We don’t dismiss the possibility that future motorcycles could hover, but for practicality’s sake, bikes of the future could look something more like the one in Tron – the reboot version, that is, or it could be look something like this, the Vultran Type 3 Concept Electric Motorcycle dreamed up by Orlando, Florida-based creative mind Lee Rosario. One feature, if you could call it a feature, that draws us to the Vultran Type 3 is how ridiculously long it is and also the fact that being an obvious motorcycle of the future, it still has graphics of flame decorating it. Ok, the latter is a joke.
Nothing says that people of the future can’t put flame graphics on their vehicle. They totally can. Though we still think it is very, you know, ‘today’ but the LED accent, which seems like a mandatory feature of future transportation, found on the wheels and body takes us back to the future again. Like Tron Cycle, this bike is designed to be driven with your body sticking to the vehicle, superman-style and no, it does not appear to have a high-tech retractable canopy that will encapsulate the rider. It will be cool if it had that. And need we remind you that it is a freaking long electric motorcycle. That said, wouldn’t the length a cause of concern when it comes to cornering? Just saying…
Otherwise, Vultran Type 3 is gorgeous and apart from the length (sorry, I just can’t help it), it looks totally plausible. Unlike some designers, Rosario didn’t stop at visuals; he even went to length to imagine high-tech, future tech that goes into Vultran Type 3 which includes custom fitted A.R. racing suit and helmet, HUD real-time environmental digital helmet display, smooth roll auto balance technology, digital interfacing routed with fiber optic, 5K rear-mounted camera that feeds to the helmet’s display, LED rims and tires (!), and advanced holographic instrument panel – just to mention a few.
So what do you think? Is Lee Rosario’s Vultran Type 3 worthy as a bike of the future? I kind of thing so, except for the length. Wait. I must stop thinking about the length! Sorry, again, I can’t help it.
