UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The main concept is that the driver’s body is protected in a big capsule made of metal, carbon-fiber and fiber glass. It can be considered the helmet of the body. In case of collision this capsule is disconnected from its base and at the same time airbags open in its interior. This hybrid has been designed to be a safe vehicle and at the same time to offer all the advantages of a motorcycle (size, flexibility, low energy consumption and easy parking). It also has influences from racing cars, motorcycles, and aeronautics design.
