Having picked up on a story yesterday about Jim Taylor, the first man to attempt riding to the North Pole by motorcycle, how apt to drop upon this new radical design for a snow bike today. We’re not exactly talking two wheels here, but maybe this new machine will make a trip to the poles a reality for adventure bike riders.
The Kvant is a concept motorbike designed to increase mobility in difficult Arctic regions as well as a boost the winter sports experience for adventure enthusiasts. The bike is the result of a radical mix of motorcycle and snowmobile features. There’s a mono curving ski at the front and an efficient belt drive at the rear. It looks uncomfortable to sit on but the designers assure that a rider will be able to sit comfortably on the extended exhaust pipe whilst holding the handles.
