NEWS: Meet the world's fastest iPod

OK, so we've seen custom-built cars with outlandish ICE systems, and multi-million pound yachts with sophisticated home cinema systems, but this was a first even for us - a Kawasaki motorbike with built-in Harman Kardon Drive+Play iPod system.

Not only is the bike decked out with a huge array of speakers, including a subwoofer on top of the petrol tank, but nestling inside the front fairing is a slot for you iPod, and mounted in the dash is the Drive+Play scroll wheel for selecting your favourite tunes when you're out on the road.

The keen-eyed among you will spot a small video screen on the back of the seat - not sure how useful that's going to be with someone riding the bike, but fellow bikers can gather round for a bit of a boogie when you park up.
