Doehmers Research Lab created this concept electric moped with an awesome retro-futuristic look. Its racer shape is optimized for aerodynamics and a whisper-quiet ride. Designer Torkel Dohmers says he took inspiration from the Honda SS50, melded with synthesizer aesthetics. We would love to see this go into production.

Japanese company ICOMA has created an electric moped that folds down into a package that can be carried and stored under a desk or in a closet. It measures just 27.5″ x 26.7″ x 10″ when folded, but opens up to roughly double that size for riding. Its Li-Po battery provides up to 31 miles of range, with a top speed of 25 mph.

Kuma Films captured some awesome footage of Anpei Yo, an extremely agile and well-balanced moped rider as he worked his way around the handlebars and seat of his spinning bike. We’re not sure he even needs a front wheel.

A moped rider is sitting a bit too far forward when an 18-wheeler has a little trouble making the turn. We’re guessing this guy had to go change his underwear immediately. (Thanks Ray!)

This moped rider not only hit the highway at 85 mph – without a helmet, he does it lying down, with his face towards the ground. We’re amazed the stunt ended without tragedy.
