It's the Akira bike.

I wouldn't want to try cornering on it.

Yeah, the actual production model's a bit different. Normal bars, higher ground clearance etc...

But a bit less lethal, which is always nice.

If one wanted to be safe, one wouldn't ride a motorcycle.

True, but the lack of ground clearance on the concept bike means you couldn't corner at anything over walking pace. That makes it both dangerous and dull- a nasty combination.

Debs, let's start saving now - we could go halves, if not to ride, just to look at!

Nah, just uninformed about one of the best manga, and one of the few translated Anime films worth watching.

Although the newest DVD release I cannot watch. It looks so much better, but I watched the old one for 15 years and the new voices are all wrong :(

Its not right unless someone is screaming
