Have you even watched Men in Black which stars one of the most accoladed colored actors Will Smith? Or the two-wheel bike in Tron movie as well. These films introduced us futuristic vehicles which comes with the wheels with no spoke at all.

Surely this will sparks lights on how car and motorbike manufacturers will make their vehicles in the future.

Actually, a former Formula One driver from Brazil, Tarso Marques, has already adopted this idea to transform its work into a motorbike equipped with two spokeless wheels. These 36-inch wheels are also the biggest motorbike wheels ever.

Aside from the monolithic wheels, the vehicle is home to a host of other equipment as well. They are a 2-gallon oil reservoir, 4-gallon aluminum fuel tank, and retractable lighting.

The inventor gave it the name after Alberto Santos Dumont, a famous Brazilian aviation pioneer. We can call it the TMC Dumont bike.

It just achieved the title of Best in Show at the 77th Daytona Beach Bike Week in Florida earlier this year of which Tarso Marques considered to be a great chance to show the American how creative and innovative a Brazilian can be.

"My greatest motivation was to show the Americans our capacity for creation and innovation with a 100% national project", he said.
