Savage Cycles Building Resident Evil Motorcycles

In one of the most simultaneously bizarre and awesome licensing deals ever, Capcom has teamed up with custom motorcycle outfit Savage Cycles and production company Hollywood, Inc. to build a limited number of licensed Resident Evil-themed choppers.

According to the Capcom-Unity Blog, the impulse was to create a bike that would be "...a post-apocalyptic zombie murdering machine, just the sort of thing a heavily-armed member of STARS would jump onto and blast into the middle of a runaway zombie crisis," and to achieve the "ultimate fusion of survival horror and outlaw bike."

Although the price for one of these bad-boys has yet to be revealed, the first of these limited edition custom-built motorcycles will be available in early January - much to the chagrin of undead pedestrians everywhere.

    Oh wow, a faux chopper full of spiky things with no back seat, a fat rear tire and a cobra head gas tank!

    I think they've built a hundred million of these things since 2004.

      Yeah, but they never had the Resident Evil logo slapped on the side!

      Funny to think the chopper once represented something besides pre-packaged rebellion.

      WTF is a back seat? Stick to playing video games and let motorcycle people talk about motorcycles.

      Turning radius on that is gonna suck with that rake...

        See, in English, which I speak natively, you should never use a word twice in the same sentence. If you're gonna mention both the rear tire and seat, you should find different words for each.

        That and I own a bike, it's my only means of transportation, and have been riding since I was 5, fuckwit.

          Motorbike =/= Bicycle And if you we're riding a motorcycle at 5, you're exaggerating.

          There are no grammar rules that prevent the use of the same word twice in a single sentence. Most sentences can be phrased more elegantly to avoid using the same word twice, but it's not strictly forbidden. If it's something you remember from school or something like that, I'd say it's more of a writing convention than a grammar rule.

          Also, I don't think the bikes are being built for commuting. I don't think anything like this is necessarily being built with ergonomics and practicality in mind.
