Through development, my concept began to look far too similar to a prototype model released by Yamaha in 2005, called the ‘Tricker Air’.
I feel I need to take a step back and see how I can develop a unique form. That cannot be compared to another motorcycle of similar concept.
As described earlier my three key words are:
On top of these three key words, there are obviouse elements that need to be implemented into a entry level commuter motorcycle for the 16-22 year old age bracket.
One of these elements would be practicality, and another would be safety. These elements of design are a given. So in the matter of making my motorcycle differentiable I will be focusing on my above three key words Thrill, Skill and Sociable whilst still making the concept safe and practical.
My 3 key words.
Sociable, stands for being able to hang out with your mates after school on the weekends. Take the bike, learn some new tricks. Develop some mechanical ability. Play around.
Skill, stands for being able to learn and develop riding skills and new stunts. A new hobby for our target market to get into. The hobby gets more exciting, the more skills and tricks you learn. Skill goes hand-in-hand with Sociable as our target market will develop these new skills whilst hanging out and practicing with friends.
Thrill, stands for the excitement of riding this bike. The bikes stance and proportions look exciting, like its ready to do jumps and tricks even while standing still. This is a bike made for fun commuting with an emphasis on fun!
