BMW Wants To Attack the Sports Compact Market With The FWD 128ti
BMW is once again setting its sights on the hot hatch market with a new 1 Series model that calls back one of the German automaker’s rarely used badges. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the BMW 128ti, and it wants to take a bite out of the hot hatch market. The 128ti — the “ti” stands for Turismo Internazionale — will have a tough go at it with so many contenders in the segment, but, rest assured, Bimmer isn’t returning to the niche market with the intention of being a mere spectator.

The 128i is more contender than pretender, and while all the details won’t be revealed until its expected debut in November, it looks like BMW has a new pocket rocket on its hands.

Electric Scooter Buying Guide - Everything You Need to Consider
The e-scooter industry might still be in its infancy, but these electrically-powered machines are enjoying an increasing amount of popularity by the day. People living in big cities have rushed to adopt this new trend out of purely practical reasons - with so many cars stuck in traffic, e-scooters are the shortcut more, and more people are willing to take. Factor in their relatively low maintenance costs and the fact that you can easily fold them for storage or transport purposes, plus the advantage of not getting to your destination with a sweaty back, like it happens with bicycles or kick scooters, and you get an unbeatable recipe.
But with high demand comes high offer. With more and more people looking to get an e-scooter, companies that produce them have multiplied like rabbits, and others are joining them as we speak. This means that you, the buyers, now has hundreds of options to choose from, from low-end, cheap e-scooters to performance and off-road-oriented ones. So, which one is best for you? Well, only you can decide that, but we’ll give you a hand with a guide that touches on what key aspects you should consider before placing that order.
Hiboy MAX Electric Scooter Review
Electric scooters are still booming although some governments are coming up with restrictions and sanctions for those who don’t ride them appropriately – as in with a helmet and not on crowded sidewalks, to start with. Also, don’t ride an e-scooter while drunk. Just don’t.
Now, there are a lot of options you can choose from in the under-$500 e-scooter niche, including the versatile Xiaomi M365. In this review, however, we’ll focus on the Hiboy MAX electric scooter.
Segway Ninebot ES1 Gen 2 Electric Scooter Review
Segway upgraded the Ninebot ES1 electric scooter so the Gen 2 now packs a 300-watt e-motor instead of a 250-watt one.

The Ninebot ES1 is Segway’s entry-level scooter, the lightest it currently offers, and one of the lightest on the market. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at it.
What Sets The Two Hot Wheels RC Tesla Cybertrucks Apart?
Although the Cybertruck produced by Tesla is not going to arrive until 2022, the Cybertruck by Hot Wheels will be here by the end of 2020.
Hot Wheels and Mattel will be producing remote-controlled Cybertrucks in two sizes: 1:10-scale and 1:64-scale models. Both RC trucks were revealed at the 2020 Toy Fair and, believe it or not, the 1:10-scale model truck sold out within hours after it was announced. The demand was so high that Hot Wheels has even started a waiting list. The 1:10 model is priced at $400 and the 1:64 one at just $20.
This Saleen-inspired Fender Stratocaster is a carbon-fiber work of art
Cars and guitars have worked well together since the early days of rock’n roll. Musicians like Eric Clapton, Jamiroquai, and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason are avid car collectors. Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson also owned an impressive fleet of limousines and sports cars.
Come 2020 and Fender pays tribute to the sports car market with a guitar inspired by the Saleen S1. The limited-edition six-string is based on the iconic Stratocaster, but it’s a more modern rendition made with different materials and different design. A Stratocaster for the modern guitarist.
