The ARAC ZXS combines an original body design, with a ultra light aluminum chassis and a massive V-twin motor.
The most distinctive feature is the package: compared to the competitors in the street fighters market segment it is smaller and lighter and yet it’s combined with a large displacement unit.
The design is aggressive, with sharp lines and curves surrounding the engine compartment.
As Marko Petrovic explains, “The idea was to create a body design that naturally continues through the whole frame giving the impression of a metal skin with two tone-color (in this case black and fire orange).”
The seating area is also quite large providing better comfort, and it ends with a thinner tail carrying back light.
The front headlight is made of light emitting recycled glass plates which give a distinctive appearance and provide optimal visibility.
An additional smart feature is the ‘safe drive’ system, which monitors speed and distance of other vehicles around, and in case of necessity can automatically activate the brake system.
With this project, the Serbian designer is planning to create a conceptual brand named “ARAC” with the goal of proposing new ideas in different areas of transportation through digital media.
