Will you be riding this in 50 years?
Inevitably the next will be a riderless motorcycle. The Cyclotron, a concept produced by designers from Canada and India, is just that.
Charles Bombardier and Ashish Thulkar wanted to “imagine, design, and develop a new breed of urban vehicle. Something that will minimize the human footprint, that can operate year round in any weather, and run on electricity instead of gasoline.”
Gyroscopes like those used in Lit Motors’ C-1 would maintain the bike’s stability. It would employ butterfly doors and even hold two passengers in opposing seats (no pillions here).
They also say the Cyclotron would recharge wirelessly, allowing you to buy and sell electricity from the vehicles around you. Far-fetched? Perhaps. Maybe one day traffic jams could be your next business opportunity.
Apparently the Cyclotron is inspired by the Light Cycle from Tron. Perhaps it also pays a passing resemblance to these unforgettable beauties…
Do you think this is one for your Christmas list or best left to the dreams of the designers? Tell us on our Facebook page.
