Bird of Prey by L-X Bird of Prey by L-X
It's small, it's lightweight, and it's coming to a showroom near you.

Powered by a Honda RC51 V-twin 999cc engine, with a redline of 10,000rpm, 120RWhp and a theoretical top speed of 233 kilometers per hour. Wearing three 19inch lightweight alloy wheels equiped with twin rear and front disc brakes, you wont have any problems stopping in a hurry.

Fiberglass outer shell and alloy chassis give you the aerodynamics needed to acheive the level of performance you expect from a roadbike, with the comfort of a car. The interior is a combination of moulded plastic and leather trim, with digital dials giving you the vital information about your vehicle.

So pick up your phone today, and call 555-it's not a real number.

Callers within the next five minutes will receive a complimentary set of steak knives. So what are you waiting for?

very interesting concept!

What program did you design this in?

I wish I could render my concept car sketches into real 3D images....

Hmm..

Wow, ID major! I'm in my last year of a degree of ID.

Thanks heaps for the nice comment, I'll be off to check out your stuff now. :)

Great name by the way, does this mean your philosophy is form following function or vise versa? :)

My pleasure! Unfortunately I don't have any real ID-related work uploaded right now, as I've focussed mainly on my graphic design work. I intend to start submitting ID pieces in the future though, likely in the fall once I've returned from Europe. Mostly general product and furniture, as I never really excelled at automotive design.

As for the name, thanks. It's been my "handle" for several years, in various circles. Now whether my philosophy is one or the other... Most of my work implies function following form, but I'll leave it a mystery. Partly why I came up with the handle, it can swing both ways. ;)

I'll look forward to the ID submissions then :) We're not taught automotive design where I study, I've taught myself. My first attempt didnt go too well, though I'm still pleased with it. [link] I thought the idea behind the doors was origional, but turns out a few concept cars in the 50's had the same idea. :(

I'll be submitting a furniture design in a few days, to sum it up it's three very large, bright red, lego blocks, that let you build your own furniture. Very fun, the last of the three is being upholstered this afternoon, the first two have been done.

I have to give you even more credit for being self-taught then. Your work definitely seems polished enough to have been taught.

To be honest, it's damn near impossible to come up with an idea that someone hasn't thought of at some point in the past, particularly in industrial design. I find the real trick is to look at a good concept and see how you can innovate on it, instead of wracking you brain trying to think of something completely original.

As for the furniture, I look forward to seeing the submissions! :)

I made everything in this image using Cinema4D - A 3D program. So it's all made from scratch.

i think front wheel brakes are a bad idea, if you stop too fast, it will flip you...

but then, again, the fiberglass shell might save you.

ANd btw, is there a air bag?

and where does the engine go?

and teh seat is a tad bit too thin to be comfartable...

and does it come with a bicycle-attachement rack option? like on top?

and one last thing, the exaust pipe is too high, it will put carbon monoxide into the face of the harley behind you...


otherwise, great job...

Motorbikes have front brakes, but are rarely used for the same reason. This has twin rear brakes aswell, which would get the most use.

Engine goes above the rear wheel, infront of the exhaust. It means it has a high centre of gravity, but the majority of the vehicles weight is in the wheels and the driver, so this doesnt matter.

Yep, you can either attach your mountain bike to the roof or just run it over, because if you've got one of these you dont need a bike. :)

Cheers

Rear, it would need a gearbox at the pivot point of the swingarm.
