Honda Chopper motorcycle
Futuristic Honda motorcycle
Awesome futuristic motorcycle 3d concept by artist Pete Norris.
Inspiration for this came from a number of sources, the clean functional lines of medical machinery, 70’s and 80’s marker drawings and manga.
As a kid my favourite vehicle from any film was the speeder bike from Return of the Jedi, so I guess there maybe some influence from that too.
I wanted to design a bike that was a purpose-built chopper, long front suspension, feet forward seating position and a large footprint.
The downward facing handlebars and central headlight (positioned under a scowling brow) add some attitude.
Power would come from a biofuel engine, but also 2 small electric motors, one built into each wheel hub.
Honda was chosen as the marque as it has a similar aesthetic to their Asimo robot.
What I really want, is a vehicle can look “far-out” and “futuristic”, but actually work today, using current tech.I did take a bit of artistic licence with the glows in the exhausts though!
You can find out more of Pete’s work:
Very original & futuristic
Very good 3d modelling & renderings skills
Looks a lot like Asimo robot (made by Honda)
Clean hybrid engine (biofuel & electric)
Chance it will be build in the next 20 years – very slim
Front looks bit too heavy and bulky
Missing wind deflector & headlights too small
