New car firm shows interest in bikes too

Qoros patents new electric moped

NORMALLY we wouldn’t get terribly excited about an electric moped but this as-yet-unreleased design comes from a new firm that’s already making waves in the car industry.

Qoros might not be a name you’re familiar with. The firm has yet to start selling cars in Europe, although that will change soon. But the reason ...  Continue reading

750cc 2-stroke looks mean in green

Details are scarce on this bike. It was completely renovated in Germany by TGS Motorcycles last year. It’s based on a ’74 Kawasaki H2 and looks absolutely stunning. MASSIVE amounts of want.
