Harley-Davidson Trunk, the Electric Concept

Here's a truly glorious bike concept from Nicolas Petit, even if we'd rather call it a dream which will never come true: Trunk, the electric Harley-Davidson.

The "bike that never was" brings forth a very nifty design with a different approach to traditional bike building, and this gives it quite a distinctive allure. Petit says this concept should incorporate both natural and recycled materials, for a truly green twist.

Trunk could come with an 135V 35 kW (48 HP) brushless motor and 65 Nm (lb-ft) of torque, fed by a 6.5 kWh Li-Ion-Polymer battery with 4500 cycles and a 4-hour recharging time. Petit added dual 320mm wave rotors in the front, squeezed by 4-piston calipers and a single 2piston caliper for the 310mm rear brake disc.

Nicolas Petit's electric Harley-Davidson could do up to 130 km/h ( above 80 mph) and could deliver up to 5 hours of urban riding. Add in the state-of-the-art epicyclical transmission integrated in the rear hub for an even more future-focused H-D build.

Is the electric H-D Trunk cool? By all means, yes! Will we ever see such a machine quietly rolling by in the neighborhood? Most likely not. Anyway, we're glad to see that visionaries such as Petit are crossing the "holiest of borders"...
