 Ukrainian designer Rostyslav Matiukhin brings the electric ROS.M concept

The Ros.M is an electric motorcycle concept with a somewhat unusual design. Presented by the Ukrainian designer Rostyslav Matiukhin. 

The designer has already made clear that his concept completely ignores existing conventions. And the headlight is the first thing that strikes an observer as an exaggeration. But there’s more. 

The headlights are visible on the upper, front part of the fender, below which there are two electrically operated flaps to direct airflow to the radiators for “cooling” purposes. 

Unusual design

The design arrives from the need to minimize weight and optimize the construction space.

The advantages of the light cone include in a fender are

  • An excellent close-up illumination,
  • High safety even in an emergency braking, and
  • A significant lowering of the ambient noise level is due to the absorption of the sound waves via conduction.

The disadvantage is a significantly increased unsprung masses’ weight.

It’s one thing to build a concept of an electric motorcycle, but this is entirely different. And I’m not talking about the fact that this is a futuristic motorcycle with clean lines and carbon decoration. Look at the structure of wheels and frame. 

Instead of a traditional frame, its frame comes made of multiple tubes, the bodywork itself.

 

Front fender integrated with the headlamp

Because of the design, the windscreen is extremely far forward to the rider. The combination of a lively windshield and a tiny rider may remind some of us in a locomotive with the head looking out of the window. 

However, that’s not the case. The windshield gets the optimal position. Further, we get to see the console integrated with it, and the windscreen helps protect dirt and water.

The Ros.M is a fast-paced machine to ensure that you will have 150 kilometres in range with a maximum speed of 140 kilometres per hour and weighs 175 kgs. 

Rear gets maximum protection

As mentioned earlier, you can charge the intelligent battery pack by placing it in the hole where the fuel tank goes typically.

So far, we’ve seen all those models that tend to be expensive, and it seems like the ROS.M concept, if it comes to production, wants to make an 11,000 US dollars motorcycle, and it would be a first in this niche.
