Lazareth LM 847: The 470-horsepower, tilting 4-wheel motorcycle you've been waiting for

Can motorcycles undergo meiosis? If so, Ludovic Lazareth's LM 847 looks like it's got stuck in the process of cell division. Built around a gigantic, 4.7-liter Maserati V8 engine, this terrifying tilting quad bike picks up where the Dodge Tomahawk left off, with four single-sided swingarms, rim-mounted brakes, dual hub-centre steering and a bunch of other crazy touches. Oh, and 470-odd horsepower tearing up the bitumen through a single-speed viscous clutch automatic transmission.Read More

William Shatner-designed Rivet motorcycle is set to stun

We've seen some pretty eye-catching motorcycles in recent months, including a Tron light cycle replica, the exotic Feline One, and the quirky Dryvtech 2x2x2. That said, all of those bikes have one glaring shortcoming – none of them were co-designed by William Shatner. The actor who brought us the character of Captain James T. Kirk is, however, one of the creative forces behind the limited-edition Rivet. And judging by what he's told us, he's pretty proud of it. Read More
