appearance, the new Ural motorcycles are fitted with contemporary engines and technologies, so their performances are at least on the decent side of things.
Keeping up with its tradition, the company has recently announced that they will reveal a new sidecar that will share Ural’s core values, but will be a completely different concept then the rest of its models.
The 2014 model is called the Gaucho Rambler and was born from Ural’s collaboration with Pendleton Woolen Mills.

For enhanced versatility, the Ural Tourist comes with a black cordura tonneau cover for the sidecar and a large windscreen. You also get both electric and kick start, electronic ignition, and a spacious trunk.
The motorcycle is built around a Boxer, OHV air-cooled, 4 stroke, 749 cc engine which cranks out a maximum power of 40 hp at 5600 rpm and 38 lb-ft at 4600 rpm. This power is kept in check by a four speed transmission and the maximum speed is rated at 65 mph.
