Design of an electric bike to test its appeal for youth market
Client wanted us to design a concept bike which could be test marketed for its acceptability in youth segment. With technical specifications & process constraints as input we started working around standard chassis/frame and battery units. Several concepts were proposed, referring to the popular bike trends in market & evaluation. Thermocole mock-ups were built to give better idea about product volume, proportions and styling elements. Engineering of the finally selected model was done and prototypes developed using CNC cut aluminum/wooden patterns to built FRP parts.
The outcome is a Sporty bike, incased batteries, fuel Tank with sculpted surfacing & trendy head light fairing.
The project was completed in record 3 months time. Bikes were displayed at AutoEXPO 2010, Delhi.
