    The great Spanish names of Ossa, Bultaco, and Montesa have gone, but Derbi remains—albeit as a subsidiary of Italian giant Piaggio. Most Derbi motorcycles are sub-125 cc city bikes, but the Mulhacén 659 is an interesting crack at the burgeoning scrambler market. It’s powered by… Read more »

    1979 Porsche Motorcycle Concept

  • Chris Hunter Concept Motorcycles ,

    When the words ‘Porsche’ and ‘motorcycle’ are mentioned in the same sentence, it’s usually in connection with Harley-Davidson: first the abortive Nova project of the 80s, then the VR1000 racer in the 90s, and finally the Revolution engine that appeared in the V-Rod in 2001.… Read more »

    Amir Glinik’s Ferrari Motorcycle

  • Chris Hunter Concept Motorcycles ,,

    There’s been a ‘Ferrari motorcycle’ before, but the story was only moderately interesting. This, however, is in another league: it’s the brainchild of a ridiculously talented 3D computer designer called Amir Glinik. And it’s just perfect.
