I never knew I wanted an electric kick scooter until BMW unveiled its new X2City. With a range of up to 21 miles at speeds of up to 15 mph and a folding steering column, you can zip around town and then stow it in the trunk of your car without breaking a sweat.
The video description reads: “He is caught after hitting a wall.” Yeah, it is on video.
The Nürburgring is on nearly every gearhead’s bucket list, but this man went to far more incredible lengths to do it than most do. Jae Yeong Lee rode his 110cc, eight horsepower Honda Super Cub scooter approximately 11,200 miles from Seoul, South Korea, to do two laps of the Nürburgring.
A category 5 typhoon called “Meranti” just pummeled Taiwan and is working its way into mainland China, and this guy thinks it’s a good idea to take the scooter out. Nature’s reality check was right on the nose.
When Honda introduces the world’s first adventure scooter on August 30th, what they’re tentatively calling the X-ADV, it’ll be an affirmation that the best adventure vehicle is the one you’ve got—even if it happens to be a scooter. Especially if it happens to be a scooter.
The scooter. The flip-flops. The cat. THE MUSIC.
I want to believe this story for many reasons: first, it’s a jumping car. A French jumping car from before WWI. Second, this was sent to me by Jeff Lane, the man behind my favorite motor museum. And third, it’s a French jumping car. I think I believe the story; I’m just not sure I think it’s actually true. Get me?
There you are, out for a nice afternoon ride when you pass a little white scooter. You make the pass and get along your way, and he’s out of your mind. That is, until he wheelies past you like a unicorn galloping in a fit of glory.
Do you crave adventure? The fresh air, the wide-open expanses, and the limitless freedom – all without leaving city limits? Honda wants to make a thing for that too.
Honda has always liked to be first, from the first modern superbike in the VFR750R to the first dual-clutch gearbox used in an adventure bike — the upcoming Africa Twin. Who knows, maybe even the Honda NM4 will be the first of a new segment. Think off-road scootering will become a thing?
Growing up, I was never really a motorcycle guy. I had never driven one, never contemplated owning one; I never even sat on one until I was 24 (stupid me). I always thought they were dangerous and the likelihood of owning a motorcycle with my parent’s approval was blasphemy.
We've already established that electric motorcycles don't have to be stodgy appliances, but the problem – as always – is charging and range. So what if you nixed the amount of time it takes to juice up with a ubiquitous infrastructure of swappable batteries? That's what Gogoro is trying to do.
Volkswagen went happy hardcore once again for the Wörthersee festival with the Amarok Power Concept. Rumor has it that the 5,000 watt DJ set can only play Scooter.
By packing 38 tire-blistering horsepower into a cut-down, ultra lightweight 2 wheeler with a straight-cut, 4-speed transmission, the German mental patients at Scooter and Service may have just built the world's most perfect vintage Vespa.
This sci-fi electric unicycle is the RYNO, a future-badass alternative to the Segway that looks like it got beamed down from the year 2114. But it's here, and it's real, and I got to ride it.
Commuting by motorcycle boasts a number of perks. Reduced journey times, typically better fuel economy, and ease of parking in city centres, which is often free, are just a few of them.
Here's a senior in Edinburgh on his/her mobility scooter holding up a bus full of German tourists. Does the senior care? No. The senior could not give a shit.
Look at that picture up there. Let's break down what's going on there: the scene is a blistery, snowy day in brutal winter, somewhere Spokane, Washington.
How badly do you want a Honda Integra that gets 65mpg and can do 0-to-60 in under five seconds? Really bad, right? The good news is that Honda is bringing the Integra name back next year and putting it on a vehicle with those exact specs. The bad news? It's a, wait for it... scooter.
If you came across an old Crosely dealership sign made from the outer four inches of either side of a 1949 Crosley convertible, welded together and shortened, what would you do with it? Most people would probably hang it in their garage, but Crosley collector Paul Gorrell had a slightly more interesting idea. Using…
