There are many motorcycle manufacturers that make cars and bikes, like Honda, Yamaha, and BMW. Luxury and boutique brands like Aston Martin and Ariel have recently dived into making a motorcycles. But what it one of the most luxurious brands, Bugatti, decided to make one?
While Bugatti has no intention of doing so, one intrepid designer from India wanted to imagine what it would look like.
What if Bugatti created a motorcycle? That's the question that lingered inside Anay Kshirsagar's head when coming up with The Audacieux.
The Audacieux (French for audacious) is the impressive, curvy, and futuristic result. Somewhat similar to the Light Cycle in the movie, Tron, it looks to the future while still paying homage to Bugatti's signature styling cues. Among them are the trademark C-shaped design (evident in the Veyron and Chiron) and the horseshoe grille, a bugatti trademark since the very beginning.
Besides the signature design cues, it also integrates some tech Bugatti would most likely integrate if it were to make a motorcycle. The front, for instance, features the front swingarm from a hub-center steering system, this time attached to the spokeless rim, since there's no hub to speak of. The rider sits of the arch, which has handlebars jutting out. The end of the arch features and LED headlight. The rear, on the other hand, seems to use a hardtail design. For visibility, the bike features a stylish rear LED taillight that reflects on the rear wheel fender.
Though it's never said what powers the bike, not even Kshirsagar, if this were to be built, that would be the most obvious choice to keep the design's lines clean. There's no evidence of any fuel tank or muffler either.
Of course, this is just a concept render. It is not an official Bugatti concept, nor is it any hint that Bugatti will go into motorcycle manufacturing. We certainly wish it were real though.
