‘Hope’ is a fully electric motorbike using lithium batteries. Rear wheel engine. Power: 21 Kw (28 hp). Torque: 65 Nm. Maximum speed: 130 Km/h. Autonomy: up to 230 km.It is based on a Vectrix VX-1 platform made of aluminum and the frame itself is very strong and light.
The name ‘Hope’ was chosen for its original meaning but also for the signification of his onomatopoeia suggesting for me, a move made with ease.
“The original scooter from Vectrix is not really my thing, but when you take off all the secondary elements on it, you find a very cool and well-built base. It is all made of aluminum and the frame itself is very strong and light.”
It took Samuel four years to create ‘Hope’—from the initial concept to the final bike you see here. Working alone, he started with sketches before fleshing the design out with 3D renderings. The data exported from those renderings was then used to build the final form.
You can definitely see the Porsche details in the design. The frame is smooth and rounded like some of the most iconic Porsches, as well as being futuristic and sleek like an iPhone. As for the Pokémon, we haven’t a clue.
The curved scooter is made from aluminum just like all of Shiny Hammer’s other creations. It sits on a Vectrix VX-1 platform made of aluminum.
