Thrive Yamaha XS650 Motorcycle

We've seen vehicle designed influenced by a lot of different things — but wood-burning stoves? Now that's new. And that's also the inspiration behind this Thrive Yamaha XS650 Motorcycle. Based on a classic 1968 Yamaha XS650, this updated version features a spartan color scheme of black, grey, brass, and brown, a completely overhauled engine, hand-fabricated custom bodywork, a slightly lowered front end, a pair of leather belts under the battery box for holding a shirt or jacket, and even a custom bag containing all the tools needed to maintain the bike.

  • Yamaha PES1 Concept Motorcycle

    Ahead of the Tokyo Motor Show this year, the purveyors of all things two-wheeled have announced a slew of exciting-looking vehicles — among them the Yamaha PES1 Concept Motorcycle ($TBA). This electric motorcycle is powered by their Yamaha Smart Power Module, a brushless DC motor with an easily-replaceable lithium-ion battery pack. Ideal for jetting around town (and avoiding trips to the pump), this street sport bike features a monocoque structure, manually-shiftable automatic transmission, and a number of smartphone integration capabilities. While just a concept, it clearly illustrates the direction this industry-leader plans to take as it ventures into electronic vehicles.

  • Ducati Monster 1200 Motorcycle

    If you're looking for a bike that's built to just go fast — no frills, nothing extra — you need to check out the Ducati Monster 1200 Motorcycle ($16,000), their third-generation fairing-less bike. Powered by their hot Testastretta motor, a twin cylinder engine producing 145 horsepower and 92 pound-feet of torque, this thing is made to tear up the streets. Weighing just over 400 pounds, and featuring eight-level traction control, three-level ABS, and a three-level ride-by-wire throttle, it's also made to handle. The bike comes in two sporty paint schemes, a red frame with black wheels, and a white and bronze frame.
