2 – 6.5

Getting Phillipe Stark to a motorcycle is like getting Spice to pen a car. What do you she designed that new Range Anyway, the 6.5 was designed to within an of its life, and consequently it ended up like some new kitchen but not as useful.

3 – BMW C1

Sticking a roof on a moped like some wacky Englishman’s idea – especially our inclement weather – but no, the Germans came up with this And do you know what, it kinda on, with BMW doing pretty trade out of it. There are even of it being resurrected. Hands up who one…
