Ubco Utility Bike

UBCO Utility Bike is a new rugged, off-road motorcycle developed by a group of New Zealanders that were trying to create an innovative product. Well, we think they did it, itīs an all-terrain bike that has 2 wheel traction, which will let you go virtually anywhere, itīs green, because itīs electric and you get low maintenance costs due to the fact of having less moving parts than regular bikes. Its range is also very reasonable, more than 100 km with a single charge of the 40 Ah Li-ion battery. UBCO was also concerned with the fact of it being able to carry around considerable weight, so you could use it as a work tool and not just for fun. In order to do just that they developed an X shaped frame that will bear up to 200 kg. Another interesting feature is that it can also offer electric power, it features power outlets and USB ports, this will may very well come in handy if you ever need to charge up your smartphone or use a power tool, how cool is that?

WEST COAST DEFENDER

It seems our obsession with Land Rover Defenders is shared with West Coast Defender, an LA based company. If you live in the U.S. the cult vehicle hasnīt been available new on the market since 1997, and importing one is not an option due to strict U.S. vehicle import laws. However classic cars, like the Defender, 25 years old or older, have no import restrictions. "West Coast Defender" searches the UK and Europe for classic Land Rover Defenders, brings them to the ...
