Got a note from Dan Anderson in Sydney, Australia about his design for an electric motorcycle called the Voltra. It’s his thesis project for Industrial Design and it looks well thought out and very minimal.
My concern when looking at it was knee placement, the mounting bolt for the seat and tail section seems to be right where your knee would naturally fall. I included an illustration of rider position and it seems to confirm my thoughts but it may be the side perspective that only makes it appear that way.
Other than that, it looks good. Without a gas tank or air box to worry about, electric motorcycles can take design in a different direction and the Voltra underscores that point. Nice work, Dan.
