The Saline Bird in an innovative concept compressed air powered motorbike from the minds of designers : Charles-Edouard Berche, Ugo Spagnolo , Adrien Fuinesl, Frédéric Dobbelstein, Jean-Philippe Paries.
The Saline Bird motorbike’s frame would be constructed from carbon fiber to reduce on weigh yet provide the strength required to accomodate the rider in a flat riding position to allow for maximum aerodynamic efficiency. With the compressed air tanks nestled under the riders chest, roughly in the same location as on petrol powered bikes.
This isn’t the first motorbike concept to use compression air as a concept fuel, but it would be great to see the concept drawings make the leap from computer to reality to see is the compressed air powered concept could actual perform. Only time will tell.
