The concept has a sleek, futuristic design made of tight surfaces and sharp edges.

The design uses an interplay and overlapping of lines and geometric shapes to give the bike a distinctive visual identity.

The chassis uses Audi’s Ultra lightweighting technology, with a combination of carbon fiber and light alloys. An E-tron version could be an interesting variant for the bike.

“Few months later, when I worked at Opel as an exterior designer I had the idea to do a project bike for Audi.”

“The idea was pretty simple: the first competitor of AUDI is BMW, and BMW sell bikes.
