Icon 1000's Dromedarii, basically a modified Triumph Tiger 800xc, could quite possibly be the coolest looking military-inspired motorcycle yet.

APWorks, a subsidiary of Airbus, has created a 3D-printed motorcycle, called "Light Rider", one in which they tout as "the world's lightest motorcycle." At just 77-pounds with the electric motor, the 13-pound frame is held together with a web of aluminum alloy powder that they call "Scalmalloy". Despite its weight, this material has nearly the specific strength of titanium, especially when multiple layers are fused together. It has a top speed of 50mph and will cost $56,095 when released.

BMW R100 Sprintbeemer

Lucky Cat Garage's BMW R100 Sprintbeemer appears to be straight from a science fiction movie, but this cafe racer is real, and built around a rigid BMW 2 frame. It's powered by a lightly tuned RS Boxer engine, paired with an inverted '92 R100 R gearbox, while a slick square drag tire on a lightened hub manages traction in the rear. Since there's no need for speedometer, you'll only find a Scitsu Tachometer nestled in behind the aerodynamic fairing.
