‘Justice League’ scrapped Batman Motorcycle Design Revealed

By | General Posts | No Comments

Batman has some cool vehicles in Justice League and while the Batmobile and the Flying Fox get some much-deserved screen time in the film, the Dark Knight could have had an awesome motorcycle, too.

Justice League production designer Patrick Tatopoulos shared a few sketches on his personal Instagram earlier today of a concept he had for a Batbike. You can check out the post below.

The idea of Batman having an elaborate and unique-looking bike isn’t new. In 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises, Batman had an epic if not unusual motorcycle that the rider practically had to lay on in order to and operated on two, very wide tires. It also had some pretty cool tricks, but it lacked an overall “Batman” look to it.

Tatopoulos’s design remedies that by giving the motorcycle a distinctive and angular feel with lots of references to the shape of bat wings. The top sketch even has a seat that looks strikingly like the bat symbol or a batarang, and while the sketches don’t show wheels, the whole vehicle appears to have smaller profile which would give it dexterity for whatever chase Batman is on. It looks like there’s plenty of places for neat tools and weapons to be tucked away. It also looks like it would fit in nicely on the Flying Fox which itself is a unique vehicle. Tatopoulos recently shared concept art for the plane with the LA Times, revealing that some simple changes to the aircraft’s design had given it a look closer to that of Batman’s Batmobile, specifically by moving the placement of the cockpit.

“That little movement made it special,” Tatopoulos said. “It started to make it more like the Batmobile.”

However, it doesn’t appear that this Batbike is going to be parked next the Batmobile or part of the DC Extended Universe Bat fleet anytime soon. Tatopoulos’s caption on the photo made it sound like this sleek take on Batman’s bike will remain something from the designer’s dreams.

“Another quick doodle on the side of my dreams,” Tatopoulos wrote.

Fans can check out the designer’s other Batman vehicle designs, including the unique Flying Fox, in Justice League in theaters now.

Trippin’ on Trikes

From Mild to Wild, From Old to Bold
Story and Photos by Paul Garson

By definition, depending on who you ask, a trike is anything with three wheels powered by a motor of some kind which basically leaves it up to one’s perspective…and imagination. Size, seating capacity, engine make, original build year and displacement, suspension, accessories, trim and colors are open for interpretation…and varying Federal and state regulations. We’ve seen them in the dirt, on the street, on the track and even in the air.

Motorcycles on Three Wheels
The sidecar riding experience and how to do it
by Ujjwal Dey

Motorcycles are fun. And so is travelling long distances or touring on motorcycles. Many touring options are available for big bikes with big budgets. But suppose you are young and wild and free but on a limited budget, what do you do? Ask your friends and they will say a car trip ain’t as much fun as being one with the road on a motorcycle. The environment, the atmosphere, the surroundings, it all hugs you, body and soul, when you tour on a motorcycle. So, here is an option hippies globally celebrate–Sidecars. A third wheel for your motorcycle. No more slippery roads for your two-wheeler. More luggage space. Bring more friends to the road trip party. Bring your dog too.

We recently covered the Ural Motorcycles phenomenon on www.BikernetTrikes.com and if that has inspired you but you are not sure about buying a whole Ural, well just buy a sidecar then. There are many companies including Ural itself, which sells Sidecars as an accessory for your existing motorcycle. So no, you don’t have to switch loyalty or buy a new bike. Just buy the goodies to attach a sidecar to your Harley-Davidson or Triumph or Indian.
