The Ducati Hunter

The Ducati Hunter

I love my Triumph and rarely give second glances to other supersports, but daaayum this bike would get more than a head turn from me! Stylistically, the Arac ZXS looks something like a hybrid of Jap brands and the Italian Ducati, none of which hold a match to the ZXS’s extremely robust body and aggressive stance. This v-twin beast is 100% street fighter. As with any concept, it’s hard to say what the performance is like, but judging by the mean look on its face, it’s probably safe to say that it’s somewhere between breathtaking and heart-stopping.

At rest, the phone lies flat, but upon being activated by a call, the sections begin to flex, offering an additional visual indication and shape that is more ergonomic for holding against the ear. To turn off, simply push the phone against a surface to deactivate it.

The Italian Made Rizoma 77/011

The Italian Made Rizoma 77/011

Why do bikes have to be this sexy? The Rizoma 77/011 makes me rethink my main mode of transport. Love the sleek design, and that’s carbon fiber btw – aluminum only plays accent here. With the number of growing urban bicyclists, I’m not surprised designers are paying more attention to design and functionality that plays well inside the urban jungle. The most unique feature is switching from a single speed fixed wheel to a fixed-gear. All this through an ingenious rear wheel equipped with two pulleys to freely choose from.
