After seeing this, it's safe to say the Russians truly are one step ahead of the rest of us. When doomsday comes we'll be sorry. We'll be stuck with our near 200hp traditional motorcycles that don't fold up neatly into canvas bags and tuck away in our little hatchbacks. Our motorcycles aren't 2-wheel drive and are too heavy to simply tug up a hill and they certainly don't float. What do these Russians know that we don't?
