High-Speed Motorcycle With a Tunnel Through It, Designed by Scanning Rider in Extreme Crouched Position

UK-based White Motorcycle Concepts is developing an electric prototype, the WMC250EV, that’s been designed in an unusual way: Company founder and CEO Rob White was laser-scanned while adopting an extreme racing crouch position, and then the bike was designed around his body.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

White’s goal was extreme aerodynamic efficiency, and thus the bike has a tunnel that runs through it from front to back.

They say that the bike’s sculpting has yielded an unheard-of drag coefficient of 0.118. White also reckons that the two-wheel-drive bike, which is powered by four electric motors, will be able to reach speeds of around 400 km/h (249 mph).

The intro video is interesting, but unfortunately it was edited as if they were hoping to induce seizures in the viewership:

White is patenting the design, and plans to take it to Bolivia next year to break electric land speed records.
