    ROBOCOP's new ride!

    Me thinks it's too vanilla plain, too conventional. They just slap on a different fairing and call it futuristic.

    It's supposed to be the near future, not year 3000. Look at the difference in bikes over the last 30 years. I don't know what you'd expect them to design for a more futuristic style of motorbike.

    that said, the suit is a little too "Batman" style. But still looks pretty cool.

    That must be comfortable to ride. All you have to do it support your entire lower body weight with your balls. I hope that's a robot part. And there are no speedbumps.

    Actually, if I were the designer, I'd probably have a minimalist articulated skeleton frame with bars/pegs at front/rear axles.

    RoboCop *is* the power supply & suspension.

    That would have been a lot more cooler.... similarly he could ad other shit to his body like an RPG, machine guns on his shoulders.

    But i guess they didnt want a Batman/Ironman hybrid.

    and as I said - that lil air-induction 'wing' on the side keeps the rider's important 'bits' alot more cooler

    Or they wanted to do live action instead of CGI.
