What's good y'all? Following in the footsteps of BMW and their success with the S1000rr, Audi has come out with a two-wheeled concept, even without a tradition in building motorcycles. Check out the design by Garvin Harvey.
Dubbed the Audi RB-1200 S, the performance bike concept uses details from Audi cars, such as the lights from the R8 model to link the bike to the car. Specifically, the Audi R8 standard headlights are comprised entirely of light-emitting diodes (LED).
Also, the front brake will be Audi red, while it will also have the Audi logo (4 circles) engraved in to the metal. In addition to that, the rear of the bike will have a twin exhaust, located under the seat under the rear lights. As for the seat, this will be made from leather, with carbon fiber detail and will also have the Audi four rings engraved in the material.
However, the overall design seems to be inspired by the famous Auto Union D-Type race cars from the 1930s. Finally, though most of you are mostly preoccupied with the performance aspects of such a bike, expecting to see figures that could leave the R8 behind.
All i know is, I can’t wait to ride it!

What’s up people? Now that winter is in full swing here, I just wanted to take this opportunity to ask you all to slow down and be careful out there on your motorcycles.
Below is a video shot with a GoPro camera of a 44mph accident in icy conditions. Take a look.
So, what did we learn? Proceed slowly, don’t make any sudden movements, and don’t ride into tracks made by other heavier vehicles. Be safe out there folks.
