Chopper Scooter, I'm Totally Serious

Chopper Scooter, I’m Totally Serious

If scooters are too passe for your bad boy, Jesse James lovin’ ego, check out this Chopper Scooter. The motorized mover was designed with linear lines and flowing shapes in mind – anything to hide it’s true identity. Great way to bring up those kids and get them all indoctrinated into the culture.

Skeletal Electrics on Two Wheels!

Skeletal Electrics on Two Wheels!

Oh my goodness, this is a shiny, sharp looking triad of motorcycle vehicles. Before you get down too far in the description, take note that the red and the black are diesel/electric engines while the gray is an electric only, working with the battery. Then below that in this project post’s gallery you’ll see the “shared” battery station, which is quite the looker and something I’d sure like to see in the real world for real. Designer Paolo De Giusti presents three Naked bikes.

Two Quarters Of A Bike

Two Quarters Of A Bike

TwoQuater is a power-assisted electric bicycle that folds up when necessary. It sources the power from a lithium battery, which housed at the back of the bike in a black case. The power-assist comes into play when riding uphill and during the downhill course it recharges the battery. For a subway ride or up the elevator, the bike folds into half, but if you need to stash it in your car’s trunk or stow it away, it can fold up further to become a quarter of its size.

The Energy Revolution in a Bike

The Energy Revolution in a Bike

Here we go, it’s another revolution. How many revolutions can this world take?! Someday we humans will blow the Earth up. You betcha. Designer Augustin Barbot looks forward to the near future, remembering the Industrial Revolution in the West and envisioning an Energy Revolution for us all! And here, in this vehicle, is that revolution encapsulated. You drink the energy drink and the power comes out! You sit on the “OPEL EWOL”, put the energy of your body in, and SPEED comes out. Hot, futuristic speed.

Car Height Bike Ride

Car Height Bike Ride

This bike mimics the height at which you sit when you’re in a mid-sized car. That right there is amazing an innovation enough for me to do a post on it, but check it out, there’s more. The seat is also the same back angle and puts you in a place that allows your hands and feet to be in the same position as they’d be in your auto as well. Why? So you’re at eye-level with the rest of the traffic that’s flying around you. And it’s electric, if you want.

Cocoon on Wheels

Cocoon on Wheels

The name of this project is the “Hyundai Aebulle” concept car, and it’s designed by Shane Baxley. The word Aubulle, when translated directly from Korean, means “cocoon.” When you are in the cocoon, you are definitely cocooned. A sort of lay-down seating situation with the vehicle wrapped all around you. Cruising through the streets on a luge of Aubulle. The mobility and speed of a motorcycle with a cocoon-like safety for the body of the driver. Plus super fabulous light strips.

I Want To Be A Foreman

I Want To Be A Foreman

The lifestyle of a construction foreman never appealed to be because it’s not glamorous enough. We are talking about me here. I’m about as reserved as Cher on Oscar night. I digress. If the TRIANGLE is what future foremen will be riding around in, then sign me up. Yes its got all-terrain mobility and an electric motor but HELLO, it’s a CATEPILLAR disguised as a scooter. I get to be in charge and do so in one of these things? Loves it.

Two Motorcycles Become One Car

Two Motorcycles Become One Car

This is the real deal in modern wild design. This is the “Plug-In” affordable youth mobility project by Ramesh Gound. According to Gound, there is a big “buy 1 get 1 free” shopping attitude in the market around the Ahmedabad area of India. This simple concept gave Gound the idea to take two motorcycles and attach them in the middle. Each motorcycle is owned by its respective party, a young person with a big appetite for sports vehicles but a small pocketbook, then they attach. Once two motos attach in the middle, they become that fantastic sports car from heaven.

Harley Futurism

Harley Futurism

Let’s talk about the future of Harley Davidson. Motorcycles from OUTER SPACE! And what does that mean? Laser cuts. Laser cuts all over the place. Options. Wheels. Great things. All of this under the title “2020 Harley Davidson 1,” designed by Jonathan Russell. There’s other features, like two ways to sit, greatnesses here and there, but the most fabulous of these is the Apple Computers inspired laser-etched perforations in the aluminum which gives translucency enough to let the LED lights underneath shine through.

When Two Wheels Are Better Than Two

When Two Wheels Are Better Than Two

Let’s deal with some harsh reality here. Aside from letting Lindsay Lohan drive your SUV on a saturday night, the most dangerous vehicle to operate on the planet is a motorcycle. Designer Igor Chak knows this fact all to well. He has designed a concept that does its best to make your two wheeled lifestyle a lot less horrifying. Incorporating every bell and whistle you can imagine into this concept, Igor has rendered up a motorcycle that would make Tony Stark rust with jealousy.

Advance Carbon Fiber Electric Bike

Advance Carbon Fiber Electric Bike

Thinking caps on because this takes some imagination to digest. The HMK 561 is a carbon fiber bike with special electrical properties that hold power right inside the frame. Carbon fiber is highly conductive so the designer uses it as a power distribution network instead of  wires. The power drives the lights and the motors in between the rims but get this… there’s regenerative braking. All that energy drives a system that turns the wheels using a counter-turning axel in lieu of gears and chains.
