Have you ever imagined driving a Porsche motorbike?

Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini are globally well known for making hypercars. But sometimes, these high-end automakers dip their toe into the realm of two-wheeled vehicles. Let’s peep at 5 concept motorcycles wearing the badge of these luxury car marques.

1. Porsche concept motorcycles

The most renowned Porsche motorcycle is the Design Alternative Motorrad Konzept. This unique concept received a big help from the Harley-Davidson on the front-end engineering, particularly with the Revolution engine and  the VR1000 racer seen in the V-Rod.

The 1978 concept based on the Yamaha SR500, in spite of being less famous than the Design Alternative Motorrad Konzept, it’s so stylish that it is described as “a Ghillie Suit appropriate for a Mardi-gras hunting party.” However, its practicality is low since its wheels might never spin.

2. Amir Glinik’s Ferrari motorycle

An astonishing set of 3D renderings of a Ferrari concept motorcycle designed by Amir Glinik was leaked 5 years ago. Amir Glinik’s concept proves that motorcycles and Maranello are an intoxicant blend. Nowadays, this one-off concept still lives in the virtual world in the form of finely-detailed computer examples of classic Harley-Davidsons.

3. Lamborghini motorcycle

This Lamborghini concept motorcycle spouted up in mid-1980s as a French project. At that time, the Mimran brothers took over the Raging Bull brand and Patrick Mimran appointed Boxer Design and Claunde Fior frame specialist to design a real Lambor motorbikes. This model features an aluminum frame and packs a Kawasaki power plant. Rumor has it that only 5 or 6 Lamborghini motorcycles were produce, yet the true figure is under 40.

4. Lotus C-01

Designed by Daniel Simon, this Lotus motorcycle is allegedly blessed with a KTM RC8 engine with 200 hp. Its price starts from $137,000 (N49.3 million) that is reasonable because of an extensive use of carbon fiber and titanium. Still, the release date remains secret for now.

5. Lauge Jensen "Viking"

Its design is drawn by Henrik Fisker who is best famed for the Fisker Karma electric sports sedan and Aston Martin DB9. The Fisker concept motorcycle is considered as an excellent example of classic vehicle design and is motivated by a derived version of the Harley’s S&S V-twin Euro IV-compliant engine which is capable of making 100 hp and topping out 130 mph.
