This isn't the motorcycle you need. It's the motorcycle you deserve. You'll be able to conquer Bane and the morning rush hour commute aboard this insane Harley V-Rod mod. And yes, those are dual flamethrowers and shotguns up front.

Built from a 2002 V-Rod chassis, this unique whip packs enough gadgets to make Bruce Wayne salivate. For one, the Batpod's original v-twin engine has been removed entirely to make room for a 65HP HPEVS electric motor‚ÄĒslightly less than the original engine but boasts an additional 17 ft-lbs of torque and runs nearly silently. Its Optima Bluetop batteries only hold enough charge for a 40 mile round trip but it's not like you'll be stuck in traffic, what with the dual flamethrowers and integrated shotguns built into its front forks.


Those don't officially come "with" the bike‚ÄĒno, no, that is super illegal‚ÄĒbut they are packed along with the bike as a "free" option. As the seller explains:

Although the flamethrowers and cannons are in a fully authentic & operable state as pictured, the cannon trigger breach blocks and flamethrower pressure release valves are NOT INCLUDED as part of this sale listing. Without these components, the weapons are INOPERABLE. These INOPERABLE weapons that are included as part of this specific sale are to be considered as DECORATION ACCESSORIES ONLY.

UPDATE: The seller has removed the Batpod listing from eBay and nixed all of his YT demo videos. The product page now sports a "This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available" banner.
