Electric motorcycle concept SASUGA is one of Matt Tkocz’s creations. We really enjoyed Matts explanation as to why he made the concept in the first place:
Lately I’ve had the urge to get back onto 2 wheels again. Maybe because it’s been too long. Maybe because I saw Mission Impossible: Fallout. But in any case: I wanted to scratch that itch without actually having to purchase a motorcycle since it can be pricey hobby (and I would probably get myself killed in LA traffic). So I did what any reasonable design person would do in my situation: I decided to design my own concept bike in order to get that bike bug out of my system. While at the same time offering relief to the fact that – even though there is many amazing bikes out there – none of them check ALL my boxes and always leave me somewhat unsatisfied. – Matt Tkocz
SASUGA ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE RENDERS
This was the first render that we looked at. Details on this thing are astonishing with a clear vision of what the designer was trying to achieve with this concept.
The design details and correct motorcycle geometry paired with hub steering says a lot about Matt as a designer and as an engineer.
Sitting position is a little strange ( Not saying we do not like that ), because the legs will have to be on the motorcycle rear swingarm pegs.Those battery packs look like they came from Niu scooter. Dual rear shocks look very cool, and the naked design with fat tire just works. Matt, make it work in reality!
