    Reminds me a little of the rotary engine motorcycles.

    But wait, the company also offers the penis pump model for the guys.

    I actually think both are pretty striking.

    If those bikes are ridden, does the owner wear leathers made by Dainese or Oscar de la Renta, Armani, etc.?

    Notice that there are no pictures with a rider on board. Realize that the pegs are those little round tube ends you see at the lower rear of the motor's radial fins. Now envision what a rider would look like with that bar/seat/peg relationship. Some may see the bike as some sort of rolling art form, but put a rider on it and suddenly he looks like a clown on a tricycle.

    Maybe wear a polished stainless steel motorcycle style suit of armor and helmet.

    You could be right. It would be nice to have someone at least standing next to the bikes to give them scale, but I do think the designs are beautiful or at least refreshingly different from the usual 'interpretations.' Then again a "practical $75,000 bike" is a bit of an oxymoron.

    And you wonder why all the bobber builders are asking so much for their junk. They look identical.
