Hubless bikes and bicycles seem to be gaining popularity in concept designs nowadays. Paying homage to the original V1000, Kiwi designer Selwyn Shadbolt has created a bike concept named the “Britten V1000 E” that featuring a compact and light design.
Generating power from a single large capacity electric engine, the Britten Electric Motorbike Concept is shaft driven onto hubless rims. Featuring the fairings molded from polyethylene to give it a clean and elegant appearance, the Britten V1000 E touts smooth curves backed by minimal design to beat the heat on the road.
