SpeedOneSeat Concept Car for Urban Areas

Designed as a side project, SpeedOneSeat is a single-seater concept transportation to cruise urban environment.

The SpeedOneSeat was a side project of the 3rd semester of my Transportation Interior Design study in Reutlingen, Germany. It is a small and fast 1-seater for track days and city-traffic. The Urban Go-Kart! Motorcycle fun in a car! The SpeedOneSeat is perfect for the city as for track days because it is small, light, fast, and fun. Designed as a smaller, less expensive brother of the KTM X-BOW, it is the ultimate entry-level fun car.

MV 800 RvR Twin Concept Motorcycle by Lee Thompson

Submitted by Lee Thompson, this concept motorcycle design was inspired by MZ concept, keeping MZ DNA, it also features Streetfighter characteristics. You can read his explanation below.

I recently saw an MZ concept article here and was impressed, however looking at a design in today’s and 5 years time or so design I feel an MZ RvR 800 V-twin (not a Ducati) would be the way to go. Make it different but with a slightly Street fighter/ custom street appeal, but keep a little of the MZ DNA. The frame DNA and a close color flash back to the old blue and the bike would then start to establish an MZ identity, maybe the offering of something unique for example a retracting pillion seat.

The street type custom image leans towards a cut down solo seat look, but what happens when the question of two up riding is asked for? I believe an aggressive stance should be considered so establish an identity, also maybe an introduction (in this case Green) an idea not just to offset plainness but establish an identity whilst offering the possibility of other or alternative customer options to. The exhausts are uncomplicated but again an alternative and identifying attribute to the RvR along with the single sided tube type swinging arm.

Alpha Concept Car : Single Seater Vehicle with Wooden Chassis

Alpha is a concept car that creates a link between a regular car and a lighter vehicle such as bicycle or a motorcycle. Due to its compact size (3000 mm length,1500 mm width, and 900 mm high ) this electrically powered single-seater vehicle would be ideal for a dynamic young population living in continuously growing cities of the future. The uniqueness of this car lies in its wooden chassis. Designed by Rustam Schogenoff, you can read his explanations about this futuristic car below.

The idea here is to replace all the complex and heavy engineering components of a vehicle by technical properties of the natural materials. One of these materials is wood. This simple material has a number of excellent building physics properties. The main ones are: strength, hardness, lightweight, elasticity, toughness, decay-resistance, and strength. It aims to smartly installed wooden limbs so that it could replace conventional chassis with complex elements such as suspensions, axles and dampers. The construction would even already incorporate all the functions of those elements. The number of technical devices used in a vehicle would be reduced, which would automatically reduce the total weight, energy consumption, the ejected gases, the energy in the production and of course the price).

nThree Electric Vehicle Offers The Comfort of A Car with The Cost of An E-Bike

nThree electric vehicle aims to provide you with affordable, personal vehicle that features the comfort of a car yet with the cost of an e-bike. It sounds pretty ambitious and interesting, doesn’t it? Let’s read what these designers have to say about the project.

Following the recent electric revolution of lightweight vehicles around the world, the nThree is a new design, following the very successful nCycle e-bike concept. With the irreversible process of global economies turning towards renewable energy, the way we see and use the city has already changed and is set to do so dramatically in the next few years.

With our increased awareness and sensitivity towards energy consumption, courtesy among others of the most recent economic crisis, in the last 4-5 years, personal transportation has begun a slow but steady drift away from the model we have come to know in the past century. The 10s and hundreds of new e-bikes and electric cars like the Renault Twizy or Toyota i-Road have shown the way to a more personal and conscious approach. Our new concept builds on the characteristics and refines the strengths of these vehicles to bring electric power even closer to the mass market.

Small electric cars, tricycles and quadricycles all suffer from the same inherent drawback; they are meant to be cheap and affordable but they end up being expensive like real cars because they are BUILT like real cars. The mission on the nThree was to address these conceptual and design shortcomings and design an affordable, single-seat electric vehicle that would offer all (or most) of the comforts of an electric car at the cost of an e-bike.

To achieve the objectives, the nThree electric vehicle was built with a simplistic approach reminiscent on the nCycle. In first place, the vehicle was reduced to the most essential stable geometry of three wheels to reduce cost. Even though the latest small electrics are a great way to move around the urban areas, there is something about these offerings that does not look great at all: Price. Starting from about 7000 Euros and above these 1-2 seaters cost almost as much as a cheap standard car and more than many used ones in good condition.

Hephaestus Motorcycle by Bandit9

Hephaestus is the latest creation by Daryl Villanueva and his band of pirates at Beijing-based garage, Bandit9. They named the bike, Hephaestus, in honor of the Greek God of blacksmiths, craftsmen, sculptors and artisans.

An evolution of the 1988 Honda Bros 400, Bandit9 shed the bike’s original plastic exterior and refitted it with a more modern aesthetic; sporting an armor-like exoskeleton forged from steel. There’s nothing soft about the bike, except for maybe hand stitched black leather seat. The tank, gas cap, cowl, side covers and fender were all handcrafted from stainless steel.

The tank was designed to have a mid-line bevel that carries through to the cowl and the fender. The side-covers with a dotted grill pattern were crafted from sheet metal. The handlebars were replaced with clip-ons designed by Bandit9. The rear lights function both as turn signals and brakes. When you signal to turn, the corresponding light flashes. However, both rear lights flash red when you hit the brakes.

Paraton-e Futuristic Vehicle Blurs The Line Between a Car and a Motorcycle

Paraton-e futuristic concept vehicle aims to amalgamate sustainable thinking with new material technologies to produce a vehicle that effectively fills the gap between car and motorcycle. Issues surrounding the sustainability of recurring urban commutes and increasing traffic congestion have been addressed. As such, this vehicle was conceived to be an ecologically sensitive solution that simultaneously responds to the high comfort demands of a downsizing car owner demographic. Reinforced shape memory polymers enable a flexible footprint and cabin space to actively transform the vehicle whilst in motion.

The user can choose between a configuration that leans and negotiates traffic like a motorcycle, or features a reclined seating position and broad footprint to deliver a stable and assisted driving experience suitable for higher speeds. The variable width of the vehicle also allows for parking in public spaces including footpaths

ARAC ZXS Motorcycle Concept by Marko Petrovic

The ARAC ZXS motorcycle is quite unlike any other road-going motorcycle, combining new body design, with ultra light aluminum chassis and powerful and massive fuel-injected v-twin motor. All combined gives a whole new sight – a machine distinctive by its look and performances.

What also makes it so distinct is the package –that is comparing with others in class of so called “street fighters”, quite smaller and lighter even though it carries the biggest motor.

KruzoR Motorcycle by Chris Stiles

KruzoR Motorcycle is a high powered cruiser, designed for highway sportsbike mayhem on a hybrid of race bike and cruiser. The positioning of the handlebars, footrests and seating position allow the user to be in a position similar to that if you are on a sportsbike, however the arms will be more outstretched. Positioning the seat much lower and at a friendly angle to the tank will allow the rider to rest against the back of the tank.

With hubless wheels and minimal side profile, the KruzoR Motorcycle will handle highway driving crosswinds better than any predecessors before it. The hubless wheels work by fixing the rotating parts of the wheel (bearings etc) onto the outer side of a non-rotating inner ring that attaches to the motorcycle’s swingarm or forks. The footrests are positioned at angle that allow the foot to be rested flat on a surface, differing from the common pegs used extensively on bikes built currently and in the past.
