Modular Moto

Modular Moto

DonGo is the stripped-down, bare-bones bike for those who like to DIY! In petrol and electric versions, either of the skeletal design can be delivered as flat-pack ready as possible. Certain components, like the frame and engines come standard, but the basic build of the rest of this modular moto makes it easily upgraded or modified to the user’s liking and riding preference. Better yet, it’s simplicity makes it affordable and incredibly easy to maintain for a lifetime of use.

Emergency Moto

Emergency Moto

While highly effective, the vast majority of emergency vehicles like firetrucks and ambulances are so large that they’re limited in the places they can go. For these hard to reach areas, there’s the Angell Unit. Meant to be supplemental to the arsenal of emergency vehicles, it’s loaded with a variety of firefighting and medical tools to provide fast reconnaissance and preliminary support, especially in isolated areas. As an added bonus, it looks badass!

What the... e-bike?

What the… e-bike?

My brain hurts & it’s because of the JOHAMMER. As a rider myself, I’m confused… excited… & sick at all once. “Love it or hate it. But just think of it.” are the words of the designers, so I guess they’ve achieved the reaction they’re after! Inspired by the idea of bull-riding, the aesthetic is similar to a mechanical bull… or maybe horse blanket depending on how you look at it. Like it or not, the thing is pretty fast for a (very) full fairing commercial electric, charges in 2.5 hours & definitely has people talking.

Triple the Fun

Triple the Fun

Named after the very feeling riders get on their bikes in the first place, the Keeway Euphoria 1130 is a concept motorcycle that sports a versatile (and trendy) triple cylinder engine that’s as comfortable commuting as it is twisting the canyons. As for aesthetics, it’s birdlike and scantily clad in geometric fairings so that it falls somewhere between naked-style and full-fairing… and that combined with a triple seem to put it in a sweet spot where it’s sure to win the admiration of riders from both styles.

State-of-the-art Scooter

State-of-the-art Scooter

The latest in a trend of fairing-clad scooters, the electric XQ’s semi-monocoque body does more than help aerodynamics. It offers sensible storage for the rider’s small belongings and cargo. It also houses the seat and steering column which automatically retract in OFF mode for both security and to save space. Rear-view microcams with smartphone syncing and solar panels for supplemental energy are just a few of its modern accessories. Check it out —>

Sixth Sense Motorcycle

Sixth Sense Motorcycle

The renowned Royal Enfield brand usually conjures thoughts of cafe racer, bullet-style bikes with retro aesthetics. Ditch what you know because the Royal Enfield Pioneer is anything but! Its futuristic styling unapologetically retains NONE of the Enfield’s classic styling… regardless, it’s a fresh look at the evolution of the e-motorcycle. Designed for new riders, its self-balancing system/autonomous riding mode give it a sort of “sixth sense” that helps train newbies and hone experienced rider’s skills.

BMW R90R - A Classic Revived

BMW R90R – A Classic Revived

I have often felt that most of the present day motorcycles are over designed. The designers’ attempts at aggressive form language usually results in the rides ending up with a liberal dose of visual clutter and makes me crave to see the honest and clean design style of café racers back on the road. And exactly for this reason, transportation designer Kévin Biolluz’s reinterpretation of the iconic cafe racer BMW R90S on its 40th birthday is interesting.

Modern Throwback Moto

Modern Throwback Moto

In pure cafe racer style, the Monocasco pays homage to retro motorcycle designs, but with a modern compact electric motor in substitute of a twin petrol engine normally found in this style. Its combination of slim fairs, single tube headlight, and fat tires give it a late 60s racer vibe. Fast looking, but not aggressive, this fashionable bike is one that the ladies will love.

Not your mother's moped.

Not your mother’s moped.

Though it’s almost 130 years old, the Piaggio brand is renowned for transportation that’s just plain different. The Piaggio PAM expands on this with a partially enclosed structure filled with smart-features like calibrated seat adjustment, photovoltaic solar energy-harvesting material, a HUD windshield, GPS navigation and even safety airbags. Like Piaggio’s MP3 scooter, the PAM also uses 3 wheels for added traction and balance, but these are reversed from front to back for a sportier riding feel.

BMW Motorrad Gets Mean

BMW Motorrad Gets Mean

Designer Frédéric Le Sciellour’s concept for a mid-weight, full-fairing BMW supersport is a step in the right direction for the brand who’s current models are functionally advanced but aesthetically stuck in the 80s. An under-belly exhaust, fender-less rear end, and more symmetrical shape give it a sleeker, sharper, more aggressive aesthetic. Not just for looks, the fairings are aerodynamically designed with grooves that direct cool air to the hottest parts of the bike’s engine while moving forward.

2-Wheels, No Tip!

2-Wheels, No Tip!

Gyrobike is a twist on the electric scooter that utilizes mechanical energy storage and gyroscope technology that allows the rider to navigate in an entirely new way. The system uses the principle of reverse block connection with heavy turners operated by a single control lever. The driver adjusts the lever to the manipulate the scooters lean and turning. With the lever in a vertical position, the vehicle will stay upright, but when positioned to the left or right, the angle changes accordingly.
