Hubless Wonder

Hubless Wonder

Miroslav Hundak’s FB R2000S concept is loosely based on the BMW R1200S, a Boxer model renowned for sporting performance and dynamic riding characteristics. The athletic look of the FB R2000S is contrasted with a particular touch of lightness in the form of not 2, but 3 hubless wheels with independent suspension and minimal fairings that in combination simply exude power and dynamism. Engineers will have their rightful criticisms, but there’s no denying that it looks fun to ride! Hit the jump for a sweet vid!

Electromagnetic Propulsion Bikes

Electromagnetic Propulsion Bikes

The Pandur 2L and Modelul Le aren’t quite motorcycles but we can’t call them “two-wheelers” either. In fact, “two-ballers” would be a more appropriate name. The vehicles are based on an electromagnetic propulsion system that involves the movement of a sphere inside a shell and suspension given by the electric field between the body and each sphere. Contact is only found between rider and vehicle body as well as the spherical rubber exterior and road.

Quick Change Cycle

Quick Change Cycle

The M2 electric racing motorcycle by designer Pedro Marcondes is one slick looking street bike. I’m loving the athletic stance and round spokes, but what really sets it apart is its race-ready construction. 6 sub-divided cells make it easy to remove, repair, or replace integral components during those time-critical pit stops.

Gladiator's Bike

Gladiator’s Bike

I have no words really. The title says it all. The renders… are just so brazen. Here’s the brief. In the 22nd century, the gap between rich and poor widen and life expectancy doubles. All that extra cash and time means people get bored. Enter the Gladiator’s Bike. A craft designed for a futuristic race where competitors battle it out to the finish line and win the people’s admiration.

A Better Folding Cycle

A Better Folding Cycle

The Union is a folding cycle that you can carry easily in public transport systems like buses and trains. Folded up, it’s more like backpack that doesn’t weigh you down. This 8-inch folding bicycle slams down in a jiffy and its most defining feature is that it combines the stem with the headlight and the saddle with taillight, for better visibility and safety.

Modern Twist on the Classic Peugeot

Modern Twist on the Classic Peugeot

The latest from motorbike enthusiast Madella Simone is this design inspired by the iconic and record breaking 1934 Peugeot 515. Unlike the original 4-stroke, this modern 515 powers its rear in-wheel engine with a rechargeable lithium battery. Another unusual feature, it’s also missing the usual hub that linked fork and body; instead, it features a sphere that permits the changing of the wheelbase.

What if Dyson Made Bikes?

What if Dyson Made Bikes?

Inspired by Dyson’s Air Multipliers, the Dyke bike (I’m serious) works on the same principles. Air flows through the bronze hollow cylinder creating an entrainment. The air is pulled, amplified by 1000000X, to pushed the bike upwards (stability) and forward (speed), all powered by electricity. The design is styled with an “air”odynamic in mind – sexy with a provocative elegance and unique ergonomics.

Let's Kiss The Skies on a Bike!

Let’s Kiss The Skies on a Bike!

The ParaMoto Trike is the convergence of designer Zvezdan Nedeljković’s three passions: flying, motorcycles and designing. Well kudos to that, because his zeal has translated into the beautifully ergonomic ParaMoto Trike! An ultralight electric vehicle that goes from a scooter to an elegant powered paragliding trike, in a jiffy! It’s off to a flying start!

Tesla E-Max Motorbike

Tesla E-Max Motorbike

In standing with the name it carries, the Tesla E-max is a far-out but awesome electric motorbike concept that features modern technologies and an unforgettable aesthetic. To supplement power to its 2 independent motors located in each wheel, the body is covered in a top layer of piezolectric material that converts compression strength into electricity and a second layer of Halite fiber that converts human heat. Pretty wild!

Hyundai Concept Motorcycle Stretches

Hyundai Concept Motorcycle Stretches

Inspired by musculature, this concept evokes a fluidic sculpture from the upper and lower sections intertwined together. The whole body is made up of materials that stretch and contract just like your muscles do and enables steering without any kind of assistive apparatus. When turning a corner, the entire body relaxes so that it can smoothly corner, and when accelerating, it contracts to form a rigid body. I’m totally intrigued by the idea. Not so sure about the design though.

Tree-hugging Bike

Tree-hugging Bike

Designed for short-range use, this compressed air powered two-wheeler is perfect for the urban environment. Designer Jurmol Yao imagines the Transport Hornet as a viable means of getting around for businesses like the postal service that move at low-speed and could refill at stations between stops. The benefits: zero-pollution, reusable quick-fill air cylinders, and no noise!

Bike of Prey

Bike of Prey

I love a wild-inspired design, especially when its influence is so obvious. The BMW Ghost is a glimpse into what the next generation of motorcycles will look like, and it goes without saying that animate-aesthetics are already starting to trend especially when it comes to vehicles and bikes (love it). Don’t let the gentle snowy white with blue detailing fool you- there’s a 1600 cc, 6 cylinder engine wrapped in that complex body. I’d name mine Hedwig.

Morphing E-Bike

Morphing E-Bike

Besides looking just plain sexy, the Shavit electric sport motorcycle features a very unique riding position system that makes shifting from everyday upright stance to racetrack oriented lean as easy as the push of a button. Handlebars, footpads, and seat height can be adjusted independently, allowing the bike to morph from racing superbike to urban tourer. Emphasizing the lack of a bulky fuel tank, the chassis and body are kept minimal but maintain the sharp, aggressive look of its street racer inspiration.
