Honda CB1100 RS 5Four

Price: ~$20,748
From: hondaengineroom.com

Like what you see here? Too bad — this tribute to the enduro bikes of the ’80s is only on sale in the U.K., and only in extremely limited numbers. Just 54 will be made, each at a tall price…but you’re sure to get a lot of looks when you ride down the street.

Roeg Peruna Helmet

Price: ~$271
From: getroeg.com

From: joedoucet.com

You can’t buy Joe Doucet’s Sotera helmet, unfortunately — it’s just a design concept for the time being. But with its color-changing shell designed to let other riders and drivers know where you are and what you’re doing, we can hope somebody takes this idea and runs with it.
