Ducati may have taken a minimal design approach to the 2015 Monster 821, but that approach is limited to the motorcycle’s looks. Power has nothing to do with minimalism where the Monster is concerned. The Ducati Monster 821 comes powered with a 112 hp, 821cc twin cylinder Testrastretta engine that does justice to the Monster name. Available in July, the motorcycle is priced between $10,995-$11,495.

The Scrambler is a custom motorcycle built off a Kawasaki W800 by Italian builders Moto Di Ferro.

The overall effect puts the Scrambler in quite a lean, mean look.
MV Augusta have unveiled a brand new motorcycle, the Brutale Dragster 800. The motorcycle is powered by a 3 cylinder 125 hp engine, wider rear tire, shorter tail, and an updated front mudguard. Starting in the middle of the year, it will be available in gray and white.

Kawasaki has gone all futuristic with its new concept bike, simply named J. Independent designers have long been cooking up concepts like these, but this is probably the first time a major manufacturer has lent weight to the futuristic idea. Kawasaki J Concept has three wheels, two at the front and one big wheel at the rear. Two wheels at the front means that the conventional handlebar gets replaced in favor of two controllers, each individually connected to a wheel.

Endo usually works on 6 feet by 4 feet canvas. Painting starts with drawing an outline, followed by splashing paint on the canvas that is then spread by the use of chopsticks.
