Johammer Electric Motorcycle. Going Green In Pastel Colors.

I felt the urge to publish the Johammer Electric Motorcycle because of its very unusual aesthetics and setup, more than for its performance somewhat in the range of many of e-competitors.

Harley-Davidson Powered Toyota Prius.

I didn’t publish this feature on April’s fool day, so, I guarantee that this one-of-a-kind Harley—Davidson powered Toyota Prius really exists. Proof? It’s for sale on eBay (best offer at time of publication was $1375) although it’s no more running because of a massive breakdown… I understand that some don’t like hybrid electric cars. But […]

B-Rocket Concept Motorcycle.
