Sharker Motorcycle Features Monocoque Body

January 5, 2010


The Sharker, despite its name, has no interest in pulling your top down and exposing your breasts in public. No, it's cool just being a monocoque motorbike and feeling the occasional butt on its supple leather seat.

While most cars switched to monocoque construction (a technique that supports structural load by using an object's exterior, as opposed to using an internal frame) back in the '60s or '70s, motorcycles have stuck with a traditional supporting framework, sometimes with an added fairing for aerodynamics, pretty much since they were first invented.

The Sharker breaks this tradition by using its sexy carbon bodywork to support the rider, engine, and wheels, resulting in both lower weight and improved stiffness. Performance is impressive, with 140 horses ready to propel the Sharker to over 60 MPH in four seconds. Top speed can vary between 125 and 174 MPH depending on gearing choices.

Neat. So what do you think -- is this what motorcycles of the future will look like? No. Is it still cool looking though? A little. Is this what a motorcycle inspired dildo would look like? Absolutely.
