The RoboCop of motorcycles

It's a concept, yes, but what a concept it is

The Detonator
Daniel Simon Studio

This mechanical beast looks like a cross between extreme motocross and RoboCop. It goes by the appropriately incendiary name of the "Detonator" V4 6.0, with the numbers standing for a 6-liter, 4-cylinder engine contained in its block housing. Yet the most outrageous feature of this conceptual piece of hell on wheels is not the horsepower, but its steering mechanism: an electromagnetic sled controlled by two independent handlebars, according to Gizmowatch, which is complemented by a glass tube radar system to help navigation. Although it exists only in the minds and sketchboards of Daniel Simon Studio, we vote wholeheartedly to make it a reality.
