Designers from Kazakhstan have come together to make a new, unique look (‘skid lids’) for motorcycle riders everywhere.
The company is now hoping to find a firm to manufacture them after being inundated with calls from bikers wondering how they could get their hands on them.
Rimma Fhevtfova, of Good! said: ‘We wanted to make something unusual. We wanted to make something that is outside the box and to try and think differently.
‘There is a growing cycling scene in Kazakhstan. It is much better than it was two years ago so we want to tap into that.
“Casey Putsch is one helluva Batman fan. Last week, we reminisced about 14 iconic Batmobiles, but Putsch’s turbine-powered Batmobile easily takes the cake as one of the best superhero car mods we’ve ever seen. Tossing in an iPad as its avionics and GPS systems is just icing and a cherry on top.
Based off of Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman Batmobile, Putsch packed in a real turbine jet engine from an old U.S. Navy drone helicopter that burns jet fuel, kerosene or diesel. Street-legal, the 20-foot long and 7.5-foot wide, 2,800 pound, two-seater Batmobile is said to be capable of 365 horsepower, or about the same as a Dodge Viper.
The original Burtonmobile had a CD player (high-tech, at the the time), but in keeping up with the times, Putsch made sure to upgrade it to what appears to be an iPad with 3G.
Bruce Wayne would be proud to drive Putsch’s Batmobile! The only thing we’re not liking is how loud that engine appears, but that’s just us looking for balls to bust. Putsch stuffed a drone helicopter engine in a car; who else has one like his?
Be sure to watch the video of Putsch’s turbine-powered Batmobile on YouTube here.”
