Electric bike concept inspired by Ossa Grand Prix racer
This electric concept bike takes the styling of an Ossa Grand Prix ridden in late 1960s by Santiago Herrero and brings it into the 21st century.
From Barcelona design studio ART-TIC the Monocasco takes its styling cues from Ossa's monocoque racing bike that was introduced at the end of the 1960s. Spain's first motorcycle Grand Prix hero, Herrero took the bike to four victories before his fatal crash in the 1970 Isle of Man TT.
The Moncasco model is so far only a preliminary design concept for Ossa. But if it ever becomes a reality - with this and Honda's RC-E - I'm warming to the idea of electric bikes, especially if they can look this good.
