Hyundai Concept Motorcycle
Its not a name that i would associate really here with biking, but i like the idea and concept of this bike.
Inspired by ‘musculature’, designer Min Seong Kim claims that the whole body is made up of materials that stretch and contract just like the muscles in your body do, thus enabling steering without any kind of assistive apparatus.
When turning a corner, the entire body relaxes so that it can smoothly corner, and when accelerating, it contracts to form a rigid body. It also looks like the windshield doubles as an illuminated instrument panel…
The steering system fascinated me the most – the concept is interesting, but the actual manufacturing and longevity of such a system would be of concern. Lets face it muscles tire, become weaker and at times break. Though the design has a touch of Tron about it i feel its further enough away to not be tagged as a copy of Trons Light Bike.
