It`s called the Lane Splitter. And it was envisioned in a brainstorming session at argodesign in Texas after a guy named Mark Wilson of Fast Company came to them with a rough idea he`d used as a concept in a video series Creative Director for the Day. He wanted to come up with real design he could take to the New York Auto Show.
Don`t expect to see the Lane Splitter on the roads any time soon. It`s still a concept with a lot of technical problems to be solved such as how the two motorcycles would be securely coupled and how a motorcycle with one flat side and one curved side would perform to name two. But it`s fun to imagine the freedom it would offer. And, hey, all innovations have to start somewhere.
