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.
They're far better known for the sports and race cars, but believe it or not, Lotus can come up with a pretty slick two-wheeler, as well. The Lotus C-01 Motorcycle is a perfect example. Designed by Daniel Simon of Bugatti and Tron: Legacy fame, this ultra-limited bike (only 100 are being made) features a slick, lightweight body, a two-cylinder, four-stroke 1,195cc engine putting out 200 horsepower, and paired with a six-gear transmission. While we don't have performance numbers yet, considering it weighs under 400 pounds, we're expecting it to be really, really fast.
Most people buying a Bimmer bike aren't overly concerned with customization. But we're guessing most of them aren't buying the BMW R NineT Motorcycle. This stripped-down roadster is powered by a 2-cylinder 4-stroke flat twin engine producing 110 hp and a top speed of over 125 mph. Other features include standard ABS, an upside-down front fork and BMW Motorrad Paralever rear, a simple speedometer and rev counter complemented by a multifunction display, and the ability to change everything from the wheels to the rear frame.
