Suzuki Biplane Concept




The Suzuki Biplane motorcycle that was on display at the Tokyo Auto Show was inspired design-wise by the classic Wright Brothers biplane, but I personally think it looks more like that red mean machine that Akira rode in the groundbreaking anime by Katsuhiro Otomo. Will there be secret wings hidden inside this beast? Probably not, but chances are you'll be able to fly in this thing and put just about any other vehicle on the road to shame with your speed.

Feel the joy of riding motorcycle! Look at this motorcycle! This concept model "The Biplane" communicates the joy of two-wheel mobility through a design that was uniquely inspired by the feeling of flying or piloting an aeroplane, which gives motorcyclists a similarity feeling while riding bikes. Despite being a modern machine, it gives a great feeling of openness-thanks to a shape that has a biplane - no canopy - motif, which was always giving softer, human-friendly and warm feeling to us. It's powered by a V4 engine.
