For all you riders out there who want a bike they can take on any terrain and can handle the congestion of an urban environment, then take a look at the 2015 Ducati Scrambler ($8600). Ducati has just pulled back the curtain on their ode to their single-cylinder Scrambler that was in production until 1975.The newer version features an air-cooled 803cc V-Twin that gives you about 75 horses at 7000 rpm with 50 lb-ft of peak torque. The tank on the newer scrambler has been lowered like earlier dirt bikes and the lift on the handlebars force the rider into more of an upright position. Like most scramblers the gas tank is on the smaller side at 3.57 gallons.The tires and wheels depart from a standard sportbike setup with an 18" 120/70 on the front and an 180/55 17" on the rear. Each of these were specially designed by Pirelli specifically for this bike.But that's not the best part of this bike. For a price as low as $8600 you can own a 2015 Ducati Scrambler.

This has to be one of the coolest uses for a 3D printer that I've seen. Theo Jansen is a Dutch artist who is known for creating gigantic creatures out of PVC that can walk on their own. He's taken the same structures, shrunk them down, and 3D printed them to create the 3D Printed Strandbeests ($56-$113). There are four of these creatures available in various sizes which your can purchase from Shapeways. There are also two propeller kits available, and when attached they allow your Strandbeest to move with a little air from your mouth, fan, or blower. Check out the video below the features both the full-sized and miniature Strandbeests.

With a dark grey tank with gold pinstripes, with the rest of the bike in black.The DA#3 is currently for sell so if you're looking for something out of the ordinary hit 'em up.
