Hyundai Aebulle Concept Motorcycle

This cool vehicle is Hyundai Aebulle concept, especial it is a Motorcycle but not a car, which is designed by Shane Baxley from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.

The concept was designed to be powered by compact in-wheel electric motors coupled with lithium batteries stored in the floor of the vehicle. It’s front wheels are connected to separate independent swing arms that allow the Aebulle to glide around corners. The body is made up of an aluminum frame and the “windshield” is made up of aluminum oxynitride glass. The whole top of the three-wheeler lifts up, taking with it the center console and allowing the passenger to make his exit.

While an enclosed motorcycle might be moving dangerously close to efficient, one-seat car, this one earns a little respect for its sheer awesome design. Brought to us by Shane Baxley, a design student at Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design, the vehicle “delivers the mobility and speed of a motorcycle while offering the safety that a cocoon offers a butterfly. The Aebulle is targeted for the Los Angeles region where it would utilize the commuter lanes allowing its occupant a quick commute.” In LA, it should also earn you a conversation or two with a scantily-clad blond beauty.

Baxley got pretty creative with the Aebulle (cocoon in Korean), incorporating two  independently-mounted front wheels, in-wheel motors, floor-mounted li-ions and an e-ink display for information like speed and fuel. It may take away a little of the wind-in-your-face freedom of today’s motorcycle, but it looks incredibly fun to drive.
