* ''VideoGame/FullThrottle'', a game about a biker gang's BadAss leader Ben, naturally features a variety of Cool Bikes. Ben's eventually gets the (limited) ability to fly, even.

* ''Animation/AachiAndSsipak'' loves this trope seeing as how every character has a cool motorcycle or at least motorcycle-like vehicles. Special mention goes to the character of Geko, a BadAss cyborg who has a bike with plenty of weapons.

*** ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'': All six get Shark Cycles, based on the ''Kakuranger'' bikes (of which there were originally three.) The ''Zyuranger'' bikes are seen in the background of one scene but not mentioned. The ''Dairanger'' bikes are toyline-exclusive.
*** ''PowerRangersZeo'': Zeo Jet Cycles for the starting five; the Gold Ranger prefers to use his energy streak ability to get places fast. Being an alien hero with a different origin, it makes sense that he would not have all the standard equipment created for the rangers of Earth. Sadly, one doesn't get made for Jason when he returns. ''Ohranger'' was the same (in terms of bikes, not the Gold Ranger's origin.)
*** ''PowerRangersTurbo'': Only the Blue Senturion has a bike; the car-themed Turbo team uses go-karts. Same for ''Carranger.''
*** ''PowerRangersInSpace'': The Silver Ranger's Galaxy Glider can transform into the Silver Cycle. Same for ''Megaranger.''
*** ''PowerRangersLostGalaxy'': Only the male Rangers get 'em. The female Rangers aren't bothered by this, probably because of their ability to always somehow ''already'' be wherever the boys are arriving by bike. The main transportation for the team is the flying Jet Jammer cars, which all five get. Poor Magna Defender is transportation-less. The Red Ranger's bike can turn into the Red Capsular Cycle for a finisher; this finishing mode is the only bike to come from ''Gingaman.''
*** ''PowerRangersLightspeedRescue'': The starting five all get bikes, but poor Ryan the Titanium Ranger is stuck riding the sidecar on Carter's bike. The sidecar could also be operated remotely for certain attacks. Also, the Trans-Armor Cycle is a bike that turns into armor becomes Carter's SuperMode. (The red bike and its CoolSidecar are all that's from ''Go Go V.'')
*** ''PowerRangersTimeForce'': The futuristic Vector Cycles were stored in miniature form until needed. Back in the year 3000, we could see the generic versions of them used by non-Ranger Time Force officers. Again the SixthRanger lacks one, but the Quantum Ranger probably doesn't mind, since ''he'' gets a jet. Also, the Red Ranger eventually gets a more weaponized bike called the Stratacycle. None of these were in ''Timeranger.''
*** ''PowerRangersWildForce'': All six get Savage Cycles based on their primary Zords (or in the case of Silver, it's the transformed state of his Zord and remains sentient!) When Cole's is destroyed, it's eventually replaced with a flying one given to him by Animus, based on the Falcon Zord. ''Gaoranger'' gave us the silver one only.
*** ''PowerRangersNinjaStorm'': Cam made three Tsunami Cycles for the main trio; the Thunder Rangers stole the designs and made improved ones. Strangely, Cam himself doesn't get one, even though he's the one who invented them ''and'' there's a green Tsunami Cycle in the toyline. In ''Hurricanger,'' only the Thunder Rangers had them (and apparently, that was the original plan in PRNS, as the commercials for the introduction of the Thunder Rangers described the Tsunami Cycles as theirs.) Hunter of the Thunder Rangers also gets the Ninja Glider Bike, which turns into a gliding vehicle.
*** ''PowerRangersDinoThunder'': They already had the Raptor Rider lizard mounts, but the CGI budget demanded that they were seldom seen outside of ''Abaranger'' footage. Enter the PR-exclusive Raptor Cycles for the primary colors, and [=ATV=]s for Tommy and Trent. The Blue Ranger, Ethan, also gets the Hovercraft Cycle. (Sadly, the teamup neglects to have an Ethan/Hunter Hoverbike Teamup.)
*** ''PowerRangersSPD'': Bikes for the boys only, and this time, it does get a LampshadeHanging. As does the fact that Red and Green's bikes (Power Rangers exclusives) have a lot of weapons the blue one doesn't. Also, the Omega Ranger has a unicycle-style bike, and if you want one of your own, [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-562726/Hold-tight-The-worlds-unicycle-MOTORBIKE.html you won't have to wait until 2025!]] Only Blue's bike and Omega's uni-bike were in ''Dekaranger.'' And of course, the coolest CoolBike of all is the mecha version, racing in faster than any of the other machines (yes, even the flying ones) and able to be ridden by the Megazord as well as turn into one of its own.
*** ''PowerRangersMysticForce'': ''StarWars''-style jet-bikes all around, except for the SixthRanger who gets a flying carpet. Unique to PRMF, the red one can turn into a more standard motorcycle. It'll be a while before we see bikes for everyone as standard Ranger equipment again.
*** ''PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'': Neither sentai nor PR gives everyone a personal vehicle while morphed, though PR gives a variety of vehicles for them to use while unmorphed. The Black Ranger, Will, gets the Hovertek Cycle, which can turn into a hovering vehicle.
*** ''PowerRangersJungleFury'': Red has a bike that transforms into a finishing mode a la the Red Capsular Cycle. Yellow has a cheetah-themed bike she uses once when turned into a punk/gangster type by a MonsterOfTheWeek spell; sadly, it is only seen on that one occasion.
*** ''PowerRangersRPM'': You'd think this vehicle-themed series would have more vehicles! ButtMonkey Ziggy's little moped is all that exists in the way of bike-ish vehicles. However, the HumongousMecha are animal/vehicle hybrids, and it's Ziggy gets the shark/bike hybrid. Watch out for its tail-whip strike! …Which he first activates purely by accident.
*** ''PowerRangersSamurai'': As said before, Mentor Ji is quite fond of his sweet ride.
*** ''PowerRangersMegaforce'': We get no bikes in this one, but when ''Samurai's'' Jayden and Ji guest star, it's only natural that Ji's riding his.

*** ''PowerRangersDinoCharge'': The new Dino Cycles aren't just fast, they've got tracking equipment. While only two have been seen at the same time and they're not Ranger-color-coded, instead being black and yellow like much of their equipment. They are actually created by combining two miniature unicycle-Zords, a detail shared by ''Kyoryuger'', [[spoiler: where there are six of them total, one for each of the main five and a sixth used by the second Kyoryu Violet]].
* ''ThenCameBronson'', a [[TheDrifter loner]] WalkingTheEarth action-adventure show starring Michael Parks that ran for only one season in 1969 and '70. He does his wandering on a 1969 XLH 900cc Harley-Davidson Sportster.

* ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'': Nikita's bike, Pretty, has been modified to the point where Nikita removed its make logo because there was next to nothing left from the original vehicle. It's now much faster, sturdier, more nimble, and has a few tricks up its sleeve.
