Stallions Centaur Classic 150
Stallions logo
#Stallions #Thailand - Almost every country has a motorcycle manufacturer, and Thailand is not exception. Here is Stallions motorcycles, with several motorcycles and scooters.

Spoon Motorcycle

Patent Two Wheel Drive
USA flag
#Patents #2WD #Rokon - Here is a patent that was submitted (and granted) in 2005 calling for a two wheel drive motorcycle. This patent uses chains to drive both wheels, and it looks very similar to the Rokon two wheel drive motorcycle, so much so, that I expect that the Rokon uses this patent. What do you think?

12 June, 2015 - Is This The Future MotoGP Motorcycle ?
BMW IR MotoGP Concept
USA flag
#Electric #Design #BMW #MotoGP - Motorcycles evolve, and so do the ones in MotoGP racing. In the near future, when gasoline runs out, or costs $100 per liter, races will no longer be held with ICE bikes. The current fad is electric motorcycles, since they are already racing them albeit not for MotoGP. But the time will come.

American designer Jordan Cornille from Detroit thought so too, so he designed an electric motorcycle for MotoGP racing, and gave it a BMW identity (which means BMW would be racing MotoGP..finally) and called in iR Concept.

And now you can buy a street version of the bike, and you can do that even if you live in North America.

BMW Urban Racer Concept
BMW Urban Racer Concept
#BMW #Concept - This is one motorcycle that BMW should be making, but probably never will, since it's too radical. The concept was designed by Jans Shlapins who is no stranger to headlines. The concept, BMW Urban Racer, looks and should feel like a winner.

Ryca CS 1 Cafe Racer
#Customization #CafeRacer #Bobber - Making your own bobber, cafe racer, scrambler etc is fun, but hard work, and you need a lot of patience.

Philippines Kuliglig
Philippines flag
#Philippines #WaterPump #kuliglig - No, you read it wrong. It's not water-powered motorcycles, but water PUMP powered motorcycles they ride in The Philippines. Interesting idea to convert a water pump into a motorcycle engine. It's cheap and very efficient. The bikes are called 'kuliglig', meaning cricket.

Halloween Motorcycle
Halloween Motorcycle
#Halloween #Motorcycle #PumpkinMotorcycle - Today is Halloween, so apart from seeing a lot of carved pumpkins, you really need to be riding a pumpkin motorcycle. Whether you like or not, it's a question of style, my biggest question is what does the motorcycle owner do all other days of the year???


3 July, 2013 - Ride The Revolutionary Revolver Motorcycle
#Design #CompressedAir #Motorcycle - There's nothing that says a motorcycle should have a certain look or style. There are no laws, apart from physics and gravity, that apply to the design of a bike, and design student Darren Kuo from Taiwan has understood that very well.

Darren has designed this amazingly striking motorcycle called "Revolver" as his graduation project. The bike looks at first glance to be pretty awesome, but there's more to the motorcycle than what meets the eye..........

Train Wreck Motorcycle

#Steam #Train #Design - It looks like design student Colby Higgins in Boston has combined several of his passions; design, steam trains and motorcycles. He has created a motorcycle that looks like a steam train. A perfect design:

Now if it could really work with steam, the bike could make a fortune during these tough times. With petrol costing an arm & a leg, imagine putting some wood or coals in the motorcycle and steaming away, like they used to do in the past...........

20 May, 2013 - If The Red Baron Would Have A Motorcycle, This Would Be It
Red Baron Motorcycle
#Amazing #Strange #Chopper - If ever the famous and notorious Red Baron would have had a motorcycle, this one would have been it. It's a custom made chopper, using a real aircraft engine, in this case a radial engine.

You should have a look at the video below, and TURN UP THE VOLUME. This is one engine you'll want to hear purr away. Amazing. I'd say the motorcycle has an enormous torque, but also that it's very heavy...........

25 March, 2013 - France: 100 Year Celebration of the Motorcycle
Cany Barville 2013 BMW R69S (600cc) from 1967
Cany Barville 2013 Portuguese Casal from 1980, 50cc (Zundapp base)
Usually when I go out to make photos for an article, it involves packing up my motorcycle with all my cameras, computers, sleeping gear, toothbrush, etc, or it might involve planes, trains and automobiles. But whatever the mode of transportation, it'll mean it's going to take a while before I get there, and even longer before I get back. That's because I live in the real countryside, in a small (186 inhabitants) village in Upper Normandy. My next door neighbors are cows, and I mean the animals.

Once or twice I've had something as a source for an article close-by, usually 15 to 30 minutes ride from my house, and that made me happy, but last weekend on Sunday, in the closest town to me, Cany-Barville, was a exhibition called "100 Years of Motorcycles". Cany-Barville is almost at walking distance from my house, a little over 5 kilometers, so the expo got marked in big black marker in my agenda (something my iPad did not like), since it was going to be one I was not going to miss.

The only thing that troubled me, and I never got a response, was why "100 years". Motorcycles have existed for more than 100 years. Anyway, it didn't spoil my fun. So off I went to the exhibition. Now do remember, we're in the middle of "shit-kicker" country, so whatever it was going to be was small but done with gusto. ..........

20 March, 2013 - Ever Hear Of Motorcycle Manufacturer Italika? They’re Big
Italika RT200
Italika logo
I thought I knew most of the big motorcycle manufacturers out there, but I was wrong (as usual). When you have a manufacturer who makes some 200,000 motorcycles and scooters per year, you'd expect to know them, right? I mean, Ducati is world famous, but only produces some 50,000 units per year, so 4 times that should be even more know....

The company is called Italika, and they are Mexico's big motorcycle manufacturer. They started using the Korean Hyosung motorcycle as their basis, assembling them in Mexico, but now they're on their own. They design and make several models and sell them not only in Mexico but Guatemala, Honduras, Peru, Panama and Brazil.

As far as market share goes, Atalika "own" the Mexican market with some 63% market share in 2011; impressive for a company created in 2005. 1,000,000 motorcycles were made and sold since their creation. Here's what a few of their bikes look like...........

15 March, 2013 - Movie: The 1st Motorcycle Cannonball Race Documentary
Video clip
Hmmm... looks like an interesting video. It's a documentary of a Motorcycle Cannonball "race", not by hardcore race motorcycles, but by pre-1916 motorcycles.

You can imagine how tough a coast-to-coast race would be on present-day race or endurance motorcycle, so you can imagine how it would be on a vintage bike dating before 1916. Some don't even have a transmission. The need to rebuild their engines in the parking lots, and keep squeezing every bit out of the bike to make it to the coast. And I guess the bikers will need to have their kidneys and other organs remolded after each day.............

20 February, 2013 - India: Now Victory Motorcycles To Enter India
Eicma 2011 Victory Arlen Ness Vision Tour
Victory logo
Are there still any motorcycle manufacturers out there that haven't started selling in India or at least announced that they are planning to? Almost any self-respecting manufacturer has decided to enter this mega market. The last one to make their intentions known that they want to sell their high-end motorcycles is Polaris with their Victory Motorcycles brand.

Polaris are not an unknown name in India, since they sell ATVs, but it'll be a first for Victory. Apparently the Victory motorcycles will be shipped to India, not built there (CBU - Completely Built Unit). Any unit that is not manufactured in India faces enormous import duties (about 110%), so much so that you can expect the already expensive motorcycle to double in price before it reaches the customer's hands...........

4 February, 2013 - World’s Fastest Motorcycle Sold
Glenn Brittian Rocket Motorcycle
Glenn Brittian Rocket Motorcycle
Imagine that... a motorcycle capable of doing 400 mph (640 kph). And it was up for sale at eBay for US$27,000. Of course, it's not a motorcycle that you can ride in traffic.

No, the motorcycle built by Glenn Brittian is a rocket motorcycle. So it's one step up over the Marine Turbine Y2K motorcycle, since it has a rocket, not a turbine engine.

The "motorcycle" is meant for drag races, since it'll last a quarter mile before you need to feed it pennies to go again, or more likely hydrogen peroxide. The bike's rockets provide 3500 pounds (that's 15.6 kN or the equivalent of 7,000 horsepower) of thrust, and it uses 30 lb (14 kg) of fuel PER SECOND...........

30 January, 2013 - Help Fund And Get This Cool Robertsham CiTi
Robertsham CiTi
Robertsham CiTi vs Goldwing
Another interesting crowd-funding project on is the Robertsham CiTi. The CiTi comes from Robertsham, and looks like it is the result of the consummation between a Honda Goldwing and a Fiat 500. The resulting child is a three wheeler, as wide and long as a Goldwing, with the protection of a Fiat.

The Robertsham CiTi is a single seat motorcycle with a cage, i.e., a roof, windscreen and seat belt. So you don't need a helmet, or leathers, you can use your normal business clothes, step into the CiTi, put on the seat belt, and drive away. It's a bit like the ill-fated BMW C1, but with more protection...........

28 January, 2013 - MTT Coming Out With A New Turbine Hyper-Superbike
MTT 420
MTT logo
MTT, Marine Turbine Technologies, have already captured the imagination of many bikers with their turbine powered super-motorcycle, the MTT Y2K. Made famous by Jay Leno, just turning on the engine will set many biker's hearts pumping extra blood through the veins. Or should I say kerosene? With an incredible power (320 hp) and dazzling top speeds, the super-motorcycle is only surpassed by its price. Let's face it, even the most expensive MV Agusta will look like spare change when you outfit your motorcycle with a helicopter turbine engine.

MTT are in the process of finishing off their latest creation, a hyper-super bike (for lack of a better word). The new motorcycle will receive a Rolls-Royce C-20B gas turbine engine developing 420 hp!!! A top speed of 420 kph is expected, and you can expect also to outgun any 4 wheel cage in acceleration...........

Many folks dream of owning a special motorcycle but can't afford it. Cruisers, sports and even bobbers. The customization alone can cost you an arm & a leg, not to mention the motorcycle itself.

But it doesn't have to be so, not if you're not proud. Chinese Regal Raptor makes makes low priced motorcycles, from "normal" street motorcycles to cruisers and bobbers...........

4 October, 2012 - Intermot2012: Horex - The German Muscle Motorcycle
Horex VR6 Roadster
Horex logo
When the Horex was announced in 2010 in Germany, I was a bit sceptical. In the present day fuel and economical crisis, developing a new brand and motorcycle that has an enormous engine, and therefore fuel consumption, was in IMHO the wrong moment. I would have thought that any new manufacturer would go electric, or maybe hydrogen. But in this gutsy move Horex announced their first motorcycle using a 6 cylinder engine with a total of 1200cc.

The 6 cylinders are in V shape, but also inline, making this special design named VR. Their first, and so far only, model is a roadster, the Horex VR6, Roadster. So I decided to pay them a quick visit at the Intermot motorcycle exhibition......

Gibbs Quadski Beach
Water and motorcycles don't really mix, do they? You try to avoid riding in the rain, you take care when washing your bike, and the last thing on your mind is riding your motorcycle into the sea. Unless you are desperate of course. Or if you've got the latest GIBBS Sports Amphibian vehicle.

Called the Quadski, the latest piece of innovative engineering from GIBBS is a combination of a motorcycle, a quad and a jetski. The Quadski is powered by a BMW K1300 engine (the motorcycle part), it has 4 wheels (the quad part) and it rides on water (the jetski part). They decided for BMW engine because of reliability.

The Quadski will give you speeds of around 50 miles per hour (72 kph), both on land and water. ......

Hungarian Wooden Motorcycle
Amazing. Istvan Puskas, a 52 year old tractor driver in a small town close to Budapest, Hungary made his own motorcycle from scratch. So far nothing special, many people have done it before him.

But what makes this motorcycle special, is that it is made out of wood. Totally from wood, apart from the engine and some other important parts. Even the wheel is made out of wood, apart from the tire.....

Reaching 50 years of age is a milestone for any human being, but for a motorcycle, it is an exceptional occasion. That is why the Impala club of Spain decided to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their darling motorcycle in style.

Montesa is an old Spanish motorcycle manufacturer who got taken over by Honda, to become Honda Spain (but trading under the name Honda Montesa). As an interesting side note, one of their racers who made the name Montesa famous was one Bulto, who later went on and created Bultaco......

18 May, 2012 - Making Something Out Of Nothing: Post Modern Motorcycles
Post Modern Motorcycles: Junk Mail
Post Modern Motorcycles: Dear John
The Honda CT110 is one of those reliable motorcycle you can see riding around the country side, clocking up many miles. Used not only by people who want a low cost and reliable transportation, but often used by organizations like the Post Office (in Australia and New Zealand it's called a "Postie Bike")..

Manufacturing started in 1980, and the motorcycle is still being made today. 4 stroke and air cooled, it's very reliable. But it's bland. Very bland. The bike almost can't be seen, that is how bland it is.

Until Melbourne, Australia based Post Modern Motorcycles got their hands on them. These guys customize the "bland" motorcycles into something more exciting. Not that you'll be able to race them, but at the very least you'll be able to ride to your local watering hole without feeling ashamed.

Despite tropical downpours and heavy winds, I managed to ride my motorcycle to the very first Balneo Cafe Racer event of Dieppe, a weekend long cafe racer exhibition, races, parades and demonstrations.

I managed to stay for 2 hours, and then totally soaked, I headed back home, not to return, but I did manage to make some photos of these amazing motorcycles and people.

Here are 37 photos of motorcycles, people and the area.


30 April, 2012 - Unique Ferrari Motorcycle Sold
Ferrari 900 Motorcycle
Ferrari does not make motorcycles as we well know, despite the fact that Enzo Ferrari started his career racing motorcycles. David Kay, a British engineer, decided to make a Ferrari motorcycle to honor the brand, and in 1990 got an official permission by the Ferrari company. So in fact, this is the only "official" Ferrari motorcycle. There are several custom made motorcycles out there that have Ferrari written on them, but they are not recognized by the Italian manufacturer.

Kay's Ferrari 900, a 900 cc engine producing 105 hp at 8800 rpm, allowing the biker to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds, and a top speed of 160 mph, went up for auction last weekend at Bonhams.

The aluminium motorcycle, weighing only 172 kg was sold to a private, and unidentified, buyer for UK£85,000.

What do you do when you have a Vespa 50 scooter lying around doing nothing, and a spare Yamaha FZR600 engine gathering dust? One is a 50cc scooter, the other a powerful 600cc motorcycle engine...

That's a dilemma that someone in Italy had, and he solved it by taking the Yamaha engine and wrapping the Vespa scooter around it. Mind you, it's not a static scootBike, but it really works, just have a look at the video below.

7 March, 2012 - Suzuki Nuda Concept - Take 2 - Add A Canopy
Suzuki Crossbow Canopy Concept
English designer Phil Pauley redesigned the incredible Suzuki Nuda concept presented in 1986 in Tokyo. He added a canopy, and called the new motorcycle the Crossbow Canopy Concept.

Although it has some good points, it's not a practical motorcycle. But it does look great, and should do good in the movies...


15 February, 2012 - TRT: The Tilting Harley-Davidson Motorcycle
TRT Harley
TRT Harley
Jim wanted a nice trike, and wanted it to be Harley-Davidson motorcycle based. He teamed up with Too Kool Cycles, and made this funky trike, but with a twist...

Instead of putting the third wheel in the back, he put it in the front. And to make the trike act more like a motorcycle, the front wheels tilt when you lean it into a curve. It'll angle up to 25°.

What's even nicer, he's gone into business. He is planning to sell the TRT as a kit for late model Harley-Davidson Tourer models.


12 January, 2012 - Get Your Own Scale Model Vintage Motorcycle
Montesa Impala 175 Sport Scale Model
Video clip
There's a company in Spain that make exact replicas of classic vintage motorcycles, scaled down to 1:5 and 1:9. These incredibly detailed models use the same materials found on the original motorcycles, and not only do all parts move, but actually work (except the engine).

So when you press the brakes, the wheels stop spinning. Have a look at the video, the scale models are truly impressive .... but... very expensive. Most are one-off, and even the "mass" produced one runs into 4 digits.

But if you're a fan... what's money?


4 January, 2012 - HDX3 - Mobility Scooter, The Italian Way
HDX3 Mobility Scooter
Just because you are disabled and want to ride a motorcycle or scooter, doesn't lean that the scooter has to look like crap....

A company in Italy has designed a really nice package for disabled bikers; called the HDX3, it's a scooter based on the popular Honda SH 125 with an electrically, and remote, operated loading platform for wheelchair.

They plan to sell the scooter for an affordable price. Looks good...


28 November, 2011 - 32 Photos Of John Deere Motorcycles
John Deere BMW Motorcycle
John Deere logo
The John Deere colors are probably one of the most recognizable colors in the world. John Deere agricultural equipment can be found in any part of the globe, so the green and yellow is something many people immediately identify as John Deere.

So it's no surprise that many motorcycle owners customize their bike in John Deere's colors. We've showed a few customized motorcycles in John Deere colors in the past, but here's a much bigger list, 32 photos (some are of the same motorcycle).

It's not only Harley-Davidson, but BMW, Yamaha, Moto Guzzi, Kawasaki, Boss Hoss and even a diesel motorcycle that are "victim" of the John Deere craze.

Ecological, fun and reasonably expensive, one person wanted more. He contacted the car customizer, Carium, and had the e-Solex customized.

Joey Ruiter set out to redesign the motorcycle. He stripped off all the things that make a motorcycle interesting, and made it a means of transportation. He placed an electric engine in the motorcycle, giving it a 90 miles range. But you can rest ... it's just a design, not meant to be taken in to production. In fact, you can admire this "stealth" motorcycles in the Grand Rapids Art Museum.

9 June, 2011 - Custom Solex - Yes Sir, They Do Customize Them
Solex Hubless
The French Solex, also known as VeloSolex, is an incredible vehicle. It's not a motorcycle, not even a moped, but it's not a bicycle either. Design way back in 1941, the PTW is timeless. There's even an electric version available today.

Here is one customization that, IMHO, is incredibly well done. A French guy made a hubless Solex.... wow..

For those of you who have to haul lots of stuff around, you know that a pick-up truck not only is great vehicle, but it looks good. But if you're into motorcycles and not cages, then you might think you're out of options.

However, in Asia, motorcycle pick-ups (or are they called Pick-up Motorcycles) are as common as their cage counterparts in North America. No matter if you're transporting cargo or people, there's a motorcycle for it.

Here are 45 examples of motorcycle pick-ups.

17 November, 2010 - Motorcycles and Go-Karts
Hayabusa Go Kart
Go-karts have small and light frames, and take small engines to power them at high speeds.

So what's the tie-up between the two companies. Do you know?

The vehicle comes in 2, 4 or handicapped version, and even has an onboard air-conditioning unit.

Spikes on a motorcycle
With a motorcycle like that, who needs guns....

Spikes and enormous engine.... :-(


11 August, 2008 - Would You Spend US$300 K For This Motorcycle?
OCC Shelby GT500 Chopper motorcycle
On eBay at this moment you'll find a OCC produced motorcycle for sale. It's the Shelby Cobra chopper.

Is any motorcycle worth US$300,000? Maybe for a special technology one, like the turbine driven motorcycle, the MT Y2K, but for a chopper?


5 August, 2008 - Iranian Transformer Motorcycle
The Magic Tricycle
Here's a design produced by an Iranian student for an international competition. It's a trike/car that transforms itself into a motorcycle.

4 August, 2008 - Cheap Dodge Tomahawk Motorcycle
Replica Tomahawk
Have you always dreamed of owning the Dodge Tomahawk motorcycle, but the US$ 550,000 is just a tad too steep for you?

You can now own one for only US$1400! That's right, 1398 dollars and it's yours. But you don't get a V10, 8 liter Viper engine; You do get a 150 cc engine, AND a scooter transmission. There you go... have fun!


1 August, 2008 - Very Pimped Out Motorcycle
Pimped out motorcycle
Talk about pimping out a motorcycle.... this is one well decorated motorcycle.

It's so decorated that I can't even recognize the model.


8 July, 2008 - Fires And Motorcycles
BMW R1200RT Firexpress motorcycle
Being a firefighter, on one of those big, and noisy, red fire engines has always been a dream of millions of boys and girls.

But now, the dream is a wet one.... how about rescuing those people while riding this red BMW R1200RT from Firexpress?

Now that's a job and a half!

25 June, 2008 - One Spouse, 2 Kids: What To Ride?
Zeus sidecar motorcycle
Celtic motorcycle
Riding a motorcycle while you have a spouse and 2 kids is going to be difficult (unless you live in Asia, where you can fit 10 people on a bike). French company Side-Bike has the solution; ZEUS

Zeus is a 2 person side car, two wheel drive equipped with a 2 liter Peugeot engine developing more torque than you can shake a stick at. Add in the pillion, and your average family of 2 plus 1.2 kids can ride a motorcycle.

or you can use the hot-rod style trike, the Celtic. This time we're talking THREE wheel drive, and faster than the car equivalent. This motorcycle will hold 2 passengers, plus all their luggage.

10 June, 2008 - Learner Chopper Motorcycle
Hunter Spyder Motorcycle
What do you do in Australia when you want to ride a chopper motorcycle, but you don't have your full motorcycle permit?

The answer comes from Hunter Motorcycles. They produce a 250 cc based chopper that looks like the big ones, but allows you to ride on a learner permit.

And since it's a 250 cc, you're going to pay a lot less for fuel...


29 May, 2008 - NSU 2000 Bison: World’s Biggest Cylinder Motorcycle
NSU Bison 200
Kick starting a 700 cc motorcycle engine is not for the faint-hearted, or the featherweights....

So imagine trying to kick start a 2,000 cc single cylinder engine. And in the NSU Bison 2000 that's exactly what you need to do, since there's no starter. But it's a record!!!


1 May, 2008 - Bugatti Motorcycle
Bugatti T72A motorcycle

24 April, 2008 - Ecosse Spirit: Frameless Motorcycle
