    Engadget describes it as a motorcycle made by people who think boxy is in, like Dell does. It's supposed to be a "zero emission, zero impact speed machine", and behaves like an animal.

    Don't forget to watch the youtube video.

    It looks so cool in my opinion. And the way it stars, lifting up, is very clever.

    Sounds awful!
    When they say behaves like an animal they mean it handles like a cow.

    I like to think I'm environmentally conscious, but when it comes to bikes I say bollocks!

    You have got to be kidding me - it's hideous. Even a Deauville has more charm.

    I guess the appropriate slogan would be, "boxy, but unsafe."

    So I'm the only one who thinks that it isn't hideous? And looks pretty okay.

    Yes, but one a Quasar is so cool-looking it will make other road users crash when you drive past them:

    i think its a pretty cool design actually, as for comfort, that may leave a lot to be desired

    You mean it was actually made for someone?!
    I thought it was just a concept Dodge churned out to grab Automotive headlines.

    The Nucleus' concept is kind of cool, but I wouldn't be caught driving it.
