Unveiled at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, the Sbarro motorcycle concept looks like ready for the Bonneville Salt Flats, but taking a better look at that riding position, I don’t believe that crashing would be an option for the rider. Not that it would for any rider in generally, but a Sbarro rider’s members are exposed, leaving the machine’s entire weight to fall on them if, unfortunately, this crashes.
Thanks goodness, the silhouette you see in the pictures is only a mannequin, but one that is precisely squeezed in so that it would become one with the bike. So where there would normally be the wheels hubs now “bolt in” the courageous rider’s hands and the visor stands as the screen.
It may look fast, but definitely not safe considering that in the case of a crash, the rider’s chances to walk away are bigger if he separates from the bike.
