There are some builds on the market on the planet that make a ton of sense. There are others that shrink back from the mainstream, however find yourself wanting very distinctive and novel. There are additionally others which can be a bit questionable, however nonetheless removed from being downright dumb.
This one, nonetheless, could take the cake. Effectively, that’s a little bit of an understatement. This “customized” bike took your entire cake, the bakery, the oven, and the baker. Hyperbolics apart, the video’s title tells you all about it, it’s positively “the craziest bike ever.” The poor Honda most likely by no means thought that it will find yourself wanting like this.
Posted about 9 months in the past from the time of this text’s writing, the video continues to be relatively stunning, intriguing, or appalling, relying on how have a look at it. Nevertheless, irrespective of how you narrow it, this factor positively can’t and won’t ever be protected. Professor Pardal most likely made a superb name filming in the midst of nowhere as a result of he and his colleague threw some stuff on the propeller, and it promptly shredded it to bits.
Following that, we now have a literal parachute positioned behind the “bike” to see simply how a lot air the propeller was shifting. It didn’t take an enormous engine to maneuver that a lot air both because it seems like a single-cylinder four-stroke from a small bike (it’s most likely the motor of the Honda base bike that they used). Previous to that, even, the wind generated by the wood propeller was additionally sufficient to show an umbrella inside-out.
What’s even crazier is that it’s really “rideable.” I exploit that time period loosely and with quotes as a result of it will possibly positively propel itself (pun meant) in a straight line and is seen to have the ability to lean and switch, no less than on a mud street.
One factor’s for positive, nonetheless, this little customized bike’s positively not passing any automobile technical inspection. I imply, except for the large propeller protruding, what wheel drive is it even? No wheel drive? Let’s say that they handed this bike on to the Euro NCAP only for giggles, it’ll positively fail with flying colours for pedestrian security.
All jokes apart (to be truthful, I did beat on it fairly a bit), the construct did its job, illustrating a really elementary aeronautical propulsion idea, albeit on a motorbike. Props to Professor Pardal for dreaming this design up and testing it far-off from civilization, however the least they may have executed was worn a helmet simply in case. Oh nicely, what’s executed is finished, and the video has now climbed to 31 million views on YouTube.
