Owners of electric scooters know the plight of the urban commuter: what to do when you arrive at your destination, only to find that you need to charge up? You can either lug it up the stairs, or upgrade to the UItra Motor A2B Excel Electric Scooter ($TBA). This lightweight electric scooter packs Intelligent Dual Electric Power (iDEP) that lets you take the battery with you when you park, making the scooter immobile while saving you the hassle of schlepping the whole damn thing inside.
Sure, you can go to your local cycle shop and buy yourself a ride — but if you're looking for something truly unique, you'd do better picking up this DP Customs Mele Motorcycle ($19,000). Built by hand, this one-of-a-kind whip sports a 1000cc Ironhead motor producing 75 hp — quite a lot considering its minuscule curb weight — as well as a stretched frame, clip-on handlebars, a custom x-pipe exhaust, powdercoated wheels wrapped in Pirelli rubber, a three-piece rear wing, and an Uncrate-approved bright orange paint job.
It might look like a rendering — in fact, it probably is — but given the founders' bike-racing backgrounds, we have no doubt it will become reality soon enough. The BRD RedShift MX ($15,000) is an electric bike that's designed for MX2/Lites-class racing, yet still manages to be street legal. Features include 40 maximum hp, 12-inch fully adjustable front and rear suspension, a 21-inch front wheel and 19-inch rear, and a top speed of 80 mph.
No, it's not for sale, but this Moto-Mucci Honda CX500 Motorcycle ($TBA) was simply too cool not to share anyway. Based on a 1978 Honda CX500 Standard, this daily urban rider has been completely restored and rebuilt with a new exhaust, a custom seat, new tires, and gobs of new paint, and has survived both the rebuild process and being run over by a Mercedes SUV, which makes us think it'll be able to tackle the streets of Chicago just fine.
Deus continues its string of drool-worthy bike conversions with the Deus Bald Terrior 1200 Motorcycle ($TBA). Based on a Harley Sportster, the Bald Terrior features custom 19- and 18-inch wheel sets, brake calipers, and rotors, one-off inch clip-on bars, a Vance & Hines performance exhaust, a PM Super gas air filter, custom length Ikon rear dampers, a Daytona electric speedo, and a hard black chromed fork sliders.
