Bygen Hank - The Collapsible Direct Drive Bike
The Bygen Hank Direct Bike proposes an innovative approach to classic space-saver folding bikes – a collapsible frame that slides back and forth based on the usage instance hooked-up to a direct drive system with pedals attached to the back wheel. The Bygen Hank bicycle is produced in Korea, weights less than 22 lbs (that’s less than 10KG), features a sliding carbon fiber frame which helps reducing its size when not in use, a foldable handle to make it even more compact and 20-in wheels. According to Bygen, the elimination of the bike chain results in 7-8% power increase at the same pedaling frequency.

ALSO CHECK the Transporter Commuter Bike With Trunk Wheel,the HMK 561Corbon Fiber Electric Bike and the Bicymple No-Chain Bike.

The Bygen bike will go on sale on the Korean market in October, with overseas release scheduled sometime after and will set you back a whopping $5,000 US (the price will probably lower as distribution widens).

Taurus 2×2 - The Russian Made All-Terrain Motorcycle That Can Reach Everywhere!
All terrain vehicles are amazing! And I am not speaking about your regular family SUV branded by it’s manufacturer as an All Terrain supercar! I speak about real all-terrain vehicles that can reach places we never thought a vehicle will see! Vehicles like the Marauder, the UHAC or the GHE-O Motors Rescue Vehicle!

Today, we’ll show you another all-terrain beast that can reach beyond imagination. But this time we’ll go for two wheels instead of four – the Taurus 2×2 (Tarus 2×2 on it’s original name).
The Taurus is a Russian made all terrain motorcycle created to help riders travel through forests, swamps, climb mountains, cross snowy planes and any other difficult terrains you can think about! The motorcycle comes in two versions: the 2×2 Taurus 2 – a collapsible model (can fit in two handbags) with low pressure tires weighting around 110 lbs (540 KG) and powered by a 5.5hp engine hooked to a 3 speed transmission. The second model, the 2×2 Taurus 2M weights around 160lbs (73KG), has heavy duty tires and is powered by a 4stroke 7hp engine and features a foldable design.
Both models can reach speed up to 37mph (60 KMH) and have a fuel consumption of 0.3 US gal (1.2 liters) per hour! The on board fuel reserve allows about 4.5 hours or riding.

The Taurus all terrain motorcycles are in project mode and they should be available on the market soon. The expected retail price turns around $980 US and the motorcycles will be delivered in a DIY assembly kit.

Check the video in the post to see the 2×2 Taurus, or 2×2 Tarus if you prefer to go by it’s original name, in action and let me know your thoughts in the comments …

Ferrari LaFerrari XX - So Powerful It Breaks Itself!!!
Be afraid. Ferrari is working on the most extreme production-derived car in its history: a hardcore, track-spec version of the heart-poundingly fast LaFerrari, dubbed the ‘XX’.

When BBC’s Top Gear presents a super car as they did above, there must be some serious things going on!
The XX version of the “already-too-powerfull” LaFerrari model of the Maranello squad is deemed to be the fastest car money can buy! The XX model will be available somewhere in January/February 2015 and will be powered by a Formula One-derived V6 turbo hybrid powertrain. The “regular” (read the $1.75 million) LaFerrari is powered by a V12 6.3-liter beast that outputs 789bhp and can reach 60mph (0 to 100KMH) in 2.9 seconds!!!
Imagine what the XX version will be capable of!

Check the video for a full demo of the Laferrari XX on the track. Make sure you put your headphones and turn the volume up! The sound is epic!
Also pay attention at 2:20 min … Don’t worry – the car will not break apart! The Laferrari’s right rear wheel gets some serious positive camber and leaves the impression it will fall out …
