Lane Splitter : Futuristic Car that Splits Into Motorcycles

Mark Wilson of Fast Company has a cool (or crazy) idea about a futuristic car with ability to split into 2 motorcycles. Argodesign has done a great job in visualizing this futuristic idea into something tangible and beautiful. Called as Lane Splitter, this futuristic vehicle is an all-electric vehicle that splits into 2 closed-top motorcycles when you need it to be. As a car, it might not look really cool, but when it transforms into 2 personal urban motorbike, it looks kinda stylish.

This project was lead by Chipp Walters, he had designed several projects for NASA in the 80’s and 90’s, as you can see here, he has turned something from idea and sketches into something realistic enough that people might buy it. This innovative car embraces asymmetry where the motorcycles could be flat on the inside but curved on the outside. It features safe locking mechanisms that would attach the vehicles near the bottom of the frame. The equipped auto parking system just like some smart cars have today can guide these motorcycles to park while docking together.

BMW 1150GEth Tesla Motion : Futuristic Concept e-Bike Inspired by A Video Game

Submitted by Djordje Kovacevic, BMW 1150GEth Electric Motorcycle is a concept study, aiming to create futuristic zero-emission motorbike. You can read his explanations below.

The GEth’s unique look is something that clearly sorts it to a new kind of motorcycles. Beside it being electrical a new limb-suspension and steering system makes it aiming towards innovations. You can tell from this design that it is an electric machine. Design of the GEth is obviously more on the classical lines side, avoiding most of the popular aggressive fluid style shapes. With retro looking cockpit, similar to those on WW2 airplanes that integrate a high-end hardware, it is trying to make a new direction in design of futuristic motorcycles.

The basic idea of the body came from the “Mass Effect” video game’s creatures, those creates are called Geths, aliens that are artificial life, machines. The styling of the GEth concept is designed to highlight this vehicle’s autonomy and to encourage the concept of self-driven assistance of the vehicles in the future. Towards the future philosophy GEth’s heart follows the electric path. Its ultra-compact 12.8kWh battery has a range of 200km and can be recharged to 80% capacity in 20 minutes. Ultra-rigid exoskeleton that integrates most of the components is made from strong light composite materials.

2015 Chak Motors Molot : A Custom Futuristic Superbike From Modified Honda CBR 1000RR ABS

We just got a design submission from Igor Chak, this time, he designed a futuristic superbike, 2015 Chak Motors Molot. When it comes to choosing a motorcycle, there is not much choice on the market today, the safest is usually the biggest, most of the bikes that have any safety features are the touring bikes but when it comes to super sport you don’t really have much to compare.

Igor Chak offers a safer and smarter concept motorcycle. ABS has been around since the 70’s but it’s just recently been appearing on motorcycles. This project incorporates advanced technologies that don’t cost a fortune to make this motor bike lighter, stronger, and safer. The word Molot itself is a Russian word that means a sledge or a mallet type hammer, it perfectly describes aggressive, tough, and technologically advanced 1000cc superbike.

Futuristic Dodge Tomahawk Motorcycle Concept

The Tomahawk is a Viper V-10 based motorcycle, a 500 horsepower engine with four wheels beneath it. The engine breathes through twin throttle bodies mounted right up front. The Tomahawk concept is an awesome-sounding machine. Clouds of blue smoke vied for attention with the throaty rumble of the mighty V-10, and hitting the gas visibly opened the twin throttle body blades up front where the headlight would normally be. Though deeper and more rumbling than most motorcycles, it did not seem to be louder overall – just deeper and less shrill.

The Dodge Tomahawk can reach 60 miles an hour in about 2.5 seconds, and has a theoretical top speed of nearly 400 mph. Each pair of wheels is separated by a few inches and each wheel has an independent suspension. Bernhard said four wheels were necessary to handle the power from the engine.

e-Raw Electric Bike Features Elastic Wooden Seat with Steel Frame

e-Raw Electric Bike features gorgeous floating wood laminated seat, bringing harmony between mechanics and electronics. Instead of dealing with complex combustion engine, this bike has been designed with ridiculously simple and compact motor, including flexible shaped battery package. More people now ride bicycle and they slowly have influenced city infrastructures, Martin Hulin saw this as an opportunity to develop a modern, fully electric bike that features raw materials such as metal and wood. Unlike gasoline powered motorcycle, no one actually sets design standard in electric motorcycle, therefore, everyone has the freedom to experiment with different kinds of design ideas, even futuristic, something that you might not be able to do when dealing with conventional motorcycles.
