Indian Motorcycles teamed up with sports eyewear maker 100% to create a special edition of its FTR bike. In addition to a 120 hp V-twin engine, it rocks a Blue Candy carbon fiber tank, headlight nacelle, seat cowl, and front fender and a white powder coat frame. It also packs Öhlins front forks, black-finished titanium Akrapovič exhaust, and lots of special details.
This unique motorcycle-shaped decanter from The Wine Savant is handmade by blowing and bending borosilicate Pyrex glass, using similar techniques to making laboratory glassware. It measures 14.5″ long and holds 750 ml of spirits. It’s a special gift for motorcycle, whiskey, and wine lovers.
Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, Tom Hardy, Michael Shannon, and Norm Reedus star in this fictional movie about the members of a 1960s motorcycle club and the drama that ensues as the club becomes increasingly violent. Written and directed by Jeff Nichols (Midnight Special, Mud), The Bikeriders rolls into theaters on 12.1.2023.
Pizza restaurants strive to deliver your pizza while it’s hot, but that’s not always possible. Colin Furze came up with an overengineered solution to the problem. Rather than insulating already-cooked pizzas, his Suzuki pizza delivery motorcycle has a built-in oven to cook pizzas while in transit. He built the oven from scratch using sheet metal and hydroforming.
Make It Extreme has a thing for building unique single-passenger vehicles. Their latest creation is a motorized bike that rolls on a single tread. It’s powered by what appears to be a moped engine. The motor is rigged up to spin a custom-milled drive wheel that pulls the tread extracted from a car tire along a set of rollers. It’s even equipped with a full suspension.
Petrol Vibes makes metal wall art based on the silhouettes of sports cars and motorcycles. In addition to classics like the Ferrari 250 GTO and C2 Corvette, they can fabricate custom designs. Each is made from laser-cut 2mm steel and comes in sizes from 31″ to 55″ wide.
Builder Thor Drake of See See Motorcycles wanted the freedom to cook his own meals while traveling on his bike. So he teamed up with Indian Motorcycles and Traeger Grills to create a custom sidecar with a fully-operational Ironwood 885 pellet grill for campsite cookouts wherever his Springfield Dark Horse takes him.
This sweet flat-pack wood model kit from Robotime looks like a fat-cat cruiser motorcycle. The 420-piece, 10.6″ long wooden motorcycle features a working front suspension, steering, wheels that spin, and a spring-wound drive mechanism. Expect a build time of around 4 to 5 hours.
Indian Motorcycle’s evolution of the Chief keeps wowing us. The 2023 Sport Chief is an aggressive V-Twin performance cruiser with impeccable styling, lots of options, and top components, including Fox shocks, KYB inverted front forks, Dual-Disc Brembo Brakes, and a 4” Ride Command touchscreen.
After seeing the video by The Q in which he split the rear wheel of his bicycle in half, Sean Kerr of Bikes and Beards wanted to try the same with a motorcycle. So he and his buddy Craig got to work chopping up the rear wheel of a Honda CBR 250R to replicate the idea. It doesn’t exactly look like the smoothest ride, though.
The Veteran Sherman Max is a powerful electric unicycle that can hit speeds up to 45 mph thanks to its 2800-watt motor. The appropriately-named Joseph Sherman has put nearly 10,000 miles on his already, and shows us just how quick this thing is with some reverse POV video footage. Now, watch him race a train. (Thanks, Orion!)
Over the years, there have been numerous efforts to build bikes, motorcycles, and mopeds that can fold up for ease of transport. Bikes and Beards got their hands on a couple of folding electric two-wheelers to test out how easily they open, their weight capacity, speed, and range. That tiny Himo H1 is ridiculous.
So many choices. That’s what Indian Motorcycle is throwing at bikers with its largest ever model year lineup. From Scout to Pursuit to an all-new Challenger Elite, the American maker has a 2023 model for any rider, plus limited editions, a slew of lineup enhancements, and the introduction of the FTR Sport.
After taking a soaking in a water gun fight, maker Handy Geng decided he and his kids needed to step up their game. So he got to work building a ridiculous motorcycle that looks like a fighter jet and loaded it with high-power water guns and wing gunner seats for his kids. The other children don’t stand a chance.
The 1 is a bespoke electric motorcycle. Built from the ground up – and looking like nothing that’s come before – the visionary design is a revolutionary direction for the legacy Curtiss Motorcycle Company. The short fil The Opposite of Death documents the $83,333+ dream machine’s birth, giving us lots to drool over.
When engineers want to test a vehicle’s suspension, they use a variety of methods, including test tracks, hydraulic posts, and treadmills. Brick Technology built a miniature version of the treadmill test using LEGO Technic components and used it to see how different motorcycle suspension setups absorb shocks.
The Razor RSF350 is a pint-size electric motorbike for kids. But with a top speed of 14 mph (9 mph with an adult riding it), it’s not exactly fast. JoelCreates figured it could use a few more horsepower, so he outfitted it with an overpowered battery pack and motor controllers. Then, he put his mini-mini to the test in a drag race.
Engineer Eduard Luzyanin created this wild ride that combines a motorcycle and a tank. The Hamyak is a single-seat vehicle that’s propelled by a rolling track. It can reach speeds of 27mph, though, without suspension or steering, you’re probably going to want to go slower. EXROADmedia has video footage of this oddity in action.
“It’s incredibly stupid, hard to ride…” We’ve always wondered who those ridiculous mini motorcycles were for, but that didn’t stop maker Peter Sripol and his brother from building their own. Their custom-made micro bike is powered by an electric motor with body made from an ammo can that can still hold ammunition.
Indian Motorcycle revs up the aggressive style of the Scout with the 2022 Scout Rogue and Scout Rogue Sixty. Loaded with performance-enhancing features, Scout Rogue sports a quarter fairing, mini ape-hanger handlebars, blacked-out fenders, a 19-inch front wheel, and powertrains that make loads of low-end torque.
Watch an artist make this incredibly precise model of a Suzuki GSX 1300R Hayabusa motorcycle entirely out of paper and glue. Every tiny detail is there, from the engine to the dashboard gauges to the drive chain. It’s just one of several intricate papercraft models you can find on the Paper Modelling YouTube channel.
Indian Motorcycle and Jack Daniel’s reveal their sixth motorcycle collab. This special Indian Challenger Dark Horse pays tribute to JD’s rye whiskey with Rye Metallic paint, gold and green accents, and a numbered badge. Meticulously detailed down to the rear fender message: “Drive Responsibly. Bottles and Throttles Don’t Mix.”
