The target customer for i-TRIL is actually a new one, a sophisticated, single, 30 to 50 year old active female, maybe with two children. This concept vehicle is perfect for her who lives in SMESTO or Small to Medium Sized Town. It is based on European Union studies where in the future, the inhabitants in SMESTOs around Europe would increase significantly, they would take children to school, visit restaurant, and socialize. Small, agile, and urban friendly transportation is going to be in high demand.

The new Toyota i-TRIL concept understands that its target customers are active mothers who are often torn between “Me Time” and spending time with their children. This concept car embraces and merges that conflict with 3 functions: Active Lean technology, “Relaxed Engagement”, and unique One-plus-Two seating layout of the 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.

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.

You can find further information about C#3 from this site:

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.
