TriMove

I get it- the hubless wheel has yet to reach its full technical potential, but set aside your speculation for just a moment to admire this striking trike concept. Most three 3-wheelers combine the worst of motorcycles & cars: no leaning into corners, exposure to the elements, & no lane splitting- but the narrow, tilting 3-wheeled TriMove has all the agility & aerodynamic styling you’d expect from a fierce motorbike. It’s triangle footprint provides balance even when it’s not moving. And the three disc braking system means it requires far less braking space, making for an exceptionally fool-proof bike that doesn’t sacrifice style.

    It's a concept of Yamaha RD 135 + Dodge bike?

  • Okay, I'll play along and ignore the hubless wheels.

    How about the amazingly unergonomic handle-bars which don't appear to have any functional capability at all? The don't help riders support themselves due to the angle. They don't aid in steering in any apparent way. They don't provide breaking or shifting functionality. They don't provide signal indicators.

    On a similar note, what about the foot pegs with no associated functionality? Where's the shift lever and rear brake lever? Unnecessary perhaps?

    How about the headlight, which looks as if it's lifted from a cheap battery operated flashlight and would appear capable of as much illumination?

    How about the missing mirrors?

    How about the lack of shock absorbers for the front- and rear-wheels and an apparently sprung seat? Along with a very unpleasant ride, this would likely decrease any value of dual front brakes.

    How about the two tiny contact patches in the front being roughly equivalent to one larger contact patch, making dual brakes being rather beside the point? The challenge in motorcycles is ensuring that you maximize breaking without locking the front wheel.

    How about a tricycle with a front wheel spread of 5 inches is highly susceptible to being knocked over by passing kittens or gusts of wind when parked? And can't be parked on anything other than extremely flat ground?

    I'll assume this thing is electric as well, which is the only thing that could explain the lack of little things like exhausts or gas tanks.

    All in all, it's clear the designer has never ridden a motorcycle, probably never touched one and possibly never seen one outside of video games.

    Cheers,

      But it looks cool.

    • Jimmy C says:

      Why do you have to say cheers at the end. Quit being sarcastic and quit being such a jerk. It's a CONCEPT for crying out loud!

      • engineering_thoughts says:

        "Cheers" is a very common sign off in much of the world. Much like saying "Regards" at the end of a message. It is not sarcastic or meant to insult. In fact, such things are necessary to keep open conversation.

        That said, a design concept that fails to research the subject matter is not design – it's art. Design can be artful but not all art is design.

        No need to cry – especially out loud.

        All the best,

  • Thx all guys for comments :)
    @Danylo Araujo : Nope , that is not mix of anything. It is just a form that comes to my mind and I turned it to the bike
    @Mike Barnard : first of all thanks to mention lots of things about the motorbike and design rolls, but let me say some point of idea about this art or design or what ever u call it:
    first of all this is a concept and so many lows and engineering issue maybe not fit in it cause I thought freely without any limitations, like some sci-fi movies and animations like some fame guys like feng zhu and syd mead or scott robertson , if u have a deep look on their works , they don't keep themselves in limitation of functionality.
    about the handle bar, it is like a joy stick that play in any direction and each one separately, some action like braking may work when u pull both of them together , or stepper light just by touch and direct one of handles in that direction or so many task like accelerating by pushing them together to front…. u can imagine it man, just watch some sci-fi movies with giant bikes or vehicles that not looks work with current technology, with out any ergonomic that we describe or learn in our current ergonomic science.
    mirror = HUD
    shift leveler :)) no need in mechanical or objective way, man
    and I have reason for everything that u say.
    yes I never ride a bike except 3 or 4 times in my childhood but I watch alot and I dont like the ordinary motorbikes, no need to obey the lows.
    everything is possible and impossible is impossible πŸ˜‰
    CHEETS πŸ˜‰

    • Hi Mohammed . . .

      Thanks for the kind-of explanations. However, operating joy sticks that also have to support body weight under significant acceleration and deceleration doesn't work. I'd hoped that wasn't your actual intent, but gave you the benefit of the doubt on that.

      I don't buy the argument that concept-justifies-anything unless you're putting forward a concept for Tron. If it's a concept for the real world it needs to be thought through more in my opinion.

      That said, my feedback wasn't intended to be mean-spirited but obviously the tone was. Apologies for that.

      Cheers,
      Mike

    @Mike :
    Hi Mike, and Thanks again , first of all I really enjoyed the way u comment my design, and it is really good to get various opinion.no need to apologies so dude πŸ˜‰
    about the body weight I put a part like elbow holder in middle that when bike rider lay on the bike to ride it his body weight is on the body of the bike and his elbow that lay on elbow holder , make life easy for him to get in to that joystick.
    I accept that design for real world for NOW need to obey recent engineering and ergonomic and scientific lows, but as u said my concepts are abit far away of common lows, my passion goes for more sci-fi concept that may happen in far future or maybe never happen in real world.
    thx again dear

  • Daniel Cariño Jr says:

    i agree with above with there needing to be a place for a license plate, my only thoughts on this is yes it is a great design however i would much like to see it be less angular. also maybe some sort of shield for front and mirrors maybe to add on to the design;s technical aspects those could pop up after you start it up?
