    OUCH…Who approved and paid for this design?:))

    Whats up with the blades blocking the front wheel steering? How can you even present a design that cannot perform the most basic functions such as steering? Is this motorcycle un-ridable, if so is it a motorcycle?

    Some quick advice to Serge Rusak..Alow the blades to slide back into the fairing and claim that they’re security devices to prevent the bike from being stolen.

    The youtube presentation is also a joke because of all the possible design solutions to chose from the designer had the genius to call out the “Swingarm Screw” and the “Exhaust Heat Deflector” that looks like it deflects from the bottom, i.e the road…because heating the road up is a big problem..

    By the way, details of this design would could go to make a much better electric sportsbike.

    To all the designers out there..keep it real. You all have talent and many good design opportunities ahead of you, don’t waste your time on the frivolous. The world is already saturated with too much junk.
