He pointed out that batteries can be made into almost any shape and electric motors are much smaller than an internal combustion engine, allowing designers much more flexibility with their creations.
Consequently, we’ve seen some other kooky designs such as the Essence e-raw with its suspended seat and “tank”, the bug-like Johammer, the wild Zec00 and the Racer X shaped like an “X”.
Tryal was design by Erik Askin, the Associate Design Director at New Deal Design in San Francisco.
“The future of motorcycling will hinge on getting more riders on two wheels,” Erik says.
“Among an industry catering towards performance and horsepower, the Tryal Bike offers a friendlier approach. Simple, approachable and most importantly … fun, this is a bike that is easy for anyone to ride.
“Bold colours, clean iconic forms, and fun features such as the customise-able dot matrix headlight, makes the Tryal an exciting new choice for future riders.
“A modern day mini-moto with 14” wheels, electric drive train, and upright geometry the Tryal is a blast for learning or simply a fun way to get around town.”
