Transformative Motorcycle Design
BY MATTHEW ROBERTS
@ PECHAKUCHA NIGHT SPECIAL @ AUTODESK POP-UP
ON NOV 08, 2015
"The easiest way to describe what we do is like a two wheeled equivalent of the Eames LCW. We're looking for something that's timeless and embodies the essence of motorcycles."
Matthew Roberts of Speedtractor Industries, a custom motorcycle and design studio in Tokyo known from its elegant and personal custom creations, believes motorcycle design has finally come of age, to a place and time where people can appreciate the truest essence of motorcycling. Matthew discusses how a movement of bespoke design houses like his, offer riders and non-riders alike a glimpse of how a a new wave of contemporary design sense won't necessarily have to be rooted in a bygone time, nor will it likely loose it's mod look decades from now. An ultimately cool PechaKucha.
