DON T MISS: iPhone 6s and Galaxy S7 faced off in a drop test and it was brutal

A few years ago, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA sponsored a competition where companies were challenged to come up with a compelling stealth motorcycle design.

The underlying goal?

Earlier this week, at the National Defense Industrial Association s Special Operations Forces Industry Conference, two prototype stealth bikes were on full display.

One bike — The Silent Hawk — was developed by Logos while the other bike –dubbed Nightmare — was developed by LSA Autonomy.
