A Koenigsegg Motorcycle? Burov Art’s Concept Cycle
Burov Art Dream Up A Koenigsegg Motorcycle
Updated August 8, 2018
Koenigsegg may usually be associated with high-performance sports cars but a recent motorcycle concept may unlock the doors for the Swedish manufacturer to turn their attention to two wheeled pursuits. Perhaps after the success of Caterham’s monster Brutus concept, we’ll be seeing more sports car companies taking on motorcycles in the future?
This Is Burov Art’s Awesome Koenigsegg Motorcycle Concept
This amazing Koenigsegg motorcycle concept was drawn up by Russian designer Burov Art, who has taken his incredibly clean concept straight from the pages of science fiction.
Despite the overall futuristic styling, Burov Art decided to revert to retro, dual rear shocks rather than accommodate a more modern mono-shock configuration on this Koenigsegg motorcycle concept; couple that with a super short seat and tailpiece that barely even attempts to conceal the bike’s twin exhausts and you’re on to a rear end setup that looks nothing less than ferocious.
As for the front, you’ve got a simple and ‘less is more’ approach to the headlight which may look subtle and understated to some eyes but sadly looks like the top of a Coke can to mine. However, the look is complimented by the all-encompassing fairings that give the bike an elegantly clean silhouette with minimalist stylings.
Sharp eyed readers win extra points for noticing the dramatic similarity that this Koenigsegg concept motorcycle has with the 2014 Lotus C-01 concept by Daniel Simon, best known for his redesign of Lightcycle for Tron Legacy. The similarity is uncanny to the point of laughable, especially as many of Burov Art’s other concept attempts are ripped straight from Daniel Simon’s head and executed just a little bit worse. If you take a look at both of their blogs, you’ll see what we mean. The major difference between the Koenigsegg and the Lotus is that Burov Art has designed a motorcycle that celebrates and welcomes the future, where Simon’s Lotus seems to be stuck in the past, desperately trying to hold on to the faded glory and golden age of racing.
Design details aside, we all know that two motorcycles can look similar but it’s what’s on the inside the counts. Since both bikes are no more than conceptual drawings, we’ll never know until either of them decides to make the transition to two wheels. What’s for certain is that whatever engine goes underneath the fairing, it’ll be predictably fast and luxuriously smooth.
The Koenigsegg concept may be a bit of a copy job but come on, you’d still want one. Or both. If you’re like me, you’ll end up with neither but you’ll be happy enough to look at the pictures.
