Meet Spirito: The Alfa Romeo Concept Bike
Trying to capture the racing heritage of an automobile maker, and embedding it into a motorcycle is probably one of the toughest tasks for a designer. Here we find a new design courtesy of Mehmet Doruk Erdem for Alfa Romeo – dubbed the Spirito. Looking a bit like a cross between a Star Wars landspeeder and a Formula 1 racer, the Alfa Romeo Spirito was designed to reflect the rich heritage of Italian style and customs. The bike features an oversized front portion to house a powerful engine, while the rear is crafted with transparent materials to reveal the bike’s inner workings. Executed in Alfa Romeo’s hallmark red, the motor-craft also houses a custom brown leather seat and exposed shocks.
Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing this on the road anytime soon.
