From the same guys who brought us some of the most fun track-day cars in recent memory, comes their first entry into the two-wheeled market, the Caterham Brutus 750 Motorcycle ($TBA). This bike, which they are describing as the "SUV of motorcycles" is meant to function equally well as a sport street bike, an off-road machine, and — with a few hours spent turning wrenches — a snowmobile. While relatively scant details have been released about the motor, it does promise nimble handling and an automatic transmission.
One of the most attractive parts of riding a motorcycle is standing out from the pack of minivans, subcompacts, and SUVs that dominate the roads — you want to look original, different, independent. And you'd be hard-pressed to find anything on two wheels that looks as distinct as the Bandit9 Nero MKII Motorcycle ($TBA). This completely custom ride is one of just nine models available, and looks so unique most people won't even understand what they're seeing. With a custom gas tank, rear cowl, handlebars, fork, and foot pegs, as well as the curved dual exhausts, exposed suspension, and completely matte black paint job, you're definitely bound to turn a few heads (and get a few jealous stares).
A proper bike shouldn't be confined to just riding on the roads — it should give you the kind of freedom your adventurous spirit needs. The BMW R 1200 Adventure Motorcycle ($15,000) has everything you need for excitement on the roads and off, with a flat-twin two-cylinder four-stroke engine producing 92 lb-ft of torque and 125 brake horsepower, rain and road drive modes, and a nearly eight-gallon fuel tank. Muscular styling, plenty of options to outfit it for nearly any excursion, and three available color versions (olive matte, racing blue metallic matte, and alpine white) let you go anywhere in absolute style.
