A very brave or very suicidal Chinese policeman, riding a super sonic Kawasaki Ninja H2 hyperbike trough heavy traffic in Shanghai. The officer is of the low-traffic-police kind, those that are standing on crossroads directing traffic in rush hour, and fining bicyclists for existing. How did he get his ass on a Ninja?

An electric scooter with a Louis Vuitton mudflap, Spotted in China in the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing by Reader Joachim C., thank you for the photo! The flap, a rather large example, is attached to the back of the frame covering the rear wheel, and almost hits the ground. Fuzzily, the Louis Vuitton lettering and logo, while correct in color and kind, is printed upside down on the flap. Still, it loox very luxurious. Flaps like these go for about 50 yuan in China, and they come with every print imaginable. The anti-cold wind quilt covering the front of the scooter, keeping the legs and arms warm, is also very hip, in purple with a white and red alphabet.

Two monks on a Kawasaki Ninja motorbike, seen somewhere in Guangdong Province. China is plagued a zillions of ‘fake monks’ who earn lots of money by begging around in upscale shopping centers, fooling otherwise merciless consumers who suddenly feel guilty about their wealth when they see a robe.
Earlier on there were scandals in China about fake monks driving expensive cars, buying iPhones, visiting massage parlors, and much more. The Kawasaki Ninja ain’t no cheap toy either, price for this Ninja 300 starts around 60.000 yuan or almost 10.000 USD. Come pray!

A great man from the great city of Urumqi in Xinjiang Province built a great machine in the best Chinese tradition. It all started with a small Suzuki and ended up as a giant motorbike on tractor wheels. The brilliant beast is drivable, but not very fast, and can seat six.

The Viper V10 powered Dodge Tomahawk motorcycle concept debuted back in 2003 but sadly never made it to any street-legal production. Not in the USA, that is, in China however, there is at least one Tomahawk on the road. This beautiful vehicle was seen by our great friend Lao Wei somewhere in Beijing, thank you for the pictures! It is very real, with a gasoline engine and two fat tires, chromed to the max and ready to race.

One of the coolest motorbikes I’ve ever seen here in Beijing. This is a very fast firefighting motorbike from the Beijing Fire Department. It comes with shiny red paint, a siren, warning lights, and 2×25 liter canisters that are filled with water and foam. Using a high-powered 30m jet hose, the mobile fire-fighting platform can put out a small fire in around 20 seconds and will run for around two to three minutes before supplies run dry.
