Suzuki's Hydrogen powered motorcycle

~ECO Friendly~ Given the depletion of fossil fuels, making the man trying to find fuel alternatives. No exception to the world automotive industry also vying to make automotive products that use alternative fuels. When the use of pure electric energy or hybrid (combined with gasoline or diesel engines) an option taken by most automotive industry for their vehicles. Apparently there is another alternative fuels that can be combined with electric power to drive the motor vehicle, namely hydrogen.
The hydrogen-fueled Suzuki Crosscage hybrid motorcycle concept has debuted at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. (Picture from: Bikenet)
So on this occasion we will discuss hydrogen powered hybrid vehicle. This Hydrogen-powered hybrid motorcycle is made ​​by Suzuki and given named Suzuki Crosscage Hybrid Motorcycle concept. To make this concept motorcycle, Suzuki cooperating with the British company, Intelligent Energy, which make this a great collaboration since Intelligent Enegy has its own hydrogen generation plants.

Inteligent Energy has a portfolio that includes a range of world-class fuel cell, fuel processing, desulphurization and hydrogen generation technologies. The company's existing home hydrogen generation system means you'll be able to make your own hydrogen at home. This hybrid motorcycle first appeared on the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show along with its sibling called Suzuki Biplane Concept.

The Suzuki Crosscage Hybrid Motorcycle concept is a fuel-cell motorcycle in which a simple, compact, lightweight air-cooled fuel-cell system and a high-performance secondary battery are brought together in a way that realizes optimal power control.

A fuel-cell unit from the British specialist company such as the Intelligent Energy that delivers quick activation with low fuel consumption, and a lithium-ion battery combines safety with a low environmental burden.

The simplicity, compactness, and lightness of these technologies not only make the crosscage environment-friendly; they also helped enable sporty styling befitting the Suzuki name.

Intelligent Energy as the makers of the ENV bike, (say "en-vee") a fuel-cell and electric hybrid bike. The Crosscage concept uses Intelligent Energy’s thin-membrane-construction fuel cells and a lithium-ion battery (unlike the ENV, which uses lead-acid batteries), to "combine safety with a low environmental burden," according to the Suzuki press release.

The ENV was powered by a 6kW 48 volt motor and with energy supplied from Intelligent Energy's 1 kW hydrogen fuel cell, was capable of 50 mph (80 kph) and by the time it reached market, was forecast to be able to reach most speed limits and exceed its then range of 100 miles (160 kilometers).

The Crosscage, for all its devilish good looks, cannot be expected to perform any better than speed limits, and having no extra performance up your sleeve

Not much information is circulating about this bike, but this bike is obviously already using compressed hydrogen fuel is equivalent to 125cc petrol engine and using an automatic transmission. This motorcycle using Michellin tires with 17-inches rims. The indicator panel have been using a combination of the analog and digital.

Despite the eco-friendly copy, the bike looks performance-oriented, and the chassis is as unique as the drive system. The Crosscage's design uses large-diameter tubing and a unique center brace on each side. The front and rear wheels use single-sided swingarms, and overall there is an emphasis on light weight, which should equate to good handling, not to mention longer battery life.

Hydrogen as a cheap, readily available fuel source is many years away, so don’t look for a bike like this in showrooms soon. But as a message that Suzuki can design environmentally conscious vehicles that are still sporty and fun to ride, the Crosscage is loud and clear.

Future Motorcycle Inspired with Biplane Sensation

~Unique ONE~ From the many products that have been produced by Suzuki Motor Corporation that sold in the global motorcycle market, almost all of them always departed from concepts that are created and developed by their creative motorcycle designers. Indeed, this concept motorcycle design has been launched long time ago by those famous Japanese manufacturers.

But in our opinion, this concept motorcycle design was carrying fully futuristic design that inspired by the historical biplane also featuring with commonly-used advanced technology today, so making them feasible to re-discussed here.
Front right side view of Suzuki Biplane concept. (Picture from: EnoAnderson)
The Suzuki Biplane was revealed at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show along with its hydrogen-powered sibling Suzuki Crosscage comcept. It is a concept motorbike inspired by Biplanes. Rather an unusual source of inspiration, the design uses colors similar to the canvas often found on older aircraft, and the lack of any wind protection would also leave the rider exposed to the elements - similar to the pilot of an open-top aircraft.

This futuristic Suzuki Biplane concept powered by a semi-exposed 1,000 cc, V4, 4-stroke, liquid cooled, DOHC engine, and driving through a CVT transmission. This bike is inspired by the classic Wright Brothers biplane. It is a sleek looking model with 2,166 mm length, 645 mm width, 906 mm height.

The Suzuki Biplane concept uses a girder-type front end, similar to that found on the Confederate Wraith, for steering and front suspension. The partly covered rear wheel and flush seat-to-tank design is similar to those found on the 1986 Suzuki Nuda concept bike.

The heads of the cylinders and exhaust system remind the elements of airplane’s design. The link-type rear suspension is located below the futuristic seat, the instrument panels put on the the surface of the tank. The bike stops with the help of rim mounted disk brakes on the front and the rear wheels.
This is just a concept bike and there are no plans for commercialization as of yet. No doubt Suzuki Biplane creates the new image of future motorcycle and conquers the minds and imagination of the motorcycle enthusiasts.

Here's the South African's R9T-based custom motorbike named Storm

~Unique ONE~ Of the many custom models of the BMW R nineT (R9T) in the world, of course you are still remembered to the figure of a custom motorcycle made by Zillers Garage that we have discussed before. Now there is another one that in our opinion is very interesting, the bike was built by a creative South African builder named Wayne Buys. Through his work, it can be said that he gives a new perspective in the custom world of this 1,170 cc boxer engined motorcycle made by the Bavarian motorcycle manufacturer.
The unique-shaped custom motorcycle named Storm by Wayne Buys of FabMan Creations based on the BMW R nineT, and said took the inspiration from the aerodynamic shape of the WW2 era fighter planes. (Picture from: WebBikeWorld)
As quoted of BikeExif, Wayne Buys took the inspiration from the aerodynamic shape of the WW2 era fighter planes, later his custom motorcycle work was dubbed the Storm. The custom motorcycle built at his workshop called FabMan Creations, where he also offers repair works and welding for others. Well, most of the custom motorcycle components made by himself at his workshop ranging from stainless steel exhaust systems, fenders, and custom aluminum motorcycle parts.
The Storm unique-shaped custom motorcycle posed along with its creator Wayne Buys. (Picture from: BikeExif)
The Storm project that he worked on featured a series of bodywork made of aluminum shaped manually using a homemade English wheel. Here he works in free form, without a single sketch, render, or template and his metal forming skills were self-taught.
The Storm unique-shaped custom motorcycle body kit made to cover the custom R9T frame is actually made of aluminum sheet. (Picture from: BikeExif)
The body kit made to cover the custom R9T frame is actually made of aluminum sheet. Even more impressive was the builder shaping them by hammering each panel into a tree stump. Overall, the manufacture of all body panels was done for 8 months.
The Storm unique-shaped custom motorcycle's body construction is like a piece of puzzles, where the panels lock onto each other via tiny Allen head fasteners that look like rivets on an airplane. (Picture from: BikeExif)
His custom motorcycle body construction is like a piece of puzzles, where the panels lock onto each other via tiny Allen head fasteners that look like rivets on an airplane. Wayne's bodywork consists of a custom tail section, round tank cover, headlight cover, wheel and fender cover, swing-arm cover and full-length cover. Aluminum panels are also visible on the sides of the tank to channel cool air to the cylinder head.

There are two small intakes on either side of the fully closed front fender directing air to the brakes. While the intake at the rear is equipped with a fan, helping to cool the repositioned oil cooler. Then there's another fan up front to cool the electronics, all of which are under the tank cover. And there's a mesh panel at the top to help the hot air channeling out.
The Storm unique-shaped custom motorcycle has a pair of aluminum handlebars that clamp the fork that effectively acts as a clip-on with the turn signal placement at the end of the handlebars, and the rear view mirror just attached to the right of the handlebars. (Picture from: BikeExif)
In other parts, such as the exhaust and the header, it is deliberately invisible with the output ends through three ports on either side of the belly. Then there is also a grid of holes under the header that functioned to help stop hot air from being concentrated inside.
The Storm unique-shaped custom motorcycle has a special dashboard built with a speedometer from Acewell, and there are several push buttons to perform basic functions. (Picture from: BikeExif)
Then the motorcycle control area, Wayne made a pair of aluminum handlebars that clamp the fork that effectively acts as a clip-on with the turn signal placement at the end of the handlebars, and the rear view mirror just attached to the right of the handlebars. Uniquely, Wayne also made a custom-made reverse lever, as well as the internal throttle for this motorcycle.
All cables run inside the handlebars, with the brake and clutch master cylinders tucked under the bodywork . (Picture from: BikeExif)
All cables run inside the handlebars, with the brake and clutch master cylinders tucked under the bodywork. At the top there is a special dashboard built with a speedometer from Acewell, and there are several push buttons to perform basic functions. The Storm custom motorcycle does not use the ignition key to turn it on, instead by the remote control.

Actually this Storm custom motorcycle has commissioned by one of his customers who brought the BMW R nineT motorbike directly to Wayne Buys' workshop. Those consumers want something that is inspired by aircraft and has a very aerodynamic design. And the result looks like it's just a button press to take off.
Finally, this Storm custom motorcycle built based on the BMW R nineT by FabMan Creations sold for €25,000 EUR (approximately Rp. 387 millions). And for those of you who are interested in buying or commissioning the custom motorcycle like that or elses, you can contact the maker through the FabMan Creations' official website.

This Detonator wouldn't blown anything instead your minds

~Weird ONE~ If You remembered the lighted motorcycles in 'Tron: Legacy' or the motorized vehicles roled in the movie of 'Captain America: The First Avenger'? Or maybe you've known the futuristic Lotus C-01 superbike or the RoboRace future racing cars before. If you think that such those super crazy concepts are meant only for fiction then you might have to change your opinion.
The Cosmic Motors Detonator by Daniel Simon is a straight line dragster has been built for the humanoid droids; normal humans will find it really tough to ride this creation. (Picture from: MotorBeam)
Daniel Simon, the creator of all those super crazy concepts, has come up with yet another mind-blowing concept which has been named the Cosmic Motors Detonator. As an automotive designer, he holds a degree in vehicle design and had earlier designed concept cars for Bugatti and Lamborghini. He is also a part of the VW Group’s Advanced Studio and could be said he is the great designer and vehicle creator.
The Cosmic Motors Detonator by Daniel Simon has been created for his futuristic vehicle design company called the Cosmic Motors. (Picture from: MotorBeam)
Since, this straight line dragster has been built for the humanoid droids; normal humans will find it really tough to ride this creation. The design speaks for itself. It suits the unusual bodies of their mechanical riders. The rider sits way too back and has a big task of handling a elongated front.
The Cosmic Motors Detonator by Daniel Simon is a 11.5-foot long electric motorcycle and powered by a lithium-ion battery, it can go 80-100 miles on a one hour charge. (Picture from: MotorBeam)
As quoted of MotorBeam, till date there're ten units of the Detonators have been manufactured. Though these bike races are slower than the other streamline motorbikes, it is the fire emitting exhausts and the thunderous roar that would interest anyone.
The Cosmic Motors Detonator by Daniel Simon has a long wheel-base, low center of gravity and a sensitive electromagnetic steering. (Picture from: MotorBeam)
This bike is a 11.5-foot long electric motorcycle and powered by a lithium-ion battery, so it can go as far as 80 to 100 miles on a one hour charge. Thus, a long wheel-base, low center of gravity and a sensitive electromagnetic steering is what can describe the Detonator. High speed exhausts gases come in handy to aid better acceleration.
However, this brings some minor glitches in the norms it must follow. In order to keep the vehicle compact, the bike has been designed tightly round the rear wheel. Obviously it is not a bike that everyone can handle, however, if you really wish to own it, keep $100,000 with you as it won’t be a cheap deal. 

The Detonator is one of many futuristic vehicles designed by him has been included inside his book titled the Cosmic Motors, and if You are curious about this futuristic electric motorcycle made by Daniel Simon, please take a look at the following video:

~Unique ONE~ Observing the unique forms of vehicles that exist in the automotive world is indeed exciting and not boring, because they're countless and can certainly never end to talk about.
This is a unique shaped three-wheeled vehicle named Tri Magnum which is estimated to be built in 2011. (Picture from: RoadAndTrack)
A unique vehicle is usually seen from its unusual shape from the general one. So, here's we will discuss about a unique three-wheeled vehicle with a drive that adopts a Honda Goldwing engine. At first glance, when viewed from the shape, it carries the style of the 1980s, and shaped like a bullet.
The Tri-Magnum's front end clearly is taken from a Volkswagen Beetle, and then it combines a wedge-shaped design along with a front-hinged windshield shell opening like a concept car. (Picture from: BringATrailer)
As we can see the Tri-Magnum, as it is called, this unique vehicle was built on the basis of a Honda Gold Wing touring motorcycle which was later converted into a two-seater three-wheeler which was registered as a motorcycle.
The Tri Magnum trike has simple arrangement dashboard and two seater inside its cabin. (Picture from: RoadAndTrack)
Its front end clearly is taken from a Volkswagen Beetle, and then it combines a wedge-shaped design along with a front-hinged windshield shell opening like a concept car.

Here's Katana's fierce looks cafe fighter by Rusty Wrench Motorcycles

~Fierce BIKE~ The old sportsbike is the mainstay of custom materials for the world's builders for their projects. An example is the Suzuki GSX-R1100 with the aura of a cafe racer and a street fighter or cafe fighter produced by Rusty Wrench Motorcycles.

In this project, the crew of Rusty Wrench Motorcycles gave the feel of the Suzuki Katana which was reflected in the headlights. For the change process, the Suzuki GSX-R1100 of the 1996 was immediately stripped down all the bodies.
The look of the Suzuki GSX-R1100 cafe fighter made fierce and macho by Rusty Wrench Motorcycles. (Picture from: GridOto)
Then a new subframe with a bolt-on model was made, which was short and minimalistic and was attached with a tiny LED stop lamp. To complete it, a custom single seat seat was installed with a combination of leather and black Alcantara.
The cockpit area is minimalist and the headlamps are in a Katana style. (Picture from: GridOto)
Next to the front, there is a motorcycle built-in tank which has been replaced with a quick action CNC model from Slingshot Racing. Then the cockpit is made simple with LSL clip-on handlebars, Nissin brake masters, and Motogadget parts. Don't forget to replace the headlights with a box-shaped LED model with a shell that resembles the face of the Suzuki Katana.
While the legs sector gets some light changes by Rusty Wrench Motorcycles. (Picture from: GridOto)
Shifting to the legs, the Rusty Wrench Motorcycles crew did not change much for this Suzuki GSX-R1100. For the front fork, it seems that it still relies on the original default, but the rear suspension has been replaced with a YSS pretentious. Both wheels are also standard but are now provided with Continental Sport Attacks tires and EBC disc brakes.
By applying a new subframe and fitted with elegant custom seats. (Picture from: GridOto)
Moving on to the engine sector, you could say it is still standard and there is only the replacement of the muffler using SC Project products. Then to perfect this bike, also made a rear set, front fender, and a cool belly pan.
Until a frightening Suzuki GSX-R1100 cafe fighter is realized. (Picture from: GridOto)
Finally, for finishing, a metallic gray color is applied to the bodies, while the fork, rims and engine are black. As a result, with all these changes, the Suzuki GSX-R1100 is now transformed into a cafe fighter that looks scary.

Opel Raketen Motorrad

~WuuZZZ~ When we were little, maybe some of us had imagined going very fast in a car or motorcycle equipped with rockets. Well, it must be so great! But who would have thought it was real, turned out that in 1928 there was a motorcycle that was able to go up to 212 kph with six rockets, it was the Opel Motoclub 500SS.
1928 Opel Raketen Motorrad. (Picture from: Silodrome)
Meanwhile, Opel's name may be closer and identical as a car manufacturer that has produced Blazer and Optima models back in the 1990s. However, did you know that from the early 20th century to the 1930s, they also produced motorcycles, from 1901 to 1930 to be exact.

One of their products is a sports motorbike called the Opel Motoclub 500SS. This German-made motorcycle is powered by a single-cylinder 500cc engine capable of achieving a top speed of around 120 kph under standard conditions, then how to increase the speed almost doubled with the same engine?
Opel Neander conventional motorcycle upon which the Raketen Motorrad was based. (Picture from: StrangeVehicles)
This is what seems to tickle the mind of one of the fast vehicle enthusiasts named Fritz von Opel, a grandson of the automaker founder Adam Opel whose intended to set a new world's motorcycle speed record in Freiberg, meanwhile the speed record at the time in 1928 was held by O.M. Baldwin with the French-made Zenith-JAP motorcycle powered by an engine with a capacity of 996 cc.

It turned out that to realize his wish, Fritz von Opel did it in a succinct way, namely by directly installing 6 rockets on the back of the motorcycle which was then activated via the pedal after the motorcycle reached its highest speed. The Raketen Motorrad (rocket motorcycle) is built based on the Opel Motoclub 500SS.
Fritz von Opel posed along with 1928 Opel Raketen Motorrad. (Picture from: Silodrome)
By using a power of 22 hp spewed out of the OHV (OverHead Valve) one cylinder engine is estimated capable to accelerate the motorbike up to approximately 120 kph (75 mph). Then, the six powder rocket tubes attached to the rear fender (3 mounted on each side) with a combined total of 30 kg (66 lb) of thrust would gradually ignite with the help of a foot lever mechanism, then sending the motorbike sped up to a top speed of 212 kph (132 mph).

Unforntunetely, the event to break the land speed record and reached a top speed of 132 mph scheduled in on May 19, 1928 at the Hamborner Radrennbahn, Germany in front of 7000 audiences, was vetoed by the German authorities due to safety reasons. Even though Fritz von Opel is so optimistic that his motorbike will be faster. Nevertheless the rocket powered motorcycle went on to complete a number of demonstration runs and also used as a marketing tool by Opel for a number of years.
The successes of Opel’s four-wheeled rocket racing cars as well as a his light RAK-1 rocket plane, then ends the entire Raketen Motorrad project in 1929. However, the Opel's Neander motorcycle still sold in Germany for a few years, while rocket motorcycle racing continued with the Opel Moto Club under Otto Luhrs. And which can be concluded here at least this innovation has become such an inspiration to the modification realm to keep try.

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 [24022016] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SILODROME]
