Transform two motorcycles into a car & back again.

RTWW loves a good ‘out there’ futuristic bike and this new concept model has that and a whole lot more.

The pictures are of the “Plug-In” concept car/bike by Ramesh Gound, dreamed up as his final year Diploma project at the National Institute of Design.  Gound says there’s a “buy 1 get 1 free” shopping attitude in the market around the Ahmedabad area of India where he’s based.  This everyday idea gave Gound the inspiration to take two motorcycles and give them the ability to link them in the middle to make a car!

The two drive-by-wire bikes allow a biking houshold to combine their rides to create a car for a relaxing long journey, then at your destination, break apart and go exploring.  The extra car bodywork is made of D3O, which when the bikes are not attached, neatly folds away within the bike’s frame.   There are no engine details but it would be an idea to make the bikes electric vehicles that doubled their range as a car, that would definately make it a vehicle for the future.
