Vintage designs and electric motorcycles have both seen meteoric rises in popularity recently, which probably explains the design of Alex Kish's electric motorcycle concept. Kish is a design student who has created an electric motorcycle concept that is certain to appeal to both bikers and eco activists.

The bike is set to weigh in at a light 430 pounds and will be powered by a 12-kilowatt DC motor. Other design quirks include a charging cable where the gas cap should be and airless tires. The overall design of the bike is reminiscent of the Triumphs of old and the Ducatis of right now, which should help sway bikers reluctant to let go of their polluting rides. Of course, the key here is speed, but if Alex Kish's design go as fast as it looks, I would say we are in business.
