Trying Out A 3D Scanner That Makes Helmets Custom-Moulded To Your Head

It’s not hard to find a badass-looking helmet for your adrenaline-fuelled hobbies. The trick is finding one that fits correctly. For decades, that’s meant buying a standard (S/M/L) size lid and rearranging the padding to conform to your noggin. Recently, I got to try out a much better way.


Beautiful Custom Motorbike Is Actually A 360-Degree Security Camera

This gorgeous custom motorbike began its life as an utterly mundane Honda P25, a fuel-efficient 1960s scooter. But motorcycle artisan Chicara Nagata turned it into a sweeping sculpture with a social-commentary twist: the tiny bike carries four infrared security cameras in its frame, built at the behest of a Japanese security company.


This Electric Motorcycle Has Storage Space Instead Of A Petrol Tank

Unless you’re on some giant Harley designed for a long cruise across the country, a backpack is probably the most storage room you’ve got on a motorcycle. But besides the savings on fuel, an electric motorcycle has other advantages, like a giant hole where the petrol tank and engine used to be — which this bike, the Feddz, repurposes as built-in storage.


Awesome Dad Built An Even More Awesome Batpod Motorcycle For His Kids

There’s already a lot of responsibilities in being a parent. You gotta make sure your kids are fed. Make sure they bathe. Make sure they’re safe. And make sure they don’t become a menace to society. There’s only one requirement in becoming an awesome parent though and it’s this: build your kids an awesome Batpod motorcycle they can ride around.


Gorgeous Lotus C-01 Bike Is Half Retro, Half Tron, Full Awesome

Legendary car maker Lotus has produced a long line of exotic sports cars as beautiful as they are fast, but never motorcycles. Until now, that is. The company’s first foray into two-wheeled transportation is a work of art — the Lotus Motorcycle C-01.


NSW Is The First State To Allow Motorbikes To Move Past Cars In Traffic

Lane splitting is a controversial topic. If you ride a bike, it’s great — it’s convenient, helps clear traffic congestion, and it’s (relatively) safe. If you’re in a car, stuck in gridlock, seeing a leathered-up guy or girl on a slick motorcycle zip past your window up to the traffic lights can be aggravating. The NSW Government is on the side of two wheels, though — it will allow motorcyclists to legally lane-filter across the state from July onwards.


Why Does Lotus' First Motorbike Look Like A Tron Lightcycle?

If you feel riding a motorbike is one of the more terrifying road-bound activities one can engage in, then the lightcycle battles from Tron probably didn’t do much to calm those fears. Not much at all. Those lightcycles did look super slick, though, which is why it comes as no surprise that a automotive business like Lotus would use it as inspiration for its first foray into the two-wheeled vehicle market.


This Diesel-Powered Scooter Packs More Utility Than A Swiss Army Knife

If I started telling you about a new all-wheel-drive, turbo diesel-powered off-roader, you’d probably think I was talking about a 4×4 truck or SUV, right? Wrong. Check out the RNT, a concept from Indian motorcycle company Hero that could be the only back-country survival tool a motorcycle adventurer would ever need.


Honda Grom: City Commutes Should Always Be This Fun

There’s no bit of technology that made me happier last year than the brand new Honda Grom motorcycle. Is it cheating that it’s not strictly a gadget? I don’t care. Even if the Grom still breaks fast on old-fashioned dino juice, its diminutive size paired with street legality changed the way I think about city transit and my personal motive needs.


World's Most Powerful Electric Motorcycle Looks Like The Future

This brawny futuristic mini tank on two wheels is supposedly the world’s most powerful electric motorcycle. The battery-powered beast can re-charge its 12.8kWh juice pack in 30 minutes and has the power of a 1000cc motorcycle. Called the Voxan Wattman, the bike can hit 0-60mph in less than 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of over 100mph. Vroom freaking vroom.
