French designer Romain Herment considers that nuclear fusion will allow the turning of nuclear energy into a power source for motorcycles. Not only that, but he has even come up with a concept bike meant to reveal the designer’s idea about how motorcycles based on the new technology will look like.

The “Motorbike 2050 version 2,” as it is called, is a fairly cool looking thing with plenty more interesting details needed to be unveiled. For instance, it will supposedly rely on deuterium and tritium – two inexhaustible natural elements – to make it efficient, as efficient as 1 liter of water per 100 km can be four decades from now.

While we have no knowledge of version 1, we must say that for this project the designer made sure to cover every single aspect such as power being generated by an electric engine weighing only 55kg, but they don’t mention much about the materials used to achieve the overall also light weight.

Each time I see something like this, I start thinking more and more seriously about recording a Harley for when we’ll be riding on this sort of motorcycles.

there is a misunderstanding in the article:
it is the engine which weighs 55kg not the whole motorbike. However thanks to its nanotechnology materials the motorbike is lighter than an average motorbike.

Now regarding the protection of the driver from radiations, there is a protective crankcase around the engine.

hoping this will help to understand the full potential of this concept.
