Royal Enfield 500cc Bullet Deluxe Motorcycle

BULLETPROOF BIKE Ever since 1955, when Royal Enfield opened its Chennai, India, factory, the rugged, easy-to-repair Bullet has been the go-to Himalayan touring motorcycle. (In 1997, after adventurer Renata Chlumska summited Tibet’s 26,289-foot Shishapangma, she rode her 500cc 1963 model 6,200 miles back home to Sweden.) But the last time Royal Enfield updated a bike was in ’55, which is why the arrival of the 500cc Bullet Deluxe, only a few hundred of which are available in the States, is reason to bust out the champagne and leather. In 2006, emission laws required the 107-year-old company to either stop production or revamp the powerhouse, which it did, switching to a more efficient, 80-mpg AVL Lean Burn engine—and leaving the rest as it’s always been. $5,000; royalenfield.com

Hi-Def, Low Fat

Sony HDR-TG1 Handycam

Sony HDR-TG1 Handycam
Sony’s ten-ounce, titanium-shelled HDR-TG1 Handycam is one of the smallest hi-def video cameras you can buy. With its Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 10x-zoom lens, it captures 1920×1080 hi-def video and 4MP stills—and still makes your first digital camera (wow, a million pixels!) look obese. $900; sonystyle.com

The Incredible Shrinking Camera

Sigma DP1 Camera

Sigma DP1 Camera
The Sigma DP1’s engineers had a vision: Elegantly cram the technology of a pro-level camera into a ridiculously small package. Witness their success: This king of compacts easily outguns the competition with built-ins like a wide-angle 16.6mm f/4 lens and an SLR-size (20.7×13.8mm) 14MP image sensor. Itchy trigger finger? $800; sigmadp1.com
