Daniel Simons Detonator concept.

Via the Simple Motorcycle Blog:

"Daniel Simons is behind the design of this fantasy Concept motorcyle the Detonator V4 6.0. He has clearly mentioned in his site that this bike is a pure sculpture with no intention of being a functional motor bike. The initial idea was to shape a radical bike using simple shapes such as cubes and cylinders, a heavy & brutal look, with a mix of retro style and modern simplicity.

The Detonator comes without a visible frame. Instead, there is simple block housing the giant 6 liter 4 cylinder engine. All additional parts i.e seat, steering, suspension and exhaust are geometrically linked to the V shaped engine.

The front suspension is a complex lever system. The steering is achieved by an electromagnetic sled located directly behind the front wheel. The pilot controls that digital impulse with the 2 independent handle bars. These control bars also include the front lights..
