Makoto Kobayashi future motorcycle2.jpgJapanese artist and cyberpunk mechanical designer Makoto Kobayashi gives us the Glendatsue, an enclosed armored motorcycle from his wonderfully gloomy and innovative science fiction book Hyper Weapon 2. Originally published in the early ’80s, the book’s incredible designs still inspire. Grim and scary as the future can be, it’s good to know we’ll still be able to go for a bike ride.

    The Japanese word for function is Honda. This is just to scare the hell out of the neighbors.
