RV2 is a concept motorcycle built around the idea of lack a traditional chassis, a Monocoque structure. The top part of the bike is a carbon fiber shell that holds the gas tank and creates the structure for the seat. The shell form is used as the bike’s chassis and the engine is mounted to it, while the suspensions are mounted to the engine. The lack of chassis creates an extremely narrow motorcycle that is as wide as it’s engine, and the V2 engine is very narrow by definition. This components arrangement and carbon fiber chassis enable a drastic weight reduce, 10-15% lighter than similar class competitors. Basically the styling of the bike creates its own mechanical solutions and the main components hold a double functionality. The bike’s cover has been designed to give the illusion as if they are floating around the top form and the engine.
