I like that  :)

My personal fav' is this one. It's a Honda concept bike which appeared at a Tokyo Motorcycle Show some years ago and called an Evo6

It looks awesome but he never did go around a corner in the video. It appears it can only go straight down the street. Still quite a wild concept bike.

Does it come with a massive loudspeak attached for the vroom to be heard for miles around?

I hate Harley-Davidson motorbikes. I lived for three years opposite some drug dealers in Canberra and they were visited at all hours of the day and night by Harley riding customers.   >:D

It might actually be a smart move.  How many of the HD buyers these days are those wanting to feel like a rebel...though still want to do the right thing.  I'm thinking the Wild Hogs style here. ;)

Something that caught my eye, simple, a little retro and real world for an affordable price.

The 2029 Majestic

Taking cues from the classic French 1929 Majestic, the custom ride features a fully enclosed sculptured aluminum body, hub-centric steering and sleek lines like its hundred-year-old predecessor. But that’s where the similarities end. Penned by Bryan Fuller, the futuristic riff features 3D-printed titanium parts, transparent polycarbonate wheels—unlike the original, they have no spokes—and is fitted with an electric engine.

I had to look up the original Majestic https://www.bikeexif.com/majestic-motorcycle

Looks like something one of those Art Deco Superheroes would have rode.

Wow!

Lots of work to reverse the drive shaft direction. Possibly a daft question but ... why couldn't the whole engine simply be turned back-to-front?

I'm not certain, but I suspect the configuration of the cooling fins may make this the better direction

Plus fuel pump, oil pump, CSD/magnetos, etc., are hanging off the back of the engine. Look silly if they were poking forward. ;)
