10. B120 Wraith
American Confederate Motor Company introduced their new superbike «Wraith B120». The zest of new motorcycle is its futuristic look and nontypical tank position, which is under the engine. The price of «Wraith B120» is $50 000.
9. Red Bull Rider
Red Bull Rider motorbike came into public in 2010 on Red Bull X-fighters show in Detroit. Such interesting design is based on Red Bull logo. The motorcycle is fully functional and is used in various sales promotions.
37 y.o. designer Barend Massow Hemmes designed the motorcycle «Night Shadow». Its form resembles the Jaguar marque logo. The Night Shadow is the apple of Barend's eye. The eyes of jaguar glow in the dark. Though, to ride this bike with comfort you must be tall enough. But Barend's height is quite sufficient. The bike is equipped with 1200 ccm engine, but its maximum speed is just 80 km/h. Inconvenient seat and low speed make this creation rather showpiece, than real motorcycle.
7. Dodge Tomahawk
The Dodge Tomahawk was called the fastest, the coolest and the fanciest bike many times. No wonder, the bike has 500 horsepower and this is the most powerful motorcycle for today. The bike is equipped with 10-cylinder engine Viper V-10 with volume 8.3L. The length of motorcycle is more than 2.5 m, its width is approximately 70 cm and height - 90cm.
The cost of the motorcycle is $250,000 and you should be prepared to go to the expense of fuel, because the machine consumes pretty much of it.
6. Mach Ness Monster
Arlen Ness created metalic monster with gas-turbine draft and called it Mach Ness Monster. The frame of the bike is made of handworked sheets of aluminium. This beautiful motorcycle boggles the imagination. You can't ignore this bike! Arlen began the development of this conceptual moto after he saw the "turbine motorcycle" of Jay Leno. Arlen liked the idea, but he didn't like the price ($250,000). That's why he decided to make his own bike.
5. Hubless Motorcycle.
The developers of Amen Design and Engineering managed to design a completely new motorcycle with hubless wheels. Such wheels were noticed in concepts of different manufacturers (for example, Honda V4 Concept), but this is the first time, when such wheels are installed on real bike.
Absence of hubs and wheel disks does not affect bike's performance. This is fully functional motorcycle with a price of $150,000.
The Uno motorcycle is the best creation of Benjamin Gulak, an 27 y.o. inventor from Toronto. The frame is based on front part of Yamaha R1 sportbike. Strange, but there are 2 wheels installed on the Uno. Both wheels are positioned under seat on the distance of 5 cm.
The "personal transoprt of the future" is moved by two electromotors from wheel-chair. The maximum speed of 552 kg motorbike is 44 km/h, and battery's working resource is 2.5 hours.
People, who were lucky to ride this wonder think, that Uno is ready for production. This is a bike easy to handle even for a child.
