Created by Italdesign’s Automobili Speciali division, it was unveiled two years ago, and only five units were ever produced. This is the fifth and final example, and it comes from a wealthy car collector, known as @mwvmnw on social media. RMSothebys, which is charged with finding it a new home at the auction that takes place on April 11-12 in Essen, Germany, says that it only has delivery and testing mileage and hasn’t been registered.

Since the days of ZX-11 back in the 1990s, Kawasaki has been famous for building the biggest, baddest motorcycles around. Sure, Honda and Suzuki stole Kawi’s thunder with the Blackbird and Hayabusa, respectively– but line either of those up alongside the latest Kawasaki H2 and see what bikes pulls ahead. Keep that in mind, then, as I tell you the following: Kawasaki has patented a unique, oil and liquid cooled radiator system purpose-built for electric bikes. The implications for the electric motorcycle market are potentially staggering, considering that even the ultra-quick Energica Ego and big voltage Zero models can make do with “just” air cooling. Heck– Kawasaki’s EV cooling system seems more complicated than Tesla’s, and the assumption is that Kawi’s e-bike will need all that cooling because its engine will be massively powerful. Just how powerful the upcoming electric Kawasaki will eventually be is anyone’s guess. It may … [Read more...] about Kawasaki Could be Building the Fastest Electric Motorcycle Ever
The Associated Press Published 6:29 PM EDT Mar 21, 2019 New York – “Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke revealed Thursday that she has had two life-threatening aneurysms, and two brain surgeries, since the show began. An unknown actress before landing the role, Clarke had just finished filming her first season as Daenerys Targaryen, the “Mother of Dragons,” on the HBO fantasy series when she had the first aneurysm in 2011 at age 24 while working out at a London gym. “Just when all my childhood dreams seemed to have come true, I nearly lost my mind and then my life,” Clarke writes in a first-person story in The New Yorker . “I’ve never told this story publicly, but now it’s time.” Clarke said she had been healthy all her life, but was suffering from serious stress when the artery burst in her brain. Much of it came from constant press questions about the nudity of her character, a conquering queen, in the … [Read more...] about Actress Emilia Clarke says she’s had 2 aneurysms
Melissa Nann Burke The Detroit News Published 6:24 PM EDT Mar 21, 2019 Washington — The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday said it fined a Michigan-based phone company $2.32 million for switching the phone service of customers without their permission and for deceptive marketing practices by its telemarketers. The FCC's investigation concluded that because the switch was not authorized, the resulting charges on the phone bill amounted to what is called "cramming" — the practice of placing charges on a consumer's bill without permission, which is also a violation of the federal Communication Act. The FCC's investigation into the Waterford-based Long Distance Consolidated Billing Co. dates to at least 2015 and included a review of more than 70 complaints filed against the company by consumers, many of which were small businesses. The customers alleged that representatives from Long Distance Consolidated Billing … [Read more...] about FCC fines Michigan firm $2.3M for improper phone service switching
