The magazine makes no mention of any similarities with any other manga about high school girls who discover a new passion in a club.

Wow. Not merely satisfied with stealing the plot, title, and logo of a certain other series, they even stole the exclamation marks as if to shout it loud and proud.

Why not? They love martial arts that involve kicking and jumping around a lot in short skirts too...

I'm not too informed on motorcycles, but isn't the girl riding backwards?

I don't think this could be more fail if they tried. Laughing

They're not actually riding in the picture. They're sitting idly on it. The bike is parked since the short curly black hair girl (suprised that this hairstyle, quite original) doesn't even have her hands on the grips.

Maybe that's how the story starts.

2 girls join a motorcycle club. Neither knows how to ride. The drive off a cliff and die. The end. lolololol

I thought high school students weren't allowed to get drivers licenses in Japan? Seem to recall a few instances in anime where characters either got in trouble for driving scooters and motorcycles or people were shocked to see that they could drive. I guess maybe there would be exceptions for club activities. Either way, looking at the creators profile on another site it seems all of his works are either adult titles or hentai doujins. My expectations for this show couldn't possibly be lower.

Actually, the minimum age to get a motorcycle license (for something with a less than 400cc engine) in Japan is 16. There's a few instances in anime of characters in high school riding motor scooters or motorbikes and it not really being an issue, too. (Harima Kenji from School Rumble, for example.) Apparently some schools do ban their students from traveling to or from school by motorcycle/scooter, so that might be what the trouble was over. (Fujibayashi Kyou from Clannad, for example.) Shock might have been over the fact that the character in question bothered to, or that they were able to pass the exam.

I'm not exactly expecting a masterpiece, but it sounds like it might be some fun if it doesn't take itself too seriously. In any case, I wouldn't bet on seeing it translated any time soon.
