And now for an old-timer project... I designed this reptile on wheels in 1992 (where did the time go??) :) This hydrogen-powered V2 engine bike predates the current hybrid/Prius/battery-driven age by a few years. I wanted to show back then that environmental consciousness and the fascination of motorcycling/speed can go hand-in-hand. The design process was explicitly non-digital (as it really was irrelevant in product design back then, too slow, 3D programs too much in its infancy). Good old fashioned sketches and model-making created this beast. The H2 is a half scale model comprised of about 500 handmade parts... I hope you find that it still has relevance and a timelessness about it. After all, this motorcycle design is about exposing the marvels of design and engineering instead of hiding everything behind a 'pretty' shell, not just a styling exercise...
