nUCLEUS: Zero Emissions, Ultra Fast

NonObject believes that a new breed of alternative fuel vehicles deserves a new level of experience. They pondered, "Why do motorcycles mimic each other's DNA or mirror ferocious animals from the wild?" They wanted a unique motorcycle design that is off the beaten path.

Their concept, currently in development, is the “nUCLEUS," a motorcycle built on the antagonistic principle of “square against air”. It is a Zero Impact Speed machine that features Zero Emission, Ultra Light materials, and Integrated Behavior System.

Despite its unusual appearance and apparent opposition to aerodynamic design, NonObject claim that nUCLEUS will be nimble and fast.

"The square side-view hides the fact that these pieces of metal are simply blades from the front â€" fierce blades that cut through air," the company sais. "nUCLEUS also boasts a thin comfortable saddle and horse-like behavior system - a new way to connect with your vehicle: it gets up on its hind legs (in action) and rests down squarely (while locked, at rest)."
