While boys play with toy cars and bikes when young they hope to own them as they grow older. When a man wants to say that he has ‘arrived’ he usually does so by showing off his latest hot 4 wheeler but the boy inside him continues to stay on. This boy still demands bikes and bikes of a kind! Owning a Rolce Royce or Ferrari isn’t just enough for them, they want more. If luxury means sailing on a yacht to some, it means owning a customized Jaeger- LeCoultre with your name engraved to some. Some of them finish off with style. So why spend on a ‘flavoured’ Munch Mammut when you can own a Mercedes? Here’s why not...
Pass off your normal Harley Davidson dealer to own an ECOSSE SPIRIT. It is known as the lightest and luxury oriented motorcycles. The bike has an electric starter, all-titanium chassis is stronger than and one- tenth the weight of steel. It offers customised designs and intricately detailed metalwork. It has double horsepower with a bespoke 1000 cc, 1L4 engine. This ride is developed by British F1 engineers and falls in the Sports bike category weighing about 120 kgs. No wonder Tom Cruise and Nicolas Cage are both proud owners of Ecosses.
Do auto-rickshaws come to your mind when you think of three-wheelers? Try taking a look at Piaggio MP3 500, Touring, the three-wheeled corporate scooter. Though it has been introduced in 2008, this 3 wheeler is picking up good pace. It has sold over 100,000 Mp3 scooters sold worldwide. Having the two front wheels and a suspension backed at the front with double-ignition Master 500ie engine. Other new features are the hand grips, with improved grip and ergonomics, the silver colour finish of the wheels, and the saddle, which is now upholstered with new materials and enhanced with relief stitching. It is also blessed with ergonomic rear grab handle with integrated backrest, and the luggage compartment, accessible from under the saddle and from the rear hatch, with a record-breaking 65 litres of load capacity and the ability to accommodate objects up to 1 metre in length! Riding this is an experience that revolutionises the very concept of mobility.
Is F1 your favourite sport? Does watching the super-fast cars give you an adrenaline rush? The speed of a racing car combined with its weight, this superbike is a splendid wonder! It’s the Ducati, we’re referring to. When it was launched, the Ducati 1199 Panigale housed the most powerful engine of any commercial motorcycle with 195 hp maxxing out at almost 11,000 rpm. It also has the best power to weight ratio making it nimble and extremely manoeuvrable even at high speeds. Unlike its predecessors, it has its exhaust under the seat. It comes with electronically adjustable suspension, one of the first production motorcycles to have it. A beasty villain on the road and a super-hero off it, a fine make we’re thinking.
These invincible bikes are serious boy’s toys which when taken to the road conquer all! Who needs cars when these bikes can do ‘it’ all...wink-wink.
