Peter Norris, who recently designed the Pininfarina Coupe Concept, has also been hard at work on this electric motorcycle concept called the Honda Chopper. Although the design is said to have been inspired by Star Wars, we think that this chopper could also fit right in to cyberpunk film Akira or even in Tron. The Honda Chopper has an extra long front suspension, a feet-forward seating position, and in-wheel electric motors for super-efficient (and fast!) travel.
Electric in-wheel motors not only help improve the efficiency of this bike; they also lower the center of gravity, improving handling and performance. We can’t wait to see if Honda will actually bring this green bike to market. It’s not out of the question, since the forward-thinking automaker spends heavily on R&D for new and efficient technologies. Click through our photo gallery to ogle the concept while you wait.
