Shavit Motorcycle Concept Instantly Goes from Crotch Rocket to Cruiser

The Shavit motorcycle concept is an electric super-bike designed to seamlessly convert into an everyday cruiser. The Shavit fills the wide gap between the high-powered street bikes that easily top out at over 100 mph and the larger and slower cruiser and touring bikes that are designed for comfortable and long rides.

The Shavit has a fierce look that suggests it could do zero to 60 in the blink of an eye. That look can be flipped on its head with the touch of a button, as the seat of the bike goes from an upraised and forward position to a centered and level one. This small change in seat position lets riders do it all, allowing them to tear up the city streets one minute while cruising down them in peace and quiet the next. The fact that the bike is electric powered means that rides will unfortunately be shorter, but a whole lot cleaner and greener.
