Behold: the Ethec Electric Motorcycle – designed by 12 engineering students from ETH Zurich and the Zurich University of the Arts with a 15kWh battery, front and rear hub motors and a sophisticated air and oil cooling system that combine to provide 67bhp and a 400km range.


The Royal Enfield WD/RE (aka the ‘Flying Flea’) saw action during WW2 when it was designed to be dropped behind enemy lines via glider.

This is the Pegasus 500 Classic – a remake by the original manufacture which ups the engine capacity from 125cc to a 499cc parallel twin motor.

1000 replicas (complete with 1940s style canvas saddlebags) will go on sale later this year available in ‘Service Brown’ or ‘Olive Drab Green’


Behold: the Yamaha Motodroid – a mysterious AI-controlled ‘self driving’ motorcycle prototype that will debut later this month at the Tokyo Motor Show 2017.

No word yet regarding its ability to kill all humans.
