C#3 Motorcycle is the latest design from Stefan Toth that expresses freedom. It’s a conceptual electric motorbike that combines conventional design with advanced electric technology.
One of the most exciting features of motorcycles is openness. A car works a bit like a membrane, isolating driver and passengers from their environment, inhibiting the feel of wind, the scents, the sounds (Ok, cabrios are exception :). Motorcycles are following contrary manner. Traditional bikes, naked bikes don`t hide the rider neither technical details. Similar principles are used in this concept as well. Accent the openness, the air can pass through the front headlight, between battery cells. The dashboard is transparent, technical details are exposed. Even if it not a fuel engine, wiring, battery can be designed attractive too.
Charging times of e-vehicles are always crucial. In case of C#3, besides charging battery directly there is a possibility of quick switch of the batteries. C#3 LED elements are both for lighting and for improving visibility of the bike. The currently used turn indicators are really tiny, hardly visible. Here, the volume of hydraulic brake fluid is illuminated, the transparent reservoir is the lighting surface. Chain drive is inside tubes of the rear fork and the engine is part of the fork, close to rotating pivot. Therefore, chain is fully covered reducing need of cleaning maintenance.
