The name Anders Kirk Johansen does not ring a bell for most of bike aficionados, at least not until Lauge Jensen comes into discussion. Johansen is the Danish designer behind this exclusive custom motorcycle brand, but this time we're not speaking about hi. It's the much more renowned automotive designed Henrik Fisker of BMW and Aston Martin fame, designing his first motorcycle.

Fisker himself seems exceptionally happy with the whole affair: "It's been a dream of mine to design and create a motorcycle for many years and this is the first time I have the freedom to go and do it." And one doesn't need to examine the Viking concept to agree that Fisker has solid reasons to be happy.

The Viking concept will most likely be the starting point for one of Lauge Jensen's new production machines, as Johansen reveals that a new bike should make it into production, with a less steep price tag than the €42,800 ($59,300) the current Great Dane retails for.

At the heart of the Viking, Lauge Jensen has installed the US-made 45-degree EuroIV-compliant lump, producing 100 horsepower and still delivering an incredible 70 mpg (3.35 l/100km) economy. The 299 kg (660 lbs) bike comes with a 6-speed transmission (5 plus Overdrive) and can do north of 130 mph (210 km/h).

In 1968, Hungarians had to engineer something quickly to kill a massive gas fire. Pictured above, the 'Big Wind' is a T34 tank with twin MiG-29 jets pushing out a mixture of 1,585 gallons of steamed water and oxygen-poor air every minute

Leggi Tutto Commenti (0)

When Dacia first launched the Duster a little over four years ago, nobody would have ever thought that turning a Clio platform into a crossover SUV would be a good idea. It was the right car built at the right time, and many European buyers saw the no-nonsense Romanian car as being perfect for their family needs. 

Its success quickly turned global, Renault adopting the Duster as its own model and selling it across the world. Even Nissan saw its potential and rebadged it as the new Terrano, but that's a different story.

The one millionth Duster model was made today by a Renault factory in Brazil. The crossover is one of the main driving forces behind the French brand's lineup there, but also in markets like Russia and India.

"Duster is a truly global success story," explains Arnaud Deboeuf, the Renault Group's Entry Programme Director. "With Renault branding, it perfectly meets the demands of our international customers and is contributing to Renault's expansion in emerging markets. At the same time, the Dacia-badged version sold in Europe and our Mediterranean Basin markets has succeeded in attracting a new clientele to the brand thanks to the styling and genuine all-terrain capability it delivers for an affordable price. Duster is definitely a model that is winning us new customers."

The fun with patents is that they're kind of public and people with enough patience can find a lot of interesting things concerning upcoming new arrivals in the motorcycle industry. Honda makes no exception to this rule, and we can now show you a leaked sketch apparently filed with a patent which might very well be the new face of Honda's flagship liter-class machine, the CBR1000RR.

Rumors have it that Honda is working on a revised version of the CBR1000RR, a machine which - truth be told - has not enjoyed epic aesthetic upgrades lately, but which is still very popular among superbike fain.

The sketch shows a completely new front cowl, with 4 individual light modules, hell hidden under the upper hood, and judging by their shape, they're all LED. Which is awesome, as they are both energy-efficient and look awesome. The sketch involuntarily brings in discussion the current shapes of the Yamaha R1 and Ducati 1199 Panigale and its smaller brother, the 899 machine.

I'm pretty sure that paying a visit to the Pagani factory in Modena is something on many car enthusiast's bucket lists. Unfortunately though, getting there is not the easiest thing in the world - especially for those that don't live in Italy. Don't fear though, because the Google Street View team recently did their own tour of the facility and through their efforts we can now visit the factory from the comfort of our own homes. If you'd like to take the virtual tour, simply click on the Google Maps link and prepare to be amazed.
