click above image to view gallery of Kimi Räikkönen's Iceman 2

Sure, you may think that racing Formula 1 in the Championship-winning Ferrari is pretty hardcore, but Kimi Räikkönen has an even better idea of what being hardcore really means. Or not. Whatever... what we do know is that Marcus Walz of Hardcore Cycles has made Räikkönen another bike. The first one was known as "Iceman", and the second has been imaginatively named "Iceman 2". The machine itself is pretty cool, although the basic premise of the machine is decidedly low-tech. Sure, it's got a single-sided swingarm, but no rear suspension to speak of. The fork may be high-tech, but it's placed at such an angle as to undermine its operation.

All of the preceding is beside the point, however. This bike is not meant to out-handle a Supermoto or out-race a GSXR. It's meant to be as much about style as function, and the rider is expected to show it off whenever possible. Good thing the bike looks so good, then. And when Kimi wants to go fast... that's not so much of a problem either.

      I like this a lot. Nice lines, nicely put together, and no tired, tacky chrome.

      I wonder how fast this thing can go before the rider get pushed off by air resistance.

        Not to worry; that baby'll never leave the garage...

      Industrial design of the "Metalocaplypse" school.

      Did Ferrari have anything to do with this? They got prancing horses all over the damn thing.

      seems like Ferrari is slapping its name onto everything nowadays.

      Forget General Electric, I'll wait for the FERRARI fridge!

      putting Ferrari logos on a bike is lame; only a world champion, and Ferrari F1 driver can get away with it.

      Is this the one that makes cotton candy in the rear wheel well ?
      • 7 Years Ago
      too bad this won't sound like a Ferrari...

      Hope Kimi doesn't ever go over a pothole - with no rear suspension and with his legs that far forward, there's nothing to absorb the blow, unless he keeps his tyres half-inflated. :-D
