In this page we publish a series of motorcycle concepts created by Daniele Pesaresi, a former designer at Bonetto and Italdesign studios. These bikes are part of a design research which combines rétro elements with modern technologies giving birth to concepts deeply grounded into reality.
KTM Café Racer Scrambler
The main characteristic of these motorcycles is represented by the many customization possibilities, especially in the vechicle exterior look, with the goal of expressing a sense of performance and speed. The modern cafè racers always adopt a rétro style.
Rétro design cues are mixed with a cast-tubular hybrid frame, a low center of gravity and a short wheelbase, with the goal of capturing the best from classic as well as modern sportsbikes.
The Vespa Dolcevita is based on the shapely design of the original model of the 1950’s, with a styling reference to the "Corsa" racing versions, where the seat was positioned on the edge of the rear section, which integrates the engine compartment.
The result is a chopper-like Vespa, with a tear-drop shaped rear end and a slightly rearward-sloping seat. It features an essential instrumentation, with a reduced legshield and compact LED lights. The front fender is made of components inspired by the aeronautical world, which pays homage to the first Vespa models, built using parts taken from WWII planes.
At first glimpse, the overall design is balanced towards the rear, with this visual effect being mitigated by the the thin yet present front end.
The cardan-engine section features carbon-fiber parts and is visually separated from the seat-forks upper part. The two parts are joined through a red steel tubular frame, a typical styling cue of the brand.
Distinctive design elements include the large handlebar, a flat seat – typical of off-road bikes and the receding and visually lightweight rear end. The bike is visually projected forwards, which is underlined by the carbon fork-covers.
