Predator Motorcycle

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

Predator MotorcycleSo you are out for a leisurely drive one fine Sunday and suddenly you hear an ungodly roar, then see this thing zip past. It went by so fast you can’t even be sure there was a rider. But you know a Predator face when you see one. It could mean only one thing. Invasion. And they obviously now have cycles. We are screwed.

It’s actually from New Jersey custom bike shop Pitstop Motors who built this Predator motorcycle on commission. It’s fully functional. The owner even got two tickets on it’s maiden voyage, due to onlookers holding up traffic.

2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on October 28th, 2009

2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike When a motorcycle has four wheels, is it even a motorcycle anymore? We have no idea. This beast has left us dazed and confused, but mostly we just can’t stop staring. This thing looks like it kicks some serious ass.

What you are looking at is the 2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike. Those wheels are 17-inchers and all four support a 350 cubic inch engine with 350 horsepower. It looks like it came straight out of a Sci-Fi flick.

The Beer Trike

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on August 26th, 2009

The Beer TrikeForget drunk driving. The Beer Trike drives your drinks. It is essentially a mobile pub. And perhaps one of mankind’s finest inventions. It could be as big as the ice cream truck, only for adults. The beer trike was built for the British Biker Build-Off.

You have your usual bike along with a sidecar, and a completely operational mobile bar. It also sports air suspension on all three wheels. The only concern is how to keep all of that beer cold. If I could, I would buy this and travel the country filling mugs everywhere and becoming a legend.

Zero MX Electric Motorcross Bike

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on June 11th, 2009

Zero MX Electric Motorcross BikeZero Motorcycles has just introduced its latest zero-emissions bike. The Zero MX packs an electric motor into a lightweight motorcross bike frame and even manages to throw in some quality components. Having been tweaked for performance, Zero claims that the MX will keep up with its gas-powered counterparts.

The MX will supposedly allow riders to jump higher and land softer, with a beefed up front-end and a “custom rear shock that gives riders a fully adjustable spring preload and easily tuned damping.”

MotoMap GPS device for bikes

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2009

MotoMap GPS device for bikesStephen Dettman loves bikes. That’s why he designed the MotoMap GPS Device for Bikes concept. The concept uses two new technologies. Powerfilm flexible solar panels and e-ink flexible displays. First where do you put it? It tackles the hardware mounting issue by wrapping around the fuel tank with magnets in the adjustable straps. It should stay in place even in an accident.

When not in use, flip it around so that the solar panel can work, storing up juice. We won’t be seeing it anytime soon, but it’s an interesting idea. Even if it does somewhat resemble a saddle for your bike.

Moto-Terminator concept

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on April 30th, 2009

Moto-Terminator conceptI know that you can hardly wait for the Terminator Salvation movie to hit. So here’s something to tide you over until opening day. Titan Books just released the Terminator concept art of the Moto-Terminator. That’s where a Terminator is riding a motorcycle, or is the cycle, or transforms into a cycle. Or whatever. Either way it isn’t good for John Conner.

It’s the Ducati Hypermotard. When the Terminator fuses with the bike, it be an all new killing machine with the familiar red eyes.

Ferrari V4 Superbike concept

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on September 24th, 2008

Ferrari V4 Superbike conceptSomething just had sex with my eyes and it’s the Ferrari V4 Superbike concept, but instead of having a smoke and cuddling I made a lame excuse and left so I could tell you all about it. This has to be the absolute best attempt at a Ferrari motorcycle. The concept is the work of Israeli designer Amir Glinik, who based his design around the theoretical application of the Ferrari Enzo’s V12 engine, chopped down to four cylinders and modified to drive just one wheel in a motorcycle.

Glinik’s design has a sleek shape that is futuristic, but thoroughly ridable and it catches your attention like a long-legged blonde in a room full of Ugly Bettys. Glinik even planned out the controls, blending elements from an F-16 fighter jet and the high-tech Formula One steering wheel. It even sports a weatherproof touch-screen LCD on the fuel tank. This is one that I think anybody would want to see built.

Robot rides a bike, may deliver papers & break windows

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on July 28th, 2008


Let me say this right off. If there’s one thing we don’t need, it’s bicycle riding robots. It just makes us easier to catch come Robo-Judgement day. That being said, this robot is amazing to watch in action. The Murata Boy was developed in Japan and can ride a bicycle like you and me. Well, actually a whole lot better.

He’s got Gyro Sensors so he can detect position and balance itself accordingly. He can even identify if a surface is uneven, with obstacles or is as smooth as a human’s bottom. It transmits images back to a computer for future reference and analysis. Apparently, this creation is the product of trying to develop a robot that can lift heavy loads and assist in perilous terrain sites. I fully expect to see these chasing people through fiery streets. If not I’ll be disappointed.

The Gunbus is an aptly named killer cycle

The Gunbus is an aptly named killer cycle
The picture above reminds me of my youth. Not since my high-school days has a woman ever had such power between her legs. (Insert rim-shot. Deafening silence.) Anyway, this behemoth is powered by a “410-cubic-inch, air-cooled, pushrod V-Twin” and “is actually ready to ride on normal roads and will soon go into series production.”

Yes, you will be able to buy one. As for the rest of us, this thing is going to scare you when you see it coming. And no, that’s not a really small woman. It will be interesting to see what crazy stunts people will do with these. We want.

Longest cycle ever holds lots of biker babes

Longest cycle ever holds lots of biker babes
Apparently the creator of this monstrosity took a page out of the electric bike train book. It’s for those with a large family or lots of friends who have no bike of their own. If you’re a biker in Utah and you’ve got like ten wives, why not take them all for a spin.

This thing has about 15 seats and looks like a giant erector set project. I’m guessing the turns are taken really wide, with everyone’s feet involved. And how much power does it actually have lugging all that extra weight around? I have no idea. But it sure is long. Yep. Long and yellow.

Batpod photographed: The Dark Knight’s bike

Batpod photographed: The Dark Knight’s bike
The Batpod is Batman’s motorcycle in the latest movie and it’s a head turner. But is it cool? While sweet looking in it’s way, it’s not exactly leaving us awestruck. It’s black, fat, and ready to go medieval on the Joker, but how does it turn with those thick tires?

The steering seems to be based on the thinner tire at the back. One thing is certain, Batman’s cape is going to get caught in those wheels. You can see more of the Batpod when Dark Knight is released on the 17th of July. I’m sure it will look more badass in the film.

MonoTracer is the jet of bikes

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2008

MonoTracer is the jet of bikes
Why go with a traditional motorcycle, when you can ride into the future on this $82,350 glass/kevlar/carbon/steel MonoTracer bike? It features a fully enclosed cabin which reduces drag and helps keep pebbles and bugs out of your face. The MonoTracer’s 130hp BMW engine goes 0-60 in 5.6 seconds and hits speeds up to 155mph.

So the question is, if you are fully enclosed inside of this speed machine, what do you do at stop lights if you cant put your feet down? Apparently it has little wheels that pop out for parking. Admittedly, it could be faster. And it could have an airbag or two, but the future isn’t about wimpy safety. It’s about coolness and a Utopian look that ain’t cheap.
