Is this a motorcycle or what?

We live in the age when cars are getting smaller and smaller, to the point of becoming three wheeled vehicles. If the four-wheeler segment is undergoing dramatic changes in product production, so is the two-wheeler part of automobile industry too.

Mileage, looks, power, or whatever you call, a great amount of research is happening on the motorcycles and scooters front. How would you react then, to a motorcycle that defies the notion of two wheels and metamorphosizes into a four-wheeled rarity your eyes may not quite be used to?

Would you call it a motorcycle? Technically motorcycles are supposed to have just two wheels. Cars are supposed to have four. Even now many motorcycles that use four-wheel formation. Call it, ranging from the most famous such as the Dodge Tomahawk V10 Superbike up to the most recently appeared at the Geneva Motor Show 2016, ie Lazareth LM847 V8 engined bike.

And now, look at the 2010 Cosmos 4RW V8 Muscle Bike is at times bizarre looking and at other times looks like a fusion of some kind. This amazing motorcycle designed by a Brazilian mechanical engineer named Amadeu Ferreira Junior in 2009, the motorcycle using a 350-cubic-inch, Chevy ZZ4 crate engine, which puts out 355-horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque.

Those power figures enough to drive a 4,000-pound hotrod fast, and more than enough to drive a 1,047-pound motorcycle really, really fast. It offers only three gears, plus reverse, because you’re not going to roll this thing backward under your own power.
This monstrous bike uses 4 wheels measure 17-inches, with two in the front, two in the back, except that the pairs look stuck together. You may be able to ride it only if you are big in size. The advantage is that two big wheels will not let you fall for lack of balance. And it cost $93,200 (or approx Rp.1.22 billion), or $82,100 (approx Rp.1.07 billion) if you decide to go with the tamer two-wheeled version. Such a quite expensive bikes isn't? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GEEKOLOGIE]
