Can Honda Prevent Motorcycling Deaths?
Honda believes it is responsible for the safety of all its drivers and riders and is introducing new tech that will prevent collisions between cars and bikes. The Japanese company wants it to be fitted to all its new models by 2050, which might be possible in developed countries but raises questions about emerging countries where a vast majority of its products are sold. As many of these are in the budget range, is it viable to fit expensive tech to them?
Steve McQueen’s First Husqvarna Could Make Six-Figures at Auction

Will Harley Davidson Build a Superbike?
This Supercharged 2JZ-Swapped Toyota 86 Is Your Personal Burnout Jesus
Before the new Supra arrived, Toyota’s solely purpose-built sports car was the 86 (or GT86 or FT86 or Subaru BRZ or Scion FR-S, if you wish). In the U.S., the 2020 86 makes 200 or 205 horsepower and 151 or 156 pound-feet of torque depending on which gearbox you pick, so while it’s not oozing power, the 86 has other aces up its sleeves.
For example, the 86 is agile and overall a hoot to drive but, for some, a nimble RWD car that doesn’t need to be driven fast to generate quite the thrills simply doesn’t do the trick. Take this nice chap from Australia, for example.
Dodge Is Changing the Challenger and Charger Splitter Guards From Yellow to Pink
You could argue that the success behind Dodge’s current-generation Challenger (but also Charger) has a lot to do with the bulky, squarish muscle shape that you simply can’t go wrong with. There are owners, however, who thought the Challenger and the Charger needed a little design spicing… with splitter guards.
More precisely, a lot of owners choose not to remove those protective bits of plastic found on the cars’ splitters during delivery. And the fact that they’re painted in bright yellow makes them quite visible and in-your-face, standing out quite obnoxiously. We guess some people crave that sort of attention.
Tesla Makes A Bulletproof T-Shirt to Celebrate the Glass-Shattering Incident
The Cybertruck’s glass-shattering saga will remain fresh in our minds for a very long time. It’s not because of what happened on stage, but because Musk and his team don’t want us to forget.
Tesla is channeling all the hype it has received through memes and internet jokes into merchandise sales. On that note, the company is launching a new T-shirt featuring the incident, along with other Cybertruck-themed apparels and accessories. This is modern marketing 101 right here. The only downside - it’ll set you back by $45.
Subaru Doesn’t Give F.U.C.K.S About Naming Its Special Edition Car; Issues An Apology After Getting Mocked And Trolled
The Subaru Forester has been around for over two decades and has made a name for itself in the industry. Although it is on the verge of becoming an icon for the company since it’s the kind of compact SUV that sells itself, Subaru recently made a blunder.
At the Singapore Auto Show, Subaru brought a special edition of the SUV called ’Forester Ultimate Customized Kit Special.’ This created a huge uproar and people couldn’t stop mocking the FUCKS acronym. Subaru later apologized for it once it realized the unfortunate mistake. But, can you control the wildfire once it’s started?
You’ll be Shocked When You Find out Who Geely-Owned Lotus will Soon Compete Against
