Mangusta, a fierce motorcycle that reflects the raging bull's identity

So far, the public knows that Lamborghini-logoed motorbikes are still only a concept on the paper. Although in fact the raging bull-logoed manufacturer ever once made a sports motorbike named Lamborghini Design 90 even if in the form of a prototype. The bike is known was the result of collaboration the Sant'Agata Bolognese-based manufacturer with a French motorcycle racing specialists of Boxer Bike (now named Boxer Design) and only 6 units ever made in 1989.

Recently there's a designer named Yasid Design, who is known not only as a vehicle designer but as an artist. He has many quite interesting virtual works that are born from his magic hand scratches and brilliant thoughts.

This time, he brought out a two-wheeled vehicle design bearing the raging bull badge and is gave the name Lamborghini Mangusta (an Italian word for 'mongoose'). Even though it had a name that had nothing to do with the bull as usual, but the design he made managed to embody the raging bull spirit. Because the mongoose is also a quite aggressive species.

According to the designer, this motorcycle was built on the basis of the Ducati Diavel. And the Diavel selection is said to be the perfect choice in creating a wild machine worthy of wearing the Lambo badge. Then the Mangusta aesthetic truly reflects the language of the Italian supercar brand, as it combines metal and carbon fiber to create a strong yet lightweight ride.

And the only thing that doesn't have a sharp curve is the seat. The reason is quite clear. As many would expect, this model gets an over-the-top style with angular bodywork with sharp edges. And some details of the body still embody its typical raging bull figures. Almost all of the body panels appear to be made of carbon fiber.

Furthermore, the Y-shaped LED headlights and taillight strips look sleek, seemingly inspired by the Lamborghini Vision Gran Turismo Concept revealed last year. The tank and seat are made to appear together, with a little sculpting at the bottom. Then, in the front is left open with no fender. Instead, there's the covers that adopting sharp corners to wrap the front suspensions.

Although taking the base from Diavel, the designer created a trellis frame which is quite elegant. Besides, the contrasting color with the carbon fiber clad cover makes it look more charming, also its carbon fiber panel hides most of the original motorcycle design elements.

Uniquely the belt drive device is still visible from the trellis frame to the one-sided swing arm. Then the bottom of this motorcycle looks quite attractive, where the front of the engine is closed neatly. Besides, the frame cover is made to extend to cover the single arm with a curved body sharply combined with a firm line like an Italian supercar.

While the other side covers the two-hole exhaust which is located right under the rider's seat. Designer is expanding the wheelbase to create a more elegant and elongated motor, but he hasn't said anything about the bike's technical specifications. Although there is no detailed information regarding the engine specs, it looks like it is based on the XDiavel S fierce engine.
It could be said that this model still relies on a conventional engine instead of an electric powertrain. Of the images of the Lamborghini Mangusta concept is seen wrapped in Reventon silver and Aventador yellow, meanwhile, Ducati's distinctive red color has been removed.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | YASID DESIGN | CARSCOOPS | RIDE APART ]
