When is a motorcycle not a motorcycle? The 'Magic Tricycle' By Seyyed Javad.

Via: car design news

"The Magic Tricycle is a unique concept in the way that it drives on all three wheels for normal highway use, but can rotate around a longitudinal axis running from the front to the rear right wheel with the left wheel elevated into the air so the vehicle can be ridden as a motorcycle in more congested areas. To facilitate this, the seats rotate to keep the occupants sitting upright and the airborne wheel opens up blades which work like a helicopter tail propeller to aid stability.

Iranian designer Javad described the design process to Car Design News and said that “One of the biggest challenges in this concept was designing it in such a way to be beautiful, attractive and harmonic in both its two shapes.”
