Whether it's boats, cars, bikes or motorcycles, there's a huge shift towards minimalist modes of transportation. Examples include bikes that fold up, sedans with smooth monochromatic exteriors and boats that look like they're barely there. Just because these minimalist modes of transportation have a simplified design doesn't mean they lack in the performance department. From sleek speed trains to fold-up electrobikes, welcome to the future.

Implications - Minimalism continues to grow in popularity as many people have tired from over-the-top, opulent designs. Businesses that can incorporate minimalist elements of opulence -- like these sleek modes of transportation -- can be seen as refreshing in comparison to loud designs that age fairly quickly.
