This seems to be the trend those days, although in this case the Warhole art did more damage to the Italian designed car than the Italian protesters, so it could be an act of revenge.  ;)

I have a lot of respect for Eric Buell's ability to design and build motorcycles. I wish him success with this project, in the past he has hitched his wagon to entities that were not entirely supportive or nurturing to his endeavors..

@ 915: Singapore has a nice solution to stupid - public caning. It's very educational and you are a lot smarter afterward.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caning_in_Singapore#:~:text=They%20include%20the%20following%3A,total%20number%20of%20offences%20committed.
After the caning, a shop vac, sponge, a bucket of soapy water, some towels to dry the car off with, some clean rags and a can of carnauba wax are in order. The Singapore cop can stand by as "quality control" until the job is done right.

Marching about with signs and yelling loud is demonstrating. Destruction of someone's personal property is vandalism. It's not that hard a concept.
A trifecta of Pre-Unit Bullets: a Red Deluxe 500, a Green Standard 500, and a Black ES 350.

Singapore, isnt it the place where you get fined 50$ or so for spitting a chewing gum on the street? I'm surprised their streets are not plastered full with them.

Motorbikes have come on large amounts over the most recent five years. Right now, Cruiser computer based intelligence is a high competitor for the following huge development for modern bikes. Self-learning innovation is as of now a tremendous piece of our lives. Ventures, for example, medical care and online business extraordinarily benefit from this innovation - and the cruiser business is no special case.

Are you sure about that?

Here is a very retro electric scooter design, although I am not too sure about the looks of the large instrument pod sitting on top of the steering stem. https://thepack.news/designer-piotr-krzyczkowski-hits-the-e-mobility-market-with-his-projects/

Now this is the way to design a battery system that can be easily removed and then transported to a different location for both storage and charging. The battery pack not only has an integrated 600 watt charger and a 55 watt heater but the scooter also has its own integrated fold-out handcart to move the entire battery pack around. Check out the last four pictures in this new-startup scooter article:  https://thepack.news/silence-is-the-first-brand-for-new-belgian-startup-vr-mobility/

That actually doesn't look that bad and the battery is well hidden. There might be some practical use to it in the cities. If it succeeds may depend on the operator who provides the rental service. Privately I would definitely not want one, an awful lot of other things you can buy for that amount of cash.

How about a big engine in a bicycle frame? Useless but interesting.

I found this video interesting regarding the Brammo Empulse/Victory TT motorcycle, which includes information regarding the brand's history. Attached are a couple of photos of when their first model was being sold at Best Buy and a photo of a prototype that was displayed at Scuderia West in San Francisco, which is now a Royal Enfield dealer. In 2010 I pre-ordered an Empulse like the one in the photo, but when it didn't arrive after two years, I gave up and bought a 2012 Zero instead.
