UPDATE on October 5th, 2011:

Thanks to the comment posted by our reader chopini we have found out that for this project Jaewan Jeong has made use of non-original material.

More specifically, while the Bike concept was actually designed and modelled by Jaewan Jeong, the background images used for the two sci-fi environment renderings are from works by concept artist and illustrator Maxim Revin. You can find the original artworks on his official blog:

We apologize to all our visitors – and to Maxim Revin – and we plan to be more careful in the future when publishing original projects by emerging designers.

Just for reference, below we report our original article. We reserve to delete it when the situation is fully clarified.

The Gladiator’s Bike is a concept study of a flying racing vehicle inspired by Roman chariots, created for a futuristic, dystopian world. The author is Jaewan Jeong from Korea.

Gladiator Bike ConceptThe concept by design student Jaewan Jeong is a racing vehicle for an imaginary future world where ultra advanced technology goes hand in hand with a wider and wider gap between social classes.

Motorsports races have become a violent fight, much like the gladiator games in the Ancient Rome.

Inspired by the gladiators’ chariots, the flying racing bikes have an essential design that leaves the mechanical parts exposed and features modern weapons on the sides.

“There have been dazzling developments in science and medical science, but they were only for the haves.”

“Life expectancy for healthy people has got close to infinite, but the monopolistic phenomenon has intensified [...] and upper class people gradually started to openly enjoy violent sports.”
