Batpod Forever

Just a few days after the reveal of the new batcycle, another 2-wheel bat vehicle dubbed the "Batpod" is being unveiled. According to an article in the LAtimes. com,

It's not just because it's tricked out with grappling hooks, cannons and machine guns. The front and rear tires are both a monstrously huge 508 millimeters, and the engines are in the hubs of each wheel. Steering isn't by hand but by shoulder, since there aren't handlebars. Instead, there are shields that fit each arm like sleeves and have the ability to rotate around the bike's frame. The two foot pegs are set 3 1/2 feet apart on either side of the tank, which the rider lies on, belly down.

That tank also moves up and down — you know, in case Batman needs to dodge bullets or slide under semis.

And you know he will.

Sounds cool. Can't wait for 2008. Here is one other pic from filmick.
