The Brudeli 654L Leanster is a trike based off a KTM 690 Supermoto which has 2 wheels in the front simular to the Can-Am Spyder. Unlike the Spyder, the Brudeli 554L leans with you on turns!

Weighing in at 525 lbs, the Leanster can lean up to 45 degrees! “The vehicle is best described as something in between a motorcycle and ATV-quad. It leans into corners like a motorcycle but, at the same time, has a lot of the stability of a sport quad.” Price should be around $30,000 availability is unknown. See the image gallery.

This Ferrari superbike concept is designed around Enzo engine that has been modified down to 4 cylinders. It features fly-by-wire technology with hand controls which were adapted from an “F-16 fighter jet, and buttons based on those found on the steering wheel of Ferrari’s Formula 1 race cars.” My favorite part is the weatherproof touchscreen display which allows you to access the sound system and trip computer… Imagine the possibilities, not the cost. See an image gallery.

This insane Electric Chair Halloween Prop ($1,795.00) will scare the crap out of anyone! Push the button and you hear electrical wind up. The chair fires, and he launches into a frenzy. The electrocution ends and he comments as the machinery winds down. Due to intense thrashing, you’ll need to chain or bolt the chair down! It is powered by an air compressor (not included). I know you are thinking Halloween is still a month away, but special item objects like this can take up to 4 – 8 weeks for delivery.
