Happy birthday MTV – 30 years

The Derringer Bespoke Collection

A modern interpretation of the board tracking racing motorcycles of the 1920s, Derringer cycles capture the simple, pared-down, aggressiveness of early motorsport while delivering an intricate level of personalized customization. Like their owners, no two Derringer cycles are the same.

For the discerning rider, Derringer offers the opportunity to own a truly unique, one-of-a-kind motorbike that combines innovative engineering with a classic high-performance aesthetic.

Powered by a moto-hybrid drivetrain, Derringer cycles are built for our modern age. With superb fuel efficiency they have a range of 180 miles per gallon. The ultra-clean four-cycle powerplant also meets stringent CARB tier 3 emissions standards. Derringer Cycleslink

The vase is gone and the profile is now closer to that of the iconic original. The third-generation Volkswagen Beetle will arrive in Singapore early next year after its recent world debut in Shanghai, Berlin and New York all on the same day.

This new Beetle replaces the New Beetle, which was introduced in 1998 and was better known for its three semi-circle silhouette and kitschy flower vase on the dashboard.
