This hubless Monster Motorcycle is not just for looks, it actually runs. The wheels basically “work by fixing the rotating parts onto the outer side of a non-rotating inner ring that attaches to the motorcycle’s swingarm or forks.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

Advantages include decreased unsprung weight, reduced structural stress (no spokes to transmit forces through), increased braking leverage, more accurate steering, reduced vibration and a lower center of gravity.
