Izh Motorcycle Concept by Igor Chak is inspired from the 1929 Soviet Izh–1. The bike retains nothing but a few styling cues from the original Russian bike as the designer has considered an 850 ccm (51.83 cubic inches) V-twin engine, modern looks and all the possible gadgets for it.
Half built from heat resistant and highly reinforced plastic, the 140 hp engine should be light and even feature built in wiring and circuitry. The classic engine, which has a fuel-regulating system for better fuel economy, can be mated either to a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission. Electronics would control the throtle system, clutch and brakes.What makes this a hybird is the additional 60kw electric motor found in the rear wheel. This one is fed from a Lithium Sulfide Battery and gets a two-speed speed gearbox.
Apart from featuring a GPS navigation system, the Izh-1 is compatible to iPhone, Windows, Blackberry, Symbian, Android etc so that riders would stay connected all through their journey. The bike would work in three different modes – sport, comfort and manual – and be fitted with traction control, ABS as well as a proximity regulating radar system front facing on-board camera helping riders maintain a safe distance from vehicles ahead if these happen to brake suddenly.
