Tesla Model M Concept
The Tesla Model M design study was created by digital artist Jans Slapins.
The concept is all electric (obviously) and looks like a design the folks at Tesla might build. The likelihood of this bike being built is slim, but it does show some interesting ideas should Tesla venture in a two-wheeled direction.
The motorcycle starts with a 150kW electric motor, which features four different drive modes of Race, Cruise, Standard, or Eco. The motorcycle's lithium ion batteries are mounted low in the frame to help keep the center of gravity low. There's also a fuel tank that doesn't hold fuel. Instead, it is a water-tight storage pod to carry the rider's belongings.
The Tesla Model M has an aluminum frame and carbon fiber wheels to keep its weight down. Suspension is a mono shock at the back and upside down forks in the front. It's a stunning and well-conceived idea. Maybe Tesla will be inspired and try to build it for real.
