Most bikes see a design refresh once every few years, so when a company announces a model sporting its first new design in decades, it's worth taking notice. The 2015 Indian Scout Motorcycle is the first all-new Scout in over 70 years, updating the classic "rigid triangle" design with a modern cast aluminum frame that helps to make it the lightest bike in its class. Power comes from a liquid-cooled, 1133cc V-twin engine cranking out 100 hp, which is coupled with a six-speed overdrive transmission and standard ABS. Prepare to hop into the solo tan leather bucket seat later this year.
Most survival packs include plenty of stuff to help you ride out the worst of times — except for transportation. Fortunately, the Motoped Survival Bike has you covered. Powered by a 4-stroke engine, the bike gets excellent gas mileage, and uses downhill mountain bike parts mounted to a custom frame and swing arm for rugged reliability. As for the survival part? Well, it also comes outfitted with a crossbow, one-gallon gas pack, a survival shovel, a tomahawk, a harpoon, a fixed blade saw, a lighting system, carabiners and climbing rope, a flashlight, a multifunction knife/light, two multi-tools, a neck knife, and a bike mount for that most versatile of tools, your smartphone.
Calling it a motorcycle is a little disingenuous, since it's really a roadster — but with only three wheels, the Polaris Slingshot Motorcycle is actually a bit of both. Powered by a 2.4L engine, this two-seat open-air vehicle sits just inches off the ground, with a 5-speed manual transmission and lightweight polymer body panels to create an exhilarating motoring experience. You might have to get your motorcycle license to drive it — depending on local laws, — but the first time you round a corner at speed, it'll be well worth the effort.
