Black Shadow H-E Concept Motorcycle With Hydrogen-Electric System

Black Shadow H-E Concept Motorcycle was born out of the idea of combining classic motorcycle design with modern technology. The designer is an avid vintage motorcycle enthusiast, you probably can see that some vintage characteristics are brought into the design. The drawing process started during the first quarter of 2013, then the designer started to share his ideas and thoughts with colleagues to get criticisms and different opinions that enable this project to evolve into perfection.

This concept motorbike is incorporated with a hybrid engine to make it environmentally friendly. Remember the good ol’ days when leather jacket motor riders racing dangerously from café to café to prove themselves? Well, some inspiration of this project came from that simple rugged design of those motorbikes. The main goal here is to design and develop eco-friendly modern motorcycle with vintage style.

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.

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.

Sleek And Contemporary Indoor Private Bar From Porsche Design And Johnnie Walker

Porsche Design Studio and Johnnie Walker with their exclusive Blue Label scotch collection teamed together and have brought this futuristic and stylish indoor private bar that was only within reach of the creepy sci-fi movie characters, and in case of real humans, James Bond previously. Now, anyone can have the same elegance and give the interior a dramatic feel with this unique indoor bar.

The supremacy of the indoor private bar is featured with combination of a couple of items together. The first one is the Chiller, a brushed aluminum and blue leather combined six and half foot tall case which can perfectly house three bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue Label scotch bottles. The sleek and stylish sliding up opening mechanism through electronic sensors of the Chiller is the most attractive part that can easily give you the exact feeling from which I have written the first paragraph of the article.

Lea-Francis Cafe Racer Design Is Inspired by Lea-Francis 1914 V-Twin Model

Inspired by Lea-Francis 1914 V-Twin model, John Bridge has come up with Lea-Francis Cafe Racer. Lea-Francis was a motorcycle manufacturer which closed down in 1924, but it didn’t stop Bridge from making that classic motorcycle design as his inspiration. The 1914 V-Twin model has bulky front end, drifting to the rear via the angular fuel tank, small single seat to finally the carry cases famously placed on both sides of the rear wheels.

Lea-Francis Cafe Racer motorcycle has brought those key elements to its design. Your eyes will be drawn to the the muscular front end, exposing the brushed aluminum front suspension and steering components. The fuel tank of the 1914 has been exaggerated and houses the hydrogen powertrain, lithium-ion batteries and motor within one single unit. This enables the design to be clean and elegant; directly corresponding to the original inspiration.
