M-Org Custom Motorcycle Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

Honestly, we don't know what it means to have a "frame, suspension and steering grown from organic substances," but whatever it is, you can see it in the image above. Looks kinda cool, no? Designer Michael Smolyanov describes a process of using fluorine to "destruct the organics and process the carbon" of the frame, leaving a strong and lightweight structure. Whatever that means.

In any case, this concept motorcycle is supposed to be eco-friendly, though it's powered by what appears to be an air-cooled V-twin engine. Perhaps it would run on alcohol fuel? Looking over the design, the M-Org concept also appears to have some sort of mashup between a Cannondale Lefty and a BMW Telelever fork design.

Finally, the John Deer-esque color scheme is complemented by a saddle that you might expect to see on a very old and well-used tractor. Practical, or even possible? No, most likely not. But if you're gonna go way out there for a concept, might as well go all the way. See for yourself in our high-res image gallery below, and check out some more of Smolyanov's designs here.

      What it lacks in beauty, it more than makes up in uselessness.
      • 4 Years Ago
      i think it is gorgeous
        • 4 Years Ago
        I agree-- I think it's awesome. Very original.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I agree! I'd take this over a Harley any day

      Hard to describe? How about this?

      Ugh.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I think "ugly" could describe it. IMHO.

      That seat might be comfortable if my name was Shaniqua and I weighed like 300lb. Maybe then it would fit nicely between my ***-cheeks. :-/

      looks like something a Navii dreamed up... good for driving in Pandora

      Looks as if it were designed by a person who was jacked on something equally organic.

      I had the misfortune of operating a tractor with one of those seats for some time. Talk about a pain in the ... Seriously, I think that's where the saying originated from.

      Its hard to comprehend what Im looking at. I know It looks kinda...... Gross.... I guess would be the word.
      • 4 Years Ago
      mmm ... you said cannondale lefty.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Imagie how over built a fork would have to be to resist torsional loads with the weight of a motorcycle wheel/tire on it.

        The Lefty does a good job on mountainbikes, rode one today actually, but I still feel like it is a touch squirmy in certain situations - def not something I want on a motorcycle at highway speeds.

      Good God. If a weird, kinky alien came to Earth and had a one-night stand with a John Deere, this might be the result.

        How many headlights does one truly need? Doesn't seem very efficient to have 10 headlights.

        How is it that I was the first to comment on this particular article, and much the same has been echoed in the sentiments of others (all I said was it's ugly...and yet somehow I find myself loving it)...but, oddly, I've strangely disappeared in to the annals of nowheresville? Have I been banished? Scorned? Offended some higher power? Weird...

        comment of the weekend!

      Hard to describe but impossible to wipe the ugliness away once seared into the back of one's eyeballs.
      Yikes.
