If the motor vehicle embodies the world's oil addiction problem, the actual engine is the motivating force behind that addiction. So, when Henrik Björkman decided to make an scooter, he made sure to leave the engine out... literally. Where the engine in a motorcycle or scooter would normally be, there is nothing. The "anti-engine" exists to make a "visual statement" that this machine is different. Unfortunately, that statement probably makes the Thunderbolt a bit impractical to ride.

There are other cool details to notice on this machine, especially the bar-mounted instrumentation. We also like the very cool wheels and headlight, but do not expect to see anything quite like this on the road anytime soon, unless it's going downhill.
