Not all motorcycles are made for the road. Just take the Triumph Tiger Explorer XC Motorcycle, for example. In addition to a strong 1215cc three-cylinder engine, this highly-capable bike offers a host of off-road features, including switchable ABS, traction control, fog lights, hand guards, engine protection bars, a sump guard, a 12V power socket for powering a GPS or heated clothing, a payload of almost 500 lbs., and unique spoked wheels. Sure, you could elect to ride it only on the road, but where's the fun in that?
If you're ready to ditch your car and move to something with a couple fewer wheels, but aren't quite ready to leave behind the comfort of a driver's seat, then maybe you need the Honda NM4 Concept Motorcycle. Calling the new seating configuration the cockpit position, an adjustable backrest is designed to give the rider more of a comfortable riding experience — while also easing the transition from car to bike. Available in two models, either a black or a white variation, each one comes powered by a 745-cc two-cylinder engine with a dual-clutch transmission. Additional details including horsepower are limited, but we do know that Honda plans to put something like the concept into production in the near future.
Straddling the line between usable product and art, the Bandit9 Eve Motorcycle is among the most beautiful two-wheelers we've ever seen. Outfitted in nearly all chrome — pretty much everything but the tires, grips, and seat — this sleek ride is based on a 1967 Honda SS, can be built with engines ranging from 90-125cc, and is absolutely guaranteed to draw as much attention as any bike you've ever ridden.
