The Honda Chopper looks like a cross between a Tron Lightcycle and a space ship from Star Wars. It has been designed by Pete Norris to blend modern looks with cutting edge tech that would propel the rider along like a bat out of hell.
After reading up on the design it’s of no surprise that Pete is a fan of Star Wars, in particular the Phantom Menace which is where he drew inspiration from.
Under the uber-cool skin lays not one, but three engines. One biofuel engine does most of the hard work whilst two smaller electric engines on each of the wheels provide a bit of extra grunt. As with a traditional chopper the suspension stretches out in front of the bike with the rider positioned three-quarters of the way back. Subtle lighting follows the lines of the Honda Chopper; this makes it look sic-fi whereas the grey paneling makes it look clinical and menacing.
The dual exhausts are further split into four which gives the appearance of quad afterburners protruding from the rear of the Chopper. It’s safe to say the design is not built for function but awesome looks, can you imagine seeing this tearing down the highway?
