Kamen Rider Motorcycles - Showa Era

Motorcycles are very essential to Kamen Rider, even thoug they are not as focused on in Heisei Era as they were in the Showa Era, cycles are still part of the DNA of the Kamen Riders. I am only covering the motorcycles.

The Cyclone is a machine given to the first Kamen Rider by Professor Midorikawa. The New Cyclone is a new machine designed by Hongo, Taki and Tachibana. Both versions were given to the second Kamen Rider.

The Hurricane is V3's motorcycle which was used in his rider form. It can execute the Hurricane Dash and the Hurricane Last Dash in mid-air.

Riderman uses a regular Suzuki 250cc motorbike, dubbed the "Rider Machine".

Didn't Acrobatter take on new forms with each of Black RX's upgrades?
