This Virago from Kerkus in Malaysia is an oddball example, but there’s a reason for it. “The owner is a chef and runs a restaurant,” says shop founder Azahar. “He had an accident on this bike a few years back. He came to us wanting to transform it ‘Kerkus-style’—but he also wanted us to design it so...

I slept in an Audi RS 6 Avant wagon on a 14-degree night to prove that you don't need an SUV for 'utility'
