Electric Motorcycle Design
by Matthew Law
Instead of designing a conventional exotic sport bike with an electric battery replacement, I chose to do a retro-futuristic, steam-punk style motorbike. How would an electric motorcycle look like in 1940s, given they had the manufacturing technology of today? Or - how would a retro motorbike look like in year 2020?

The "hunchness" of the bike was influenced from current street fighters, while the linear elements were inspired from the cafe racers and retro motorcycles. The block from the side of the bike is the compartment for the battery storage, and right underneath is a cylindrical container which holds a high-power motor. As the motorcycle rides to high speeds, the ribs lit up - emitting bright light.

The scale model measures roughly 21" long.
