Surely this is witchcraft?

The world's first 3D printed motorcycle

IT'S electric, uses a titanium-alloy frame and weighs only 35kg according aeronautics giant Airbus, the firm behind the world's first 3D printed motorcycle. Fifty are to be made costing €50,000 each. 

Fifty grand for a print-out? It's five pence a sheet at the library.

Rossi meets Motobot

Has The Doctor met his mechanised match?

REMEMBER Yamaha’s R1M-riding robot? Yamaha has been quiet about the project since the start of the year but this new video has just emerged showing Valentino Rossi meeting the Motobot for the first time.

This new video tells us a couple of things. Firstly, ...  Continue reading

 

HJC helmet vs hydraulic press

Because why not?

NO, this HJC helmet isn't being crushed as part of a rigorous testing regime by Snell or Sharp - it's being destroyed purely to see what a helmet looks like when it's crushed in a hydraulic press because watching objects get crushed is apparently a thing now, judging from the popularity ...  Continue reading

Up close and personal with Valentino Rossi

Forthcoming web series promises to lift the lid on the life of Rossi

THIS is the trailer for 'The Doctor' - a forthcoming five-part web series all about Valentino Rossi.

The slick-looking Monster Energy-produced series promises to peel back the layers on the nine-time world champion, thanks to the Rossi telling his story along with those closest to him, including his dad and friend Uccio.

The Honda MSX125 with an 1199 Panigale engine

There is no possibility this is not a brilliant idea

IS it real? We hope so. 

The video was posted on a Thai YouTube channel with the simple message: 'Honda MSX125 with Ducati 1199 Panigale engine.' 

For once, we don't want the first test ride. 

You can never see too many wheelie fails

Especially 250cc cruiser wheelie fails

THE first rule of the Cool 250 Cruiser Wheelie Club is there are no members of the Cool 250 Cruiser Wheelie Club.  

Road rage. America. Guns. Of course.

Oh, and throw idiots into the mix as well

IT SEEMS that two things are fast becoming standard kit for American road users – cameras and guns.

Not long ago we saw what happens when the two are combined and here we’ve got another example.

We start with a group of riders/squids going a tad too ...  Continue reading

 

Launch. Control?

'That's not what it's supposed to do'

WE can't help but feel sorry for drag racer Brett Ghedina because after flipping his bike in front of the spectators at Perth Motorplex, the commentator then subjects him to a replay on the massive screen behind the start line before he presumably hobbles off to be along with his damaged pride.

Video: Three-wheeled leaning Z1000

Mullholland Highway vs Kawasaki reverse trike

YAMAHA keeps threatening to build a tilting three-wheeler with a proper engine, but these chaps have already done it.

US firm Tremoto puts its three-wheeled Kawasaki Z1000 to the test of LA’s Mullholland Highway and its infamous Snake Pass in a video posted on YouTube.

A ...  Continue reading

 

Road rage London-style
