Concept motorcycles are an interesting lens through which we can observe the future of design; to allow visionaries a chance to offer up a particular notion of how the coming decades may influence the way we travel in our day to day lives. The San Francisco-based Huge Moto offered up one such concept, dubbed the MONO RACR, for us to ponder such possibilities.
Starting with a powerful 1000cc Honda in-line 4 cylinder motor, the bike followed what Huge Moto calls a “clean and mean” design philosophy in their approach. Lead engineer on the project Allan Reich worked to design the mainframe and swing-arm to be single piece mono-form carbon fiber construction to enhance the RACR’s weight savings and performance on the track. There are no crazy gizmos, no outlandish design mechanisms. Huge wanted to design a modern sportbike that was sleek in appearance, minimalist in function, and powerful behind the throttle. And with the design firm about to move into their new 4000 sq/ft shop in Soma, we could be in for an actualization of this concept superbike in the coming years.
