Have we done this yet ?

Ferrari V4 Motorcycle 149 | HybridLava

Sexy engine. Hideous body. Aerodynamic though.

It reminds me of an ice cream scoop....

I wish they'd do a close-up of the controls.

Kaneda's bike looked badass. That looks like some kind of Batman Action Figure accessory. Ugly! One thing about Ferrari, they're very striking. Not always good looking, but striking.

I know I've seen that thing before, but I did a search & can't find any instances of "max rebo", so it must've been on a different forum.

I've seen it before & this is still my reply:





with all-do respect to Ferrari... that thing is hideous

Hope the bike isn't as slow as their webpage

tick tock, tick tock


*EDIT*
Firefox thinks the bike is totally lame. Probably why IE brought it right up.

Fugly for this bike is doing fugly a disservice as an adjective. It reminds me of the early Ferrari's from the 50's

Where's the front suspension?

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

Yea I'm calling bullshit on this one. Ferrari had nothing to do with designing that thing. Thats someone messing around on there home computer. No respecting design company would make a bike that has no place for the actual rider, let alone crappy layer photoshop work.

Yeah this "concept" is pretty old. I guess you could say it was aerodynamic, but only without a rider. I always hate it when designers flaunt concepts to the public that aren't actual things. Call me when you have a real one, or at least something that has a chance of actually being produced.

It's like "hey guys, I have a concept of a new car THAT HOVERS, here's a cool picture, see how it's hovering....btw, don't ask me how to get it to hover..."

That's what this is "...a modified engine from a Ferrari Enzo!...hand controls are from a F-16 fighter jet and buttons are from a Forumla 1 race car."

Now if this guy really had a modified enzo engine, and mocked up a frame and mounted those controls and rode it around the block THEN I might be interested, but this article was posted in 2009. I'm assuming this guy just designed it for fun/recognition, and then all these "news" websites shove it in the non-motorcycling public faces and they're like "oh hot dang that's one of them thar ferrari motorcycles! I bet that goes faster than a bullfrog in a beetle bucket!"

But that's just how I imagine it...
