The world is altering for the pits, but atleast the people from the biking world can swank of a contrary notion. The concepts, which have evolved over the past few years, are definitely heart warming and since we people have the tendency to forget, let us just rev up and see the stunning concepts that have made an impact and left a lasting impression.
10. The SAGA
Designer: Paul Yang and Larry Nagel
Status : Project Motorcycle
Credibility: It was a first time project, which only took seven months for completion
Paul Yang wasn’t a designer by profession and he merely fluked it to join hands
with the famous Larry Nagel but the amateur status of Paul did not prove to be a
hindrance by any means. Indeed, a first time project bike conventionally takes 18
to 24 months for completion and these two managed to produce a moving guzzler mere seven months which talks highly about the efficiency and dedication of this Duo.
9. Chrysler Tomahawk
Designer: Daimler Chrysler
Status: Production ready
Engine: V 10
Credibility: A sculpture that can be ridde
Chrysler Tomahawk for me is the ‘Big Daddy’ of all motorcycles. You ask me a reason and I have one many; for a V10 engine, which makes it capable of producing 500 horses powers it, is the foremost of them all. With a capacity of 8.3 liters and a ten-cylinder engine, it can literally fly at 400 mph.
Hats off to Daimler Chrysler for making this bike reach the production floor !
8. Peraves Monotracer
Designer: Swiss Manufacturer Peraves
Status : Being limitedly produced (100 units each year) Engine: BMW 1200 CC, 130 hp
Credibility: Combines the aptitude of a car and a bike
The Peraves Monotracer combines the features of a sports bike and a sports car and if any of you doubt it, just as a substantiation, it took Peraves some 90
prototypes and 12 million kilometers to be sure that they live up to the rumored
repute . When the driver dives into a corner a retractable stabilizer wheel is
positioned in less than a half a second, enabling the bike to lean up to 52 degrees
more, than most sport bikes in their lifetime.
7. BMW IMME 1200
Designer : Nicolas Bubar and Yves Dufeutrelle from ISD
Engine : A 150 hp engine based on the BMW 1200 Boxer
Credibility: A startling concept evolved by two rookie designers
Nicolas Bubar (22) and Yves Dufeutrelle (24) are design students at the
international school of design and they thought that a sports bike based on the BMW 1200 boxer would be good idea. Tell you what folks; it definitely was a good idea for the IMME 1200 would now be presented at the next Munich Motorcycle Show at BMW stands.
