Impressive and Interesting to Look at Sometimes weird electric bikes aren’t very handsome, like is the case with Cake’s motorcycles. Sometimes they’re downright sci-fi gorgeous.

Harley Looking Ahead Harley-Davidson made a big effort towards the future with its new LiveWire. However, that bike hasn’t been very well received.
