Honda Chopper

I'm shocked at this Honda motorcycle concept. Unlike any motorcycle concept bike i've seen. It's like something you would expect to see in Star Wars or movies like iRobot. As nice as the concept is, it's far from being a production model but maybe in a decade from now we will see bikes with this type of styling and technology.

Do you remember the Pininfarina Coupe Concept we presented just a few days ago? Its designer, Peter Norris, has developed yet another amazing concept, but this time, it’s a motorcycle and not a car. His project is called the Honda Chopper and took its inspiration from a number of sources. It features clean functional lines of medical machinery, 70’s and 80’s marker drawings and design (such as Big Trak), and a bit of manga thrown in.

The new concept is a purpose-built chopper featuring a long front suspension, feet forward seating position, and a large footprint. Powering this chopper - like most of the other concepts revealed recently - are two small electric motors, one built into each wheel hub helping lower the center of gravity, improve efficiency, and lower emissions.

The bottom line is that this is a pretty impressive concept and since the inspiration behind the design is Star Wars, we expect many people to be able to appreciate its look.
