Dubbed the Polestar C60 Concept Motorcycle, this electric bike concept by Vinay Raj Somashekar has the graphene battery at its core, one of the most versatile and clean energy storage medium. The bike will charge in no time, virtually in a couple of minutes and mileage would be way ahead of what we are used to seeing in the current era. The side of the bike is dominated by the hexagonal shape, known to be one of the most robust shapes, lending the ride a mechanically strong core while being visually attractive. The same hexagonal shape can be seen at the front where the drone magnetically clasps on to the bike when not taking flight. For a smoother journey, there is the dynamic electromagnetic suspension system that works in tandem with Odin’s Eye for “automatic real-time progressive preload adjustment based on road and weather conditions.”
The designer envisions this e-bike for the year 2040 where autonomous technologies are so advanced that they’ll ensure you are safe at all times – but then you got to break the shackles every now and then. There’s a ‘Zen Mode’ to let go of all the driving assists and safety features for pure joy or riding, and when you want to focus on improving your driving, it’s time to switch to the ‘Track Mode’ which comes with brake and acceleration assists to guide you to take the apexes perfectly.
