Nice fat tire - you can really get your 10 mile-per-hour lean on!

10mph?Some bitch at the DOT will want it to have a seat belt.  >:( And an aimable head light.  >:( And disk brakes.  >:( And ABS. >:(
The DOT required add-ons will probably not affect the top speed much. Maybe knock it back to 9mph?  ;)

Here is another future motorcycle for you. This one will be perfect when our roadways turn into just a collection of giant potholes.  ::)

I'm pretty sure Colin Furze has already perfected this technology.

Well, I suppose "perfected" isn't quite the right word...

A few modifications and it will be a great ground-effect lawn mower.  ;D

You are really going to love this version of your transportation future. The BICAR. This one developed by the Swiss. So you know it will be perfect and expensive. Probably not the best thing to be driving if you get into a dispute with someone driving an F150, though:  https://electricmotorcycles.news/the-bicar-a-new-innovative-swiss-urban-traffic-solution/

They can build what they want, if someone buys it is an all together another question.

I bet the Swiss will love it.  ;) Last night I had a nightmare about thousands of those things clogging a 4-lane freeway, all driving at  15 mph. Anyone happen to notice that the BICCAR's chassis seems to have quite a resemblance to those electric 3-wheel scooters made for mobility-challenged old folks?  :o

We shall see, we have now apparently people who burn other peoples cars or dash them or do some other damage. I'm sure you might heave read about it already, the news was all around the world.

So maybe if this thing is sold as extremely environmentaly friendly, the Swiss motorcyclist might be mandated to ride it, who know everything is possible those times.

       There is nothing new under the sun.

       This has been going on for years.

       And years. And years.

       And they get away with it.

       And do it again.

...if it had to be electric that is.

While you were posting that news, I was doing the exact same thing in a dedicated thread.  I guess great minds think alike and visit the same electric news forum.   ;)

I've just looked at the site you posted earlier Richard. This one looked somehow acceptable too as a racer, wouldn't mind trying it before turning too old for it.

It am not very happy that the press has declared all new bikes the likes of a Thruxton R to be retro bikes, just because they look good. That way you could call any new 911 Porsche a retro car and nobody would say that.
