2014 "Asymmetric Aero" 1950 Triumph Thunderbird

Second Floor - Industry

The “Asymmetric Aero” is the fastest unstreamlined pushrod-engine motorcycle in the world for all capacities under 1000cc, but its speed is not why it has been included. The “Aero” was 3D-sketched as a unit with a rider, an approach which resulted in a minimized frontal area, eliminating dead-air pockets and reducing wind resistance. It meant pulling builder and rider Alp Sungurtekin’s body into a gapless bond with the chassis, where he positions his head, arms, and torso a bit to one side in an asymmetrical reflection of the motorcycle itself.
