      Voltra - Lean, green, streetfightin' machine

      Let's face it; we bikers are going to have to kick our petrol drinking habit in the foreseeable future and make way for alternate fuel machines.

      But think electric bikes and most of us conjure up images of piddly little battery powered scooters. Sure there are lots of chaps building interesting electric racing bikes for the TTXGP, but a hot looking electric street bike just hasn't been done yet. Enter the Voltra - an electric motorcycle concept penned by Daniel Anderson, an industrial design student from Australia.

      The Voltra demonstrates the wonderful design possibilities electric motorcycles hold in the future. Free of an internal combustion engine and all the components that are associated with it, such as a fuel tank, exhaust, air box and cooling systems, Dan's design is simplicity itself, and at the same time, something to behold. At the heart of the Voltra is a carbon fibre monocoque frame designed to house four lithium iron phosphate batteries which could in the future be replaced with higher efficiency batteries or even any other electrical power source such as a micro fuel cell. Bolted on to the end of the frame is an AC induction motor in an aluminium housing which also incorporates the pivot for the bike's stunning trellis frame swingarm a -la Bimota.
