‘Kickboxer’ is a rather suggestive name for a concept motorcycle powered by a Subaru WRX engine and that is precisely what caught our attention about this project in the first place. Then, of course, we saw the radical-looking motorcycle behind the bad ass name and started to dig a little deeper into the story only to find that the concept belongs to Ian McElroy, who had it all in his mind for a little while and who then had to learn how to use Solidworks in order to come up with this.

Apart from the car engine, we’re also impressed by the innovative suspension system featuring two single-sided swingarms. This is precisely what allowed the designer to create the aggressive and very compact overall look, while the aviation-inspired finishing touches are simply excellent. Does this stand a chance to turn into the Mustang of motorcycles or what?

Looks good but that WRX engine looks heavy.
