Samurai by Artem Smirnov & Vladimir Panchenko
The Samurai is much more than you think. In Japanese, they are usually referred to as bushi; they were part of the upper ranks of society and by the end of the 12th century, they became almost entirely synonymous with discipline and deadly skills. Trained as officers in military tactics and grand strategy, the samurai numbered less than 10% of then Japan’s population; however, their teachings can still be found today in both everyday life and in modern Japanese martial arts. Honoring their culture and dedication, this motorbike concept shows off impressive aesthetics with technical performances to match – hopefully.
Designed by Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko, the Samurai follows the principles of simplicity and spatial awareness Japanese brands are known for. As a result, we are now smiling while staring at this futuristic concept ile making it suitable for the future. Showing off a sleek profile, minimalist design, as well as customizable features, this carbon fiber beauty might get mainstream builders a bit worried – or, at least, motivated; either way, this project means good news for motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere.
