    Well, kind of. You get your choice. Russian steel or Japanese (really) weird:

    Nice, I was in Russia in June 2017, haven't seen anything like that, plenty of ugly old cars though (I mean made in Russia), but many fancy Nissan-like-Jeeps as well. How are they going to cope with the wind and cold riding such bikes in winter? Maybe only for like 6 months a year?
    Recently read an article written by some Russian journalist about electric self-driving cars and how they are going to replace accommodations in the future https://tranio.com/world/spotlight/s...y-market_5354/. I wonder how will they keep these self-driving homes heated and how much they are going to pay for that?
