mission motors electric motorcycle by yves behar's fuseproject

yves behar from fuse project has sent us images of the mission motors electric motorcycle. it is designed to be the fastest 100% electric motorcycle. fuse project has worked closely with mission motors to create a motorcycle that is a true intersection of sustainability, technology performance and design. ‘riding the wind’ was one of the concept expressions. what is absent from traditional motorcycles, and what is new to create unique design features. what’s different? what’s absent? no gas-tank, no tail pipe. the top portion of the motorcycle is an iconic continuous line that brings together comfort and performance: the rider’s chest is cradled in an convex tank area allowing a lower position, the seat and and tail-light integrated into one lightweight dynamic line. what is new? a battery pack enclosed in a lightweight aluminum structure, covered by honeycombed detailed angular skins, that integrate all mechanical elements: from the flush front headlight, to the aerodynamic leg recessed cuts. designed to express speed and efficiency in it’s overall sharp lines, the mission bike also is highly detailed with special attention to a riders needs, bringing a high level of product design and ergonomics to a new generation of performance transportation.
