Anime: SoltyRei and The Blue Comet.

1/12 scale Model picts via uselessthoughts

"SoltyRei (ソルティレイ Sorutirei?) is a Japanese anime series by GONZO and AIC combining attributes of drama and sci-fi, about the inhabitants of a city where an Aurora prevents aerial travel. It is directed by Yoshimasa Hiraike and co-produced by TV Asahi, GONZO and AIC with music by Toshiyuki Ōmori.

Secondary character in the series Rose Anderson is vain, attention-seeking bandit who calls herself "The Blue Comet". She is honest, yet unyielding, proud, and selfish. Although she and her brothers donate their spoils to the Unregistered Citizens clustered in the city's underground and outskirts, they often cause large amounts of public damage in the process. She is armed with a laser-based hand pistol, and she rides a large motorcycle with three spherical wheels in front, driving wheels behind, and a cannon hidden in the frame. She occasionally hums the song "Return to love (Jazz version of the series theme music)" to calm herself."

The bike was designed by anime artist Range Murtata
