The Aprilia Magnet. Really Hot. Hybrid.

with one comment

This concept vehicle was designed by a Finnish student as part of his thesis.  It runs on a conventional 550cc engine powering the rear wheels, and two electric motors driving the front wheels.

It looks like an F1 car and leans into the turns.  Feet forward is awesome..

Mark van der Kwaak, an Aussie living in the Netherlands, has some rather amazing bikes he has designed in ProE Wildfire.  What is really impressive is that some of his work has made the migration from solely digital content to real life fire breathing chunks of metal.

This bike is a cafe racer with a twin cam HD engine, tele-lever front suspension and a garrett turbo charger.  I want.
