Darker rally is one of the most dangerous sporting events but has never lost the interest of the people. This year the event again witnessed death of 2 riders Elmer Symons and Eric Aubijoux and a spectator.

The event was equally exciting like previous events held. This time the title was grabbed by Cyril Despres who drove 72 bhp KTM 690 Rally machine prepared by Austrian brand KTM. The Companies machines dominated the race as it filled the first four spots and 23 of the first 30 finishers.

Frenchman Cyril Despres (Gauloisses KTM) who finished more than half an hour in front of the field was on neck to neck competition with 2005’s champion Marc Coma who crashed when just one timed stage remaining of the 8686 kilometre event was remaining and could not further participate in the race.

Many other riders including remaining five KTM factory riders were eliminated from the race after they met some serious creashes but luckily survived any serious injuries. The Company also tested it new KTM Neck Brace protection system which proved to be quiet effective.

This wild sporting event retained its reputation as the world’s toughest rally.

It seems that increasing demand for scoters has grabbed attention of major auto makers. Scooters are now being preferred over bikes due to their exceptionally good handling that makes them handier for daily use. Honda displayed its four concept vehicles at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2007 and one of them that is Forza Smart 2-seater concept scooter caught my attention. This new concept scooter will provide you with a pleasant and safe ride experience in crowded places with its information-related functions. The scooter can be equipped with portable AVN entertainment system.

The design is a real marvel that makes it standout from rest similar vehicles. A good body and seat color theme including LED headlights, LED front fog lights, welcome lighting and passenger backrest with built-in wing-type high visibility high-mount stop lamp.

This perfect for two vehicle lets you communicate easily with pillion rider using its inter-communication system. Front and rear speakers fitted in the bike make your ride more fun filled as both the riders can share the music. I liked this vehicle and am sure that riding this would be a great fun.

Other vehicles displayed were Stream Hyper Sport Concept Vehicle, Fit Daily Active Concept Vehicle, Stream Exclusive Concept Vehicle, a racing version of the Civic Hybrid, and customized Modulo versions of the Airwave, Stream, CR-V, and Odyssey Absolute along with a varied lineup of genuine Honda accessories ranging from navigation to audio systems.

The Roller Cycle, personal power accelerator offers you a good full-body cardiovascular workout with a lot of fun and excitement. The device is powered by a 1.5 horsepower engine and can take you up to 25mph in any terrain.

This is the one of the kind Hover bike that exists. Jim Chalmers have made this incredible invention. This bike has a top speed of 50mph and uses a large fan that lifts the bike and propels it forward.

The pricing and availability is not announced yet so you’ll have to wait for some time to ride this bike.

After looking at the image, you must be wondering that for what is this monster made for.

It is a NSU Kettenkrad, the smallest tracked vehicle that was produced in World War II. It was known as Rabbit, but has nothing to do with that innocent creature. The vehicle is a kind of tractor that is about 10 feet long with a room of three people. It was powered by a

water-cooled Opel four cylinder lifted straight out of the Opel Olympia that could deliver 36 horsepower to drive this 2700-pound half-track through any terrain.

The machine had a sophisticated mechanism that made it maneuverable. The steering was controlled using a steering brake system much like a bigger tank. The vehicle was used to tow heavy guns to the places, which were hard to reach.

Only a few of these machines have survived and I am sure these are best choice for an Off Road drive experience.

Cycling is good for your health, safe and it is the cheapest and eco-friendly conveyance available. Most of us avoid using them either due to their awkward shapes and some of us do not want to exert.

Here are some of the best folding bikes that can fit into your suitcase easily and can be carried along. Some of them also have electric motors installed to them so that you don’t have to pain your legs driving them.

For a rate and comparison of some of the coolest bikes, you can visit ecogeek.

Some of the coolest bikes known to me are A-Bike, eZee Quando, GoBike and Di Blasi R24. You’ll really love to ride one of them.

Check out some more pictures after the break.

The styling body features graffiti on the frame and provides the machine with dynamic looks.
