The Badass Motorbike Built to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse
It’s a ride fit for Daryl from The Walking Dead
If there’s one key lesson from our pop culture visions of a post-apocalyptic world, it’s that survival of the fittest really means survival of the best-equipped.
That’s where the Black Ops Edition of the Motoped Survival Bike comes in. Developed by the Santa Cruz-based motorbike designers and billed as “your tactical blank canvas,” the powerful, lightweight aluminum motorbike is a ride fit for, among other things, battling hordes of zombies.
For its size, this bike is a workhorse: The primary fuel tank is supplemented by two extra side-mounted tanks designed to take riders nearly 400 miles without refueling, while the 49-125cc motor packs a serious punch perfect for getting out of tight spots and making a quick escape.
But the most important aspect of this bad boy is its flexibility: the bike was built “for the creative survivalist [to] apply your favorite gear and escape with your life.” And by favorite gear, we mean chainsaws, a shovel (or a Lobo, for you World War Z fans), knives, axes, rope, a handlebar-mounted GPS, and plenty of space for other weapons. Here’s an example of a fully decked-out version from the folks over at HiConsumption:
As you can tell, this thing can carry a lot of deadly gear — including a crossbow, if you want to make like The Walking Dead‘s favorite toxophilite Darryl.
Sure, its unlikely that you’ll have to fight off herds of zombies anytime soon. But hey, you might as well take a page out of the Boy Scout’s manual and be prepared.
