Till now, only SUVs were known for their absolute all terrain capabilities with their all wheel drive capabilities also known as 4x4 drive. Imagine a motorbike which can run with both the wheels connected to the engine and guided with a hydraulic steering which also commands on both the rims.

It sounds really strange that how a motorbike can be assembled with such abilities. However, the bike is in prototype stage and it also doesn’t look good, but the engineering inside the core block is really commendable if it turns the conventional concepts on a new road.

An Australian bike maker has crafted this futuristic vehicle which is based in Springvale, Victoria. The Drysdale Motorcycle Company has a record of making ultra modern V8 engines. The firm owner who stressed the most over the project, named Ian Drysdale has tried to add hydraulics to the bike and eventually, he ended up fitting all those things which mentioned above.

The bent-axis 9-piston radial pump is embedded into the bike which stretches the transmission from the 2 stroke 250cc gas engine. The hydraulic system of the pump generates 4,500psi worth force to activate the 2x2x2 Dryvtech. The fluid reaches the motors of both the wheels through the steel pipelines. The steering gets its direction through the other two hydraulic lines placed over the job. The kill the speed, the conventional brakes have been replaced by the regenerative brake alike hydraulic functions.

The major component across each part of this 2x2x2 motorbike is the hydraulic system which has been proved to be a wise choice for the desired purpose. The pressurized fluids will be guiding the motors of both the wheels. Concerning the steering, unconventionally the front wheel is not connected to the handle bar. Rather, the wheels on either end are mutually connected for proper function. The rear wheel’s degree of turn is dependent upon the front one’s status.
The prototype of the bike seems really to be a masterpiece and it can stretch a new generation of two wheelers for the future. It is available for bid on eBay’s Australian website against a starting bid of AU $10,000 or US $8,277.50. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GIZMAG | AUTOEVOLUTION | SAGMART]
