A unique-shaped Hausmann scooter ahead of its time

~Rare ONE~ Finding a unique scooter that we've never seen before is like finding a treasure and giving it its own happiness. We felt this recently, when we found a unique-shaped classic scooter image on QuirkyRides status in Twitter some time ago. At first glance the scooter looks similar to German big scooters such as Maico Mobil, Glas Goggo, or custom-made scooter based on Piaggio Vespa.

We're assure most of you have never seen one before. After we searched for info on the internet and got only a little information from several sources, finally we've found out that it was the Hausman Scooter or Skùtr Hausman which was made long before any other big scooters came into this world. As you can see, it was a unique-shaped scooter prototype made by Jaroslav Hausman, a Czechoslovakian engineer back in 1947. So who is Jaroslav Hausman?

This Hausman Scooter has quite unique parts and it can be said ahead of its time. How not, if you pay attention, this scooter has a fin-like shape that immediately reminds us of the same shape that exists in a series of American's automobiles a decade later and had becoming a trend during 1950s to 1960s.

Although the Hausman Scooter had received many attentions when launched for the first time to public in 1947 at an engineering exhibition in that country with the plan soon to be developed into a mass product, but due to political reasons this never happened.🤔
Well if you are curious this Hausman Scooter whereabout todays.

An Italian Nembo motorcycle applied a unique upside-down engine

~Unique ONE~ Did you know the motorcycle engine configurations are not only limited to one-cylinder inline, two-cylinders inline, V-twin, L-twin, radial engines, etc. Turn out there are many other unique engines that you may not have known about before. There's one thing could be said also to be the determinant of the success of an engine is its placement position, at least that's what an Italian motorcycle manufacturer named Nembo Motorciclette believes.
The Nembo Super 32 Rovescio has a quite unique upside-down position engine, which is an air-cooled three-cylinder engine with a single overhead cam and two valves per cylinder. (Picture from: OddBike)
The company itself was a small Italian company run by Danielle Sabatini, in which all motorcycle manufacturing process done by hand skills, and also using modern manufacturing tools for machine casting, CNC processing and turning machine parts. One of the unique machines made by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer is a prototype motorcycle named Nembo Super 32 Rovescio, the name means 3 cylinder, 2 liter, reversed.
It was further stated that an upside-down machine installation like this is believed to be able to concentrate the pay load in the center of gravity. (Picture from: OddBike)
Although the motorbike name was a quite unique, and maybe it's the first time you've known about. So far the Nembo Super 32 has been built on request only and two prototypes have been built. Two of the first prototypes were built with 1,814 cc engines and had debuted in January 2011. After that the motorcycle maker will start producing a small range of this unique Nembo Super 32 motorcycle equipped with an upside-down 2,000 cc engine.
The Nembo Motorciclette's crew including the boss Danielle Sabatini posed along with the Nembo Super 32 Rovescio during the motorbike test at the Autodromo di Adria. (Picture from: OddBike)
Unmatigated, this Nembo motorcycle even applying a quite fantastic engine, which is an air-cooled three-cylinder engine with a single overhead cam and two valves per cylinder. This powertrain has been upgraded from 1,850 cc to 2,100 cc, and of course you can already guess how fast this bike is. Then what's made the machine is unique due to it's installed in an upside-down position. 

And according to the motorbike maker, the position of the engine like this is inspired by the old airplane engine. It was further stated that an upside-down machine installation like this is believed to be able to concentrate the pay load in the center of gravity. Even this Italian motorcycle manufacturer also claims that their unique machines is capable of spitting out 200 hp (limited) power and 210 Nm of torque.
Daniele Sabatini sat on the saddle of his creation, the Nembo Super 32 Rovescio. (Picture from: OddBike)
Although this motorbike uses an engine with a capacity of about 2,000 cc, it does not automatically make its weight heavy, on the contrary it is stated that this Nembo motorbike weighs about 160 kg. It's really light, try to compare it with the Honda CBR250RR which weighs about 165 kg. Its lightweight could be happened, thanks to the reduction of parts that are not really needed. As for the frame structure, it has been reduced a lot because the engine holder is on top.

So then it makes the gas tank not too big, even though it looks big from the picture because it's just a unibody that covers it. Furthermore, the swing arm is also made of carbon fiber so it is not surprising that it has a light weight. For the legs, this Nembo Super 32 motorcycle is also equipped with an upside down fork from Marzocchis.
According to Sabatini, his company 2,000cc motorcycle' weight as equal as a 1,000 cc motorcycle. It is also reported that the Italian manufacturer will make 11 units of this unique motorcycle, where owner's name will be placed on the plate on their each motorcycles. Unfortunately the company has not revealed the price yet, and just stated there is no certainty because it depends on how many will produce the handmade motorcycles by the company.😅 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NEMBO MOTORCICLETTE | SILODROME | ODDBIKE ]
