Aggressive Motorcycle Concepts

The BMW Titan Concept is Aerodynamic and Fiercely Geometrical

— July 20, 2016 — Autos
Though only a concept, the BMW Titan can turn heads even in composite drawings. The aggressively canted high-speed motorcycle design, if adapted into a physical vehicle based on designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem's drawings, has the potential to touch the landspeed record for motorcycles: an astonishing 376 miles per hour.

The aerodynamics of the design were inspired by a shark's hydrodynamics, with a completely airtight front nose that tapers to expose air intake "gills" along the side of the vehicle. Inside the enclosed cockpit, the instrument cluster is custom-made for expert riders, and includes advanced metrics like suspension status, cooling system operation and area-specific temperatures. Finally, the turbo-powered engine connects to the rear tire via an enclosed swingarm. According to Erdem, this provides "a cleaner look and enhance[d] aerodynamics."

The BMW Titan concept shows an independent designer's willingness to approach established brands with radical ideas.
Trend Themes
1. Aerodynamic Motorcycle Designs - Designing motorcycles to be more aerodynamic inspired by non-traditional sources such as shark hydrodynamics could lead to speed improvements and potential new speed records.
2. Custom Instrument Clusters for Motorcycles - Developing customized technical metrics like suspension status, cooling systems, and area-specific temperatures could improve the riding experience for expert riders.
3. Enclosed Swingarm Designs for Motorcycles - Adopting enclosed swingarm designs to connect the engine to the rear tire can improve a motorcycle's aerodynamics, resulting in a cleaner look and potentially better performance.
Industry Implications
1. Motorcycle Manufacturing - Manufacturers can explore non-traditional sources such as shark hydrodynamics to improve their motorcycle designs for better performance.
2. Custom Motorcycle Accessories Manufacturing - Custom instrument clusters tailored to expert riders could be developed as an addon for motorcycle manufacturers and enthusiasts alike.
3. Automotive Engineering Services - Engineering services could pitch the idea of enclosed swingarm designs to motorcycle manufacturers to improve aerodynamics and performance of the motorcycles.
