But their complex electronics and liquid-cooled, fuel injected motors make them notoriously hard to customize. Superficial changes are a walk in the park, but going deep requires a master’s degree in engineering. The thing is, Triumph’s retro range has actually been around for almost two decades—and when it first launched, the bikes were far simpler. T...

Amazon’s Zoox unveils electric robotaxi that can travel up to 75 mph

Six years ago, Zoox launched quietly with a mighty mission: build and commercialize just about every aspect of a robotaxi service from the self-driving software stack and on-demand ride-sharing app to the management of the fleet and an unconventional vehicle that would transport passengers. Now, it’s finally lifting the veil on its multi-year effort.
