Indian Chieftain Elite

Indian Motorcycles are as old as the sport itself. First produced in 1901, Indian bikes had some legendary riders including Steve McQueen. After spending a day in the saddle of the brand new Chieftain Elite in not-so-sunny San Diego, we can see why.

Colin Furze might have done it first, but Hoversurf actually plans on producing its drone-like hovering motorbike. The single-seat Scorpion-3 flying platform could also be used as a kind of taxi or to transport goods, but mostly it just looks like dangerous fun.

2017 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled

2017 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled

An accessible off-roader. The Desert Sled has the same 803cc 75hp engine found in all Scramblers, but it’s surrounded by all new parts, including longer forks and suspension, a reinforced frame and Pirelli tires custom made for the bike. Drops 3/2017 for about $11,400.

LEGO BMW R60/2 Concept

LEGO BMW R60/2 Concept

LEGO’s new BMW R 1200 GS set is boss, but we think this proposal for a 1967 R60/2 has the potential to be even better. Designed by LEGO Ideas member maximecheng03, it’s a tad skinnier than the actual bike, but we’re pretty sure LEGO can easily fix that.
