The E-Raw concept electric motorcycle combines wood and steel for a one-of-a-kind look

We don’t usually feature concept vehicles, generally opting to wait until they are ready for release to the general public. But a new e-bike from Expemotion has caught our eye and we had to share it with you. The E-Raw concept blends natural and man-made materials that results in a stunning two-wheeled creation. From the simple steel tube chassis to the wooden seat that wraps around the motorcycle acting as placeholder for a would-be gas tank, this bike is eye-popping.

It has a built-in spot on the dashboard for your smartphone and a red/white metal enclosure for the motor. Amongst all the prototypes that we have seen recently, the E-Raw is one of our favorites. No word on its release or future plans, but you can head over to Expemotion for more details.

Lexus just teased a new hoverboard and it looks awesome

Update (7/30 10:30am): Lexus has released another teaser video, this time announcing that it will finally take the wraps of its new hoverboard on August 5th.

Lexus is showing off a hoverboard today – yeah, you read that right – and it looks pretty sick. By combining liquid nitrogen-cooled conductors and magnets, it will lift a rider off the ground while standing on a bamboo platform. The nitro does make a pretty cool effect with the slight smoke billowing out. There aren’t many details at this time, but it certainly is worth checking out the teaser video:

Turns out, Lexus isn’t the only car company working on some cool technology. Ford has detailed a new e-bike that can fold up into your car’s trunk. Called the MoDe:Flex, although we don’t have much information other than that, Ford has released a video showing it cruising around.

It can sync with the Mode:Link smartphone app to plan routes, tracking progress, etc. Although it’s currently a prototype, this would be a pretty killer way to get around town.
