Adrian Carrera's New Zero-Emission Racing Motorcycle Concept

Auto designer Adrian Carrera recently created a new concept for a zero-emission racing motorcycle. Dubbed Carrera Raptor RS, the motorcycle is propelled by electric motors located inside each wheel.

Every visible rims in both the wheels holds an internal rim and has a static shape, which rotates along with the brake disk and the tire. Due to a gyroscope rotation system, the front tire can also rotate in its own axis.

Compared to other conventional motorcycles, where the front tire move with the movement of the handlebar, at Carrera Raptor RS the front tire can be controlled electronically. The bike has a very good stability at high speed, because it has an inverted wing shape.
