* The bike created by the Librarian, and ridden by [[TheGrimReaper Death]] in ''Discworld/SoulMusic''. It actually falls to bits quite early on, but the ''idea'' of the bike remains, resembling light reflecting off a gleaming machine, only without the machine. Unfortunately, because it was created in accordance with rock music tropes, it isn't designed to slow down, much less stop safely. It's ''meant'' to crash at the end of the eighth verse. ''Eighth'', as the whole sequence is an extended tribute to [[MeatLoaf Meat Loaf]]s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9WeTf67YLY Bat out of Hell]], down to the ''silver black phantom bike''.

** Then there's the Honda NM4 (Also known as the "Vultus" in some parts of the world). The result of what happens when Honda tells their engineers and designers to go ahead and make a CoolBike, originally with the intent of displaying their skills as a concept bike, and they decide to make essentially a public love letter to the design of [[Manga/{{Akira}} Kaneda's motorcycle]] and other futuristic designs. Honda realized it was realistic and practical enough to go ahead and put it into mass production.

** There's also its successor, the Gold Wing Valkyrie, where the design changes and improved power-to-weight ratio have firmly shifted the bike into the "Power Cruiser" or Muscle Bike territory.

* Taken to ludicrous amounts in ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' with Carol's (as of yet) unnamed motorcycle. It functions as a platforming power-up more so than a vehicle. It makes sense for it to allow Carol to travel faster and run enemies over when at full speed, but it can also do double jumps whose flipping damages enemies, ride up and down walls, climb ladders, and bounce from jump pad to jump pad, and it never ever runs out of fuel. The only downside is that it's destroyed once it takes enough damage, but Carol can ride on it again if she finds a fuel canister somewhere.

* ''Videogame/PlanetSide 2'' has the Flash, a quadbike with massive CharacterCustomization potential. Unarmed by default, it can carry several flavors of mounted weapons, has a seat on the back for drive-by-shooting, can fit a NitroBoost that lets it ''climb walls'' or a [[InvisibilityCloak cloaking field generator]], and repair itself. Visual customization is possible through RevenueEnhancingDevices, like glowing TronLines, sweet new wheels, custom bodywork, and so on. The ATV was also present in the original ''Planetside'' albeit as three separate "variants" with no customization and only one seat.

* The ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' Cyclotron. Launches right from the Turbokat... Comes in both one and two seat varieties, has all sorts of weapons, fires miniature versions of a lot of the Turbokat's missiles. And it has a ''jet'' engine.

* Speaking of ''MegaManX'': The second game introduces the Ride Chaser, the bike variant of the [[MiniMecha Ride Armor]] with built in guns. They also lack wheels - they hover off the ground. The fourth game makes them cooler with a damaging dash move, and lets you ride it on water as well (much like a jetski). And in the eighth game they even come with moves that fit your characters.
