We can make cars so we can make bikes too?

I wonder how many of those have actually been designed by car manufacturers.

The 'Aston Martin' certainly wasn't, it's just a rebadged Factor.

It's a shame BMW didn't make such a hash of building aero engines for the Nazis. The war would've been over by Christmas 1939.

[pedant] Up till Christmas 1939 the JU52 transport was the only BMW powered aeroplane in widespread use. Their best war time engine was the 801, which powered the FW190A, but that engine did not enter production until 1940. [/pedant]

Though I take your point about their bike being awful.

Doing 60mph along the A34 today I had chance to have a close look using my rear view at one of those Audi's
Please explain.

It's not actually written anywhere that manufacturers have to stick at what they are good at. There are some seriously ugly bikes there. That Yamaha thing for starters.

Many Audi drivers are selfless in their efforts to reduce CO2 emissions by driving very close to the car in front so that wind resistance is reduced and fuel saved
Fit person on the bike then, around this way it is the Ford's that tailgate.
 
The Audi actually looks like a sensible commuter, discs, belt drive, hub gears, rack and dynamo lights. The sort of bike I'd expect from a German manufacturer, I'd be surprised if it's not supplied by one of them.
But it will probably be bought at vast expense because it says 'Audi' on it. And that paint....
