The woman rider on the bubbly-future-looking electric motorbike featured on the Silodrome website definitely caught my eye! The Johammer Electric Motorcycle has a pretty impressive range of 125 miles (200km), uses center hub steering, and regenerative braking. (Regenerative braking is utilized in many electric cars these days, the engine basically assists in braking while also charging the battery. You can read more about it on How Stuff Works, & Tesla Motors.

Nope, not cheap… the full model (12.7 kWh) with longer distance as mentioned above will be about $34,500 (25,000 euros).

Mystery Girl Emma from Russia

You’ve probably seen photos of her riding around on sport bikes in heels and short skirts, shorts, costumes, etc. This the most circulated photo of them all, for sure. 

I’ve always wondered if she dresses up for photo ops around St. Petersburg, Russia, but otherwise gears up… and I found other photos that suggest that is the case.
