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.

T 005 Cross Motorcycle Features Boxy Shaped Body

Unusual boxy shaped T 005 Cross Motorcycle has been designed for a graphic designer. It’s a special project designed and built for special friend, someone who always finds a way on how to combine ideas and function in one product. The result is sleek and cool motorcycle design that can be used on the road even in a bad condition but still shows beauty and sleekness that represents owner’s ideas. The design started with creating a new sub frame for 2008 Yamaha Scorpio in order to get a clean look under the seat while maximizing the horizontal grid. The aluminum plate is used to construct the body panel to reduce weight due to thick material plate.

Few parts of the bike got new replacements, the team renewed the gasket and place it on a vapor blasting treatment to create contrast and give value to the bike before the coloring phase begins. The PE 28 Carburator allows this bike to breath fresh air and the custom-made stainless steel exhaust is covered with a black exhaust wrap.

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.

C#3 Motorcycle by Stefan Toth

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.

Hydro Bike : Sporty Hydrogen Powered Bike Design

HYDRO BIKE offers a cheaper way to travel. The design of this bike was meant to save your hard earned money without looking like a cheapskate. Powered by hydrogen cell but added with “unworkable” pair of pedals.

Why the need to have pedals?
As long as it has pedals (self-propelled), it would still legally be considered a bicycle in many countries. There’s no need of a motorcycle license, yearly road tax, summons and anything that cost money for owning a bike.

Arch Motorcycle Company Releases Its First Bike: KRGT-1

Who would have thought Keanu Reeves can build a motorcycle? Apparently he’s a passionate motorcyclist aside from being a great actor. Together with Gard Hollinger, this duo has built Arch Motorcycle Company and just released its first bike: KRGT-1.

Unlike traditional V-twin side-mounted intakes that lay between rider’s leg and disturb ergonomics and balance, the company works together with S&S Cycle to develop Arch Down Draft Induction System. It can be positioned between billet aluminum fuel cells, making this motorcycle sleek, comfortable, and agile. The intake dams have been designed and shaped in a way that collect and deliver air to the torquey 124-inch more efficient while S&S V-twin keeping it fully aspirated. Due to multi-function design, the dams can also support and frame KRGT-1’s billet aluminum headlight housing.

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.
