Created by Barbara Custom Motorcycles, this series of bike concepts depicts the future for bike brands Husqvarna, Triumph, Yamaha and BMW. The France-based design preparation shop is directed by the enigmatic ‘Barbara’, and has created no less than one forty captivating renderings in the past, all of which exhibit a unique and authentic interpretation of each brand. Barbara Custom Motorcycle’s otherworldly renderings blur the boundaries between fantasy and reality: while each of these bikes lend themselves to different landscapes, all of their individual styles certainly carry a sci-fi influence.
The Husqvarna ‘Ampulex Compressa’ is a futuristic bike with a from that appears to take influence from the rare Lotus ‘C-01’, and the white ‘Ghost’ custom by Smoked Garage.
In contrast ‘Barbara’ takes a different approach with the Triumph ‘Black Matter’ motorcycle, with the fuel tank, and seat integrated seamlessly, creating a clean, minimalist form that fits Ridley Scott’s ‘Blade Runner’.
Barbara then forsees the future of BMW motorrad in cutting-edge landscapes, with both concepts featuring a pointed tails like a wasp. Visually, the French design preparation shop has made the ‘Raven’ and ‘Sting’ motorcycles look like they are built with a minimalist aesthetic. Like the inspiration that can be found in great sci-fi films through the years, barbara’s renderings can serve to inspire manufacturer’s designers to take greater risks, to design truly dramatic and mesmerizing motorcycles.
