* ''BikerMiceFromMars'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: they're humanoid mice, they come from Mars, and they're bikes. For the Badass part... Back on Mars they routinely fought tanks one-on-one and ''won''.
* Some ''{{Transformers}}'', such as Thrust from ''Beast Machines'', Sideways from ''Anime/TransformersArmada'' and Prowl from ''TransformersAnimated'', take this even further... they're Badass ''Bikes''. [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Oil_Slick_%28Animated%29 Oil Slick]] has yet to appear, but he looks the part and will likely fit the role to a T.

* ''{{Tekken}}'': Paul Phoenix. Bikes around a lot, and self-proclaimed "toughest guy in the universe". Though judging by his record of fighting (beaten several Mishimas in canon!), he's... really {{Badass}}.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo The Dreeson Incident]]'', the eponymous incident involves [[spoiler: Buster Beasley riding into a armed mob]] on a Harley. This combined with the HeroicSacrifice he makes after dismounting lead to him attaining major in-universe status as a MemeticBadass.

* Italy has a tradition of ''military'' bikers dating to before WorldWarII, when every ''Bersaglieri'' (quick assault infantry) regiment was given a recon platoon equipped with bikes, recon platoons that, if necessary, [[http://image.archivioluce.com/foto/high/ATTUALITA/GP13/A00049515.JPG could fight]]. To this day, Italian brigades still have a recon company equipped with bikes (including, of course, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garibaldi_Bersaglieri_Brigade Garibaldi bersaglieri brigade]]), said bikes' manufacturer Cagiva sells bikes to armies of all the worlds, and the ''Corazzieri'' (the guards of the Italian president, chosen among the tallest and most badass of the ''Carabinieri'') [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3f/2june2006_059.jpg can be seen on large bikes when on parade or escorting the president]].

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'': Referencing the Terminators in the movies, Cameron gets to cruise around on a motorcycle, complete with [[CoolShades sunglasses]]. (Except in her case, the giant motorcycle cop glasses she wears look a little [[{{Narm}} silly]] on petite Creator/SummerGlau).

* ''Film/ThePrincipal'': One of the things that marks Rick as a BadassTeacher is his motorcycle. At one point he drives it straight through the school hallways to prevent a rape-in-progress.
