Illoto Motorcycle Can Take Up 2 Standing Passengers and A Driver in One Ride

Most motorcycles are designed for 2 people, however, there are many times we can see more people ride one motorbike in the name of “efficient”. It’s really dangerous and it might cause accident. Illoto is a concept motorcycle that takes group motorcycling safer, it can take up to 3 people on 2 wheels. This project features unique structure and incorporates the spirit of Tel Aviv City as major source of inspiration in its minimalist design.

The smooth and flowing lines and the major decision I’ve made to move from a combustion engine to an economically-aware electric engine supports a light and airy feel in the design. The coating- meant for the riders’ comfort rather than the concealment of mechanical parts- seems to be floating through space and air flows freely through, providing the impression that the motorcycle is almost hollow. The emphasis lies at its “heart”- the riders, rather than the machine.

By choosing for an electric motor, I went for a contemporary, economically and environmentally aware solution. Design-wise, the use of an electric motor- frees lot of space within the motorcycle, a fact that the body design accentuates: By placing the minimal “floating” bodywork panels, an almost “hollow” feeling was created.

The stylistic expression of this motorcycle is characterized by a compact form, with the emphasis on the front. Viewed from behind and from the rider?s position, its slim silhouette conveys this motorcycle’s easy mobility, as well as a touch of sensuality and driving pleasure.

BMW iR Concept Motorcycle for Future MotoGP racing

BMW iR concept motorcycle is a design study for future MotoGP racing. It’s an electric motorbike that focuses on mid-race transformation for enhanced performance. During a straightaway stretch of the race course, this bike features a long low profile, but as it approaches a turn, the fork angle lessens and the swing arm/shaft shortens to decrease the rake and raise its ground clearance to create an optimal cornering experience.

The body features clean and simple design with minimal clutter, it focuses on surfacing at a maximum. Since BMW iR has been designed as an electric motorcycle, there’s no need for fuel tank. Replacing the traditional fuel tank, there’s a beautiful subframe designed to support the rider. The seat features unique shape with integrated knee pads, designed as one sturdy structure. Considering the amount of negative space throughout the concept, the designer was able to design an extremely lightweight feel motorcycle without looking flimsy. Equipped with a lightweight plastic housing, the awesome asymmetrical eyes of the bike are surrounded by translucent lenses, creating a unique glow the head light is turned on.

Alpha Motorcycle Concept Design Study for BMW

As a fan of BMW, Mehmet Doruk Erdem has designed a futuristic motorcycle that combines old school style.

BMW brand has been a ‘passion’ for me since my childhood. That is the reason why I have decided to design something ‘personal’ for this brand. The motorcycle of my dreams should aim at speed but should not lose its roots, originating from the past.

This is the main reason why the design contains motives of a few different styles. I would like to share my last motorcycle design with you, which is called ‘BMW ALPHA‘. It has been designed for a unique target: Speed. The front section of ‘ALPHA’ has been designed specifically for minimizing the wind effect on the rider. The most vital aspect of this specific design is in its futuristic characteristic and it has been styled mainly for Salt Lake speed record attempts rather than daily usage. My main purpose while designing ALPHA was combining latest technology with old school style.

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.

AH A MAY Project: Root Motorcycle by Kazuki Kashiwase

Do you want to know what happen when musical instrument designers design a motorcycle? Well, project AH A MAY (Yamaha spelled backwards) has interesting idea by exchanging Yamaha 2 design divisions and give them tasks outside their design fields without any constraints related to commercialization or production. The project goal is for designers to stimulate each other’s imaginations while creating products that embodied their shared image of Yamaha. The result is amazing, such as Yamaha Root Motorcycle.

This concept motorcycle takes the meters on the instrument panel off the rider’s view. The designer wants to make sure that this little change would enable rider to be a part of the passing scenery, enjoy their surroundings instead of focusing on the instrument panel of the motorbike. The form of Root has been designed to flow continuously from the seat to the fuel tank, inspired by a horse motif that aims to give a sense of harmony among people, nature, and the vehicle.
