This is a project I will be working on during and after my brake. I really excited about this project due that I was driven to attend school by transportation fascinations. This a project is sponsored by kawasaki motors and design, they came to my school with a motorcycle challenge. We are to design a motorcycle with a futuristic intent, a motorcycle that is going to be ridden in 5 years from now. The cool thing about this project is that kawasaki offered their mechanic shop to work on when the one in ours school is close. We were also provided with the chassis from a Z1000 Kawasaki motorcycle. Unfortunately, we weren't supplied with the motor; although, we a could ask for any extra parts.
The pictures here show some of the work done in the first week of the project. We took the chassis and took all the parts that weren't need it. We also lower the oil on the shocks of the front handle bars to decrease the altitude of the cylinder so I could fit our design.
Here is the final rendering of Aleka and the city of Bluevera. I've spend roughly 6-8 hours trying to made a good composition. This view of the city helped study and understand the life of the character I was designing. This project is now done, the final model was placed a show case at school for show. I was thrilled to see the final model, the mechanics on the head also came out illustrious.
