"When Honda sponsored me on a project with the brief of designing ‘mobility for the masses’ I decided to use the opportunity and address a problem which directly affects a sixth of the global population: there is currently 1.2 billion people with no access to clean, safe water.
This motorcycle is based on an in-wheel electric engine that has been thought to match the current advances in solar and wind power throughout developing regions such as Central Africa. The wheel containing battery and engine (front and rear, respectively) is made of rubber and will give a certain amount of suspension. The idea is to be able to replace the wheel surface with any material at hand (natural fibers, rubber leftovers, old tires) and in general have as few pieces as possible."
