Marc Marquez is a three-time world champion motorcycle racer, but it takes a special kind of crazy to ride a high-powered racing sport bike up and down ski runs. Especially on the hill “that will rip open your pelvis like a book.”
Sportbikes always look like they’re made for mischief, but Honda’s working hard to put out small-displacement performance machines that are fun without being intimidatingly extreme. For 2016 the mid-range CBR500R is lighter and apparently even easier to get on and go.
Some maniacs squeezed the 600cc engine from a Honda CBR sport bike into a dinky three-wheeled rickshaw taxi. Add a flamethrower, a few mounted machine guns, and you've got one hilariously horrifying ride across town.
This is a Velorex, a cloth-bodied, three-wheeled car once produced in Czechoslovakia. It was originally powered by a small motorcycle engine. It is now powered by a small motorcycle engine that produces a crapload of power. Video? Naturally.
