Turkish designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem has broken the mold with his new conceptual take on the NineT from BMW, one of the most popular bikes for designers to customize. This is one of the best variations that we've come across and truly breaks the mold from both a design and performance standpoint. The Aurora is still in concept form and was commissioned by GB Motobike of Instanbul, but with the amount of fanfare that its received, we wouldn't put it past them to release an early alpha of this design in the near future. You can check more of Mhemet's works on his Instagram linked at the end of this post. echo 'yo'; ?>
TetonX Adventure Trailer
You no longer need a big truck or powerful 4x4 to get your gear where it needs to be. Traditional trailers might be heavy and require tons of horsepower pull them up hills and down trails, but for the enthusiast who doesn’t happen to own an F350, the TetonX might be the perfect solution. With models starting around the ultralight 700 pound range, you could be hauling gear in a Prius. The secret is a savvy utilization of lightweight composite materials. And if you do happen to have some horsepower to spare, some of the heavier models will open you up to more storage capacity, and other custom features like a kitchenette, or roof mounting racks.
Each year at the annual Easter Jeep Safari our favorite off-roading automaker releases their concept designs for the future. This year, Jeep showed off seven new designs that range from vintage to modern. Our favorite was the 4Speed, a Wrangler-based designed that aims to pack all of their usual power and performance into a smaller, more light-weight package. Shortening the traditional Wrangler by 22 inches, the 4Speed sports a carbon fiber hood, fender flares and a carbon fiber rear tub. A raked windshield, wider door openings and a custom built cage all lead to a design that makers dubbed "aggressively swept back."
